‘T’ depends on the cut-off time for Settlement which varies between 10.30 am to 11.00 am, however, may change depending upon other settlement factors.

Definitions:

A. One-way switch: Under the functionality of one-way switch, the subscriber has an option to transfer funds from Tier II to Tier I account, however, the vice-versa is not allowed.

B. Rebalancing: In the case of subscribers who have opted ‘Auto choice’ investment option, the percentage of investment in the asset classes E/C/G will change as per the subscriber’s age as given in the ‘Life cycle Investment Matrix’. The change happens on the date of birth of the subscriber. In this process, the existing assets, to the extent of change, are redeemed and reinvested as per the new allocation ratio.

C. Partial withdrawal: Subscriber, who has been in NPS for at least 3 years, can withdraw maximum of 25% of the contributions made by the Subscriber (excluding returns thereof and employer contribution, if any). Partial withdrawal can be availed maximum of three times with the condition that the subscriber will receive maximum of 25% of own contributions made between two partial withdrawals.
