What is PRAN, what will happen now
Under NPS, subscribers are given a Permanent Retirement Account Number (PRAN). Which is unique. Subscribers can have one active PRAN at a time and because of this they can empty a new account after closing their existing NPS account. Under the NPS, the subscriber can opt for premature exit or exit at the age of 60 or at any time after receiving superannuation as per the regulation.
In case of premature exit, up to 20% of the pension corpus deposited in PRAN can be withdrawn simultaneously and the balance will be used to purchase annuity plan with the annuity service provider proposed by PFRDA. There, the regulator said that nowadays PFRDA is getting a lot of requests from subscribers. He has withdrawn his amount but has not taken the annuity yet and these subscribers have since decided to make the NPS account public.
