If you have a complaint or a question, you can use the central grievance management system provided by NSDL or Karvy, the two entities involved in the National Pension Scheme’s core record-keeping operation. Authorities in charge of grievance redressal agencies are also in charge of escalations. There is the Problem Redressal Officer, and if it does not settle the grievance, you can contact the Chief Grievance Redressal Officer. There are also two levels of escalation for any issue that you may have with NPS exits. Even if your complaint is not handled, you can contact the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority directly.
NSDL CRA (NPS Customer Care) may be reached at (022) 2499 3499. You can also file a grievance online with the NSDL CRA’s Central Grievance Management System (CGMS) here or with Karvy CRA here. In the NPS, NSDL and Karvy are Central Recordkeeping Agencies (CRAs).

The National Pension System (NPS) is a voluntary retirement savings program that allows members to make specific contributions to planned savings, therefore ensuring the future in the form of a pension. It is an attempt to find a long-term solution to the challenge of providing enough retirement income to every Indian citizen.
Subscribers may use the accumulated pension wealth under the scheme to acquire a life annuity from a PFRDA-empanelled life insurance firm at the time of customary withdrawal from the scheme, in addition to taking a portion of the accumulated pension wealth as a lump sum if they want. The PFRDA is the nodal agency for NPS implementation and monitoring.
A resident or non-resident Indian citizen is subject to the following conditions:
Q1. How to open an NPS Account?
Follow the steps below:
As a Subscriber between the ages of 18 and 65, you can obtain your PRAN application form from any of the Points of Presence – Service Providers (POP-SP) with whom you choose to register.
You must complete your PRAN application form (picture, signature, required data, scheme choice details, etc.) and provide KYC paperwork (proof of identification and proof of address). Please see the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority’s (PFRDA) offer document for further information on NPS.
You can submit the PRAN application along with the KYC papers to your local POP-SP. CRA will send your PRAN card to your communication address.
POP-SP will provide you with a receipt number after you submit your PRAN application. Track the status of your PRAN application by entering the receipt number into the following link: https://cra-nsdl.com/CRA/pranCardStatusInput.do
When you register for registration with any POP-SP, you must pay your initial contribution (minimum of Rs 500). You must submit an NCIS (Instruction Slip) detailing the money paid to your PRAN account in order to do so.
