Given the expected 10 per cent return annually, the total investment will grow into Rs 7.39 crore.

How Much Risk Is There In NPS?

Recently, the PFRDA made it mandatory for fund managers to assign ratings based on risk level of the NPS scheme. The new rules mandate six levels of risk — Low Risk, Low to Moderate Risk, Moderate Risk, Moderately High Risk, High Risk, and Very High Risk. Based on the scheme characteristics, pension funds shall assign risk levels for the Schemes E-Tier 1, E-Tier 2, C-Tier 1, C-Tier -2, G-Tier-1, G- Tier-2 and Scheme A, according to a PFRDA circular.

The ratings system will help subscribers have a better idea of the risk involved in their investments under the NPS. They will be able to take a better decision on the allocation of investment to various asset classes schemes at the time of enrolment into the scheme and at the time of making subsequent contributions to the schemes.
