Banks have been instructed to sell these products latest by 31st May, but depending on the people’s choice the enrollment date may be extended further to 31st August, 2015.

Hasmukh Adhia, Financial Services Secretary, said, “The schemes are launched for a shorter period so people make a quick decision to take the essential insurance cover.”

On the other hand, Atal Pension Yojana (APY) is a pension scheme targeted at people in the unorganized sector. The scheme is applicable to subscribers aged 18 to 40 years, with valid bank accounts. The scheme aims to benefit people who do not have a social security or who do not fall under the income tax bracket. However, subscribers must enroll before 31st December 2015 to avail this year’s government contribution.

Under APY plan, the benefactor will receive a guaranteed pension from 60 years onwards. Depending on the investment done, the subscriber will get monthly pension from Rs. 1000- Rs. 5000.  Aadhar number is not mandatory for enrolling in the pension scheme.
