The Aadhar card is the primary KYC. The mobile number and Aadhar card are highly recommended to be obtained from the subscriber for a smooth operation of the APY scheme. In case, the details of the Aadhar card are not available during registration, they can be submitted later.
To simply put, under the Atal Pension Yojana scheme, the subscribers receive the guaranteed monthly pension. The benefit of a minimum pension is guaranteed by the government of India. One of the key Atal Pension Yojna benefits is that even the employees of the private sector can subscribe to the scheme. The subscribers simply need to choose the contribution amount as it will affect the returns.
The Indian government co-contributes 50% of the subscribers' contribution or even Rs 1000, whatever is low. The co-contribution of the government is accessible for those uncovered by any of the Statutory Social Security Schemes and has not been paying the income tax.
The Indian government will co-contribute to every entitled subscriber, for 05-years who joins the APY scheme between 2015, June 01 to 2015, December 31. The benefit of 05-years of the government co-contribution within the Atal Pension Yojana should not exceed 05-years for the subscriber that includes the Swavalamban beneficiaries’ migration. Moreover, all the bank account holders can also join the Atal Pension Yojana scheme.
The table below shows the indicative monthly contribution:
|Entry Age||Monthly Pension of Rs 1000||Monthly Pension of Rs 2000||Monthly Pension of Rs 3000||Monthly Pension of Rs 4000||Monthly Pension of Rs 5000|
