The Pension plans under the National Pension System (NPS) are defined contribution plans. During a person's working life, he/she can subscribe to NPS and make contributions to their Individual Pension Account. This will enable them to build a pension corpus from which a regular income will be generated after retirement.

  • Custodian: Stock Holding Corporation of India Ltd. (SHCIL), which maintains custody of the underlying securities.

The NPS is open to Indian citizens between the ages of 18 and 70.

  • Tier I – It is mandatory NPS account with restrictions on withdrawal.
  • Tier II – It is optional savings account from which subscribers can withdraw funds at any time.

Particulars Tier I Tier II

Definitely. As with any other pension scheme(s), NPS can be voluntarily subscribed to. NPS accounts cannot be held by the same individual at the same time.

To determine the pension amount, the subscriber must contribute, accrue, and earn returns on investments, as well as utilize some of the corpus to purchase annuities through any of the Annuity Service Providers registered with the PFRDA.

ELSS is a type of mutual fund that mainly invests in stocks. It helps you save on taxes according to Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Many people choose it to save on taxes.

People put their money into an ELSS fund. This money is then used to buy different company stocks. The person managing the fund aims to make money by investing in various types of stocks.

Investing in ELSS can help you save taxes. You can get tax deductions of up to ₹1.5 lakh under Section 80C. Also, if you hold onto your investment for over a year, any profit you make up to ₹1 lakh is tax-free.

You need to keep your money in ELSS for at least three years. This means you can't take it out before three years have passed since you invested it.

No. Although you have to keep your money in ELSS for three years, after that, you can take it out if you want. But remember, taking it out early might not give you the best returns because the stock market can be unpredictable.

Because ELSS invests in stocks, it's affected by how the stock market behaves. This means the value of your investment can go up and down based on how well or poorly the stock market is doing. Unlike other tax-saving options like PPF or NSC, ELSS doesn't guarantee fixed returns.

Yes, Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) can invest in ELSS, but they need to follow specific rules set by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).

Investing in ELSS is like investing in mutual funds. You can invest directly through the Aditya Birla Money App. It's also a good idea to talk to a financial advisor who can help you choose the right ELSS fund based on your financial goals and how much risk you're comfortable with.

There’s no upper limit on how much you can invest in ELSS. However, the tax benefit under Section 80C is limited to ₹1.5 lakh per financial year.

Yes, many ELSS funds offer the option to invest through SIP, allowing you to invest a fixed amount regularly over time.

ELSS funds are typically recommended for long-term goals due to the mandatory lock-in period of three years. They may not be suitable for short-term goals where you may need access to your money sooner.

ELSS funds primarily invest in equity and equity-related instruments, aiming for capital appreciation over the long term. Unlike other mutual funds, ELSS funds offer tax benefits under Section 80C.

Yes, many mutual fund companies allow investors to switch between different ELSS funds without any tax implications. However, it's essential to consider the associated costs and potential impact on returns before making a switch.

If you forget to claim tax deductions for your ELSS investment in a particular financial year, you can still claim it in subsequent years within the overall limit of ₹1.5 lakh under Section 80C.

Yes, dividends received from ELSS funds are taxable in the hands of the investor as per their applicable income tax slab rates.

Yes, some financial institutions allow investors to pledge their ELSS units as collateral for loans. However, it's essential to understand the terms and conditions associated with such arrangements.

If you redeem your ELSS units after the completion of the three-year lock-in period, the proceeds are entirely tax-free in your hands. You can reinvest or use the money as per your financial needs.

ELSS funds are more suitable for investors willing to take some risk for potentially higher returns over the long term. Conservative investors may prefer safer investment options with lower exposure to equities.

All of us know that shareholders normally exercised their votes on resolutions proposed by companies through postal ballot. If a company decides to pass any resolution by resorting to postal ballot, it will send a notice to all the shareholders, requesting them to send their assent or dissent in writing on a postal ballot. The process—of seeking shareholders' approval through postal ballot—is not only time consuming but also involves huge cost such as administration and posting costs, paper work, etc. To avoid all these hassles, the new Companies Act 2013, has introduced the concept of voting through electronic means.

E-voting is a common Internet Infrastructure that enables the investors to vote electronically on resolution of companies. Electronic voting replaces the postal ballot process and saves time and cost of the company. e-Voting is a mechanism through which security holders of companies can vote on resolutions electronically any-where and at any-time during the period of voting, through the electronic voting system developed by NSDL and CDSL. In case of e-voting, there is no physical collection and counting of postal ballot papers. Also, there is no need for verification of signatures of the shareholders who have exercised their votes.

e-voting platform service agencies:

In order to solve the problems faced with the postal ballot, NSDL and CDSL have developed an internet based e-voting platform which enables shareholders to vote electronically in a convenient manner. 'User ID' and 'Password' are provided to the shareholders by the agency providing e-voting platform. In case of joint shareholding, e-voting option will be available only to the first shareholder. E-voting facility is available to shareholders holding shares in physical form as well as in demat form.

Electronic voting system:

According to Companies Act 2013, every listed company or a company having at least 1,000 shareholders should provide to its members the facility to exercise their right to vote at general meetings by electronic means. Section 108 of the Companies Act, 2013 deals with the voting through electronic means. E-voting system records votes of the members / shareholders of a company.
