In my last blog, we have seen how you can invest with NPS, benefits of NPS and where your money going to invest in NPS. Today we will check out how this small and regular monthly investment in NPS can create big corpus and guaranteed PENSION plan for TENSION FREE LIFE.

NPS at Retirement

At the age of 60 yrs you have 3 options with NPS:-

1) You can continue your investment till the age of 70.
2) You can defer your withdrawal till the age of 70 with no new investment.
3) Exit from the NPS.

First and second options indicate more investment with more benefit of compounding for another 10 years, and wait of 10 years for the pension with no new investment for getting the advantage of compounding interest respectively.

Let’s discuss the 3rd option in detail as it has all the limelight i.e. exit from the NPS
At the time of exit, you will get choices of lump sum and pension (annuity).

Withdrawal limit of LUMP SUM – 0% to 60% of the total corpus generated that is TAX-FREE.

So PENSION will get 40% to 100% of total corpus generated with NO TAX EXEMPTION.

Now NPS going to give this pension corpus TO APS (Annuity Service Providers) i.e. looking after your pension plans like LIC, SBI LIFE, HDFC LIFE & ICICI PRU. They will make your pension plans according to your requirements with a 6% interest rate currently.

Generally, all APS provides the following four plans,

1) Plan 1 – Pension for life.
2) Plan 2 – Pension for life with Return of Purchase price on death to your NOMINEE.
3) Plan 3 – Pension for life with a 100% pension to your spouse after your death.
4) Plan 4 – Pension for Life with a 100% pension to your spouse with the return of Purchase price on the death of the last survivor to Nominee.

Let’s check it with an example:-

If your age is 30 years and you invest 12,000 Rs per month in NPS, so at the age of 60 years your total investment will be 43, 20,000 Rs, and with compounding effect at an interest rate of 12% your total corpus becomes 4.23 Cr Rs.

Now with this corpus, if we select 50% lump sum and 50% pension plan so tax-free 2.11 Cr Rs goes to lump sum and remaining 2.11 Cr Rs goes to the pension plan.

With this pension corpus if we can choose any of the above 4 mentioned plans so monthly pension comes to as follow;
1) Plan 1 – Pension for life, you will get 1, 54,081 Rs per month.

2) Plan 2 – Pension for life with Return of Purchase price on death to your NOMINEE, you will get
    1, 13,840 Rs per month.

3) Plan 3 – Pension for life with 100% pension to your spouse after your death, you will get 1, 32,725 Rs per month.

4) Plan 4 – Pension for Life with 100% pension to your spouse with the return of Purchase price on the death of the last survivor to Nominee, you will get 1,13,134 Rs per month.

You can get the same or even higher corpus then above mentioned examples in spite of lesser investment amount if you start investing in NPS at the age of 20.

Remember it’s all about time for compounding advantage.

आसान आदत से पैसे कैसे बचाएं??

ये BLOG उन लोगों के लिए नहीं हैं जो जन्म से ही अमीर है और जिन्हे FINANCIAL PLANNING  जैसे शब्द से दुर दुर तक कुछ लेना देना नहीं, पर ये BLOG उन लोगों के लिए बहुत उपयोगी है जो पैसों की SAVINGS करना तो चाहते है पर पता नहीं कैसे? या फिर उन लोगों के लिए जो हमेशा COMPLAIN करते रहते है की मेरे पास ENOUGH पैसे नहीं है की कुछ SAVE कर पाऊं या फिर वो लोग जिन्हे महीने के अंत तक पैसो की SHORTAGE रहती हैं।

पैसों को SAVE करने की HABIT कोई COMPLICATED चीज़ नहीं हैं, ये बहुत ही आसान है बस इसको REGULARITY नाम के शब्द से जोड़ दे और फिर देखिये कमाल!!!

ये HABIT को कैसे DEVELOPE करें? बहुत आसान है, आप अपने दिन के सभी खर्च की लिस्ट बनाये और फिर उसमे से वो बिनजरूरी, बेमतलब, फिज़ूल खर्च की तरफ गौर करें जिन्हे आप अगर शायद ना करते तो भी आपकी लाइफ मैं कुछ फर्क नहीं पड़ता, देखिये मैं आपको यहाँ कंजूस होने के लिए नहीं कह रहा हूँ, पर वो खर्च जिसे आप नहीं करोगे तो आपको नुकसान नहीं होगा बल्कि फायदा होगा पैसे बचाने का। और क्योंकि हमें LIST बनाने की आदत नहीं हैं ये फिज़ूल के खर्च को हम कभी TRACK ही नहीं कर पाते।

DIVIDEND वाले MUTAL FUNDS सही है क्या??

हमें STOCKS मैं DIVIDEND अच्छा लगता हैं। फिर हम MUTUAL FUNDS में DIVIDEND वाला OPTION क्यों पसंद नहीं करते, MUTUAL FUNDS भी तो एक तरह से STOCK MARKET की तरह ही काम करता हैं। शायद हम इसके बारे मैं जानते ही नहीं या फिर हमारे FINANCIAL ADVISOR कभी हमें इसके बारे मैं बताते ही नहीं। हम ज्यादातर इसे नकारते हैं, पर सोचो अगर ये नकार ने लायक होता तो ये सारी AMC COMPANIES ने ये DIVIDEND वाला OPTION क्यों रखा?  LETS THROW SOME LIGHT ON IT. 
ये कैसे काम करता हैं? आपके MUTUAL FUNDS की NAV आपके पैसों की PERFORMANCE दिखाती हैं। GROWTH वाले OPTION में NAV मतलब (PRICE + BONUS + EXPENSE RATIO + DIVIDEND), और DIVIDEND वाले OPTION में NAV मतलब (PRICE + BONUS + EXPENSE RATIO) वो DIVIDEND आपको REGULAR हर साल या हर महीने आपको मिलता रहता हे। अब जब आपको REGULAR DIVIDEND चुकाया जा रहा हे इस लिए आपके FUNDS  की NAV की PERFORMANCE GROWTH वाले OPTION की तुलना में कम होती हैं, पर DIVIDEND के REGULAR PAYMENTS से आपको अपने INVESTMENTS के पैसों का फल GROWTH वाले OPTION से पहले मिलने लगेगा।
