    • Hi,

      My Query is APY premium calculation.

      Can understand that premium for APY is fixed based on pension amount and age [completed years]. e.g. for 5000 pension premium[Rs. 902] will be same for the persons with age 35 Years 1 month and 35 years 11 months. The younger person will pay 10 additional monthly premium installment and end up getting the same pension.

  19. Hot cancel and get the money back to my account. I have paid 2 instalments and want to cancel now. Please help…….

  20. Sir,

    Can we open seprate accounts for Husband and Wife? After 60 will both be eligible to recieve pension.

  21. Meri age 29 year hai,5000 pension ke liye 529/- per month pay karna h, mujhe pata karna hai ki ye same amount 529/- mujhe 60 year tak pay karna ha ya ye age ke hisab se per month change hoti rahegi
    like- 30yr to 577/-
    31yr to 630/- every year this amount change or same
    if I die at the age of 61 or 62 then what will happen scheme will contiu to my wife or not
    & if wife also expire then.
    if I die at the age of 51 or 55 then what will happen scheme will contiu to my wife or not
    & if wife also expire then.

    • pmjandhanyogana

      Your premium amount would remain same. In case you die after 60 years then your wife if alive will get your share of pension. After you wife expires your nominee will get rs 8.5 lakhs. If you die before 60 years then your nominee will get the amount you have deposited with interest.

      • I am also 29, there is a premium of Rs.529/pm for 5000 pension.

        if I die at the age of 50 then what will happen scheme will continue to my wife or not
        & is she liable to pay premium for next 10 years ?

        if both husband and wife die at the age of 70 or 75 then what will happen scheme will continue to nominee (children) if they get the 8.5 lakh amount ?

        I think there should be a proper training for Bank employees interacting with us. They confused us a lot and don’t know the exact scheme properly. They told me that if i got the pension and died at the age of 61 (both husband and wife) Children (nominee) get nothing, Its all bullshit if its right. Plz answer. I only continue with it if there is a provision of nominee 8.5lakh amount after or before death of parents.

  22. APY plan seems doesnot have any insurance coverage incase of death.

  23. If you are saying for tds deduction they are giving you interest @ 8.5% and in APY person is getting 8 % so this means this is already tds deducted amount.

    Secondly the person who are not falling under TDS criteria, they are more interested in this scheme.

    There should be one change in this scheme that if any person die before 60 years than this account should remain active and the nominee should get pension immediately after death of the subscriber. In this case you can set the half amount of Pension. Suppose any subscriber apply for Rs 5000/- pension scheme and dies before the age of sixty his wife or nominee should get at least pension of Rs 2500/- per month immediately after his death.

      • The bank says , there is no provision in their website for changing the Nominee. Can you please provide the details how and where the nominee details have to be changed.


    Where I will get APY Certificate and where I will collect the pension amount.

    • pmjandhanyogana

      • Is there any profs or card will be provided? I have not received anything as of now but SBI is saying that certificate will be couriered by Govt agency directly.
        I am little bit of worried on what happened post 60 yrs on this investment.

    • pmjandhanyogana

      SBI should come up with online facility for atal pension yojana in future but currently they do not have this.

  69. Respected Sir/Madam
    With due respect I would like to say that I filled a form for Atal Pension Yojana in SBI with correct information but after few days I got a message that Rs 376 was deducted from my account which was not correct as my age is 27 and the deduction was for the age of 25 when I went to my bank they said the date of birth in my account was 3/9/89 and hence the amount deducted was Rs 376. they asked me to fill the KYC form and even blamed me that I filled my date of birth wrong which is absurd and impossible but after listening to that I submitted my KYC with copy of my passport and they said my APY will be corrected and after I went to my bank I was astonished bye the behavior of bank employees as they said nothing can be happen and there is no problem with wrong D.O.B. When i requested them that we should comply by law of the land they started lingering me and I am now writing you this to get help from your side and the concerned authority. The ifsc code of my bank is SBIN0010079.

    when atal pention yogna will start, because in axis bank kalol asked that this yogana not to be started.

    • Axis should have started atal pension yojana. You can call the customer care of axis bank to get yourself enrolled. In the joint account case the person having the first name can apply for apy. Person having the second name need to open a separate account.

  84. Just a single question. What do they exactly mean by this line?

    After both are gone then Nominee will get the corpus amount of rs 8.5 lakhs.

    Who gets this amount and when?

    • Suppose you have enrolled in Atal pension Yojana. You will start getting pension after you have turned 60. After you die then your spouse will continue to get your share of pension. After both of you are gone your nominee will get the corpus amount which is rs 8.5 lakhs for rs 5000 pension plan.



    • you should get an sms as soon as you are enrolled in atal pension yojana. Since this is a new scheme the sms function may not be working properly. You can call the customer care of the bank to ask this.

  86. When is the last date to enroll APY?

  87. Hi Team, I have an existing NPS account with Tier-1 as I work for an IT company. Recently I applied for APY in Axis Bank. While entering the details on the site, the bank official entered my existing NPS account number in the site as it is mentioned, if you have an existing NPS account, please enter the PRAN number. However, what I am confused is, the receipt which the Bank has given me has a new PRAN number in it. When I asked about it to the Bank, they said, this is the standard print format from NPS site made available to the banks and we need to check with APY on why a new PRAN number is shown in the receipt. One thing I can confirm is the Bank official has entered my existing PRAN number in front of me in the site. I am witness to it, but still I got a new PRAN number. Can you please help me understand if there is any problem with this and will I be able to view my APY details online in the NPS website along with my existing PRAN number? Please advise.

    Thank you.

  89. sudip bhattacherjee

    Say i am joining this scheme for Rs.5000/-, and the current age is now – 35, so i will pay the amount of Rs.902/- p.m i.e. yearly 10,824/- p.a. and it will continue for 25 yers long. But if may it will happen that i or my family cant pay the amount further after 5 or 10 years. then what will happen with my deposit money ??

    • if in future you suffer from some critical decease then you can request your bank to stop this scheme and get your money with interest refunded. In other cases you have a buffer time of 2 years in which you can replay your money. You can opt for a less pension amount if you are not sure of your future finances

  90. Kuntal Chakraborty

    Kindly clear below queries :-

    1) Now my age is 34 yrs. If i unable to continue after 15 years what happen then?

    2) I want to get lump sum amount after 60 years age, it is possible or not?

    3) After my death (age of 65 yrs.), Nominee will get lump sum amount of Rs.8.5 lac?

    4) Any Critical or Urgent situation will come , then can i get the deposited amount with interest at that time?

    • pmjandhanyogana

      1) If die to medical reasons you are not able to continue then you can stop this scheme. Otherwise you cannot. You have a buffer period of 2 years in which you are allowed to repay after then account is frozen
      2) No this is not possible
      3) After your death your spouse if alive will get your share of pension after both of you die then your nominee will get rs 8.5 laks for rs 500 atal pension plan.
      4) I could not get your point, can you please elaborate

      • kuntal Chakraborty

        Kindly clear my query :-

        1) After account frozen what is the procedure to getting my principal amount & when?

        2) Any critical situation (like:- Daughter marriage/Family medical expense) will come, then can i received the amount which i already pay.

      • pmjandhanyogana

        1) Government has not disclosed much about the frozen Atal Pension Yojana accounts
        2) Subscriber can request for a discontinue in case of any serious health issues.

  91. Can i deactivate the atal pension yojana?

  92. Dear Sir, I was looking for this reply. My questions is , how? How do I make sure that the PRAN for my Tier 1, Tier 2 and APY are the same ? Will the APY module of the bank sync this info with PFRDA and make sure they remain unique? Or the NPS subscriber will have to write to some authorities to make sure that they stay unique.

    • pmjandhanyogana

      i do not have the answer to your question that is why i just approved it so that if any other reader have any such kind of situation he could comment and let us know.

  93. Dear Sir, I subscribed for APY on 29th June 2015 at my SBI branch. I have requested the debit of the premium on every 2nd of the month. The branch promptly entered all my details in the APY module of SBI. Since I already have a NPS Tier 1 and Tier 2 account and is currently having a PRAN. I also informed the branch of the PRAN that I already have. But till date the premium has not been deducted, neither I have been sent any SMS of a new PRAN or enablement of this scheme. Will the PRAN for APY be a new one or will it be merged to my existing PRAN containing Tier 1 and Tier 2? SBI has entered in APY module, but how do I know if the CRA has alloted me a new PRAN or done somthing with my old PRAN. The Bank is unable to say anything since they only know to enter the data in the APY module and know nothing beyond that.

  94. My daughter is student. She has opened Atal Pension Yojana a/c with BOB. Can you tell me if she get the job with Govt.organization then how this APY will function for him ?

  95. dear sir i had joined Atal pension Yojana scheme last month but still the amount was not debited for the month from my account…i asked my home branch bank they i didnt aware about the details..kindly clarify me when the amount was debited every month

    • pmjandhanyogana

      since atal pension yojana is a new scheme so even banks and we are not aware of these initial glitches.

  96. Praveen Agarwal

    Can I change nominee name after applying or after few years and before 60 years.

  97. I want to opt for the pension scheme but my account is zero balance account in the scheme of pradhan mantri dhan jan yojna and the bank officials are saying you cannot opt for the pension scheme if it is zero balance account. Is it True?? Can’t we go for the pension scheme with zero balance account??

    • pmjandhanyogana

      Atal pension yojana would require a monthly debit of certain amount each month for a long time. So you should have some balance in your account for auto debit to take place.

  98. Sir,

    I deposit first month instalment for APY. But i want close this plan. How to close this plan? bez every month auto deduct from my account

    waiting your reply

  101. Sir, As 30-40 years time is quite long,if the Govt. changes,
    then would this scheme still continue?

    • pmjandhanyogana

      Since government of India is the guarantor of this scheme so even if a there is a change in power they cannot overrule the previous schemes. They may not allow new apy subscribers but they have to fulfill the already enrolled persons.

      Government will credit you a maximum of rs 1000 per year in your atal pension account for max 5 years only. Please read the terms and conditions to avail government contribution.
      Suppose you are not a tax payer and does not have an epf account then you will get this contribution in that particular year. If suppose you are out of the terms and conditions then you will not get the contribution for that particular year. But this will not impact the money received previous year.

      Aadhar card is currently not mandatory for enrolling in any government scheme including Atal Pension Yojana.

    and if no so wats the process to stop this scheme from my account .

  151. What if, this APY holder’s death occurs before the age of 60? What do the the spouse and nominee gets?

    • pmjandhanyogana

      is atal pension yojana account holder dies before attaining 60 years of age then his/her spouse if alive will get the accumulated amount with interest. If spouse is also not alive then the amount with interest would be given to nominee.

  152. I am working in private company and have EPF account, but I have joined Rs 5000 scheme, will it affect my debit amount.

      2) Pension would be taxable
      3) you cannot take any tax benefits of the APY premium contribution
      4) Interest on APy is still not disclosed.

  155. Hello Sir,

    I had opened an APY but later realised that I have PPF account and hence won’t be eligible for this. Hence I raised a request to discontinue my account. My bank raised a request for the same. Today, 5000 got deducted under for my APY account. How can this be possible. My EMI is 446.
    Please loon into this and resolve this ASAP.

    • pmjandhanyogana

      Even PPF account holders are eligible for this scheme. So this cannot be the reason to discontinue APY. You will have to contact bank for any deduction related query.

  156. Can I change account number once given under the plan ?what is the process??

  157. Sir, I am a Government Employee and have pension after retirement. My age is 34 years can I open Atal Pension Yojana.

  159. Respected sir

    if After 5 or 10 year i eligible for tax payer can i get the benefit of Atal Pension Yojana Pleas Explain

  160. I subscribed for Atal Pension Yojana on 19-06-2015 from State Bank of India, SBIXXXXX, Sagar road Branch, macherla Guntur Dist. AP. The Bank authorities gave an acknowledgement no.XXXXXX to me. after that I did not receive any information on APY. Plz guide me.

  162. Bhabani Sankar Nayak

    Dear Sir,
    I want to enrol myself in Atal pension yogana now but the last date was in June . So can I enrol now?

    With Regards

    Bhabani Sankar Nayak

  163. Sir, I have NPS Tier I account and when I downloaded the APY form, it has a declaration which says “I do not hold any pre-existing account under NPS”. It seems, someone already have asked this question. Did you get any clarification, whether we can enroll for both NPS and APY and if yes, then how?

    • yes I had asked this question to customer care they said you can ignore that point. According to me just write a note in the application form that you already have NPS account and get a copy of that with you.

  164. sir, I hve a confusion regarding my premium i.e i have to sumbit my premium upto 40yrs or upto 60 yrs …plz clearify the confusion

  165. Hi,

    I have applied for apy in SBI on29th July and updated 1st Aug as debit date of premium. I have received the PRAN from bank but amount did not get debited neither I received any SMS from their end. Kindly advise.

  166. Sir,

    I went to HDFC Bank last month June 2015 and have enrolled the Pension yojana, however since then money did not debit from my account. When i am calling bank authorities they are saying request submitted.

    When i call government tool free number they are saying the process is with Bank? what needs to do here?

    Please let us know.

    • Yes tHe Bank needs to give you this required information. You can call the customer care of the bank and lock a complaint against this.

  167. Sorry to make many questions at a single stretch,

    1.If the policy holder expires before 60, will lump sum amount will be paid to nominee or spouse get the pension amount immediately or do the spouse need to pay premium for remaining term?
    2.If no premium deposited for 24 months, the account gets closed. What will happen to corpus accumulated?
    3.Is it possible to withdraw Lump sum amount / accumulated corpus amount after start of pension by self or by spouse due to death of policy holder?
    4.If the spouse and nominee are same, how will it work for providing pension to spouse and lump sum to nominee?
    5.Minimum 20 years we have to pay the premium, so if a person starts to pay premium at the age of 30 and expired at the age of 55 (paid premium for 20 years and stopped), will his spouse get the pension soon after his death or how it works?

    • 1) In this case the the accumulated amount with interest at that time in APY account would be given to spouse if alive other wise it woulds be given to nominee.
      2) Government has not clarified much on this.
      3) Answer same as 1)
      4) Nominee should be different from the spouse in this policy
      5) 20 years is the minimum period is for a person starting the policy at the age of 40.

  168. if i wish do quit from APY why i can not..? if i am not in condition to pay amount then what should i do ?
    can the amount of contribution decreased…?

    • there is no way currently in which you can get any APY statement. Since the scheme guarantees of proving the fixed pension so it seems there is no need of providing any statements.

    • this seems to be a common problem with lot of the subscribers. The process is long but effective. You have to raise an offical complaint about the same in your bank get complaint id with you. Even after your complaint in the bank does not respond then use this complaint ID and raise a new complaint in RBI.

  497. Hi Sir,

    Priyanka here, I have an Atal Pension Yojana account opened with Canara Bank, Dhanori, Pune. When i told the bank official to close the APY account he told me what is written on the site and internet is fake and that they do not have any option in closing the APY account.
    Please can you help me with the procedure of how to close mu account.

    Also after seeing so many comments, i had a question if this scheme is really authentic and if we will actually get pension after age of 60?

    Please can you also tell a way of how we can see our APY balance.

    Thanks in advance.

    • initially it was not possible to close APY account but now you can. You have to complain in RBI against this. Scheme is government sponsored and authentic.

  498. Dr. Raja manikandan

    i have enrolled in APY THROUGH SBI. till now monthly money is debited from my account with intimation. but till now i dont have a authentication letter of certificate to show , even i dont know my APY account no fully, i know through bank sms( e.g.xxxxxx1234). if i enquire in bank they say they are not at responsible and they say say that i will receive the enrollment certificate through registered post. i joined since 5 months. till now nothing i got for my authentication. worried about where my money is going. system should be foolproof. plz help me by stating what i should do next.

  499. i am 25, unmarried..
    so can i update my spouse name later on? and can i change my nominee name later on?

  500. I would like to apply for APY. Please clarify the following doubts:

    1. I am unemployed since last 4 years and not an Income tax payer too. My PF contribution for the years I worked has been withdrawn so I am not enrolled under social security scheme as of now. Will I be eligible for government contribution?
    2. Your article mentions government contribution was for enrolments prior to 31st March 2016. If I enrol now will I get government contribution?
    3. After 60 yrs if I die, since I am single, can my parent or sibling be eligible for pension. Or does the pension by default go to spouse only.
    4. Let’s assume I get married can I add spouse name later? Let’s assume I die at 62 yrs and my spouse two years after me, in that case will the nominee get the corpus amount of rs 8.5 lakhs. Or is there a pro rata calculation for corpus?
    5. When you say “The Pension that you will get after completion of term would be taxable” @ what rate is it taxed? Is the corpus taxable too?
    6. If I become an Income Tax payer/ get enrolled under EPF in future will I get government contribution?
    7. Whats the ROI applicable on the amount remitted to nominee in case of death before 60yrs?

  501. Sir ,
    I have two Question in my mind ,
    1. If i am contributing in APY and after two or three year , I got a government job and I will pay income tax than after 60 year I can take pension or not way?
    2. After few year I can change my soppose name or not , And how can i check My contribution amount
