The National Pension Scheme or NPS was implemented on 1st Jan 2004 with the sole intention of giving financial returns to the retired employees. This is a great savings scheme for all the employees who are working right now. When they get retired, they will be able to secure a fix pension each month all their remaining life.

Let’s get into the details of this NPS scheme. There are two types of accounts in this scheme, they are Tier I and Tier II accounts. Tier I is a retirement account from which you cannot withdraw any amount until you retire. Whereas, Tier II account allows you to withdraw your savings money whenever you want. Both have its advantages and disadvantages.
