What is Atal Pension Yojana?

Atal Pension Yojana (APY) was introduced by the Indian Government through the 2015-16 Union budget. The Atal Pension Scheme focuses on the poor citizens working in the large unorganised sector. To provide the poor working in the unorganised sector with income security during their senile age, APY encourages them to voluntarily save for their retirement and also co-contributes to the scheme.

Features of APY

  • Minimum Monthly Income

The APY guarantees a minimum monthly income as a pension amount between Rs. 1000 and Rs. 5000 to its subscribers upon reaching the age of 60.

  • Government as a Co-contributor

Besides the voluntary APY contribution of the subscriber, the Government shall co-contribute the lower value between 50 percent of the subscriber’s contribution and Rs. 1000 per annum.

  • Inapplicability for Beneficiaries of other Social Security Schemes

If the subscriber is an income taxpayer or is a beneficiary of any other Statutory Social Security Schemes such as Employees Provident Fund(EPF), the Government’s co-contribution shall not apply for APY subscribers.

  • Duration of Co-contribution for APY

The Government’s co-contribution to each eligible subscriber who joined the Atal Pension Scheme between 1 June 2015 and 31 December 2015, shall be applicable for five years.

  • Migration from Swavalamban Scheme

The benefit of the Government’s co-contribution under APY would not exceed five years for all subscribers including those who migrated from the Swavalamban scheme.

Atal Pension Yojana Benefits

  • Early Subscription Benefit:

Subscribers who enroll for the Atal Pension Scheme at an early age shall pay a lesser monthly subscription than those who join at a later age.

  • Mode and Frequency of Contribution:

Contributions to APY can be made on a monthly/quarterly/half-yearly basis via the auto-debit provision from the subscriber’s savings bank account or post office savings account.

  • Returns on APY Contribution:

If the actual returns on a subscriber’s APY contribution are higher than the minimum guaranteed pension fixed by the Government, the balance amount is credited into the subscriber’s account

  • APY Corpus in the event of the death of a Subscriber:

In the event of an APY subscriber’s death, the pension amount shall be received by the subscriber’s spouse, and in the event of both the subscriber and the spouse’s death, the entire corpus amount shall be handed over to a nominee as designated by the subscriber.

  • APY Corpus in the event of a subscriber’s premature death:

In case of an APY subscriber’s premature death, the spouse may choose to continue to contribute to the APY for the remaining period.

  • Tax Benefits:

The subscriber’s annual contribution under Atal Pension Scheme is eligible for the same income tax treatment as under the National Pension Scheme.

An amount of upto Rs. 1,50,000 contributed annually by the subscriber to the Atal Pension Yojana is eligible for tax deduction under Section 80CCD(1) of the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961, provided the total amount of deductions under Sections 80C, 80CCC, and 80CCD does not exceed Rs. 1,50,000.
