The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority is the statutory body that was established to promote, regulate, and ensure a systematic growth of the National Pension Scheme. The regulatory body was established by an enactment of the Parliament and also regulated the pension schemes to which the Act applies.
Initially, the National Pension Scheme was notified for central government employees recruits and was subsequently adopted by almost all state governments for its employees. The pension scheme was later extended to all Indian citizens on a voluntary basis and to the corporate for its employees.
