Subscribers can file National Pension System (NPS) related concerns and complaints with the NPS authorities in different forms. The NPS has a conveniently available, fast and effective redressal system for grievances. Online directly to the Central Grievance Management System (CGMS), or via the NPS CRA help desk, a grievance can be filed. As a written complaint, it can also be physically addressed.
Via Online: An online complaint can be registered with the CGMS by the subscriber. If available, PRAN details have to be filled in. If not, it is important to specify POP registration specifics. It is possible to fill up the form with grievance specifics and submit relevant documents. A token number is displayed on the device screen once the grievance is lodged successfully. For reference purposes and tracking of the complaint, this number must be kept handy.
Via Calling: A query can also be registered by calling a toll-free number at the CRA call centre. By providing the T-pin allocated at the time of opening the NPS account, the subscriber must validate his or her identity. A token number is given for future reference following effective filing of the grievance.
Via physically: Written grievances can be provided to the POP-SP. After a successful submission POP-SP will forward the grievance to CRA CGMS. On successful registration, a token number will be generated and forwarded to the POP-SP. The individual can receive the token number from the POP-SP respectively.
