A. Account opening charge of Rs. 50 (only required for the first year)
B. Annual maintenance charge of Rs. 350
C. 4 transactions, Rs. 10 fees to CRA for each. Total Rs. 40.
D. Registration with PoP (Point of Presence, kind of the investor’s broker): Rs. 40. This will be required not just the first time, but everytime the PoP is changed for some reason (e.g. migration from one location to another)
D. 4 transactions, Rs. 20 fees to PoP for each. Total Rs. 80.
Other charges are negligible; but these charges total to Rs. 560. This is 9.33 percentage of the investment for the year (Rs. 6000). Consider it kind of an entry load for NPS.
