Pension Reform in India
The Unfinished Agenda

First Edition
  • H. Sadhak - Non Bank Financial Institutions Regulatory Authority, Botswana


September 2013 | 528 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Changing population dynamics have challenged the socio-economic stability of nations globally. This has brought into focus pension reform as one of the most critical socio-economic-political agendas. Against this background, this book gives a comprehensive account of the Indian pension system and the ongoing reforms.

Pension Reform in India discusses the current National Pension System (NPS) structure and architecture extensively and also throws light on the alternative old-age financial-security schemes available in the country. To enable a better understanding of the critical issues of the hour, the author provides insights into pension reforms in many emerging-economy countries. 

Drawing upon his years of experience in this field and also from exhaustive research of data and publications of international agencies and eminent scholars, the author proposes methods for designing a pension system that is both viable and robust.
