People who have an age in between 18 to 40 can join into APY, this means the minimum period of involvement of any subscriber under APY would be 20 years more and the government would be guaranteed for minimum pension for all subscribers. All the bank account holders who have required eligibility can join into APY with auto debit facility to accounts, leading to reduction in contribution collection charges.
To each any every subscriber account, the government would co-contribute the 50 percent of the total contribution or Rs. 1,000 per annum till 5 years i.e. from 2015-16 to 2019-20.
