Fill them up and attach your Identity Proof,  Address  Proof and Birth Proof. These Banks are Points of Presence  (POPs). POPs  are the first points of interaction of the NPS subscriber  with the NPS  architecture. The authorized branches of a POP, called  Point of  Presence Service Providers (POP-SPs), will act as collection  points and  extend a number of customer services to NPS subscribers.
You will be allotted a unique Permanent Retirement Account Number (PRAN) once your NPS account is active. You will receive your PRAN card  having  a 12 digit unique number. This unique account number will remain  the  same for the rest of your life. You will be able to use this  account and  this unique PRAN from any location in India.
