An NRI can fill the NPS account opening form online at the eNPS site. After completing the online form, it has to be downloaded, printed, signed and sent it to the given address.

On completion of the above steps, a PRAN (Permanent Retirement Account Number) gets generated which signals the successful opening of the NPS account.

Alternatively, an NRI can also open the NPS account through banks that are appointed as Point of Presence to provide NPS service. The registration form needs to be downloaded from the bank website and complete the registration process. The form needs to be submitted to CRA through banks. CRA would allot the PRAN on completion of verification of subscriber.
