The NPS has a very long lock-in period. The official exit in NPS is allowed at the age of 60. Hence if one starts investing in NPS say at the age of 30 years, there is a lock-in period of 30 years involved.

NPS does allow early exit from the scheme (with few restrictions) provided a person has been invested in NPS for at least 10 years.
