    hi sir
    I have changed department PSPCL to DC office. and my pran number has issued of pspcl. NOw i want to change pran to DC office. What is the solution ??????????

    1. Mohammad Ali says

      Hello Sunny, As PRAN is unique and portable across employment and location, NPS contributions can be transferred by the prospective employer to same PRAN already allotted by previous employers after completion of Inter-Sector Shifting, if required.
      For e.g. If a subscriber has been transferred from State Govt to Central Govt or vice versa, he/she can continue using the same PRAN irrespective of change in office, location or department.
