With effect from April 1, 2004, the National Pension Scheme took the role of the OPS for central government employees. In accordance with the previous pension plan, retired employees were given monthly pensions equal to 50% of their final drew wages. NPS, on the other hand, is a contributing pension plan in which employees make 10% of their pay (Basic + Dearness Allowance) toward their NPS accounts, with the government making the remaining 14%.

Pension fund managers that have received approval from PFRDA oversee the NPS funds. Under NPS, it is the employee's responsibility to purchase the annuity plan from authorised pension providers. Employees must invest at least 40% of their cumulative corpus into an annuity plan for a monthly pension when they retire. The remainder can be taken out in one lump sum by the employee.

The NPS vs. OPS argument has recently become more political. The National Pension Scheme (NPS), which has been in place since 2004, will be replaced by the Old Pension Scheme (OPS), according to a recent announcement by the Punjab government. A number of other states are experimenting with the idea of going back to OPS.

Even though the discussion may remain for a while, here are some of the key distinctions between OPS and NPS, as well as how those funds have fared over the past five and ten years for employees of state and federal governments.
