Atal pension yojna (APY) is a pension scheme run by the government of India and is operated by the pension fund regulator Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA). For people looking to invest for a fixed pension during their retirement, APY is an attractive option.

Under the Atal pension yojna, the government guarantees a pension of 1000 to 5000 rupees per month after 60 years. A person up to the age of 40 years can apply in this scheme of the government.
