D Remit or Direct Remittance empowers NPS Subscribers to contribute directly from the Subscribers' Savings Bank Account. It also benefits them with the benefit of the same day investment provided the contributions are received at Trustee Bank before 9.30 AM on any bank working day other than Saturdays/Holidays. D Remit also enables the Subscribers to automate their recurring contributions as per their convenience by way of Standing Instruction so as to reap the benefit of rupee cost averaging.
