UTI Mutual Fund to manage Centre's Pravasi Suraksha plan

Mumbai,July 8,2012 DH News Service

Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA) at the Centre has launched a special scheme named Mahatma Gandhi Pravasi Suraksha Yojana (MGPSY) for overseas Indian migrant workers which aims to encourage and assist the overseas Indian migrant workforce to voluntarily save for their return and resettlement and for their old age.

Accordingly, UTI Asset Management Company, on Saturday, said it has entered into an agreement with the MOIA as one of the partners for managing the ‘return and resettlement’(R&R) savings benefit under MGPSY, said an official release.

The contribution amount under R&R scheme of MGPSY will be invested in UTI Monthly Income Scheme Growth Option. MGPSY is a voluntary scheme, under which the Indian migrant worker can contribute upto Rs.4000/- per annum, while MOIA will also co-contribute upto Rs.900/- per year each fiscal towards the resettlement benefit for a maximum period of 5 years.


This in turn will be invested in UTI Monthly Income Scheme-Growth option, which is an Open ended debt oriented scheme with no assured returns, the release said.


The scheme (UTI-MIS) aims at distributing income -- if any periodically -- while it has an asset allocation limit of minimum 85 per cent and maximum 100 per cent in debt and balance in equities/equity related instruments.

Eligibility required for R&R savings schemes is that a migrant worker should possess an ‘Emigration Clearance Required’ (ECR) passport and a valid work permit or employment contract in ECR country and should be aged between 18 and 50 years. Benefits from MOIA will be provided for a maximum period of 5 years or for the period of overseas employment whichever is less.

Withdrawal from R&R Savings is allowed when the overseas Indian worker returns to India or 5 years after joining MGPSY whichever is earlier.
