NPS subscriber registration

Due to the bifurcation of Ladakh from Jammu and Kashmir and merging of Union Territories Daman & Diu and Dadra & Nagar Haveli, a new code in the CRA system has been created to map the existing PRANs and offices to Ladakh Union Territory.

Changes in contribution have been made to allow governments of both UTs to make a contribution in PRANs of the subscribers.
