  8. PPF= : 44000
    Add : employer's contribution to CPF/NPS = 36000/-

    total saving = 90,000

    what will be my tax liability

  9. need small clarification in jan 2012 i have retired my air force on voluntary scheme and i got my gratuity and commutation in the month of august and my pension started in the month of august.
    reemployed in wipro and coming under 30% slab suggest me i need to declare the pension as well lumpsum in this year or not.67405 any exemption for Ex-serviemen.
    mob: 9686567405

  10. But what is the use? A tax payer has not gained from this form of taxation. If the deduction is allowed, they why it should be included under the head salary? It makes no difference to the taxable income. I will be happy if you can clarify on this point

  11. The CIRCULAR NO. 9/2008, DATED 29-9-2008 says "Any contribution made, in excess of 10 per cent, by the Central Government or any other employer to the account of the employee under the New Pension Scheme as notified vide Notification No. F.N. 5/7/2003-ECB&PR, dated 22-12-2003 (enclosed as Annexure-VA) and referred to in section 80CCD [para 5.4(C) of this Circular] shall also be included in the salary income."

    Shall we take the excess of 10% into account or the entire 10% in to account? The Perquisites also does not include the contribution by the employer to NPS. It says any contribution "By an employer (including a company) to an employee, who is not covered by (i) or (ii) above and whose income under the head ‘Salaries’ (whether due from or paid or allowed by one or more employers), exclusive of the value of all benefits and amenities not provided by way of monetary payment, exceeds Rs. 50,000."
    Does NPS, then fall under value of benefits and amenities as said in the circular.
    Please clarify me on this issue

    1. you should refer latest circular 8/2013

      According to which full contribution by employer is to be added in salary income not amount in excess of 10 %
