Centre introduces provision of taxation on NPS in Income Tax Act


Centre introduces provision of taxation on NPS in Income Tax Act

Tax on NPS

The provision that the withdrawal from National Pension Scheme is taxed to the extent of 60 per cent has been introduced into the Income Tax Act, 1961 (Act) vide Finance Act, 2016 by inserting clause (12A) in Section 10 of the Act.

Prior to Finance Act, 2016, National Pension Scheme (NPS), referred to in section 80CCD, was under Exempt, Exempt and Tax (EET) regime i.e., the monthly/periodic contributions during the pension accumulation phase were allowed as deduction from income for tax purposes; the returns generated on these contributions during the accumulation phase were also exempt from tax but the terminal benefits on exit or superannuation, in the form of lump sum withdrawals, were taxable in the hands of the individual subscribed or his nominee in the year of receipt of such amounts unlike PPF and EPF which have been enjoying EEE regime i.e. Exempt, Exempt, Exempt.

In order to rationalize the taxability of receipts from pension plans, vide Finance Act, 2016, section 10 of the Act was amended to provide that any payment from National Pension Scheme to an employee on account of closure or his opting out of the NPS shall also be exempt from tax, to the extent it does not exceed forty percent of the total amount payable to him at the time of closure or his opting out of the scheme. Further, Finance Act, 2017 has amended section 10 of the Income-tax Act to exempt partial withdrawals by employees (to the extent of 25% of the employee’s contribution) from their NPS accounts in accordance with the guidelines prescribed under Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority Act, 2013.

This was stated by Shri Santosh Kumar Gangwar, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.

7th Pay Commission: After higher allowances and pensions, NJCA to negotiate minimum salary of Central Govt employees


7th Pay Commission: After higher allowances and pensions, NJCA to negotiate minimum salary of Central Govt employees

The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), which is leading the negotiation over 7th Pay Commission on behalf of Central Government employees, has not boycotted the issue of minimum salaries. Speaking to India.com, NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra reiterated that the issue would be raised by National Council (staff side) after the anomalies related to allowances and pensions get settled.

“Minimum salary is an important issue. We will surely negotiate it with the Government. Once the matter pertaining to allowances and pensions gets settled, the NJCA will raise it,” Shiv Gopal Mishra said.

As per the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission, the minimum salaries of Central Government employees was hiked from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000. The fitment factor used by Justice AK Mathur-led 7th pay panel was 2.57. The NJCA has demanded the Government to upgrade the fitment factor to at least 3.68, in order to revise the minimum salaries to Rs 26,000.

The Confederation of Central Government employees has also demanded the Government to raise the minimum salaries to Rs 26,000, along with the regularisation of contractual employees.

The issue of minimum salary was one of the key agenda laid before NJCA before the Government in July 2016, when they had threatened a mass strike. Nearly 33 lakh Central Government employees were expected to participate in the indefinite strike which was scheduled to begin from July 11. However, after receiving assurance from Centre, the NJCA was compelled to retract their mass agitation.

No indication has been given from the Government so far regarding the upgradation of minimum salary using a fitment factor of 3.68. According to experts, Centre could adopt a middle road by using a fitment factor of anything between 2.86 to 3.15. The minimum salary, thereby, could be increased between Rs 19,000 to 22,020. However, no official confirmation regarding the same has been received.

The utmost target for NJCA, before the hike in minimum salary, is the implementation of higher allowances. Due to anomalies raised by unions in July, only the basic component of salary was raised for Central Government employees. The hike in allowances was awaited as Centre formed a committee under Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to review the demands raised by unions.

It does not have any income slab as criterion for deciding admissions.
