 Withdrawals Under National Pension Scheme To Be Tax-Free

The Union Cabinet in its Meeting on 6th December, 2018 has approved withdrawals made by subscribers of the National Pension Scheme at the time of retirement “ Tax free”.

Tax exemption limit for lump sum withdrawal on exit has been enhanced to 60%. With this, the entire withdrawal will now be exempt from income tax. (At present, 40% of the total accumulated corpus utilized for purchase of annuity is already tax exempted. Out of 60% of the accumulated corpus withdrawn by the NPS subscriber at the time of retirement, 40% is tax exempt and balance 20% is taxable.)

Besides, the contributions under tier-II of NPS, which is regulated by Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority, will now be eligible for tax exemption up to Rs 1.5 lakh available under 80-C of the Income Tax Act.This will be at par with other schemes such as General Provident Fund, Contributory Provident Fund, Employees Provident Fund and Public Provident Fund, provided there is a lock-in period of three years. Tier-2 accounts are voluntary in nature and function like mutual funds, permitting withdrawal anytime. Investments in tier-2 accounts weren’t earlier allowed tax exemption.
