  • Contribution to New Pension System (NPS) by employer (in the case of government employee it is 10% of pay in pay band and grade pay) is to be included in the income like we did in the previous years. However, in order to encourage investments in NPS, this amount has been exempted from payment of any Income tax. In other words, while the entire Contribution to NPS to the employee has to be included in the income of employee, the same to the extent of 10% of salary can be deducted from the income. Hence, in the case of a Government Employee, 100% of Government Contribution to NPS is exempted. This tool has taken care of this aspect.
