either way there is no justification for taxation at the time of withdrawal of accumulations It is one thing to argue for liberalising interest rates on the EPF by making these market-determined or allowing a greater portion of its corpus to be invested in capital markets But that is different from removing tax exemption on withdrawals Both the EPF and NPS are potential sources of long-term capital that the economy needs today to fund infrastructure and other long-gestation projects The government should encourage such savings; it needs to present a more convincing case for not exempting their withdrawals from tax Keystrokes: EPF Tax For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News
