Why invest more in EPF or PPF

In the financial year 2021-22, the Modi government has targeted those who were investing in EPF or PPF with the intention of saving taxes. According to the rules, 12 per cent of the basic salary is invested in EPF but some people deposit more money in EPF or VPF with the intention of saving tax as it earns good interest and so far there is no tax system. Arrangements have now been made to collect taxes from such people in the new financial year.

No tax on employer's deposit

The new rule, effective April 1, only deals with tax on employee deposits. The employer means that no tax is levied on the interest on the contribution made by the company. Very few people will be affected by this rule as only a company will deposit more contributions in the employee's account than the rule.
