This decision is made to support the social security benefits of state government to offer equal treatment at parity with the central government employees. The tax benefit is limited to 10% for private-sector employees. Announcing tax-related modifications, Sitharaman added, “to give an opportunity to correct an error, now taxpayers can file an updated return within two years from the relevant taxation year”. 

The highlights of the Union budget 2022 are: 

  • Tax deduction increased from 10% to 14% on NPS accounts 

  • Presently, only the central govt. employees are entitled to claim a tax-saving benefit of 14 percent to the NPS account of an employee for the employer’s contribution

  • The corporate surcharge will be decreased from 12% to 7% 

Union Budget 2022 has proposed to bring uniformity in the tax deduction limit on contribution to NPS, between central and state government employees.
