Very bad decision to tax on EPF interest.Please roll back tax on EPF interest. No one should force our hard earned money. PF we already paid our all taxes. If Govt is want more tax then should focus on increasing tax payer base not increase in tax to limited 3% of people.

lot of speculations on recent announcement on EPF withdrawal policy. I am small employee I have some savings in my EPF account till date. if I leave the job and startup own business, which don't fall into PF norms I should get multiple options like ... let me withdraw full, let me transfer full or partial balance to PPF account newly created. currently there is cap on deposits to PPF account. lock in period for PPF or EPF should be 3-5 years max

why there is need to touch hard earned EPF. this is not something govt give.this is our saving. we have complete right on how to spend it.  you have no moral right to tax us on how we spend this.

T%he recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, and acceptance, with or without changes, by the Government can come soon. It is hoped that all the Central Government employees will stand to benefit by a certain amount. One thought that, keeping this in mind the Personal Income Tax exemption may be increased. Otherwise, whatever benefit an employee gets will be offset with more employees falling in the tax-net. I am sure this is not the intention of the Government. A clarification will help.
