Indian Budget 2016-17 proposals for Pensioners


Pension schemes offer financial protection to senior citizens. I believe that the tax treatment should be uniform for defined benefit and

defined contribution pension plans. I propose to make withdrawal up to 40% of the corpus at the time of retirement tax exempt in the case of National

Pension Scheme.


In case of superannuation funds and recognized provident funds, including EPF, the same norm of 40% of corpus to be tax free will apply in

respect of corpus created out of contributions made after 1.4.2016.


Further, the annuity fund which goes to the legal heir after the death of pensioner will not be taxable in all three cases. Also, we are proposing a

monetary limit for contribution of employer in recognized Provident and Superannuation Fund of `1.5 lakh per annum for taking tax benefit.


Budget 2016-17 proposes to exempt from service tax the Annuity services provided by the National Pension System (NPS) and Services provided by EPFO to



Budget 2016-17 proposes to reduce service tax on Single premium Annuity (Insurance) Policies from 3.5% to 1.4% of the premium paid in certain cases.
