NPS - Current Withdrawal, Exit And Taxation Rules Explained
Under NPS, a taxpayer can invest money in pension account, will have the option to take part of the corpus as lump-sum and the remaining in the form of a fixed monthly income. At 60, NPS subscribers are allowed to withdraw 60 per cent of the corpus of which, presently 40 per cent is tax exempt. However, the government has recently proposed to make the entire 60 per cent tax free. The proposed amendment will be effective from the tax year 2019-20. The remaining 40 per cent of the money will have to be invested in monthly pension annuity plan.
The NPS offers two choices to its subscribers:
1) Active Choice: where the investor can decide how to invest the money in different assets
2) Auto choice or lifecycle fund is the default option wherein the money in invested automatically as per the subscriber's age.
Further the NPS offers two accounts: Tier-I and Tier-II. While Tier-I is a mandatory account, Tier-II is voluntary. Also, you aren't authorized to withdraw all the money from Tier-I account till your retirement. However, from the Tier-II account, you can withdraw all the money invested in it.
The government's move to make NPS withdrawal limit tax free can be seen as a positive move to draw more investors into the scheme. Further with tax benefits under various sections of the Income Tax (Act), the investors will surely now look towards enhancing their investment portfolio in the last quarter of the financial year.
