    EPF Tax Budget 2016: ARGUMENTS IN FAVOUR OF THE TAX - 1. The government says it will bring parity among provident fund, pension funds and the National Pension System (NPS).

    EPF Tax Budget 2016: ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE TAX - 1. The first argument is that while the government is continuing with the EEE tax benefit for equity linked savings schemes by mutual funds and unit linked insurance plans where middle and large income investors invest, it is proposing to remove EEE benefit from EPF, where the majority of contributors are assumed to be in the low income bracket.

    EPF Tax Budget 2016: ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE TAX - 2. EPFO is the only retirement saving for workers in the low income group, and an imposition of tax at the time of withdrawal will rob them of a sizeable portion of their long-term savings.

    EPF Tax Budget 2016: ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE TAX - 3. Some argue that since the contribution to EPF goes from tax-paid income, if the government imposes tax at the time of withdrawal, it will be like taxing them twice on the same income.

    Last time BJP came to power Arun Shourie was selling PSUs to Private Parties. This time Arun Jaitley is selling EPFO savings of service cl to private parties managing annuities. Mr Jaitley is acting as Insurance Agent for Multinational Insurance Companies, he has already increased FDI in Insurance sector to 49%. Mr jayant Sinha is his accomplice in this act. Remember when his father Mr Yashwant Sinha had to roll back a Rs 40 increase in LPG prices and 5% service tax. Mr Modi is also involved as he must have given a go ahead for this idea. Mr Hasmukh Aadhia is merely a servant echoing his Masters voice like a parrot. BJP has proved themselves to be a service cl adverse government both times it has come to power. Please dont vote for BJP and please ensure your family and kin ( children, their families and their relatives ) dont vote for this anti service cl / anti middle cl party. Lets all vow for a "BJP MUKT BHARAT" .
