though it was thrown open to the public eight years ago, investors started showing interest in the national pension system (nps) only two years ago. almost 80% of the 4.39 lakh voluntary subscribers joined the scheme only in the past two years. also, 75% of the 5.85 lakh corporate sector investors joined nps in the past four years. clearly, these investors have been attracted to the nps by the tax benefits offered on the scheme. four years ago, it was announced that up to 10% of the basic salary put in the nps on behalf of the individual would be tax free. the benefit under sec 80ccd(2d) led to a jump in the corporate nps registrations. the number of subscribers shot up 83%: from 1.43 lakh in 2012-13 to 2.62 lakh in 2013-14. then two years ago, the government announced an additional tax de...
