 - 80CCD(2) is applicable to government employee.(Both Central and state government)

- It can be considered while filing the income tax return, if not considered by employer in form 16.

- The contribution should be 10% of basic pay plus dearness allowance or equal to employers contribution but not more.

Section 80CCD (2) pertains to contribution made by employer (Central Government or any other employer) in notified pension scheme. Deduction allowed under this section is restricted to maximum. 

a. 14%, of salary (Basic +DA) where such contribution is made by the Central Government;

b.  10% of salary (Basic +DA)  where such contribution is made by any other employer,

So the deduction of 14% is applicable only to Central Government employees currently. Pls. check with concerned department why the contribution by employer is not reflected in gross salary. Generally, this should be reflected as a part of gross salary. However you can claim 80CCD(2) deduction up to the limits mentioned above in returns.
