As per the scheme, it is mandatory for persons entering service on or after January 1, 2004, to contribute 10 percent of salary every month towards notified pension account. A matching contribution is required to be made by the employer to said account. The tex treatment under the new scheme is as follow --

Any Pension Received during the service is always taxable under the head salaries

As per section 10(10A). It is fully taxable as salary 



it is taxable in head of salary



Is any employee of private statue is being receiving pension from his contibuted money taxable under the head salary? if yes what would be the name of employer shown at the time of filling of return of income. Is it taxable under head income from other sources.
