I went through the post which you have mentioned and it seems he switched just before the financial year. So while filing ITR be will be liable to pay the remaining tax, so do not worry about tax since that is not in our control IMO


Buy house at a different location, opt for corporate NPS and utilise corporate car lease policy


The lease amount gets deducted from your gross salary so that helps for tax deduction and corporate interest rates are usually lower than market rates


New regime will give will you less tax, and no need for.above investments

In other words, would a man be uninterested in a woman who’s living with her ex (but of course being appropriate after the breakup)?

Hi guys 👋🏻
This is regarding the interest amount of our EPF.

For you guys,is the interest details showing any amount in the EPFO member passbook? Or is it showing '0' like me(As seen in the photo below)?

Is the government yet to credit the interest amounts of our PF balances? Or is something wrong with my PF account only?

Any inputs will be really appreciated 🙂
