The proposal of long-term capital gains (LTCG) tax will not have much impact on the National Pension Scheme (NPS), a top Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) official has said.
“It will not have much impact on us. The investments in the National Pension System are made by our trust (NPS Trust) which is a tax-exempted body. As far as pension investments are concerned, LTCG will not have an impact,” PFRDA chairman Hemant Contractor said here on Tuesday.
However, it will have an impact on tier II accounts also known as non-pension account, he said on the sidelines of a conference on the NPS in association with Stock Holding Corp.
