Corporate NPS is a great tool to save tax and systematically invest towards your retirement kitty!

Some companies offer you to have a part of your basic salary invested towards NPS. This is called Corporate NPS.
The contribution goes towards the same NPS kitty where you make your voluntary contributions but the tax benefit is additional.
The good part is that this tax deduction is available under the new tax regime as well.

So if your company offers this benefit, do consider opting for it.
