Can I claim a tax deduction of Rs 2 lakh?

You can claim a total tax deduction of Rs 2 lakh under Section 80C and 80CCD

I am a government employee. My total NPS contribution this year is around ₹2.4 lakh due to arrears for previous years. Could I claim ₹1.5 lac under 80 C and ₹50,000 under 80CCD(1B) for this contribution?

You can claim a total tax deduction of ₹2 lakh under Section 80C and 80CCD. Since you have contributed ₹2.4 lakh to NPS this financial year, you can claim the entire deduction of ₹2 lakh without making any additional investment.
