Can a company match my NPS contribution?

The employer's contribution to NPS qualifies for a tax deduction under Section 80CCD(2)

Many companies match their employees' contribution to National Pension Scheme (NPS). The employee can claim a tax deduction on his contributions under Section 80CCD(1). The employer's contribution to NPS qualifies for a tax deduction under Section 80CCD(2). The tax deduction on employer's contribution is over and above the ₹1.5-lakh deduction permitted under Section 80C.
