Is Investing in EPF & PPF same in terms of Tax saving?

POSTED BY Dr.Sachin ON January 16, 2014 1:39 pm COMMENTS (3)

An employee contributing to his ‘ Employees’ Provident Fund’ will also be counted for tax deduction under 80C? Or is this contribution not counted for tax deductions at all? If counted, it comes under which section? Or Section 80C is for PPF only?
