Why shud pensioners be taxed??

This petition had 627 supporters

All retired members please initiate a movement - every retired person after rendering 30 to 36 years of service to the Govt or the Deptt where he worked and for all his services the Deptt pay him salary which is ofcourse treated as income and is liable for income tax. But after retirement he is paid pension as a superanuation fund for his livelihood on account of serving for so many years. Here a question arises as to why should Income Tax be levied on pension. This is not an income for any services or work. This is only a deferred wages by the Deptt to the employee who have served the Deptt for so many years. Then why at all Income tax. Raise your voice and let it reach the Govt to discontinue the levy of Income tax on pension
