He was responding when TMC members raised the issue soon after the question House with Saugata Roy demanding that Jaitley, who was in the House, make an immediate announcement.

TMC leader Sudip Bandhyopadhyaya said the Budget proposal to tax the EPF has caused nation-wide concern.

Jaitley had spoken on similar lines earlier in the day at a meeting organised by industry chambers and said he will spell out the final decision on the matter when he speaks during the debate on Budget in Parliament.
