The hashtag #RollBackEPF was trending today on Twitter as the outraged salaried class took to social media to voice its ire against the Budget proposal to tax employee provident fund (EPF) withdrawal.

Under the Budget proposal, interest accrued on 60 percent of contribution to EPF will be taxed at the time of withdrawal. Investments in public provident fund (PPF) however will not be taxed.

Here are some interesting comments on Twitter.
