The threshold has been increased from 6500 to 15000.
Thanks to Praveen, Suresh Narula, Ashish, Krishna Chandrashekar and Ramakrishna Sripathy for pointing out mistakes.
The formula used for corpus calculation:
The formula will 'blow up' if the salary increases at exactly 8.5% (the denominator will become zero). A simple workaround for this is to add 0.00001% to the denominator. Thanks to Chenthil Iyer for point out that it is better to assume that investments are made at the end of each year for a conservative estimate.
Thanks to AIFW members who clarified that only the basic salary is used for contributions in the private sector.
