Tax Rebate on National Pension Scheme

With regards to NPS, currently you can claim the deduction if the amount is debited and remitted by the employer only and not if you are making the contribution on your own. I have three queries: 1. Can I claim the deduction for tier 2 a/c of NPS? 2. Can I claim the deduction if I deposit the money from my a/c to the NPS a/c without the employer being involved? 3. with new provision of additional 50k in this budget, can I claim the deduction if I make the contribution to tier 2 a/c or do I have to make the contribution to tier 1 a/c only?
