Employees Provident Fund Rules when basic+DA crosses Rs.6500

Date: 01 Dec 2012   Group: Government    Category: Central Government   


The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EFPO) makes it compulsory for deduction of EPF from employees @ 12% of Basic+DA if the Basic+DA is Rs.6500 or below per month with an equal contribution from the employer. What is the rule of deduction of the EPF if the employees salary becomes more than Rs.6500 due to increment or revision of his salary while working in the same organisation. Is the deduction @12% compulsory for such an employee. What if the employee refuses contribution since his salary has crossed Rs.6500, what will the contribution of the organisation in such a case. Can someone quote the relevant order or rule of the EFPO in this regard?

Employees drawing a basic of Rs.6500/- have to compulsory contribute to the Provident fund and for the employees receiving above Rs.6501/- have an option to become a member of provident fund.
If the salary of employees salary is increased above Rs.6501/- due to increments, he/she should still contribute for PF at least to the upper limit for contribution of Rs.6500/-

For example if your salary is increased to Rs.7500/-
Your EPF may be calculated in 3 ways:
1. EPF(employees share)- 7500 X 12%
EPF(employers share)- 7500 X 12%-(EPS)

2. EPF(employees share)- 7500 X 12%
EPF(employers share)- 6500 X 3.67%

3. EPF(employees share)- 6500 X 12%
EPF(employers share)- 6500 X 3.67%

Once you had an EPF you can't opt out it. It is possible only in case of the person who is new to job and basic is above Rs.6500.
