1. if an organisation has 10 or more employees it has to be registered with EPFO

2. p.f is calculated as 12% of basic + da upto limit of 6500/- only and any employee can volunatary contribute additional 18% of his basic + da but the employer is not liable to make cont over the statutory limit of 12%

Dear Mr. Malik,

We need to get registered with PF voluntarily. Can you please let me know the Rule/Section under which it is mentioned that at the time registration it is required to made members only those who are drawing BASIC+DA less than Rs. 6500/-. If any one who is drawing more than Rs. 6500/- can be a member voluntarily ?

Your immediate reply is highly appreciated.
