Hi,

The PF contribution is 12% of Basic salary from both employee and employer. For the calculation the maximum limit of Basic is Rs 6500/-. It means even if the employee's basic salary is above Rs 6500/- the employer is liable to contribute only on Rs 6500/-, that is Rs 780.
However if an employee so desires he may voluntarily contribute more than 12%. Apart from it an employer also has to pay some administration charges. I explain you the various accounts of PF challan.

A/c No 1: PF contribution Account
A/c No 2: PF Admin account
A/c No 10: EPS account
A/c No 21: EDLIS account
A/c No 22: EDLIS admin account

PF admin charge = Employer has to pay 1.1 % of basic
EDLIS: Employer has to pay 0.5% of basic
EDLIS admin charge:Employer has to pay 0.01% of basic

Total additional percentage employer has to pay: 1.61% of basic

So employer has actually to pay 13.61 % of Basic and employee has to pay only 12% of basic.

Employees complete 12% goes to PF account to with draw, while employer contributions' 8.33% goes to Pension fund and 3.67% goes to PF fund.

Hope that helps!

Hai, PF Annual interest may vary from year to year and that will be decided by the Central Government. This year i.e., for 2009 - 2010 the interest rate will be 8.5%. P. Karunakaran
