Dear Vishwanath,

I don't know details of the above scheme. But as per section 27of the EPF & MP Act 1952, exemption from the operation of the scheme/s framed under the Act to an establishment , to a class of employees and to an individual employee, as the case may be granted; if the said employees are covered with equal or better benefits.
