Hi sreenandhini,

Pls find the answers as u required:-

* PF is calculated on (basic+DA)& it is covered by central Government.
* PF is a kind of benefit & savings for the employees & a part of deduction as well.
* basic means the minimum wages & wages varies from state to state & parameters on which wages vary will be according to the cost of living.

*6500 is the limit of PF.

* DA=Dearness Allowance will vary acc to central Govt & state Govt. the changing ratio will be dif. for State & Central Govt.

*Employee Contribution towards PF Ee =12%
Employer Contribution Er = 12% + 1.61% (administration Charges)

*if B+DA = 650 then Ee = 12%, Er = 12%+1.61%
Ee = Rs 780, Er = Rs 780 = 1.61% * 6500 = Rs. 104.65

Calculation
A/C 1 (Employee Provident Fund Account,EPF), Ee = 12%, Er = 3.67%
Ee= Rs780, Er= Rs238.55

A/c 10(Employee Pension Fund) Er= 8.33%
Er= 8.33 *6500/100 = Rs.541.45

1.1%*6500= Rs.71.50

A/c21 (Employee Developed Linked Insurance Charges),0.5%
0.5%*6500= Rs.32.50

A/c22(EDLIC),0.01%
0.01%*6500= Rs 0.65

Total Administration Charges = Addition of all 1.1% + 0.5%+ 0.01% 1.e.
Rs(71.50+ 32.50+ 0.65) = Rs 104.50

I hope now you will be able to understand ur query in a better way.
