Harsh Kumar Mehta said : Sir, thanks you for pointing out me the provisions of section 1(6) of the Payment of Wages Act, 1936. The said provisions escaped my attention while recording my remarks in said thread. With regards; Harsh Kumar Mehta
Harsh Kumar Mehta said : Dear Madhu ji, in following thread, in the discussion of which I have also participated, one of the leading expert has mentioned that the employed persons getting wages more than Rs.18000/- per month are not covered under the Payment of Wages Act, 1936. The online link of the thread is as follows:-
Sir, I could not trace out the section or rule under above Act vide which the "employed persons" getting wages more than Rs. 18000/- per month are excluded from the protection of said Act. I hope, your goodself will like to see the matter and advise me accordingly so that I may be able to up-date myself. With regards. Harsh Kumar Mehta.
This is UDAY working in HR dept and my query is that, One of my employee is asking me that he doesn't want to take PF enrollment at the time of his date of joining...
What are the ways to exempt that particular employee from PF.
1. I came to know that if employee is not having PF account in his previous organization we can also exempt him from PF..
2. If we submit FORM 11 can we exempt that employee from PF.
3. If any employee BASIC +DA is above 15000 is there any option for excluding that employee from PF
The question raised by the initiator of the thread is whether it is mandatory for the employers (of small units covered under Shop & Commercial Estt Act) to provide for medical facilities or medical insurance to its employees ?
Though, I have replied, yet I am doubtful about the exact position. I will be thankful, if you may express your views on the subject, so that I may be able to update myself. With regards;
Harsh Kumar Mehta
Harsh Kumar Mehta said : Respected Sh. Madhu.T.K. ji, this is since long I have earlier contacted you through e-mail. Though, I am continuing my contribution in citeHR as per my experience and ability, but I find your notes/views very important. I may, however, want to submit that in one of thread titled:
you have mentioned the amount of Medical Bonus under the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 as Rs. 5000/- . The Medical Bonus under said Act was Rs.3500/- and I am not sure since when the same has been enhanced to Rs.5000/-. Hope your goodself will see the issue and if possible intimate me the date since when it has been enhanced to Rs.5000/- so that I may try to trace out and see the Gazette.
However, the said amount of Medical Bonus under ESI Act (which is called as "Confinement Expenses") is Rs.5000/- w.e.f. 1/10/2013. With kind regards, sir. Harsh Kumar Mehta.

I am a member of EPF since 2000 August. I was not entitled for Pension Fund so the contribution of Employer was added to that of mine.
I was contributing more than 12% (say 72%) of my basic. Employer as required was on 12%.
Year End March 2015, I calculate on my EPF pass book that the Interest as on date is only 8.25%.
My question is
1) What is the method PF adopts to calculate Interest
2) How can I get my figures checked & corrected in Department.
