Dear Bala
12% is employee share towards EPF and 12% is employer share out of which 8.33% goes to pension and rest is provident u can pay max 12% as VPF max .and min is as per your choice ,employer will only pay vpf and epf can be upto 24%.

Hi Bala,
Voluntary PF is over & above the statutory PF of 12%. There is no limit for VPF. An employee can contribute as much as he/she may wish, earlier there was a cap on this. Employee is not required to pay any contribution towards VPF.
Hope this helps.

i would tel u in a ly mans terms.....the employers contri and the employee is of a max of 12%...but if u want to save more then u can increase the contribution from ur side to whtever extent but the employeers contribution will remain the same that is 12%(fluctuations can b there with regard to company policy)

wow...thats really an useful info...I got it clearly..I thought VPF is something an entirely different scheme from normal PF,but after ur reply,i understood,it s just an additional benefit,which is contributed from the employees side to get more benefits in the i correct...thank u :icon1:

Dear Balaji,
Volu Contribution Depends On Employee He Can Contribute Upto 100% But U Need To Take Permision From E.p.f.o & As For As Employer Is Concern Max. Contribution Is 12%. But If Employer Is Willing To Pay More Towards E.p.f. He (employer) Can Pay.

Dear All,
In my views;
The Maximum contribution towards PF indluding VPF is 20%. Employer's contribution will restricted upto 12% only. The approval is needed from RPFC office.
Employee is entitled for interest on such accumulation.Employer's service charge will increase to some extent(.01%)
Hope this is the latest status.

I am 100% agree with you guys, but basic condition is that total deduction including PF,ESI,Gratuity,VPF, etc. should not cross the 50% of the total amount which you have going to pay.
