Dear Shilpi,
1. Mandatory to continue the contribution in PF.
2. No. If practice is there for PF contibution irrespective of ceiling, one such employee cannot be descriminated.
3. There may be many cos restricting contibuting PF to salary limit Rs.6500/-

I dont understand what made u say tht option. Once the employee is an existing PF member then u have to pay atleast the minimum amount of 780/- towards PF even if u hire back them with higher basic salary as u suggested.
I can understand that u must be a fresher.

Dear Shilpi,
First of thanks a lot for putting up good post. One point i would like to mention is for any employee for whom you are already contributing more than Rs 780 you can not reduce it back to Rs 780. Apart from this visit to for more details.
Friends i needed more clarification about what Mr.Vishal as mentioned i.e about Form 26(6).

And thanks to all others who have replied to this particular post.

PF deductions over and and Rs.6500/- is the discritionary of the mgt. Once you have taken decision for payment of contributionsover and above Rs.6500, you have to pay PF on the above PF wages and can't stop in the meanwhile. it should uniformly to all the employees. Also in the middle you should not stop/fix a higher limt is also not possible.

if an employee is getting salary 9500/- per month and in the month of june, his salay has been increased up to Rs 12500 in that case ESI should be dedcted but ESI should be deducted on RS 10000/- or Rs 12500/-
From India, Ludhiana
Varinder, ESI should be calculated only for 9500/- not for 10000/- or 12500/- till the end of september.

Hi Shilpi,
Opting in , Fixed option or opting out is merely an employee's decision and not employer's.
Hence, when basic increases beyond Rs.6500/-, it is still an employee who has to decide whether to contribute to PF or not.
There are no establishments that have ruled out PF on account of basic beyond Rs.6500/-.
Thanks and Regards
