Hi Jyoti,

Regarding PF Contribution -Employer should pay 12% of Basic salary, in which 8.33% will goes to Pension Scheme balance 3.67 will goes to PF & 1.61 is admin charges i.e total employers contri is 13.61%.

While calculating the Pension Scheme employer should pay 8.33% of basic (limit is upto Rs.6500/ ie Rs.541/-) not more than that rest will goes to PF.

say for eg. if the employees is getting Basic salary of Rs.8000/- Rs.541/-(8.33%) will goes to pension scheme and Rs.419/- will goes to PF, however employer has to contribute 12% of basic, whatever be the amount.

Regarding Employee Contirbution of 12% from basic is unavoidable as per the PF act.


1) If the employee's basic increases beyond Rs.6500/- then the employer have to contribute the minimum amount of Rs.780/-. It is mandatory.

2) On hiring if the basic exceeds 6500/- the PF amount of 780/- has to be deducted if he is aleady a member of PF. Else not required.

3) If the employee joins in the consultant mode then PF does not have to be deducted.

Thanks & Regards...

Hi Sudhir and guys,
I work for a pvt company, I was awfully shocked that pyt of ESI was not paid. from 2007 to 2009. for eg: if the person drew a sal of CTC - 15000 how do you calculate damages and interest for ESI from the above period.
Can this excel sheet calculate single person damges and interests.

For Months------5%
For 2-4 months-----10%
For 4-6 Months---------155
For More than ^ months----25%

Dear Sudhir ji,
you mentioned ESI Wages Rs. 22,000/_ and calculated 1.75% & 4.75% on Rs. 22,000/_ but i think more than Rs. 15,000/_ there is no need to deposit either of employee contribution of 1.75% and employer's contribution @4.75%.
Please advise,

Dear Sudhir,
Thank you for your information.
We have contractor wherein only 7 workers are employed by them. The contractor works only for us.
Are they covered under ESI ACT. We have around 70 employees in payroll.

Sir, contractor employees are also employees as per provisions of ESI Act, 1948 and rules/regulations framed thereunder. The said Act do not make any distinction between contract, piece-rated, daily-rated etc. employees and hence compliance is required to be made or to be ensured by the principal employer in respect of said employees.
