I would like to know what would be the employer contribution towards PF if the basic of an employee is Rs.10000/-. Is it 12% of 10000/-???
I heard that the organisation is liable to contribute towards PF only a maximum of 12% of Rs.7500/-??
I also want to know if the emplyee does not wish to contribute for PF whose basic is more than Rs.7500/-, is it mandatory by the employer to contribute towards PF for the particular employee?
Kindly clarify.
From India, New Delhi
Regarding PF, if the employee basic wages exceeding Rs.6500/-, there is
no liability on the part of employer to pay PF contribution.
If employee joined with less than above basic, continuing service with
more than the basic of Rs.6500/- , employer bound to pay PF contribution
on the Rs.6500/- only (.i.e.Rs.780/-),eventhough his basic salary more
than that.
Hope get clarification on the same.

Hi Prathima, ceiling was 3500/- upto 01.10.94, then revised to 5000/-. Then it revaised to 6500/- from 01.04.1995. and remains same, further there is no amendment. Satish

and IF employee want to contribute 12% on whole 10,000 then employer has to contribute 12% on whole 10,000

As the Law goes, PF has to be deducted @ 12% on Basic+DA subject to a maximum Basic & DA of 6500 if they are submitting the amount with RPFC. But if a company manages its PF through a trust then it can contribute towards PF at the actual Basic+DA, i.e even if it is more than 6500.

As per the PF act employer has to contribute 12% as well as employee has to contribute 12% of his (Basic+DA) towards PF. I want to know from that 12% there is a break up of 8.33 % and 3.67%. Towards what does the 8.33 % and 3.67 % go to?

HI Prathima reddy & Saravana
As per the rules If the employees basic is more than 6500 then
Employee contribution can be limited to 6500 or for the full
basic amount.
Employer contribution is limited to basic of 6500 that is
contribution amount is 780/- or even the employer can
contribute even for full basic amount as per ur question for
full 10000 that is 1200/-. This practice is in some companies.
The both contribution includes to your CTC.
If employee is not contributing his share then no need of
employer contribution.

The statutory rate of contribution is 12% on the salary limit of Rs.6500/-pm.
If the establishment ready to contribute over and above the salary limit, it can do so, that it can contribute 12% on total salary of Rs.10000 or any.
If the employee wants to contribute over and above 12%, he can contribute so and the company can restrict its contibution to 12% on Rs.6500
option 3
if the salary of an employee (new employee, not existing pf covered employee who have increased wages) is more than 6500, he need not be a member of PF, if he wants and a letter has to be given by him to the management for not to deduct pf from his salary as he is drawing more than 6500.

Dear Yogitha,
PF act only says about the ceiling limit of salary for pf deduction.
You can also refer the website:EPFO for clarification

Dear Adithisangam,
The entire amount of employee contribution towards pf will be remitted in Account No.1
The employer contribution of 8.33% of the PF wages is to be remitted in Account NO.10 as is termed as Family Pension Scheme amount (FPS).
The balance 3.67%(that is the balance amount (12%amount less 8.33%amount(FPS)) is to be remitted in account number 1 along with employees' share, under employers share column.
The whole employee contribution and 3.67% of employer contribution will be paid back to the employee with interest at the time of his withdrawal or superannuation or death.
The amount contributed to FPS fund will be returned to the employee by the way of Pension on his completion of 58th year.
It is your duty to explain the left employees to get the pf accumulations transfered instead of withdrawal, then only the PENSION SCHEME WILL fullfilled its goal.
