Hi Chirag,
Though including PF contribution in CTC is correct, employers take it in a different way and the EPF organisation has come strongly on this.
This faulty concept was introduced by MNCs and soon it became contagious. As per this, a total of 24% (on Basic +DA) will be deducted. (12% on Ee & Er) every month. Sounds different? Let me explain you clearly.
If the PF calculation is worked out from the annual CTC, then monthly gross will be an odd figure. Apart from 24% deduction towards PF, add up Income Tax, and other deductions. Now what is left? A mere payslip with smiling figures on your hands.

Dear Doctor,
CTC is the term which in itself means Cost To Company.. Here company will definitely add all fixed components which is a cost for you either direct or indirect.
PF, Gratuity, Bonus, Mediclaim, all these benefits are indirect costs which company bears on behalf of you.. So automatically it is a part of your CTC but not a part of your gross salary.
Dear Mr. Chandru, here nothing been done smartly, earlier it was the concept of Gross salary but now the Company have started to show their actual cost which company is paying for you directly or indirectly.

Dear Amith,

CTC includes Er PF also, no doubt about it dear. You are fully right. I stand to say that you are not supposed to deduct 24% from an employee in monthly paystub stating that EmployerPF is already included in CTC. Hope you got it right.

For your kind information, those were the 'smart' words of PF Commissioner -Chennai (Retd.) zone who spoke to me and not framed by me. The EPFO served notice for the said reason to the CEO of a US based MNC in Chennai where I worked earlier. For obvious reasons, I am withholding the name of that MNC. When the first HR manager occupant does a mistake, it travels a long way till rectified.

In a month, you are supposed to deduct only 12%of PF from employee and not 24 %. It has to be one EePF dedcution and Er PF Contribution in a payslip. This is what the EPFO states strongly.

But what happens now is, in the name of CTC, 24% is deducted from an employee every month to justify that CTC also includes ErPF contribution. If 'lunch is provided' then you are supposed to provide 'drinking water' also. The new justification says that water is already included in butter milk and gravy, then why to contribute separately.

Later, we all received a letter from CEO with a copy of PF Commissioner's notice stating that the error had been rectified and the ErPF amount deducted from us will be refunded and credited in our A/c.

I hope the words have conveyed my thoughts.

From India, Pondicherry
Conceptually one has to understand what CTC means. It means to hire a candidate what is the cost involved? Hence it is THE COMPANY,S CONTRIBUTION 12% TO BE TAKEN AS CTC NOT EMPLOYEE'S SHARE.
Hope matter is clear.

Cost to the company is only 'Cost being incurred by the Company' on an employee, directly as well as indirectly. Directly is salary, allowances, medical etc, where as, indirect is PF, Gratuity, pension etc. Based on your basic pay and dearness allowance 12% of the said total have to be paid as contribution by the employer every month to the PF A/c. ( Some one said 24%, which is not correct as, employee contribution is notCTC as, the same is paid by the employee from the basic pay and DA ; which has already been counted for CTC. So double counting is not permitted as per Supreme court decision ( Sorry, I am unable to recollect the case now).
MNCs generally count employer PF contribution as a part of CTC.

Dear All,
CTC includes all the cost which company incurrs for an employee. CTC includes Gross Salary. So we cannot include PF Employees Contribution again because we deduct 12% (of Basic + DA) from Gross Salary. Same in case of ESIC (if applicable).
But surely the employers contribution of 13.61% (of Basc + DA) has to be included.
As Correctly said by gopan........

Dear Friend,
If the total of Basic + DA is more than Rs. 6500/-, then it's the employee's will either to contribute to the PF a/c or not. In case of non contribution, there is no question of employer's contbtn.
Some companies do include both employer's and employee's contribution in CTC though it's not rt. even in the manufacturing co where I was working.
