during joining of an org, an employee basic salary is Rs.6500 per month then it is mgt decision to give PF or not but this is at the time of joining only, an employer cannot say no to give pf, who has got increment above 6500 basic salary on continuation of service.
pl correct me if i am wrong

First, it is a statutory compliance to deduct PF if the employee of an organisation whose strength is 20 or more, is getting 6500/- or less per month(Basic + DA only). Noone can opt any decision contrary to that.
Secondly, If an employee is already covered under PF then it does not matter what his salary is this time.
The case will remain same if he comes from another companies where he was covered ,to a company where PF Applies whether he crosses the limit of 6500/- per month.
Last, If a new employee joins who was not covered before(may be a fresher or whoever) & his Basic + DA is more than 6500/- per month then it is the employer who may decide whether to include him in PF or not.

Employer have to deduct 12% of the basic + D.A. for th PF contribution if more than 20 employees are working in the organisation but if the employee does not want to take this benefit then he will have to fill form-11 and submit to RPFC
