The new amendment to the PF & FPF Act madates payment of PF & FPF contribution for foreign Nationals working in India. My question is whether PF & FPF had to be paid for Foreign Nationals who are Directors of the company and draw remuneration in India. If the same foreign national is a director in more than one Indian company and draws remuneration from all the comapnies, should all the companies in which he is a director, deduct & pay PF & FPF for that person.
Yes, all companies which pay remuneration should contribute towards EPF and EPS. Regards, Madhu.T.K
Yes, any foreigner working in india could be member of PF /EPF as per law, the law has been ammended in last year, but subject to treaty with the coyntry REgards Arun
If a person is working as a (Indian) director in more than one organisation. what's about his contibution in PF & FPF. Is it true that his contibition for FPF diducted from any one organisation only?

DEAR ALL,
IF THERE ARE TWO DIRECTORS FOR COMPANY. ONE IS INDIAN OTHER ONE IS FOREIGNER (CAN WE CALL HIM AS IW ie. INTERNATIONAL WORKER FOR EPF MATTER?), THEN MY QUESTION IS, WHETHER WE HAVE TO COMPULSORY DEDUCT EPF CONTRIBUTION FOR FOREIGNER DIRECTOR (AS INDIAN DIRECTORS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO CONSIDER FOR EPF CONTRIBUTION)?
IF YES, THEN WHAT SHOULD BE THE PF CONTRIBUTION WAGE CEILING LIMIT? AND WHAT ABOUT FOREIGNERS PAN AND ADDRESS?
IS THERE ANY OTHER THING RELATED TO THIS TOPIC?
THANKS IN ADVANCE

It is okay for an Indian Director because an Indian getting salary of more than Rs 15000 from the beginning can be excluded from PF contribution but for a foreign national this salary ceiling is not applicable. However, there is a technical problem associated with his enrollment. You cannot generate UAN without adhar. Though a foreign national who is in India for at least 182 days can take adhar, the rules of EPF says that one should be enrolled from the day one onwards. Therefore, you have to get this technical issue clarified and proceed.
