Firstly it becomes necessary to check if there is any agreement in between India and the country from where the employee is coming, and whether there are any terms decided by the countries to employ each other's citizens.
Recently the central govt has passed one resolution regarding payment of PF Contribution with regard to foreign employees in India. As per that the PF contribution of foreign employees is to be deposited with PF authorities in India but while disbursing the PF amount to such employee after his termination etc. decision is to be taken as per the provisions of the International agreement with his country.
