Dear Vinay Kumar,
There is no claim for the employee to enroll to PF in the present job. At the same time if employer and employee wish, contribution to Pf may be paid either on a salary of Rs. 6500 or on actual salary.

Although this is the rule that once a member will always be member for PF scheme. but as in your example you stated he changed the organisation and his salary is more than Rs 7000/-, if he has settle his account with PF department and withdrawn his PF amount then you can put him in catagory of exempted employees. in that case you need to get signed Form 11 from him.

Whether the employee has settled / withdrawn previous PF or not, the new employer has no obligation to enroll him to PF in the next service as his salary is above Rs. 6500. Abbas.P.S

Dear this is the obligation of the employer to enroll a new employee even if he is getting more than Rs 6500/- if he is already a member of the fund. Please go through para 26 to 28 of PF scheme.

Ceiling limit of salary to deduct th p.f is of rs. 6500 ( only basis salary ) whethe any one earning more than above limit. Pf will be deduct at 6500.

As stated Wage/salary ceiling limit for PF is Rs.6500/- and it is statutory compliance to deduct 12% on Basic+Da+ retaining allowance if any from employee pay and equal share of amount has bt be added to total contribution (24%) in the intial service of the employee. The following points are answer for your arising questions.
1) It is not obligatory on the part of employer to cover employees whos wages/salary is above ceiling limit of Rs.6500/-.
2)If Management agreed to cover:- a) Management may restrict to 12% contribution on Rs.6500/- b) May contribution over and above Rs.6500/-also.
3) If employee salary exceeds ceiling limit for covered employee, he/she will enjoy the benefit till retirement/date of leaving subjected to point no.2

Dear essykkr,
i agree with Abbas P.S. that by virtue of sub para (ii) (f) of para 2 of the scheme, new employer of such an employee would enjoy the provision and keep him away from the membership as an excluded employee when his basic salary exceeds Rs. 6500/
what u r stating is in sub para (i) (f) of para 2 of the scheme. when employee is a member of EPF And by enhancement proceeds the limit of 6500/- he should not be excluded from the ambit of the act and employer could enjoy the provision of ceiling of Rs. 6500/-.
However, the member of the EPF would be excluded from the ambit of the act on receiving basic salary more than 6500/-in new organization.
