This is what the problem.
This subject is being discussed in another heading "splitting of minimum Wages for the purpose of PF contribution not permissible".
I have been suggesting the web designer of this forum that similar such discussions must be linked, so that someone who has doubt on this score and who did not have exposure to go through various suggestions and discussions on this topic, when the try to post such question, the computer must alert him to visit such and such site. Software designing must be done in that way.
Can the web designers look into this?
Now coming back to your point; the above order issued by the PF authorities does not hold water. Because, this is basically their internal circular. And PF authorities do not have locus standi to issue such orders. It is learnt that circular (attached by you here) issued by PF authorites has been quashed by PF Tribunal. However, I am yet to get copy, if any. Hence wait for some more time to know about the current status.
