Dear Friends and my seniors
I have a question in my mind, can any body give a satisfactory reply of my query please :
In Delhi Minimum wages act says that a graduate's minimum basic pay is more than 8000/- (not exactly) and minimum wages of semiskilled is also not below 6500/- only unskilled are below 6500/- limit, the PF dept. says that the compulsary deduction on basic salary those are below 6500/- basic limit.
in view of above slab no body is eligibel for deduction of PF (except unskilled). Now if a employer will not deduct any PF those basic are above 6500/- then what action can take against the employer.

if the employee is willing to have pf you can deduct is not mandatory but from the companies pointof view if we deduct the pf it nothing by company is looking after the welfare of the employees sothat when they aleave the company they will get lumpsum amount for their personal use(pf returns).
If you have any doubts call me up

thanks for reply to Mr. Siva & Modiji, but i am not fully satisfied by your replies. I want to know if one company who is paying salary to its staff not below basic 6500/- for avoiding the PF liablity then why govt not revising the limit. Can any body take any action against these type of companies at present PF act and rules.
Waiting for a good reply.

Dear santosh,
To adddress this problem recently Dr. G Sanjeeva Reddy , INTUC president and memeber rajya sabha has wrote a letter to prime minister for amendment in the EPF Act and even Bonus Act to include those workmen/ employees who are drawing salary between Rs15000/-to rs.20000/-.
Only amendemnet in the Acts is the solution of ur query!!
Best Wishes

Dear Santosh,
According to the provisions of the EPF, every employee (including part-time workers and those employed by or through contractors) shall be entitled to become a member of the Scheme from the date of joining the factory or the other establishment.
However, if the wages drawn is more than Rs. 6500/-, the employee has to intimate his desire to contribute on the whole amount to Employees' Provident Fund Organisation through employer. The employer can also contribute on the whole amount drawn as wages under intimation to Employees' Provident Fund Organisation. BUT, for the eligibility for Family Pension Scheme 1971 purposes, anyone who joins on or after 16-11-95 is compulsorily to join this scheme, provided his/her salary/wage is less than Rs. 6500/- per month at the date of appointment.
Hope this satisfies your query

Thanks to all for communicating and reply each other, specially Mr. Yogesh jalota has posted a good news against my query. Can any body give the copy of the letter of Dr. G Sanjeeva Reddy , INTUC president and memeber rajya sabha submitted before Hon'ble P. M.
Also at present EPF Office can't take any action against these companies who is not deducting EPF of employees whose basic above the prescribed limit. Lets try to implement this law for the welfare of the various employees.

Dear All,
The PF contribution has to be made on the Basic + DA, and any component of the salary which have the implications of the universality principal. Now the MP high court in wp No- 1857 of 2011 has decided the same thing which was pervailing in the earlier judgments of the Supreme Court.
The PF inspector can examine the universality component of your company and PF Commissioner can direct to include any such component in the PF contribution. These component are factual and are different for the different companies. So do not confuse to apply any such component to all companies.
At present unless the limit is increased by the legislation, it still remains to be 6500. If PF inspector usurps his rights for giving direction not in consonance with the Act, a writ can be filed to restrain him with in the limits and for the compensation for the damages if any.
Thanks to all,

Dear Santosh,
1) If any employee having exemption for pf then company filled form no 11.
2) If any employee interested getting pf so whatever his Basic+Da more than 6500/- or 15000/- (latest amendment) so company can deduct his PF on 6500/- or 15000/- (id. 6500/-= PF Rs780/-, 15000/-= PF Rs 1800/-)
