Dear Members,
Please read out the Latest Judgement published in Labour Law Reporter - September 11 issue page no. 943 & 944, the definition given under sec 2 (b) of EPF can not be equated with the definition given under the Minimum Wages Act for basic wages. Hence, splitting of minimum wages is not a violation to have EPF contribution on Basic Wages.

Dear Murugavel,
Kindly go through the attachment u will find the better information, the circular on dated 25-05-2011 for splitting of Minimum wages for the purpose of PF contribution not Permissible is kept in abeyance. so "splitting of minimum wages is not a violation to have EPF contribution on Basic Wages." is not amendment yet.

Dear Member,
When the EPF appellate tribunal gives the veridict, that the EPF authority has no power to equate or compare basic salary with wages definition of other Labour Laws like Minimum Wages and Payment of Wages, How it is practically possible for a Central RPFC to give a circular or any caomment on splitting of minimum wages.

Dear Member,
The circular that you have mentioned was dated in the month of May'11. Whereas my attachment of EPF tribunal is verdict passed in the month of August'11. The impugned order is pending before the HC not before the EPF Appellate Tribunal. The Court can pass an order with the reference of facts and documents placed before it. As you may aware that, any order of court will never become a law. But, we could take some inference from the court verdict.

Dear members,
It is true that EPF contribution will not attract on HRA, Convy. & washing allowance and as far as the epf notification & court order submitted by Mr. Rath is really a updation, thanks for that, but going through it we find that matter is subjudice so saying for spilt of minimum wages confidently is not justified rather to impose proceeding of enqiury u/s 7a on ourself.
Thanks & Regards,
