If an Employee deducting his PF since his date of joining. And he want to stop his PF Deduction after 6 months of service and continue to work. Is it possible?
hai, It is not possible to stop deducting epf amount while he is continuing his work.The pf amount should be deductable until he leave the job.
Hi Rajan,
First thing I wanna ask you that why you want this deduction to be stopped, why you want this dear while this is also a kind of banks savings account and has been facilitated by Govt to all employees purposefully for the welfare of employees.
Well I agree with thangaselvi and Alphonse, it is not possible to stop in the middle.
For your information, from the very first day of employment, EPF deduction will be application for employee (If wages/salary comes under the deduction rule) which is a statutory requirement and this deduction will be done by employer automatically who has to open an employee's epf account and will deposit the deducted amount in the same along with the other deduction on account of employer share..
for more statutory and deduction details, you need to go to this weblink EPFO <link updated to site home>

Thanks a lot Anil Sir, Actually I don’t want to stop PF Deduction. One of our employee want this. Anyway, thanks for writing. After reading your msg., he changed his mind.
Hi! Rajan, Will you please tell me what is difference between pf form no. 3A and 6A. and what is logic of 9 years in from 12A (Pension fund). Please share the knowledge. with regards, Manpreet Kaur
hmm well it is really good that he has changed his mind and agreed to this deduction. See in our Bank Savings we just get interest on our savings but by this EPF deduction, we also received another share/contribution by Employer which is definitely a good thing and more beneficial thn just Savings Bank Account.
Second you can use only Anil..
Best of Luck

Hi! Anil Sir, Will you guide me about the same ? Will you please tell me the difference between Form no. 3A and 6A? and what is the role of 9 years in form no. 12 A With Regards, Manpreet Kaur
Hi Manpreet,
PF Form No.3-A is the PF deduction month wise summary from March to Feb (12 mnths) of employee as well as employer & PF Form No. 6-A is a total of 12 mnths PF deduction record of employee and employer.
There is no any logic of 9 yrs. in Form 12-A.

Thanks for reply.
Actually I am taking a classes on PF, ESI .
So, our mam told us that a person should have same pf code till 9 years, otherwise, he would not be eligible to withdrawal his Pension at the age of 58 years.
In that case, If I withdraw only my PF amount after 5 years and due to some reason I re-opened my account with a different no. then , after 9 years or at the age of 58 years, is that I am eligible to take the whole amount as a pension from starting which is being saved as a 8.33% from a long time.
Is I have a right to withdrawal the amount of pension from my earlier pf account?
Please guide me.

Dear Manpreet,
You are correct. If we discontinue the PF account before 9 years, we shall not be eligible to get the monthly pension. but we can withdraw the whole amount of pension scheme by filling up the form 10C.
But in the same case If you leave the company and get another job, you can transfer your PF to another company and the PF code shall be the same if you fill up the form number 13 which is for EPF transfer from the previous company. So the counting of the 9 years shall be in continuance.
