Dear Gopalkrishnan, ps mention ur salary stracture then we can decide ur excatly pf to b deduct from salary
From India, Mumbai

Hello Sir,
As per EPF Act - 2012 EPF Salary limit is Rs. 6500/-.
For e.g. Basic + DA = 12% PF
If Basic is Rs. 3562 + DA is Rs. 2912 = Salary is Rs. 6474/- so the EPF amount is Rs. 777/- (12% of 6474/-)
But if Basic is Rs. 3699 + Da is Rs. 3024 = Salary is Rs. 6723
What will be the PF amount deducted from salary Rs. 780/- (12% of 6500/-) As per Rule or Rs. 807/- (12% of 6723)

Dear Bhakti,
The thumb rule for PF contribution is -
a) If employee basic +DA is less than 6500 - then employee has to mandatorily contribute 12% of basic +DA towards PF. Employer must contribute 12% of Basic +DA
b) If employee basic+da is more than Rs6500/- then - employee can choose to contribute either Rs.780/- or 12% of basic +da towards PF. Employer neednot contribute more than Rs.780/- (plus 1.61% of admin, edli) (There is a process to be followed for this, which I can describe in details if you wish)
Therefore as per your eg: -
- if Basic is Rs. 3699 + Da is Rs. 3024 = Salary is Rs. 6723 - depends on the employee - if the individual wants they can opt for limiting it to Rs.780/- ; alternately if the wish they can continue with full 12% i.e. Rs.807/-
Hope this helps.
