Hi Sharmila,
Hope you are doing good.
Its appreciable that, I have got a very quick response and informative. As you described, For the PF registration it requires 20 employee strength along with should be a 3year old company. Please clarify me the below.
1. 20 employee cont referring, includes both probation and conformed employees or only conformed employees.
2. 3 year period of operations is mandatory? or a organization with one year and 20 employees can also opt for PF.
3. What are Post registration activities- once the organization gets the PF code
4. How does an employee can freeze his contribution, irrespective of Employer contribution
Looking forward for your views.

Dear Ms. Aisha,
1] PF registration has to be done when the firm consists of 20 employees; both probationary and confirmed emloyees together.
2] Three years is a mandate period but if your employer is consistent; you may apply specifying the company is 1 year old.
3] Once the company gets an Establishment code; the Employer and the employee both need to fill in consent and authorization, PF related forms to carry on the further procedure. (pls. find the below attached for more information)
4] Once the employee has decided to provide his contribution, he shall be contributing and there ain't way to bring to a standstill.
