No, its not possible in any case. they must contribute to PF if their basic salary is below Rs 6500/-. Its mandatory. In case they are already member of PF and their Basic salary crosses the limit of Rs 6500/-, in that case too they have to be continue to be the member of PF. But if they are already member of PF and joins new organisation, in that case they may opt out of PF only if their basic salary is above Rs. 6500 for which they have to give the undertaking to the new employer that they dont wish to be a member of PF. But this too depends on the company policies because generally companies do not allow such practices.

Is it possible to opt out PF scheme for those who have voluntarily joined the scheme (with basic pay more than Rs.15k) ? As they don't want to withdraw the money but want to stop the contribution.

All the new Labor Codes can be enforced only after the Central Govt fixes the date by means of notification in this regard under each Code.
Since the State Rules are not yet framed by many State Governments, the notifications are yet to be issued by the Centre.
