Hi, In My plant 120 No’s management trainees is there, they are working on stipend basis. These Trainees is eligible for EPF?. Please suggested me. With Regards Shyam

Management trainees are to be covered under EPF. Only those trainees who are engaged under the Apprentice Act which pertains to trade apprentices and those engaged following the provisions of certified Standing Orders are excluded from coverage. In order to engage 12 management trainees there should be at least 4 or 5 times of managers who can train these trainees. Simply, there is a proportion of trainees to permanent employees and any trainee above this will invariably be regarded as employees within the scope of labour Acts.

Hello Madhu,
Thanks your posts always guide us and I have a query. Who all are eligible to engage under the Apprentice Act? Can hospital be registered under the Apprentice Act and what position we can include?
Recently I heard that Apprentice Act is also included under the preview of EPF and ESI is it true?
Thanks for your support.

There are different trades notified by the government in which we can engage apprentice trainees. In the past it was confined only to technical apprentices who come out from ITIs and Engineering Colleges. But now, other areas have also been included in the list of trades.Please go through the attachment which speaks about trades under Apprentice Act. I am not sure whether nurses and other hospital staff are also included. You can contact the Apprentice Adviser at Related Instruction Centre which functions at district level for details.
Apprentices engaged under Apprentice Act are still out of coverage of ESI, EPF and other labour enactments, like Payment of Bonus Act, Payment of Gratuity Act, Minimum Wages Act etc.
