Hi seniors,
I came to know from one of our branch at Chennai is paying the PF on gross for people whose basic falls below 6500/- and the PF officials also insisting on it. Kindly let me know the same.

Dear Friend,
The EPF is deducted and contributed on Basic+DA (Basic Pay). If the employee's basic pay is lesser than Rs. 6500.00 even then it would be deducted on Basic Pay.
Nowadays EPF officers insist on deducting EPF on gross salary; they insist employer and employee to contribute minimum of Rs. 780 They consider gross salary when employer has given a particular set of break-up uniformly to all the employees. EPF is not deducted on HRA.
Warm regards,

There is a central government order putting on hold any instruction from PF department for payment of PF on gross. You can find it on citehr if you use the research option
