This is a urgent request to all of you. I have nominated myself for VPF in my company last month . Today i checked my salary and my company has deducted the VPF as requested . However i rechecked my 80 C and see that i am already crossing 1 lac limit . So i requested them to cancel it from next month as i wanted to withdraw my nomination for VPF . I got the answer from my payroll department that i can only be cancelled at the end of the financial year which i know is not true and we can request to cancel anytime . My company have trust PF department .
Can anybody share the govt guidelines where it is mentioned that i can request for cancellation at any time . Help is appreciated .

Dear Gagan
VPF deduction is totally voluntary on the employees decision. There is no such rule that it should continue for whole financial year..
It can be withdrawn at any time. Just write a letter to the head HR or can personally talk , mentioning for cancellation of VPF deduction w.e.f month onwards.
or it's better to reduce the amount to the limited ceiling..
It's upto you.

dear all,
In my company, PF of 780 is deducted to all and I just requested to VPF (12% of gross) from this month and the account department has replied that it cannot be done in the middle of the financial year. does there any rule on clarify

First of all VPF is always deducted on Basic not on Gross. and VPF can be deducted upto 100% of the basic as per employees desire.
Please just go through the PF directory on EPF website.. Their is no rule that it should be continue for financial year.
Accounts department can decide it ....they do it as per Payroll inputs provided by the HR.
Kindly approach your HR department or concern who looks after PF for more clarification.

Dear All,
This indeed a very interesting discussion.
This is a fact that niether the Act nor the scheme provide such condition that voluntary contribution once started will have to be continued till the end of financial year. However, the regulation of the Trust may have such provision and accordingly the same is being mandated. Such provisions are there in case of majority of Trusts.

Is allotment of registration number done by EPFO?
Mostly not done. Because, application under 1(4) is decided by CPFC on verifying certain parameters and the CPFC comes out with notification of allotment of number from the date mention in the notification which is not retrospective.
You can write to EPO and inform about your mistake and request for correction of details.
Even the department has issued you a code number under 1(4), you can apply for cancellation of the same. There is no provision in the Act permitting withdrawal from coverage but by operation of Law, you are coverable under the Act. There are some case laws on it.
