Dear Ashsih ji,

Sorry, I could not respond you immediately.

I regards to PF contribution can be reduced to salary on Rs. 6500/-, there are many judgements by various HCs. Also there is a judgement by SC in Marathwada Gramin Bank (SC 2011 LLR 1130). I have uploaded the said judgement of SC earlier in this forum. You are requested to do research of the same to view it.

As regards to Traveling Allowance included for calculation of Gratuity Guj HC 803, in the matter of RM Engineering Works Vs. Khushalbhai Chavda & 2 Ors. The contention by learned counsel for appellant that while calculating the amount of gratuity, Traveling & Washing Allowance are taken in to cosiderstion. In support of submission, the learned counsel relied upon definition of wages under section 2(s) of the Act which is given verbatim as under:

"wages" means all emoluments which are earned by an employee while on duty or on leave in accordance with the terms and conditions of his employment and which are paid or are payable to him in cash and includes dearness allowance but does not include any bonus, commission, house rent allowance, overtime wages and any other allowance.
