Dear All, Please let me know that should we calcualate ESIC on earned gross or actual gross.? Also PF from Earned basic or actual basic?
21st September 2013 From India, Vijayawada
This is regards to your query fro ESIC calculations. ESIC always calculate on Gross Earning. There is fixed rate for the same i.e 1.75% Employee Share and 4.75% is the Employer Share of the gross earning.
PF is deducted on the basis of Actual earning.

Respected Sir.

We refer the News of ESIC amendment in slab which was raised to a maximum slab of Rs. 15000 instead of earlier Rs. 10000 from 01.05.2010.

In this context I would like to have a suggestion to you to increase the PF slab also as the current PF slab is Rs. 6500 since long. Now due to the global financial situation it is very necessary to amend this slab because at the time of retirement at the age of 58 employee working in a private sector will get very nominal amount. It will be very hard for a person to run his family with PF amount and pension amount what he will get as per the current slab

As you are aware inflation rates are in upward trend and rates of all the necessary items has increased steeply. How can an average middle class Indian can fulfill his basic requirements from above PF amount when he retires.

I think government should change the policy and take some more effective actions keeping in mind long time inflation rate. You can understand the critical position of a person retiring at the age of 58 especially private sector employees.

Government should think about middle class family. “Poor are becoming poor day by day”

Expecting some amendments in PF slab.
