Finance Ministry may raise wage cap for provident fund to Rs 15,000 per month.

The finance ministry is considering a proposal that can sharply reduce the government's borrowing costs, bring longterm savings into the cashstrapped infrastructure sectors, deepen the corporate bond market and, possibly, even make Indian stocks less vulnerable to the whims of foreign institutional investors.

The proposal, moved by the labour ministry, seeks a conditional pact with the finance ministry, under which the finance ministry will raise the statutory wage ceiling for provident fund contributions to Rs 15,000 per month from Rs 6,500.

PF is not in line with wage cap This is only a proposal, not approved

Yep, But your topic heading is misleading .... That is what I was saying
bad news for Employers as their contribution will raise. Pon
