I would be very much obliged to receive your valued opinion on the following query:
A Security Guard when registered under EPF is drawing a salary (Basic+DA) of more than Rs.6500/- for 8 hours duty and he works 30 days a month. If his salary (basic+da) falls below Rs. 6500/- due to absence or leave, is it enough to pay PF contribution for the salary he receives after leave deduction or is he liable to pay for Rs.6500/- which is the limit prescribed under the EPF Act.
If any rulings/notification/order are available supporting either of the views, kindly provide that also.
Looking forward to your comments and thanking you in advance.

Hi Nair PF will be deducted on eligible salary after deducting leave days and leave days are called NCP days i.e. non-contributing period. Thanks V K Gupta

Thank you Mr Gupta.
However I should apologize to you and other gentlemen for making a mistake in my presentation of the query.
Please permit me to re-phrase my opening line as \"An exempted Security Guard (joining salary more than Rs.6500/-),if his salary falls below Rs.6500/- after leave deduction ,is he liable to pay pf contribution “

Hi Nair, No he will not become member of EPF. EPF membership is not on the basis of earnings but on the basis of salary-rate (Basic + DA). Thanks V K Gupta
