Dear Members,
Is it fine if emloyer keep same PF deduction for all the members (except trainees) e.g. 15,000*12%= 1800 ? or it must be based on basic salary which varies from employee to employee ?
Thanks,
Nikita

Hi Nikita, You can calculate it on the ceiling rate of 15000. that will do. or can also deduct on actual wage (Basic+DA) if it is more than the ceiling that is 15000. Regards Pijush
Dear Mr.Piyush,
Many thanks for ur ans. I understood that Employer can keep same PF deduction for all the employees(Rs.1800) regardless of Basic+DA salary. Actually, we are new for PF so I have one more query re same.
If the employer is going to deduct PF as a part of CTC, then the contribution must be 13.61% of 15,000= 2042 (8.33%- Pension, 3.67%- PF, admin charges- 1.10, EDLI- 0.5%, Admin charges-0.01%). Is it true ?
Thanks,
Nikita

To, deal all please give me some ideas about calculation of pf if any body given salary of rs. 12000/-
Hi Nikita
Thats right.things are same only the ceiling wage is increased by this new amendment. Employer contribution would be 13.61% on the wage but you need deduct only 12% from any employee's wage.
for instance- basic+da= 12000
employee contribution= 1440 (12%)
employer contribution= 1633 (13.61%)
Hope it will help. For more clarification post your query.
Regards
Pijush

Dear Patil, PF is always calculated on the wage that includes only Basic and DA. Please see my previous post it may give you some idea.
Hi All, Is it mandatory that employer and employee has to pay 1800 per mnth? even though their gross salary is less than 15000 per month? please advise.
Dear Sir,
