By implementing this Circular now EPFO cannot force the Employers to contribute over and above the statutory wage ceiling in respect of their employees.

Pls see

Sir, A copy of the circular would have been handy for reference. Warm regards, Sourav Mukherjee
i have a question,
my employer deducts 12% of my basic for PF. Does this new amendment imply that now i can ask my employer to deduct it at a ceiling of 6500 and not my total basic. actually, my basic is very high and hence the deduction comes out to be high and in order to have cash flow, i would like to reduce the deduction.
Any idea?

If you reduce your contribution as per ceiling your savings will also reduce. If you contribute 12 % of your whole basic your employer also contributes 12%
e.g. if your basic is Rs. 20,000 then your PF contribution will be;

For basic 20,000 refer attached PF calculations with reference to above post.

Hi Vineeta,
Your employer is deducting your PF 12 % is good and equal amount will be credited to your PF account which will be a part of your saving in future. If you are insist as PF deductions as per ceiling then you will be looser. Some well organized sectors does not follow the wage ceiling and liberally they contribute equivalent contribution of PF of their employees. I do not agree that you ask your employer t o deduct your PF as per wage ceiling . I too agree with Mr. Suhas Kambe.
