Dear Friends,
India Inc can now limit its Provident Fund contributions against the statutory salary ceiling limit of Rs 6,500 per month, even if earlier such PF contribution was being computed against full basic wages or salary. The Employee Provident Fund Office (EPFO) has on May 27, 2014, issued a circular to this effect.
Under Provident Fund (PF) regulations, PF is computed at 12% (for both the employer and employee contributions) against 'basic wages'. The minimum statutory limit against which such PF is to be computed is Rs 6,500 per month. The employer and employees have an option to make PF contributions on salary payments in excess of Rs 6,500 per month.
In those cases where contributions were made in excess of the statutory limit, the issue was whether an option is available to revert to lower levels of contributions (i.e.: a contribution computed against the statutory limit of Rs 6,500). The EPFO has now clarified on this issue.

Thanks for the update.
i have a question with regard to PF contributions for contract labor persons. Q- the persons is employed only for 10 -15 days for a work and then relieved, so the wages payable are for no of days of attendance. If his salary is above 6500 but as per his attendance his payable salary comes lesser than 6500, as per the present law will the employer have to deduct the PF on the actual payable salary or for the full month on his agreed salary ?
kindly advise

Hi All, Have to ask all seniors on this order. Suppose the employer is already contributing above the Statutory wage ceiling, then can the employer reduce it to only the wage ceiling. Regards,

Yes. The employer can reduce the Er Contribution to the ceiling level and restrict the same upto Rs.6500/-.
But now (today) one more bill is passed to increase the wage ceiling for PF Contribution from Rs.6500/- to Rs.15000/-. Please check that too.
