Hi
My factory had undergone a 7-A Inquiry in Sept'2009 for the period Jan'07 to April'09 (28 months) and P.F. demanded Rs.21000/- was well paid before the stipulated time in Oct'09.
Now after 4 years and 9 months, I received a Notice from E.P.F.O. for damages u/s 14B and Interest u/s 7Q amounting to Rs.26000/- for the 7-A Inquiry Period. My First query is whether the Notice is eligible or could it be considered a 'Time Barred Notice'.
My second Query is, The EPFO is demading Damages and Interest on whole amount (Rs.21000/-) from Jan'07 to Oct'09 i.e. 34 -months. Now as per 7-A, there has been Defaults of Various Amount, Monthwise for e.g. Default for Jan'07 is NIL, for Feb'07 is Rs.470, for March'07 is Rs.1280 etc, amounting to Rs.21000/- in 28 months.
So Do I have to Pay interest from Jan'07 or I recalculate it as per Default made Monthwise.
Please guide me upon this. Thank You!

Dear All Seniors,

1. Is PF mandatory for employee who's Basic salary more than 6500
2. Is any Amendments or notice from government related to from increase in basic salary 6500 to 15000.
3. What is form 11.

Dear Chirag,
If the Enforcement Officer EPFO had claimed or detected some wages on which EPF contribution was due, which you have deposited after the assessment order that is with delay, the imposition of damages and interest u/s 7Q and 14B are correct and you are liable to pay since EPFO will also pay interest from retrospective effect to the employees concerned.
Another query by one Swati Kishore relating to mandatory EPF contribution for employee who's Basic salary more than 6500 is concerned, the answer depends on the fact whether the employee concerned was previously member to the EPF or not. If a employee is a existing member to EPF, the management is liable to deduct EPF at least up to the ceiling limit i.e. Rs.6500/-. The expected notification to increase the ceiling cap from Rs.6500/- to Rs.15000/- is still pending.
Form 11 meant for obtaining a declaration about membership and can be downloaded from the site.
