korgaonkar sir please help me how the EPS contribution is calculated on 20000 basic salary as per new notificaion
Dear Shridhar2857,

If you replace the figure 6500 by 15000 in the EPF&MP Act, you will get the answer to your question.

Earlier there was a ceiling of contribution on salary Rs. 6500/- i.e. 12% on salary Rs. 6500 which comes to Rs. 780/-.

Now the ceiling is enhanced to salary Rs. 15000/-. So, 12% on salary Rs. 15000 which comes to Rs. 1800/-.

Contribution on salary Rs. 20000/- will be Rs.1800/- since there is a ceiling of salary at Rs. 15000/-.

However, if you wish to contribute on salary Rs. 20000/- which is more than ceiling limit, you can do so by joint request of employee and employer in writing to an officer not below APFC . In this case, the contribution of 12% on Rs. 20000/- would be 2400.

This all are in respect to contribution towards PF.

In regards to Pension Contribution, if you wish to contribute on salary Rs.20000/- i.e. the salary exceeding the ceiling, you can do so at the option of employee and employer. In this case, the employee have to contribute 1.16 % as an additional contribution on salary Rs. 5000/-. This amount of Rs.5000/- is an amount exceeding the ceiling amount.

Hope I have explained this to your understanding.
