saswatabanerjeeThe statutory requirement is PF deduction at 12% of basic + DA. There is a statutory salary ceiling of ₹15,000 per month, meaning that the maximum deduction is ₹1800. Even if the actual salary levels are higher, the amount of,PF remain same.
The company can deduct more with approval of the employee

Srinivas M VenkatYou are not eligible for Provident Fund membership statutorily, as you are drawing salary of Rs. 57,000/- . You are defined as excluded employee. If you wish to contribute to the P.F.you can do to so. As this is a welcome gesture from your employer, to provide you welfare of your well being, you can opt for the same. And also you will be eligible for Income Tax exemption for the P.F.contributions. I advise to opt for the P.F.enrollment.

saswatabanerjeeOne correction here
One does not automatically become an exempted employee
As such, everyone is covered under PF
But employees falling under the definition of exempt can opt for exemption by filing an application (form 11)
But I agree with you, it's a good idea to opt for PF.
It carries 8.5% tax free income, plus tax benefits and retirement fund, all of which are important
