Hi Shriram,
PF is calculated on the Basic Salary of the employees. At present the minimum rate of PF is 12% of the basic salary subject to a maximum of Rs.6500/- per month. This may change time to time subject to Governments PF Law. <means it is not nessary to give PF those basic is above 6500>
Employee’s contribution to PF = 12% of Basic Salary subject to a maximum of Rs.780/- per month.
Employer’s contribution to PF = 12% of Basic Salary subject to a maximum of Rs.780/- per month.

Hi Shreeram,
i would like to add. if any employee joins you with basic more than 6500 and he was the member of EPF with his/her previous employer. we have to keep continue his / her member of EPF.
To support your claim you need to get Form -11 under EPF from each employee.
17th December 2005 From India, Delhi

I would also like to add on with regard tp PF

PF form 5 needs to be filled whenever there is new arrivals in your Company.

PF Form 10 of previous month for the leftover in your company.

Form 12 for monthly submission stating about the total employee contribution and total employer contribution. Here ou also needs to mention about the TEMP STAFF

Challan needs to be submitted in the State Bank of India and the last date for the same is 15 of each month ( with regard to delhi).

12 % Employer contribution is segregated in to 2 parts

8.33 % in Pension

3.67% in PF

But Employees contribution of 12 % each month goes to PF.

After Resignation Employee can finally have money after 3 months from the date of resignation and for the same PF form need to be submitted to PF Office only after 2 months from the date of resignation.

Employee can also transfer their PF Account to the new employer by getting Form 13 filled up.

The PF return neds to be submitted after every 6 months where in you have to shown till now how many contribution is made by you and your employee.

You can receive PF Slips for the contribution you have made and what is interest you have acrrued on the money which is lying with PF Office.

Dear Shriram
I am attaching herewith some presentations on PF and family Pension Scheme. Hope this may help you. Also some of our professional collogue have given update on PF contribution calculation and return related aspects.
It has been observe that we as a principal employer are very keen in deduction and remittance of PF Contribution. But most of the time we forget to pay attentions to different forms and returns to be submitted to the office of PF Commissioner.
With my past employer i have prepared an exhaustive check list which i'll try to attach by end of Dec as right now I am on International assignment.
Best regards,

it was nice presentation on P.F.
As for the starter we should start with basic of P.F
1) P.F is deducted from basic salary.
2) Employeer contribution 12% and employee contributin 12%
3) For a new joining Form No Revised -2 is used.
4) New P.F nunmber is given by the company .for eg: if the last persons A/C No is HR/36c/180,next No.would be on.
5)P.F amount is depodited every month in the SBI bank.
6) for that u need FORM NO 5,10,Form No 12(A),Challans,with covering letter.
7) If an employee who joins ,but has P.F No,the same No.Can be transfered to new Org.
8) P.F returns are done annually(March-aprill)
9) To do the annual return u need from No.3(A) & 6.
10.Along with covering letter and copy of cahalans.
11) beside this its very important to maintain P.F legder,on monthly basis.
12)Try to fill P.F ledger,so that in the end its not a problem for u.
This is all about P.F.
Thanks N regards

PF is calculated at the rate of 12% of basic salary.
Employee share : 12% of basic = goes to PF account
Employer Share : 8.33% goes to Pension fund and 3.67% goes to PF
If a person's basic salary is more than 6500/- then Rs. 541/- of 12% of basic goes to pension fund rest all goes to PF.

Dear Shreeram, I Think that now u must be clear on the basic concept of PF. everyone has explained it very well. Thanks to all for brushing up my knowledge on the same. Regards Anuradha Singh HRD

Hi Shreeram,
You will require to practice . its like maths. The best way to understand is to contact your PF inspector . he will be right person who can help you understand the same , also read PF act.
17th November 2006 From United States, Boston
Dear ShreeramIn addition to above:-1. If basic salary of any employee at the time of joining is less than or equal to 6500/- than it is mendatory to cover him under PF act. & if he continues with you and his basic salary crosses the limit of (6500/- as on date) than also you have to continue his PF deductions. 2. If you want to cover all your employees under PF act, there are following options:- a) Deduct PF of all those employees whose basic salary is more than 6500/- on max. limit i.e. 6500/- b) You can deduct 12% on his actual Basic e.g. Basic salary- 10000.00PF- 1200/- Pension Fund- 541/*-EPF- 659/- * Pension fund share can not be more than 541/- (8.33% of Basic)ThanksNavneet Singh

No a person with a basic more than 6500 can opt for not availing the PF facility
@ All: I have a problem here....there is an employee who had PF accumalated for the past 5 years and now although he is still an employee with the same company he does not have PF deduction for the past one yr...he needs to withdraw the PF accumalated in the 5 yrs....How do we go about it?

Dear All,
I would like to know that if some one worked as trainee only 1 year in May'05 to June'06, his PF was 1200/- . now he has applied for PF withdraw
how much he will get in return with interest
2nd November 2012 From India, Mumbai
Dear Promila..,
1.) PF has to be calculated on Basic+DA
2.) For submission of PF in SBI u need not to prepare Form 5 & 10, Form 12A. You have to forward 2 Challan copies enclosed with a covering letter and a cheque / cash
3.) For PF No.: It will not carry forward the previous pf No. of the employee who joins in new organization, because the PF Organization no will be change from organization to organization.
You have given the details in the right manner, but some of them are incorrect.

If an employee works on trainee or on rolls, he will be eligible for total PF amount i.e. Rs. 1200/- * 2 (employee+employer)+(*8.25% on the total the employee eligible amount given by PF Office)
