Hi Divya,
Its not statutory to deduct the PF from the employee who are all crossed the ceiling of Rs. 15000 /- per month. But still if your management wants to continue the benefits to the employee, you can deduct for Rs. 15000/- and pay the pf for the employees who are all crossing their ceiling.
employee salary more than 15000 pm also to be covered under the p.f. as ceiling is up to 15000 pm.
employee may contribute up to or more than 15000 pm...but employee cont.only up to 15000 pm i.e. ceiling limit.
employee wants to pay more cont. permission of the authority sd be taken.i.e. from p.f. authority
That is a completely wrong information you are providing.
Once a person is covered under the PF act and has PF account, he is required to continue to be a member of PF and it is necessary that both the employee and employers contribution must be paid each month. The rule however, is that you are required to compute PF contributions only on the maximum salary limit of Rs.15,000 per month. So even if his salary is higher then Rs.15,000 per month, PF will be computed on Rs.15,000 per month.

I agree with saswata banerjee sir.members must ensure that they post correct information.
PF will continue as usual. The ceiling is to calculate the PF contribution only. i.e. If one of your staff Basic+DA is Rs.20000/- you have calculate the PF @12% on Rs.15000/- which comes to Rs.1800/- as employees contribution and equal contribution from your company too. I hope this will clears your doubt.

Hi Divya,
As for as you are having more than 20 employees and covered under PF, it is mandatory to contribute to PF as per norms.
You can not discontinue for the reason the salary is higher than the ceiling. Like I earlier said the contribution is Rs.1800/- for both employee and employer. However if the employee wants pay more he can do so after obtaining approval from the PF Dept. under Voluntary Pension Scheme. I hope I am right

please explore for PF deduction for members having basic pay more than 15000/pm for eg : One of the member is basic pay is 50000/pm if calculated for whole month so we can deduct his/her PF amount of eligible i.e. 15000 so pf deduction will be 15000*12%=1800. So now if that member remains present for 15 days and basic is prepared accordingly i.e. 25000/- that is again more than eligible pay i.e. 15000. so now please suggest his/her PF deduction amount be 1800 or 900 (proportionate to working days)
How PF is calculated?
PF:1. Employees share
PROVIDENT FUND 12% of basic
2. Employers share 12% of basic of which 3.67% goes to Provident fund and remaining 8.33% goes to Pension fund
(PF is calculated on 12% of basic, where the maximum deduction should be 1800 or whichever is less- i.e. basic should not exceed 15000/-)
Dear Seniors,
Please do clarify my below doubts with regards to EPF Calculations.
Case a) An employee with first time employment who's EPF Wages (Basic+DA) are more than 15000, shall i cover under EPF....? If yes, why? and i need a supported document or statement
Case b) An employee with existing membership of EPF, joined in a new company who's EPF wages crossed more than 15000, shall i cover under EPF? if yes, why? and i need a supported document or statement
Case c) An employee with withdrawn account, due to non employment for 3 months hence, the money withdrawn from the EPFO and joined in a new company with more than 15000 of EPF wages. Shall i cover under EPF? if yes, why? and i need a supported document or statement
Appreciate an update on the above doubts with relevant proofs.
Look forward,
Kishore Tholana
