korgaonkar k aDear Adya1112,
Once you are a member of EPF, you are a member of EPF till such time you are in employment even your salary exceeds the threshold limit of Rs. 15000.
Your company is engaged in unfair practise by taking resignation from you and appointing you again with no EPF.

saswatabanerjeeActually even that would not work.
The rule is that starting salary of the person must be above ₹15,000
And he must not be a member of the PF scheme at the time of joining the job.
In case of a complain to the PF authorities, the employer would be in a problem

As Mr. Korgaonkar K A posted, even if the salary cross ceiling limit PF remittance cannot be stopped. That is why the employer asked to you to give resignation. Hence continue in service. If the employer is not remitting PF, kindly contact the concerned EPF Enforcement Officer.

drbijoyDefinitely unfair practice by the employer. As mentioned in other posts, an employee will continue to be covered under EPF & MP Act if during the course of employment the Basic Salary and D.A. go above Rs. 15000/- (earlier Rs. 6500/-).
If the employee was getting Rs. 32,000/- p.m. and was covered under EPF before April, 2015, the employee will continue to be covered.
By resigning w.e.f. April, 2015 and rejoining immediately, there is a problem as an employee can make a closure of PF A/c only if he has been out of job for two months after resigning from previous employment, and the new employment is in an establishment not covered by EPF.

As rightly pointed out by many of my firends, complet stopping of cotribution is unfair labaour practices. The Management can restrict their part of contribution to the ceiling amount of Rs. 15000/-. Kindly refer the Apex court Judgement in Marathawada Gramina Bank Vs. PF authorties. It holds the decision of the Management to restrict the contribution to the ceiling limit.
The affected employees can make a representation to the Management with a copy to the PF authorities to sort out their grievances.

balaji.venkatesanyes manjunath is right. we can restrict pf amount instead of stopping contribution. your company activities is aginst law.
rldhingraDear Friends ,
once a person has been enrolled as member of EPF he remains covered despite increase in ceiling limit. Discontinuance of of deduction of PF Contribution is illegal , the employer can be held liable to pay the contribution .
I agree with the opinion given bt Mr Kargaonkar, Manjunath and others.

ravihr4444PF Act does not restrict contribution by just mere resigning the job, whether rejoined in the same organisation OR joined in another organisation, once if employee is deducted PF, the benefit continues with irrespective of the salary drawn, so company is denying means, some one can make a confidential report to the concerned PF Enforcement Officer, they will surely take it to the beneficial of the employee.
