Dear Vidhya,
Generally PF is applied on salary. Whether it is paid for working days or holidays is not a matter. I don't know what message you received from labour office. Kindly post the message, so that we may know the exact fact.

I second Abbas, the PF has to be calculated on the Salary Paid for the month, secondly if any change then the notification will come from the PF Office and not Labor Office.
From India, Ahmadabad
I Agree with Abbas and Saaji, PF will be calculated on monthly salary paid (Basic +DA)
Not on present day or weekly off.
But PF will attract if any employees worked on any National or Festival Holiday.
coz that is also considered as a part of salary.
But if incase of any inspection from Dept.of Labour and any violation found in PF remittance they have to bring it to the notice of PF authority or to PF enforcement Officer.
Accordingly the concerned department will act further. But not the labour department.

Dear Friend, PF is to be deducted on basic earn on working days. On Week off and PH we don’t..On Pf what we earn is not considerable for PF Calculations.

Dear friend
If any employees worked on National and Festival Holiday, for example Oct-2nd(Gandhi Jayanti), they are entitled for double the wages of their salary. Under National and Festival Holidays act. Accordingly the earning for that particular day PF will attract.

Dear Vidhya,

You will have to make EPF payment for holidays and weekly off if the wages are being paid for these days. It is very well clear from the definition of wages u/s 2(g) of the Employees Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The relevant section is given below:

“basic wages” means all emoluments which are earned by an employee while on duty or [on leave or on holidays with wages in either case] in accordance with the terms of the contract of employment and which are paid or payable in cash to him, but does not include—
(i) the cash value of any food concession;
(ii) any dearness allowance (that is to say, all cash payments by whatever name called paid to an employee on account of a rise in the cost of living), house-rent allowance, overtime allowance, bonus commission or any other similar allowance payable to the employee in respect of his employment or of work done in such employment;
(iii) any presents made by the employer;

Advice given by the Labour Officer is not correct. Hope that your doubt is clarified.

The extra wages paid for working on holidays allowed under national & festival holidays Acts of the states, will not attract epf.
