Hi All,
Please Clarify Can We Split Minimum Wage And Pay The PF Contribution On Splitted Wages. For Example Minimum Wage Is 3500/- Can We Split 2000 As A PF Wage And Pay The Contribution. If Not Is There Any Section In PF Act Shows It Is Not Permissible.

Basic wages cannot be less then minimum wage. This is a rule of labor law. Basic wages are the core of salary structure. They can never be less then minimum wage. Other components like DA, HRA are components to match the rising prices and inflation.

Dear Mr Surendra
Usually most of the State Govts declare MW consisting of Basic and DA and definition of 'wages' under 2 (h) of the Min Wages Act includes HRA. There are many judgements which categorically held that MW could be split (pl see attachments).

Dear all,
PF department had issued internal circular to ensure that employers were deducting PF on minimum wages but later on the circular was withdrawn as PF department is not empowered to enforce this.
Also definition of wages under the minimum wages act does not mention wages as consisting of basic & DA. This fact was used in famous case where the Supreme Court has not objected to splitting of minimum wages.

As such you can split minimum wages so that the gross wages are at least equal to sum of basic wages & DA declared by the government from time to time. But be careful do not let the PF salary to be too low.
