Dear seniors
My question is , PF should be calculated on Basic , how do we ascertain Basic, whether it should be equal to Minimum Wages as per MW notification of the State , or employer can split the MW , one part for Basic other for DA/ Other allowance and PF deduction will be happened on Basic part. I have got one notification on 2011 May, same has been abeyance on 2011, December. Please advice.

As the law of land exist today you can slit the minimum wages fixed by state govt. in different allowances and deduct PF contribution only on basic plus da as determined by you. this is as per punjab high court but the matter is before Supreme court.

Yes, that is correct , but if a contractor can split the MW in two parts for calculation of PF liability.
Say, the MW is 6000, Contractor split it in Basic 4000 + Other Allowances 2000 .
He is satisfying MW criteria , but in case of PF , the liability is calculated on 4000 X 12% . Contractor is taking the advantage of PF Act , noting is mentioned.

What your contractor is doing is legally permissible. However, he should show rs. 4000.00 as basic plus da
