"From 1st September 2014, the EPFO has revised the basic wage limit on which PF contribution will be done from Rs.6500 to Rs.15000"

Q1. If Rs. 15000 is upper basic wage limit on which PF contribution will be done, is there minimum wage limit too?

Example: IF Basic wage is > X and <15000, THEN Employee is eligible for PF - what is the value of X?

Q2. PF is calculated on 12% of (Basic + DA) or 12% of (Basic, DA, Conveyance, Other Allowance etc. (heads of pay which are included for PF calculation) and excludes House Rent Allowance, Bonus etc. (heads of pay which are excluded for PF calculation) as per the provisions of the PF Act)?

Q3. If Employee Basic salary is 20,000 and he wishes a PF deduction, Is here eligible? If yes then will it be mandatory for Employer to contribute as well(given that employer would not pay more than 12% 15000 =1800).

dear friend,

1) the basic salary and DA = the ceiling is Rs,15,000/- so the contribution is equal to and less than Rs.15,000/-

2)PF is basic salary and DA rest are variables that is why the authorities have not included.

3) If the basic salary itself exceeded Rs.15,000/- the employer have the full option of exempting paying the contribution, however, if the employee want to remit the amount it is the employee-employer relation in contribution. (PF ACT is very clear in this regard.
