Remember that the standing orders should be certified one and the number of trainees so engaged bear a particular percentage of the regular workmen. It should not be like you have 100 trainees as against 20 or 30 regular workers and these trainees work independently and are paid overtime wages, shift allowances for their working in night shifts and are paid such allowances which are paid to regular workmen.

It is true that once an employee is covered he will continue to be covered irrespective of any increase in the salary. Please note that this is not the case of out of PF coverage due to change in salary. This is the case of apprenticeship for which no salary is paid but only stipend is paid.
At the same time, if you are hiring him as a trainee but not under Apprentice Act, then his status will become that of a worker and the remuneration that you pay will be called wages or salary even though for your accounting purpose etc you may call it as stipend. Since the status of such trainee is just like worker and the stipend paid is nothing but wages, he should be given PF coverage.
