We have not come across or heard that PF contribution has reduced from 12ver% to 8% for female employees. However, there is an amendment for PMPRY wherein the entire employer's contribution of 12% (earlier 8.33%) will be reimbursed under the PMPRY Scheme with effect from 1st April, 2018. Circular attached.
