in reply to your query please note below point.
your salary must be more than 15000 (Basic+DA). if it is more than 15000 then it is optional to deduct PF from salary. you employer can deny to deduct your pf on ground of the rule of 15000 but if you desire to deduct your pf from your salary then your employer can not deny it. the maximum deduction will be 1800/- only.
I am working in a construction comapny, my salary is more than Rs. 15000/- month. I asked them to deduct PF from my salary. I have UAN No. (Previous Employer) but they refused me and said to me that your salary is more than Rs. 15000/- month so that we can not deduct PF.
Today From India, Jaipur
I have one question, if salary is more than Rs15,000 that makes deduction of pf optional but what about esi deduction? Does the company have to comply with the esi deduction under gross salary of Rs21000 or that too is optional if company is providing other medical benefits to their employees?
Seniors request your kind feedback.
