It is shocking and is an abuse. Yes, the EPS'95 has set a minimum service of 10 years for getting the pension. Otherwise one can withdraw the contributed EPS amount along with EPF balance. (EMPLOYEE+EMPLOYER ) EPF contribution+Interest earned on this EPF & amount towards EPS contribution as per Table D of EPS, which is given below. Hence, whatever may be one's contribution to EPS, one will get this amount based on the number of services and last salary.
Table D of EPS
(See paragraph 14)
Years of service Proportion of wages at exit Years of service Proportion of wages at exit
1 1.02 6 6.07
2 1.99 7 7.13
3 2.98 8 8.22

4 3.99 9 9.33
5 5.02

Note: The above table is based on aflat addition in benefit.]
This is calculated as per the formula = Wages as on the date of exit X Corresponding Table D factor. Here wages means Basic Salary+DA for EPS at the time of withdrawal. Therefore, suppose your salary is Rs.15,000 at the time of withdrawing and you completed 9 years, then you receive the EPS of Rs.1,39,950 (Rs.15,000*9.33). This is the amount you get, irrespective of your actual contribution to EPS.
You have to apply in the Form 10C along with other forms of EPF withdrawal
There is no major gain in the process as the EPS contribution of 9 years comes to Rs. 1,34,956 (15000X8.33%X12X9 ) and the net gain is Rs. 5000/- however there is every chance that one may fritter away the accumulated PF corpus as well as EPS returned amount and face immense hardship on reaching the age of superannuation. Today there are hardly any saving option available which gives the return comparable to PF, safe and secure investment.
