I hope I receive an answer, as I'm in a fix at the moment.
It's my first job. I'm working in a private company that is not doing well financially. However, due to a lack of working experience, I agreed to join in April 2018 despite knowing that the salaries were delayed. Salaries were running in 4-5 months delay at that time.A lot of the existing employees had told me when joining to not opt for PF as the employer's contribution was delayed too. Still, when filling out the forms, I filled out my pension and PF forms too.
Salaries have more-or-less regularized now, and I was confirmed into service after 8-months of joining. Yesterday, however, I noticed that there is no entry called PF in my salary slip for any months, despite me opting for it. I though that maybe no PF would be paid when you're under probation - but that ended 4 months ago. Still, since November, even my employees contribution didn't get deducted from my basic salary. (which is conveniently Rs. 15,001. But I did opt for PF!) My PF account hasn't even been opened by my company yet! It's my fault that I didn't notice all this until now, but I have brought it to the notice of my company's HR dept yesterday.
My questions are as follows:
1. Can employee's contribution be deducted all at once from my upcoming salary for all the PF that is in arrears? I don't mind getting Rs 0 as my basic in my upcoming salary, so long as this arrears is addressed.
2. Which brings the question: since when is PF supposed to be deducted from the employee's basic salary? Since my date of joining the company viz. April 2018? Or since my date of confirmation, which is November 2018? The deduction of Rs. 1800 per month needs to be done accordingly. I wanted your opinion because I needed to know the answer from someone who knows about the subject and who is not part of the company.
3. I have not received any increment after confirmation so the amount payable will be the same since it is supposed to be paid i.e., 1800 rupees per month.
4. When is the employer's contribution supposed to be given after my employee's contribution is paid? Is there anything I need to do - fill up a form or submit an application? I wanted to know what the time-frame is so that I can be aware when I'm keeping an eye out henceforth.
Thanks for the help!
