Dear Mr. Madhu, Went through your blog. Good Read. One more point is that in case of employers" who mention the Employers contribution in their CTC structure, if the employers now decide to restrict the employers' contribution to Rs.15000 wages i.e to Rs.1800 per month, then the employees CTC will go down. Hence they would need to compensate the reduction in some other component, which again would attract PFcontribution. There is a limit to how much an employer can increase the HRA as there are % restrictions according to the HRA Act.
We still need a clarity as to when we need to start implementing the change as per the Supreme Court ruling.

In the case of employees whose F contributing salary is already Rs 15000, any addition to special allowance will not make any difference. For example, Your total Salary is Rs 150,000 and your Basic pay on which PF is deducted is Rs 50000. That means Rs 6000 is your employer's contribution included in the CTC, ie, Rs 156000 per month. Now if the employer reduces it to 12% of 15000, then the share will be Rs 1800.Since the CTC of Rs 156000 is already agreed with you, the difference of Rs 4200 will be paid to you by the employer and this can be paid to you under any head because this will not attract PF because the PF is contributed on Rs 15000.
Now it is not necessary that the employer can only contribute on Rs 15000, he can contribute it on any amount and for that there is no limit, in fact.

Good read...
I have a query that if an employee's gross is 19000 per month and the salary break up is as given below:
Basic - 10000
HRA - 3000 (30% of Basic)
All Allowances - 6000
How we can restructure or deposit the PF contribution for the above case in current scenario..

Thank you Mr. Madhu. Could you confirm whether it is advisable to start implementing the change or we should still wait for the implementation ?

On a salary of rs 19000, you will have to pay PF at least on Rs 15000. That is gross salary less HRA subject to a maximum of Rs 15000.
You can start paying contributions now, no need to wait for any further notification to come.

Is it mandatory to pay on Rs 15k, if basic is 70% of total package and balance are in allowances like if someone is getting 2ok , out of this 14 k is basic and balance only 6k is in allowances

Thank You. Mr.Madhu. I was inquiring with some PF Inspectors about the internal guidelines given to them . They said that there is no guideline yet from the Central Board of Trustees as they are expecting a formal Notification to come in .Regards
