Now that SC by their verdict dated 04/10/2016 has allowed opting for higher contribution on actual salary with out any time restriction, is it not trues that any one even retired can now give an option to pay difference amount in arrears of contribution between actual salary & ceiling salary and can get the enhanced pension? Copy of SC verdict attached.

Under the circumstances, please confirm whether payment of special allowance will also be a liability for Gratuity payment in future.

Now coming to the restructuring of the salary in order to avoid contribution, I would say that if you take the allowances like telephone,medical etc as 'reimbursements' then it will work in favour of the employers because reimbursement against bills produced will be out of scope of wages. But how much can you pay for telephone when telephone with 4G data unlimited is available at Rs 300 and 400 per month? Similarly, you cannot say that you pay more than the amount required for food for meeting medical bills and if so, how much will an employee spend on that? Therefore, whatever restructuring is done, it is not going to help the employer because at the end of the day it can be proved that the gross amount is the amount agreed as per contract of employment.
