Hi Even if you bring him under PF, he will not be eligible for pension contribution. Alternatively you may hire him as Retainer or consultant with applicable TDS on consultant fee.

It means we have to prepare contract? or any other style kindly explicit , EPFO will ask any explanation. Because Less 15K and same amount will deposit in his account.

He should be a member of EPF.The whole amount of employer’s share of epf should go into his epf a/c,nothing to eps.
