Dear All
While going through the definition under Sec 2 of the EPF Act 1952, I found that as per Sec 2 (f) "
excluded employee " means ............... (iv) an apprentice (copy attached). Explanation clearly says that
an apprentice means a person ...................... who is declared to be an apprentice by the authority
specified in this behalf by the appropriate Government. NEEM Notification has been issued by the All India
Council For Technical Education in the Gazette of India which clearly says that NEEM Trainees are '
Trainees ' and eligible only for consolidated Stipend to undergo on the job training and shall not be entitled
for guarantee of employment. The scheme specifically exempts statutory deductions of PF / ESI etc., (cl
15.2 of the NEEM scheme).
NEEM scheme has been notified by AICTE, a statutory body of the Govt of India - which is the appropriate
Government under the EPF Act.
I am sure the above points will be more clear to argue the point that NEEM Trainees are excluded
employees under the EPF.
