Currently, the mandatory monthly contribution by the employee stands at 12 per cent of the monthly pay which includes monthly basic pay, dearness allowance and retaining allowance, if any.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her press conference informed about the measures to be taken for the benefit of the members of Employees Provident Fund (EPF).
Those earning a basic salary of more than Rs 15,000 a month will now contribute 10 per cent instead of the mandatory 12 per cent contribution towards the PF for the next 3 months till August 2020. Also, the contribution of the employer will be reduced to 10 per cent from 12 per cent. However, for the Central government employees, the rate of contribution by the employer remains the same.
