Employee Provident Fund is a defined contribution scheme, wherein, there's an equal contribution of a fixed sum to the Employee Provident Fund Organization from both, the employer and the employee. In case the provident funds have exempt status, the employer is responsible for the provision of benefits and must ensure that the fund earns at least equivalent to EPFO rate or more.

The gross Salary here includes Basic + DA for one Month and the deducted amount is maintained by EPFO Accounts. But in some Organizations the fund is managed by Organizations through LIC etc. Hence the annual deduction and deposit statement i.r.o. of an Employee is to be obtained from F&A Section of the respective Organization.

Well, Provident Fund and Employee Provident Fund (EPF) are the same thing. There is no difference between the two, hence there should be no confusion.

For EPF, both the employee and the employer contribute an equal amount of 12% of the monthly salary of the employee. Employees can contribute more than 12% of their salary voluntarily, however the employer is not bound to match the extra contribution of the employee. There is a very well written blog on how PF calculations are done, you may like to read it and get more information https://empxtrack.com/blog/esi-pf-statutory-compliance/ .

There’s one more long-term investment scheme called Public Provident Fund (PPF) which provides income tax deduction under section 80C for the amount invested (subject to a limit of Rs 1.5 lakh a year). In the PPF scheme, an employee can invest their money without any involvement of their employer and it has a lock period of minimum 15 years.
