Hello all,
As per the salary slip, both the employee contribution and employer contribution of EPF are being deducted from my Gross Salary.
My understanding was that only the employee's contribution will be deducted from my Gross and would show up in the salary slip, whereas the Employer's contribution part won't show in the salary slip.
Is this practice by the employer violating the EPF rules laid out by the Government?
My second question is, why they deduct EPF as my basic is more than 15,000/-? Aren't employees with Basic more than 15k ineligible for EPF?
Thanks in advance.

Employer's contribution is paid by employer.
Having said this pls check with your CTC.
Also, if you previously had been memeber of epf, then irrespective of your wages above 15k,you will continue to be the member of epf,

Thanks. There is no mention of CTC in my salary slip. And the Employer contribution is being deducted from my Gross also. Please suggest if this is a violation of rules?

Hello Beazt Bhw,
The salary slip should show deduction of PF (employee's share) from Gross that is correct. Salary slip doesn't contain CTC figures i.e. it should show only the Gross Salary (Break up as Basic, DA, HRA, Conveyance etc.) and relevant Deductions i.e. PF, ESI, Professional Tax, Canteen (if applicable) etc.
The Employer's share of PF is a part of CTC (Cost to the Company) which Employer is bearing for an Employee. It is not expected to be deducted from Gross Salary. It is not correct. Please refer your Appointment letter copy for the same.

Your understanding of only the employee's contribution will be deducted from your Gross salary and would be shown in the salary slip, whereas the Employer's contribution part will not reflect in the salary slip, is perfectly correct.
Your company's action of deducting employer's share of PF contribution is not correct and is
a blatant violation of PF act and rules.
You need to discuss the matter with HR head and Finance Head of your company and
based on conclusion of discussions, you have to take appropriate action.
