I am seeing lot of articles these days saying employees take-home salary will be reduced once the new Wage code is implemented, because the PF contributions will increase - considering Basic will be capped at 50% of the Gross. so on & so forth.
I am not able to understand this logic, because there is a ceiling of Rs. 15000 for PF calculation and even if the Basic increases due to new wage code - PF contribution may be capped at the ceiling limit f Rs. 15000 only.
Then how will the PF contribution increase. Can you throw some light on this.
Where the organizations are restricting themselves PF contribution up to 15,000/- , there is no problem. But there are organizations who are paying on actual Basic & DA which is more than 15,000/- statutory limit, for those organizations it will be extra cost due to increase of Basic and DA (50% of total wages after implementation of labor codes ).
Thanks & regards,
