Madhu.T.KAll allowances which are paid to all employees commonly are considered as part of salary qualifying PF deduction. Therefore, if you pay special allowance and 'other' allowance to all employees irrespective of any 'special skill', the same should be part of PF qualifying salary. Of course, if you wish, you can restrict the contribution to 12% of Rs 15000.
