I have joined "X" company and resigned due to the WFH issue, company "X" absconded me and credited PF amount without crediting salary, Now my question is 1. Is this the proper procedure for the company to credit PF but not salary 2. Can the company remove the created PF account

1. PF contribution has become due and payable on the wages that have accrued. It is a statutory necessity and has been duly complied with. As regards non-payment of salary, since you abandoned the service, it must have been adjusted against your notice period.
2. Once the amount is credited to EPFO, nothing is in the employer's hands to get it back. It must have come to your PF account, pl check-up with your passbook.

To clarify what KK said, once a PF account is created, the employer can not close it or take money out of it. So the amount paid is your saving that you can get when you retire.

Is there any legal way where a company can reverse the pf contributions so that PF account from UAN can be removed? I mean if employee pay back the entire salary and ask them to not show me as ur employee then it can be done at company level? There must be any way to correct this thing?

No, there is no legal way to reverse PF contribution unless it can be shown to be a clarical error (eg, wrong employee code has been put) and even then it has a lot of processes to be done to show it is a genuine mistake
