Hello dear, I am having trouble with the LWF deduction. For whom can I self-deduct the amount from the salary? Can I deduct all the employees of my organization or shall I deduct the lower salary employees?

It depends on the definition of the employee as per your welfare fund Act. Since it is not a Central Act (other than Building and Other Construction Workers....Act) without knowing under which Act you have to deduct it, it is not possible to guide you properly. In general, the LWF is deducted from all the employees other than who have managerial powers functionally. By functionally, I mean, not according to the designation that you have given to your employees but on the basis of what they do, whether they have any managerial rights etc.

Dear Wasim,
LWF is succour in the form of money or necessities for those in need. LWF is a statutory contribution managed by every state authority. As you know that it helps labourers improve their working conditions, providing social security and raises their standard of living. The LWF Act is not applicable to all category of employees working in the establishment. It depends upon the wages earned and designation of the employee. I would suggest you to pls go through your State Rules because it may vary state to state and LWF is also not applicable in some States.
