Dear,
The benefit of employers contibution is taken by the employer while declaring his expense and in no way included in the gross salary of the employee. The taxability of PF can only be considered in case of withdrawal from the fund, other wise in cases whatever the amount contibuted by the employer 12 % or more is not at all taxable to the employee.
Thanks & Regards

Pension scheme is different thing and employer contribution is different thing. Pension in case will be taxable when he will approved by the FBR. other wise pension will be not taxable. Employer contribution will not be include. In other case employer contribution will be include. Let spouse Employer contribution is 20000. he will not include in income from salary up to 100000, 16 % of interest and 1/3 of basic salary ( Basic salary mean dearness allowance and salary) which amount is less, he will be taxable.
