3.67% of contribution towards Employees' Provident Fund

The first three components are collectively referred to as the "EPF employer's contribution", while the last component is referred to as the "EPS employer's contribution".

EPF employer's contribution

The EPF employer's contribution is deposited into the employee's EPF account. The employee can withdraw the money from their EPF account after they have retired or if they leave their job.

EPS employer's contribution

The EPS employer's contribution is deposited into the employee's EPS account. The EPS account is used to provide a pension to the employee after they have retired.

The total employer's contribution to the EPF is 13%. This is a significant contribution that employers make towards their employees' social security.

It is important to note that the EPF contribution is mandatory for all establishments that employ 20 or more employees. The contribution is also mandatory for all employees who earn less than Rs. 15,000 per month.
