Doubt regardin PF

Hi..I'm working at an IT organization as an engineer. I would like to know how this PF is calculated based on the salary as I feel my employer is trying to dupe me by making me the entire 24% of PF as against the 12% which has to be paid by both parties as per the law. Is this illegal or this organization is bending the law in a way which is profittable to it. Please solve my query.

Dear Tiesto,

Provident fund is calculated @ 12% on the basic
salary, which indeed is deducted from Employee's salary and
the same plus 12% on the basic is contributed by the
employer. So the aggreate 12% + 12% is remitted to the
Provident fund Department.

For more details browse the THE ALL INDIA SERVICES (PROVIDENT FUND) RULES, 1955.

Tiesto, if you have accepted the appointment letter and the employer share is included in the package then its legal. your total package which is called as CTC that means Cost to company include the cost which is bearable by the company also and the gross is what your salary is!! however, if your appointment letter doesnot show the employer share and they are deducting the amount then its illegal. for more information you can mailme the copy of your appointment letter on ruchichoudhary@ymail.com. i will be happy to assist you!! thanks

Lokesh - it is not right to reduce basic salary of any employee below 6500/- . this is because it will be seen as errosion of pension benefit to the employee.

Hi!

It is not legal, employer has 2 contribute his share equivalent 2 that of employee.

It is not advisable 2 reduce the salary of employee

Thanks
