I'm working in an IT company (Software Development). We hire freshers for trainee position for the duration of six month. Under this probabion period, we provide them stipend. On the basis of their performance in these six month, we select some trainee and give them confirmation of job. Most of the time we give confirmation to around 40-50% of the trainee. Trainee who do not get confirmed, we relive them from the services of the company.
Do we need to register all the trainee in PF or only those whose services are confirmed in company?
Are they eligible for PF under probation period?
Note: We do not provide them salary in these six month. We only give them stipend.
Please help me out.
Thanks & Regards
