The employee is entitled to PF or not depends on his basic pay details. Moreover what is your query, can you spell it out clearly

 Pl. check up from P.F. Deptt. if  u r company having  Trust has been covered Provisionally or Has been covered Finally as I doubt if such a company having Trust was under Infancy Period.Pl. take up the matter with the Add. Central Provident Fund Commissioner ( Pension) Head Quarters at Bhavishya Nidhi Bhawan, 14, Bhikaji Cama Place,New Delhi.
