EPF India Online Employees Provident Fund Organization has started the online portal at epfindia.gov.in or epfindia.com. The biggest social security organization was offering various services for Employees, Employers, Pensioners and all the Non Resident Indian Employees.
In year of 1952, Indian government introduced and implemented Employee’s Provident Fund (EPF) and its miscellaneous provisions Act in 1952 under Ministry of Labour and Employment of India. Before 1952 private and government employees who were working in organizations they don’t have any idea about Employment Provident Fund (EPF) and its uses and advantages. If employee comes under EPF scheme, there will be some percentage of salary deduction every month from their account to their EPFO account until their retirement time.
And these EPFO accounts will be awarded some interest monthly, until employee retirement’s age. So, at time of retirement, employee will get huge money to inform of provident fund, because employee and employer contributing some amount monthly over several years and this amount will be added with some interest, so provident fund amount will be huge.
There are some conditions to deduction of amount from employee salary to their EPFO account. And, employer should contribute same amount, how much employee donating to their EPFO account. As per this EPF scheme, companies which are maintaining twenty or more than twenty employees, in those employees who are earning equal or below than 15000 INR per month as a salary they are mandatory for registering an EPF account.
And those who are earning more than 15000 INR also their wish to join in this EPF account. Now, most companies are giving EPF facility to their employees. This EPF amount should not be withdrawn up to employee age near 60 to 62 or up to their retirement time. Because, if an employee is eligible for this EPF scheme, there will be a deduction of 12 % amount from their salary to their EPF account. Simultaneously, employer should give same.
Here, is a small note, employer contributing 12% amount to employee EPF account. In this 12%, 8.33% amount will be contributing to Employee’s pension scheme and remaining 3.67% of amount to employee EPF account. Additionally, employer should pay 0.5% to EDLI, Employees Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme and 0.65% of amount to EPF administrative charges and 0.01% of amount for EDLI handling fee.
Here is interesting matter comes, deductions and interest and employer also contributing some amount to their employee EPF account. But we need to platform to check what are monthly deductions and employer contribution and available provident fund amount till now is and how to withdraw it etc. For all these quires this website will helps employees, i.e., https://www.epfindia.gov.in.
