Understand what is the ceiling of basic salary?

At present, there is a ceiling of Rs 15000 for basic salary for EPF contribution. It can be extended. If the basic salary of a person is Rs 30000, then 12 percent of his contribution on that salary is deposited in the Provident Fund contribution. The same share is also done from the employer’s account. But, the employer’s share is deposited in two places. First- EPF and second- Pension (EPS).Also Read: Bad News: Rules on maturity of ulip have been changed by government

Only 1250 rupees are deposited in pension.

The employer’s 12 percent share will also be deposited on the basic salary of Rs 30000. But, the ceiling of basic salary in pension fund is Rs 15000. Due to the limit, 8.33 percent of the basic salary (15000) is deposited only at Rs 1250. If the limit increases, then this part can be fixed on the limit of Rs 25000. Meaning 2083 rupees will be deposited in the pension fund.Also Read: Great offer from Reliance Jio, Rs 399 recharge plan will be available in just 299; just have to do this work

A decision may be taken on increasing the ceiling

According to KE Raghunathan, a trustee of EPFO, at present, the ceiling of basic salary is Rs 15,000, which has been proposed to be increased to Rs 25,000 long ago. Now the Supreme Court has to decide on this issue. If the decision comes on extension, then surely the pension amount will increase. Apart from increasing the pension fund, another advantage is that for those whose salary is above the basic salary ceiling, PF contribution is optional. In such a situation, now more people will be able to come in this circle.Also Read: How LIC SIIP plan work and what is the return on this

Universal Minimum Wage Formula

If sources are to be believed, the members of the Central Board of Trustees (CBT) are in favor of increasing the limit on the pension fund. There are two types of reasoning behind this. First- In the Universal Minimum Wage formula which is to be implemented across the country, the salary can be fixed around Rs 18,000. There is a need to increase the existing salary ceiling in ACE. Through this, it will help to bring more and more people to EPFO ​​and social security will increase.Also Read: Prepaid Smart Meter will be installed in every house, first recharge then use
