for EPF calculation
Basic + DA is eligible
ceiling of 15000 ( earlier 6500) is there, but if employer and employee agree on higher deduction then it can be paid. otherwise the employee / employer will pay with the ceiling limit of Eligible limit of 15000 only,
Exemption is out of scope in case of covered establishments, unless the employee reach the age of retirement i.e 60 years
Jyothis (Article) 25 December 2015
Company is not deducting PF on employees whose Gross pay is Rs.15K/more,
Payroll formula is like this,
To check PF applicability-Gross pay Less than Rs.15K
PF Wages for contribution only is - Basic + DA
In almost major cases,....Basic+DA is less than Rs.15K,
My doubt is whether what is the pf wages to check PF mandatory deduction,is it Basic+DA or gross Pay.

EPF ceiling limit is 15000/- that means the contribution is limited to 15000 (Basic+ DA) per month, and it does not exempts any employee under 60 of age.
However if employer and employee both get agreed then the ceiling can be raised to enhanced amounts also.
Jyothis (Article) 28 December 2015
My doubt is PF applicable to an employee whose gross pay exceeds Rs.15,000 but Basic+DA is less than Rs.15,000.
Eg-Mr.A a new joiner of Bltd,whose basic+DA is Rs.12,000 & additional Allowance Rs.4000.I.e gross pay exceeds Rs.15,000.
Is company liable to deduct PF.

Normal eligible amount is Basic+ DA for EPF contribution
Exempted is HRA/ Education / TA
However check the terms of retaining allowance, if its casual nature of pay then exempted, if fixed nature of pay then clubbed,
