REDUCTION OF STATUTORY PF CONTRIBUTION FOR MAY-JUL 2020 MAY-JUL 2020 Government has reduced statutory EPF contribution of private sector employers
and employees from current mandated 12% to 10% for next 3 months. The EPF cut
will be applicable for the month of June, July and August 2020. However, for
government PSUs the employers contribution will remain at 12% but PSU
employees can pay 10%. For all employees covered under the EPF Scheme, the
rate of employer¿s and employee¿s contribution is 12% of monthly basic pay.
Reduction in the employee's contribution from 12% to 10% may increase the
take home salary or the cash-in-hand of the employee.
