Hi Mallik, According to Section 1 of the Employees' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952, provisions of the said Act are applicable to the establishments (including International Pvt Ltd Companies) having 20 or more "persons" on any day of the year. Even if this number consequently falls below 20, the Act continues to apply to the concerned establishments. At present, requirement of minimum wage/salary of Rs 7,500 provided under Employees' Provident Fund Scheme, 1952 (Section 26) is applicable to employees in order to be able to become members of the Fund and the same has nothing to do with the obligations of the employer or in any way affect the necessity for an establishment to make necessary contributions. Infact, via notification dated October 1 2008, some recent amendments have been made to the Act according to which every employer shall have to give details of the “international workers” employed in the concern in Form IW-1 within 15 days of the notification and make a PF contribution for them as well.I hope it will help. Kind regards,Adv. Shilpi
