  3. Dear Basu..

    Thank you for informative article as always.. I have a question not related to epfo portal but VPF.. Is there any limit to contribute via VPF irrespective of the basic salary by employer and also any lock-in period for withdrawal of money from VPF??

    • Dear Aravind,
      Yes, there is a limit. Including VPF and EPF it should be 100% of your Basic+DA. VPF features are exactly like EPF.

      • Thank you so much..
