I worked for an MNC for 11 and half years. In my appointment letter salary break didn’t show EPF deductions and as it was my first appointment so I didn’t know much about EPF provisions. Though, my basic salary was below 6,500/-
After two years (mid-2008) I was issued with a new appointment letter of its subsidiary company, mentioning that current appointment latter is based on my previous employment in 2006 with the primary company. This time also my salary break up didn’t mention EPF and on inquiry; they replied that my basic salary is more than required max limit (more than 6500).
But, after leaving job in 2016, I raised my issue again making my 2006 appointment as a basis. Earlier, the company denied but, now they agreed to resolve the issue. Sir, my questions now are;
1) Is my claim justifiable now?
2) Can they deposit my epf in back dates now?
3) They asked me for the deposition of my part and I denied. Should I pay my part or should they also deposit my part of epf?
4) Will epfo penalise company for delayed payments? And if yes, to whom account this penalty (in case of money) will be added (epfo or employee)?
5) If paid, will I get interest on EPF deposits?
Thanks for the reading my complaint!
- Hard to say and hard to believe also. Because EPFO will now raise issues with them.
- Better to wait.
- Yes, definitely. I suggest you to raise an issue with EPFO Grievance Cell Online by complaining against this company.
- Yes. But I am not sure in what way they justify with EPFO about such delayed deposit.
