Minimum rate of deduction of provident fund
Every company may have its own provident fund policy.
However, Law rstrict the minimum limit of provident fund deduction ?
Pleae give me the referrence.

My views are that the laws restricts to have PF policy to deduct not less than 8.33 % of basic salary.

Please guide me with propoer reference of law.

There is no thing as 8.33% Limit

However, The law restricts the Maximum contribution by employer to be not more that 1/10th of the Salary (10%). Amounts contributed in excess of this limit will be included in his Income, and therefore subject to Tax. Since Employer and employees contribution must be equal, therefore the Maximum untaxed limit is 10@ each

However, if the employee's and employer agree to pay tax on the additional PF contribution by employer then they may choose whatever limit they want.

Hope This solved your concern
(ReferenceIncome Tax Ordinance 2001, Schedule 6, Para 3
Income Tax Rules 2002, Chapter XV, Para 97)

According to ITO 2001
ITO provides exemption for tax levies on employees contribution to Approved provident fund
100,000 or 10% of basic salary +Dearness allowance

Interest paid by employee to APF is exempt
1/3 b.salary or paid on rate 16%

Any contribution towards unapproved PF have no exemption, totally taxable.
