PF/ESIC Registration online

According to section 3 of THE EMPLOYEES’ PROVIDENT FUNDS AND MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS ACT, 1952, any person who employs 20 or more persons has an obligation to register himself under this act. However, there is no restriction to register himself under this act, if he employs less than the prescribed limit under the provident fund act.


In the budget 2018, the finance minister proposed to effect amendments in the Employees Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 as regards employee contributions.

Prior to the amendment, every employee had to contribute 12% of his or her basic salary towards EPF as a statutory mandate. And on the same rater employer also had to contribute.

But in the union budget 2018, the EPF contribution rate for the newly recruited female employees has been reduced from 12% to 8%. This privilege will be available to the new female employees for the first three years of employment.

The contribution from the employer’s end towards EPF, although, will continue to be at the rate of 12%. Additionally, the government has proposed to contribute 12% of the wages of new employees towards EPF; this is applicable to all the sectors of the economy for the next three years.
