Amid COVID-19 outbreak, the Indian government has introduced the relaxation measures to overcome the financial crisis. One of the significant relaxations is reducing statutory PF contribution to 10% from the existing 12% for all establishments covered by EPFO. The relaxation helps to increase the net take-home of the employee by 2% and also give some relief to employers in payment of Provident Fund (PF) dues. The relaxation will be applicable for a period of 3 months from May 2020 to July 2020.
