Employees Provident Fund is a means to help employees get a financial cushion when they grow old. Contribution to the fund is also a tax saving option for people working in government department, public or private sector. During the working life both employer and the employee contribute to the fund on monthly basis which can be used later on retirement. It is mandatory for all entities to get registered with Provident Fund Department within a month as the employees count reaches 20. Any delay may result in a penalty.
