Under the normal scenario,Employee PF contribution should be 12% of his eligible pay or PF basis , based on the manner in which IT0587 is mainatined

Can you check what is the value under /111 EPF Basis ?

In the case of mid month joining/leaving or transfer scenarios, the PF Basis will be correspondingly prorated and so the contribution calculated will also be prorated .

Thanks and Kind Regards

/111 wagetype EPF Basis is showing Rs29300-;That is Basic pay.

But why this basic pay become negative that is the concern ;Whereas in last month it is howing positive

Whereas the recenly applied note 1568264 have any impact?

This problem is occurring with some of the employee but not with all employee
