The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) is a Government body in India that administers a compulsory contributory Provident Fund Scheme, Pension Scheme and an Insurance Scheme. Under this, employees are protected against savings from their regular income.
Each month, a sum of money is deducted from an employee’s salary by his / her company’s HR department and is deposited into the Govt. Employee Provident Fund account. Now, as an employee you must always be concerned that how much money is actually getting deposited in your EPF account over months.
