Every Month a portion of your Salary is deducted towards EPF - This will be referred to as "Employee Contribution". Your employer too contributes a certain amount every month towards EPF - This will be referred to as "Employer Contribution".

Employee Contribution: 12% of your Basic Salary + DA (Comes out of your Salary)

Employer Contribution: Another 12% of your Basic Salary + DA (Comes out of your Employers Pocket)
