Clarification On PF Deduction For Indian Employees (International Workers) Returning From Foreign Country

As per recent EPFO circular dated 8th June 2017, the EPFO has clarified that the Indian International workers who come back to India shall not be treated as International worker for purposes of PF deduction, unless the Indian employee fulfils the following conditions: that (i) he has worked or is going to work in a foreign country with which India has entered a Social Security Agreement and (ii) he is eligible to avail the benefits under a social security programme of the said foreign country. Thus, Indian Expatriate Employees who do not fulfil the aforesaid two conditions and who come back to work in India after having worked in a foreign country will fall under the definition of "employee" under the EPF Act and not of "International worker" under the EPF Scheme, and PF deductions shall be made accordingly
