Members of the EPS, 1995 who had contributed on higher wages exceeding the statutory wage ceiling of Rs 6500 in the Provident Fund may now divert 8.33% of the salary exceeding Rs.6500/- to the Pension Fund with up to date interest as declared under EPF Scheme, 1952 from time to time to get the benefit of pension on higher salary on receipt of joint option of the Employer and Employee.
