In most of the cases, both the employer and employee contribute 12 per cent of basis salary plus DA (if any) towards EPF.
An employee's 12 per cent contribution goes toward EPF kitty, while 8.33 per cent out of the total 12 per cent of the employer's contribution is invested in EPS or pension scheme. The balance 3.67 per cent is invested in EPF.
