    As reported in newspapers on 14.12.2012, the Labour Minister has stated that there is confusion on inclusion of all allowances in ‘basic wages’ for deduction of PF and hence the circular has been kept in abeyance. Presently status quo is to be maintained and no action is required to be taken on the circular relating to inclusion of all allowances in basic wages.
