Employees’ Provident Fund account, or EPF account, is a saving instrument that was introduced under Employees’ Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Act, 1952. Run by the EPFO, this scheme promotes saving through its E-E-E model— investment in EPF, interest from EPF and withdrawal from EPF is tax exempt. The employer and employee contribute 12% each of the employee’s salary (basic + dearness allowance) to the EPF account.
