Thanks for arranging this session, it will be very useful. I have a few questions.

Q1: Can the employer provide an option to employees to choose to contribute on Restricted wages(Max contribution of 1800) or on Full wages(12% of basic without any restriction)

Q2: If the answer to the above question is yes, can an employee change the contribution rate later?

Q3: Are there any restrictions on how many times an employee can change this?
