Hi,

Do trainees or interns need to be deducted on EPF?

A trainee or an intern is not an employee by the definition of the Act and the schemes defined under the Act. EPF is not deducted from the stipend earned by a trainee or an intern subject to the condition that such trainees are covered under either the Apprenticeship Act or Industrial Employment (standing orders) Act or the interns are engaged through recognized institutions undergoing on-job training as part of their curriculum.
