Hi Prabha,

In order to encourage more employment of women, and to support higher take-home salary, this was introduced in the year 2018-19 union budget which provided that new women employees can make an EPF contribution of 8% instead of 12%.

However, this privilege is only for the first three years of employment. Though a woman employee contributes 8% towards EPF, the employer has to maintain its EPF contribution at 12%.
