If the employee employed previously and though withdrawn PF amount and in the current company if the Basic Salary is more than 15000 then Pension (EPS) only not applicable.

Since the employee is not member of PF at the time of joining the company they can opt out of PF also they qualify the basic more than Rs.15,000/-criteria

Experts correct me if wrong.
