1. Changes for minimum PF basis Limit from INR 6500 to INR 15,000.00
(A) Changes in View V_T511P
Step 1 : Go to the transaction SM30. Enter the view name as V_T511P and select ‘Maintain’ button
Step 2: Provide Country Grouping “40”
Step 4: Change the value 6500 to 15000
The constant PFBAS – PF Eligible Pay controls the Minimum PF wage.
You need to ensure in the view V_T7INF3, ‘PF eligible Pay’ field is blank for the specific contribution type that you have configured. You can find the relevent contribution types in the HR Feature 40EPF .
Sptes to check view V_T7INF3
PF Eligible Pay field should have Zero.
Where to use V_T7INF3
You have a requirement where you are using multiple Ctype (Contribution types) and each has different PF Eligible Pay and other than 15000 then you need to maintain this table with effective date. This is not relevant in case you believe 15000 is the minimum wage limit for all the contribution type. The same should be maintained in the constant PFBAS as mentioned above.
If both the table V_T7INF3 and constant PFBAS is maintained then the value in the table V_T7INF3 will overwrite the constant value.
