Provident Fund and Pension Schemes are Social Security Schemes. SocialSecurity means anything done for the comfort and improvement, intellectualand social well being of the employees over and above the wages paid.Provident Fund involves contribution of both employer and employee and inI.L. Employees who are the members of the Provident Fund are alsomembers of pension scheme. These measures enable employees and hisfamily to lead a comfortable life and face financial hardships.Provident Fund and Pension Schemes are Social Security Measuresundertaken keeping in view the footer of industrial workers after theirretirement or for their dependants in case of death in early age.Provident Fund is a Social Security Scheme in which compulsorycontribution of both the employer and employee is necessary. The objectivebehind this scheme was to provide some relief and benefits either to theemployee after their retirement or to his dependants in case of his death.In IL 12% contribution of employer is necessary and employee cancontribute upto 80%I.L has its own trust named “Instrumentation Limited Provident Trust”.It is recognized by Provident Fund commissioner of Rajasthan and also bycommissioner of Income Tax.The Regional Commissioner centrally controls this trust.Government of India gave authority to IL to make its own fund, makeinvestments to that fund, action loan to their employees etc but according tothe rules and regulations laid down by central government.A part of salary is paid to the employees and remaining is paid ininstallments as per convenience of the company.The Trust also sanction loan to the employees of IL out of he amount ofProvident Fund contribution collected from the employees and that amountis totally non-refundable i.e. loan taken from the employees is not takenback and that is deducted from the amount of Provident Fund received fromemployees and the interest is payable on the balance amount remaining inthe provident fund account.
Although Provident Fund is an effective Old Age and Survivorship Benefit,but in a case where death of employee is at early age, say after putting in acouple of years of decade service, the accumulation in the provident fund atthe credit of such employee would be too meager and the family would bederiving little benefit from the fund.The Government gave the matter a serious thinking to find out the ways andmeans by which the future interests of a family in distress can besafeguarded after the earning member makes an exit before he reaches theage of retirement.An Employee’s Pension Fund has been created for this purpose by divertinga portion of the employer’s contributions to the Provident Fund.

PROVIDENT FUND It is a non-security fund and it is the form of saving. There are mainly four types of provident fund- statutory provident fund, recognized provident fund, unrecognized provident fund and public provident fund.1. STATUTORY PROVIDENT FUND: - Statutory provident fund was set up in 1925. Government, semi-Government organizations, Local authorities, railways, Universities and Educational Institutions, maintain this fund. In statutory provident fund, contribution from the employer is exempt from tax. Deduction under section 80C of employee’s contribution is available to the interest credited to the provident fund which is exempt from tax and the lump sum amount which is paid at the time of retirement is also exempt from tax.2. RECOGNISED PROVIDENT FUND: - Recognized provident fund is referred in this manner because it is recognized by the Commissioner of Income Tax according to the rules of the Income Tax Act. When the commissioner of Income Tax recognizes this fund, it becomes recognized also by the provident fund commissioner. Recognized provident fund is also contributed to in the same way as statutory provident fund, i.e. both by the employer and the employee. Contribution of employer & employee & interest are also exempt but upto a certain limit.3. UNRECOGNISED PROVIDENT FUND: - Unrecognized provident fund is Taxable when the employer contributes to it but relief under section 80 is not available to the investor. The interest which is credited to this account is, however, Taxable and the payment which is received in respect of the employee’s own contribution at the time of retirement is also taxable.
4. PUBLIC PROVIDENT FUND:- In public provident fund ,the employer does not contributes amount. It is a fund provided for non- salaried people to mobilize personal savings. Any person from the public, whether salaried or self-employed, can open a public provident fund Account at any branch of the state bank of India. In this fund the employer does not contribute, but relief under section 80 is available and the interest credited to this fund is exempt from tax. The amount received at the timed termination of this contract is also exempt from tax. CONTRIBUTION OF EMPLOYER’S AND EMPLOYEE’S TOWARDS PROVIDENT FUNDAccording to Provident Fund Act, 1952, presently,Contribution of Employer is 12% of Basic Pay + Dearness AllowanceContribution of Employee is also 12% of Basic Pay + Dearness AllowanceIN INSTRUMENTATION LIMITED:Contribution of Employer is 12% of Basic pay + Dearness AllowanceContribution of employee (voluntary)Upto 80% of Basic Pay + Dearness AllowanceMinimum: -12% of Basic Pay + Dearness AllowanceBut in I.L. all the members to the Provident Fund (whether oncontact/regular/casual, even peon) contributes to the Provident Fund.The reason behind this type of contribution by employees in I.L.is they arenot paid full monthly salary because it is a sick unitFOR EXAMPLE: -Suppose salary of an employee is Rs.20000 per month. But he will be paidRs.5000 in that month to the maximum extent and the balance will be paid
to him in installments according to the convenience of the company withoutany interest.Therefore, the employees of I.L.prefer to contribute upto 80% of their BasicPay + Dearness Allowance towards Provident Fund at an interest rate or8.5% per month keeping in mind the concept of present value, according towhich the present value of a rupee to be received in future is less than one orthe worth of a rupee tomorrow will be more than what it is today. This isbecause the money has alternative uses. The rupee available at present canbe invested either in other projects or it can be deposited in a bank at certainrate of interest. EMPLOYEES PROVIDENT FUND OF INSTRUMENTATION LIMITEDI.L has its own trust named “Instrumentation Limited EmployeesProvident Fund Trust”. It is recognized by Provident Fund Commissionerof Rajasthan and also by Commissioner of Income Tax.The Regional Commissioner centrally controls this trust.TYPES OF TRUST: • Uncovered • Exempted • UnexpectedTRUST OF I.L. IS EXEMPTED: Government of India gave authority to IL to make its own fund, makeinvestments to that fund, action loan to their employees etc but according tothe rules and regulations laid down by Central Government.

HISTORY AND OBJECTS OF PROVIDENT FUND AND PENSION SCHEME The Employee’s Provident Fund & Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 instituted a Compulsory Contributory Fund for the future of the employee after his retirement or for his dependents in case of his early death. In Welfare State like India the responsibility lies upon the state to provide for some legislation whereby the workers working in factories or other establishments may get some financial assistance in old age. Such measures are common features in industrially advanced countries. But due to various difficulties particularly financial and administrative, the state could not enact a law, which could provide some measure of financial security to workers in his old age, or their families or dependents after death. A way out was found and a Contributory Provident Fund Scheme was conceived in which both employer and employee would contribute and the funds so raised could be depended upon to held the worker in old age. The first legislative measure in India to cover industrial workers was the Coal Mines Provident Fund & Bonus Act, 1984.the legislation was designed to make adequate provisions for the future of labor in coal mines, to inculcate in them a habit of thrift and to stabilize the labor force in the coal mining industry. As a result of the experience gained out of working of the coal mines Provident Fund Schemes and because of the persistent demand made of the central government for extending similar benefits to workers employed in other industries the employees Provident Fund Act was passed in 1952. The object of the act is to provide for the institution of Provident Fund & Family Pension And Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme for employees in factories and other establishments. The provisions have been made for the better future of the industrial workers on
his retirement and for dependents in case of his death while in establishmentEXTENT AND APPLICATION OF PROVIDENT FUND AND PENSION SCHEME The act extends to the whole of India except the State of Jammu and Kashmir. Subject to the provisions of sec 16,the act applies to: - Every Establishment which is a factory engaged in any industry manufacturing: -cement, cigarattes, electricals or general engineering products iron and steel, paper, textile, mathes, edible oils, fats, sugar, rubber, electricity, tea, painting, glass, stonewares, pipes, sanitary wares, electrical porcelain, insulators, tiles, heavy and fine chemicals, indigo, lac, non-edible vegetables and animal oils and fats, mica, plywood, fruits, & vegetable preservation, confectionary etc. 1.

DEFINITION OF RESEARCHResearch in common parlance refers to a search for knowledge. It is ascientific and systematic search for pertinent information on a specific topic.“Research may be defined as a systematized effort to gain new knowledge.” -Redman and Moray PROCESS OF RESEARCH Problem Identification and definition Research Design (a) Type of Research (b) Unit Identification (c) Sampling Data collection Data Analysis and representation Interpretation of the result Suggestation
TYPES OF RESEARCHThere are various types of research like: - 1) Descriptive v/s analytical 2) Applied v/s fundamental 3) Quantitative v/s qualitative 4) Conceptual v/s empirical RESEARCH DESIGN “A research design is simply the framework or plan for a study that is usedas a guide in collecting and analyzing the data. It is blueprint that is followedin completing a study.”TYPES OF RESEARCH: • Descriptive Research: Descriptive studies, as their name implies, are designed to describe something- for example, the characteristics of users of a given product; the degree to which product use varies with income, age or other characteristics. DATA COLLECTIONThe task of data collection beings after a research problem has been defined and research design/ plan chalked out. While deciding about the method ofdata collection to be used for study, the researcher should keep in mind twotypes of data.
There are two types of data • Primary data • Secondary data COLLECTION OF PRIMARY DATA It is collected afresh and for the first time, thus happen to be original in character. Primary data is collection of data through questionnaire, interview method, observation method, etc. In my research I opted for questionnaire method. Questionnaire was filled by Finance Department and Procurement Division. WAY OF PRIMARY DATA COLLECTION: 1. Observation Method 2. Interview method 3. Questionnaires 4. Schedules etc. COLLECTION OF SECONDARY DATA These are those data which have been already collected by someone else and which have already been passed through the statistical process. When the researcher utilizes secondary data, than he has to look into various sources from where they can obtain them. Secondary data may either be published data or unpublished data. Published data are available – 1. Newspapers and Journals 2. Market Reports 3. Government Publications 4. Book Magazines 5. International Publications etc.
Un Published data are available –Dairies, letters, unpublished biographies and autobiographies and alsomay be available with scholars and research workers, trade associations,labour bureaus and other public/ private individuals and organizations. Secondary data was collected through annual reports and thebrochures of I.L.LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY:-1. DIFFICULTY IN DATA COLLECTION: - A great of problemis faced during data collection (secondary) due to the improper recordkeeping by the employees of I.L.2.LACK OF CO-OPERATION OF EMPLOYEES: - General co-operation of the employee is to be achieved in the organization is one of the major limitations of the project.3.TIME CONSTRAINT: - The most glaring of any constraints is the short time from within which a certain objective has to be achieved.4.RESTRICTED STUDY: - Research is based on the study of data restricted from year 2002 to 2006.
INVESTMENTS OF THE AMOUNT OF PROVIDENT FUND % of investment Securities 1) central government 25% securities 30% 2) state government securities 15% 3) bonds of 30% public sector bank 4)investment in any of the above securities EMPLOYEE’S PENSION SCHEME IN I.L.Although Provident Fund is an effective old age and survivorship benefit,but in a case where death of employee is at early age, say after putting in acouple of years of decade service, the accumulation in the provident fund atthe credit of such employee would be too meager and the family would bederiving little benefit from the fund.The Government gave the matter a serious thinking to find out the ways andmeans by which the future interests of a family in distress can besafeguarded after the earning member makes an exit before he reaches theage of retirement.
Thus in order to make an adequate provision for the future of an industrialworker after he retires or for his dependants in case of his premature death, ascheme was under active consideration of the government for many years.During the course of study of the issue it was found that some industriallyadvanced countries already had similar schemes to look after the destitutefamilies in absence of the earning memberA scheme to provide long-term financial security and protection to thedependants of the workers in the event of their untimely death was requiredin the country. By passing legislation in the shape of Employee’s PensionScheme Government has taken a praise-worthy step, which will be alandmark in the history of industrial workers welfare.An Employee’s Pension Fund has been created for this purpose by divertinga portion of the employer’s contributions to the provident fund.For example: -Suppose the salary of an employee is Rs.10000 per month.Employer’s contribution @ 12% of Rs.10000 i.e. Rs.1200Pension @ 8.33% is charged on maximum limit of rs.6500 i.e. Rs.541.Rs.541 are transferred to employee’s pension fund and remaining 659(1200-541) remains in the employee’s provident fund account on whichinterest @ 8.5% per month is payable to employees. RULES GOVERNING PENSION IN I.L. In the other Central Government & State Government Organizations it is necessary for an employee to remain in service for 10-15 years in order to become eligible to receive Pension but in I.L. no such condition applies. As soon as an employee (casual, contract or regular) becomes member of Employees Provident Fund he also becomes member of employees Pension Fund and is entitled to receive Pension even if die after rendering 1 month service. An employee becomes entitld to receive pension only after rendering 10 years service or on attaining 58 years age, whichever is earlier.
If an employee dies even after rendering 1 month service is entitled to receive pension. Here no clause of rendering 10 years service and attaining 58 years age applies. If an employee dies after rendering 10 years service without drawing any withdrawal benefit, he is entitled to receive pension with the consent of employer.Note: -If an employee leave job without drawing any withdrawal benefit, heis not entitled to receive pension.MAXIMUM PENSION: -Pension limit is decided on the basis of 2 criteria’s:-On attaining he age of 58 years -- Rs.1400In case of death of an employee – Rs.2021 APPOINTMENT OF NOMINEE IN CASE OF DEATHIn case of death, the Nominee Appointed by the deceased employeebecomes entitled to receive pension.If an employee is unmarried then parents are appointed as nominee.If an employee is married then his wife and 2 children upto the age of 25years become entitled to receive pension. In case of death½ of the pension to remaining2 children (upto 25 years age) ½ of the pension

FINIDINGSAs I.L. is having its own Fund and so they have their own procedure ofmaking payment of Provident Fund and Pension Scheme. Based on this, thefindings are as follows:- 1. The Membership of Employees in Provident Fund in I.L. has continuously declined due to the Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS.) adopted by employees of I.L 2. The Membership in Employees Pension Scheme has declined in the recent years in comparison to year 2002-2003 due to the V.R.S. adopted by employees of I.L 3. The contribution of members have reduced in the year 2003-2004 as compared to year 2002-2003 but increased in years viz. 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 inspite of the reduction in membership due to the increased % of contribution by members. 4. Amount in Pension Scheme has shown a decreasing trend due to the reduction in number of employees due to VRS
CONCLUSION1) Employees Provident Fund and Pension Scheme are much more helpful for the industrial workers at the time when his source of income is stopped, simultaneously the scheme provides monetary benefits to the nominee/heirs of an employee in the event of his death while in service.2) Legal Formalities are involved at the time of joining of membership in Provident Fund And Pension Scheme with regard to the appointment of nominee who would be entitled to receive the amount of pension at the time of the death of the earning member of the family.3) After independence, the Government has introduced a number of schemes in this regard but proper implementation is not done due to lack of funds.4) Apart from the Employees Provident Fund And Pension Scheme, other Welfare Measures have been introduced by the Government but they are not properly implemented due to lack of adequate funds with I.L.
RECOMMENDATIONS The Employees Provident Fund And Pension Scheme is the Schemes forthe benefit of the industrial workers, under social Security Measures. It isexpected that under these schemes the industrial workers and the dependantfamily members should sufficiently benefited at the time of financialhardship. But because of certain drawbacks in the implementation of the Actthe following measures are suggested to the Government for theimprovement in the working of the scheme: - 1. Looking at the inflationary pressure, the Employer’s Contribution to the Provident Fund should be increased. 2. The Employees/Workers should be made aware of the nomination forms to be filled at the time joining the organization. 3. Super-Annuation Scheme should also be made compulsory for all industrial workers to supplement the monetary benefits at the time of retirement of an employee. 4. Old Age Pension Scheme may be introduced so that the employees may not face any financial hardship, at the time when his source of income is stopped. 5. The difference in the opinion prevailing in the mind of Central Government regarding interest paid to the employees in Provident Fund should be resolved.
