As per the 7th CPC rule, one's monthly contribution in one's PF account and gratuity contribution is also decided by the basic salary of the central government employee and the percentage of DA applied. For example, currently central government employees' DA is 17 per cent. In that case, if a central government servant's basic salary is Rs 18,000 then its monthly PF contribution will be 12 per cent of 117 per cent of Rs 18,000 i.e. Rs 2,527.20. Photo: Reuters
