Pradhan Mantri Rojgar Protsahan Yojana(PMRPY)

The Pradhan Mantri Rojgar Protsahan Yojana(PMRPY) Plan Scheme has been designed to incentivise employers for generation of new employment, where Government of India will be paying the full employer's contribution towards EPF & EPS both w.e.f 01.04.2018 (earlier benefit was applicable for employer's contribution towards EPS only) for the new employment. This scheme has a dual benefit, where, on the one hand, the employer is incentivised for increasing the employment base of workers in the establishment, and on the other hand, a large number of workers will find jobs in such establishments. A direct benefit is that these workers will have access to social security benefits of the organized sector

Scheme Eligibility
 

1. All establishments registered with Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) can apply for availing benefits under the scheme subject to the following conditions:

(a) Establishments registered with the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) should also have a Labour Identification Number (LIN) allotted to them under the Shram Suvidha Portal (https://shramsuvidha.gov.in). The LIN will be the primary reference number for all communication to be made under the PMRPY Scheme.

(b) The eligible employer must have added new employees to the reference base of workers in order to avail benefits under the Scheme from August, 2016 onwards. The reference base of workers will be determined by the number of employees against whom the employer has deposited the 12% (3.67% EPF + 8.33% EPS) with EPFO as on 31st March, 2016, as ascertained/verified from the monthly ECR for March, 2016. For example, an establishment, say M/s ABC Ltd. had filed an ECR for the employers’ contribution for 45 employees/workers in March, 2016. In the month of April, 2016, the establishment has added, say, 15 new workers bringing the total of employees to 60, the employer will be eligible to apply for the PMRPY scheme benefits for these 15 new employees. The employer will not be eligible to avail of PMRPY benefits if there is no new employment vis-à-vis the reference base in any subsequent month. The new employee, as mentioned in para 5(e) above, is one that had not worked in any EPFO registered establishment or had a Universal Account Number, in the past, i.e. prior to 01st April, 2016.

(c) For new establishment coming into existence/getting registered with EPFO after 01st April, 2016, the reference base will be taken as Zero/NIL employees. Thus, the employer can avail of PMRPY benefits for all new eligible employees.

(d) The PMRPY scheme is targeted for employees earning wages less than Rs 15,000/- per month. Thus, new employees earning wages more than Rs 15,000/- per month will not be eligible. A new employee is one who has not been working in an EPFO registered establishment on a regular basis prior to 01st April, 2016 and will be determined by the allocation of a new Aadhaar seeded Universal Account Number (UAN) on or after 01.04.2016. In case the new employee does not have a new UAN, the employer will facilitate this through the EPFO portal.

(e) The employers will continue to get the 8.33% contribution paid by the Government for these eligible new employees for the next 3 years, provided they continue in employment by the same employer. The 8.33% contribution will be paid by GOI after the employer has remitted the 3.67% EPF contribution for these new employees each month. To avoid any penalty on the EPF/EPS contribution, the employer is advised to submit the PMRPY online form at the earliest, preferably by the 10th of the following month.

(f) Employers/Establishments applying for the Scheme shall be fully responsible for the information uploaded. If at any time, it is found that the information submitted is incorrect or false, it will be assumed that the EPSpayment(and EPF payment for textile sector) has not been made for these employees. The employer will then be liable for dues and penalties as already specified under the relevant provisions of The Employees’ Provident Fund Scheme, 1952.

2. The Scheme will be in operation for a period of 3 years and the Government of India will continue to pay the 8.33% EPS contribution to be made by the employer for the next 3 years. That is, all new eligible employees will be covered under the PMRPY Scheme till 2019-20.

Note:- Below amendment in PMRPY (version dated 23.02.2017) was done by government through Office Memorandoum DGE-U-13015/01/2016-MP(G) dated 12.04.2018:-

Government of India will pay the full employer's contribution (EPF and EPS both) as admissible from time to time w.e.f 01.04.2018 for a period of three years to  the new employees and to the existing beneficiaries for their remaining period  of three years through EPFO. The terminal date for registration of beneficiary through establishment is 31'st March,2019.
