Exemption for Singapore Citizens contributing to India’s EPF

Singapore Citizens working in India were previously required to contribute to India’s Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF).  Through negotiations with India’s Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation, Singapore Citizens will now be exempt from this requirement.

 

As of 1 January 2016, Singapore Citizens will no longer have to contribute to the EPF. If you have previously contributed to the EPF, you will be allowed to withdraw your past contributions.  However, this can only be done after your employment contract in India ends.

 

More information on EPF withdrawal procedures are available at (https://www.mti.gov.sg/MTIInsights/Pages/Comprehensive-Economic-Cooperation-Agreement---EPF-Exemption0404-7686.aspx).
