What is Employee Provident Fund?

This is a scheme for employees. If you are an employee, then you pay a certain amount of your salary to the EPF scheme. The equal amount is given by your employer which adds up in the account. This amount can be used by the employee or the nominee in times of emergency or at retirement.
