    Dear Friend,

    I think the value mentioned in Form 26AS from Traces has considered Employer contribution on PF also along with your employee contribution. That's why this is value is higher than the later.

    1. form 26AS from TRACES = PF ( Employer + Employee Contribution )
    2. Form-16 = PF Employee contribution only mentioned.

    Hence the values in these two forms no need to match.

    Anybody please correct me if I m worng !!..

    Hello Sir
    Yes I will pay according to form26As as mentioned by you and other members.
    Regarding complaint with IT department,while company wasn't nice to me, but at the same time they can always comeup with that, I didnt serve notice, so they will rather blame me.
    So rather than going through much hassle , I would rather pay some extra tax and be done with it to close the chapter.

    Hi Sir
    But ideally Form26AS and Form16 should match, and I don't think its common practice to include PF amount be it employer or employee to part of Forms 26 AS. I am no expert, so may be I am wrong .

    The details mentioned in Form 16 and Form 26AS should always match.

    If these are not matching - it indicates that there is some error.
