The deduction towards the scheme is 8% of the basic. An equal amount is deposited by the state government into the employees account . After completing 10 years of service and On regularization of services an employee contributing towards CPF is given pension benefits, if opted by him. Deduction of such employees after exercising of the option will stop towards CPF and all his future deductions will be made towards GPF.

Now a days it has been made compulsory by the most state govt to shift to CPF.

Please go through the exemption clauses of both the acts then you will came to know that these are mandatory clauses not the optional clauses so please move an application before the authorities concern through your employer who should not have any objection in the matter.

If its rule made by government and it was same when you joined then you cannot do anything to get GPF. Government rules changes and the rule in effect when you joined will be applicable to you. For more details conditions in your appointment letter is needed to be gone through.

The CPF Rules are applicable to every non-pensionable servant of the Government belonging to any of the services under the control of the President.

Earlier, the Government was giving option to CPF subscribers to switch over from CPF Scheme to GPF Scheme (Pension Scheme). The last such option was allowed based on the recommendations of Fourth CPC.

CPF is for Government servants who are non pensionable. In short it is applicable to government servants who joined service on or after 01–01–2004. The Government does not pay pension to these employees and they have to make their own arrangements. NPS is the off shoot of the above decision.

You have no option than to subscribe for the CPF since you joined the service after 2004.

GPF is not applicable to your case.

if the government has made it a rule that you will not get GPF then there is no way to get the same converted to CPF.

However, if the GPS is being changed to CPF arbitrarily without any force of law then you may file a writ petition before the HC.
