Employers in India pay taxes in three different areas:

1. Provident Fund for Employees (EPF)

3. Employees' Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme (EDLIS) (EDL)

Employees and employers are both required to contribute to the EPF, which is used to fund retirement benefits and pensions. Employers contribute 3.67% of their payroll to this fund and another 9.94% to other social insurance programs.
