An employee is required to contribute 10% of his pay to General Provident Fund. If he gets ₹13,500 as net pay in a month, then what is the monthly General Provident Fund contribution (assuming no other deductions)?
Let his total salary including provident fund be = ₹ x.
So, we have x(1 - 0.1) = 13500
⇨ 0.9x = 13500
⇨ x = 15000
So, General Provident Fund = 0.1 × 15000 = 1500
The correct option is C.
