In EPF, will employer's contribution be part of gross taxable salary?

Only employee contribution is included in gross taxable salary and the same is shown as deductions u/s 80C

My employer is adding his contribution on EPF in my gross salary and also in deduction which comes under 80C. After adding the employer's contribution in my gross salary my income slab crosses ₹5 lakh.

The employer may count his PF contribution to you as your gross salary. But in the EPF, the employer's contribution is exempt from tax. Only employee's contribution is included in gross taxable salary and the same is shown as deductions u/s 80C.
