The threshold has been increased from 6500 to 15000.
Thanks to Praveen, Suresh Narula, Ashish, Krishna Chandrashekar and Ramakrishna Sripathy for pointing out mistakes.

The formula will ‘blow up’ if the salary increases at exactly 8.5% (the denominator will become zero). A simple workaround for this is to add 0.00001% to the denominator.

Thanks to AIFW members who clarified that only the basic salary is used for contributions in the private sector.
