India signed a pact with Australia with an aim to avoid double social security contribution. A new social security agreement signed between India and Australia has come into operation in which the employees of India deputed to Australia and vice versa will not have to make double social security contribution. EPFO has been provided the authority to issue certificate of coverage to employees of Indian companies deputed in Australia.
