  1. Hi I am Gaurav and trying to fill up form 15G for PF withdrawal. I left the organization in May15 and since then never joined any. So what should I write in Column 16 of form 15G. Is it the sum of salary drawn & interest earned on deposits or is it sum of salary, interest and amount of PF to be withdrawn.
