Companies can create a provident fund and apply for recognition from the IT department. These funds are managed by the trustees of the fund who are usually employees / ex employees - such funds are called as recognized provident funds - RPF. Statutory provident fund - SPF is a fund maintained by the government. An organization may choose to pool the PF contribution of all its employees along with its contribution in the SPF in which case its only responsibility is to pay monies on due dates to the SPF and update employee information ( resignation / addition withdrawal etc) with the PF department. In case of an RPF, in addition to the above work of maintaining records of contributions , o investment of money , withdrawals etc is done by the PF trust which is managed by the trustees

Both are maintained by govt organisations,local authorities, railways, universities and recognised educational institutions.

By saying that both are maintained by governments and universities u r not focusing on the difference I had mentioned above. There are clear differences which have been highlighted by the faculty in income tax Chapter 1. Pls go through

Statutory is maintained by government, recognised pf is maintained by the employer
