In case of termination/abrupt ending of the employement no ESI/PF deductions are to be made-and notice pay-(as agreed by the employee and employer)
In case the employee gives proper notice-ESI/PF deductions are to be made normally.

My doubt is according to the Act PF should be deducted on payable salary , Interim advance and settlement benefit forms part of basic
wages and are liable for payment of provident fund contribution and other dues under the Act.Considering the legal implications and aftereffects it is better to deduct both.

and regarding your last, the last payment of the employee will still be considered as salary......... the only difference being the changes in the amount paid.......
