Here is some good news for those of you contributing towards provident fund from your salary with Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) of India. Going forward, salaried people would no longer have to go through the tedious and rather long process of knowing the details of their PF account. Every bit of information related to Provident fund that you may want to track would be just a ‘click’ away in the very near future! If you are looking for info on New Pension Scheme (NPS), check out another article on this blog by following this link.

This news is indeed of a great help to about 4.5 crore PF subscribers in India. One this system is online, all the pf accounts across the country would be made available online. I have gone through a helluva process of getting my PF account details transferred from my previous employers to current one. After all possible kind of interactions with various levels of authorities, till date I have no clue on what is the status of my account transfer. Hope this new system solves all such painful issues associated with individual pf accounts.

The facility is expected to be fully functional from December this year, according to Labour Ministry sources as quoted by one of the prominent news papers recently. Due to the sheer size of the number of accounts, it wouldn’t be an easy task for the government organizations to solve this in a short span of time. Also the paper quoted – “EPFO officials revealed that computerization of its operation took them eight years. Since April, a test run of the facility has been implemented.” It is understandable that people rely a lot on PF to save some Income tax as well as a compulsory investment mode for salaried class people.

In the first phase of implementation after opening it for subscribers online, account balance will be made available. In the latter part of the project, which might roll over to sometime in 2010, the subscribers would be able to view their contribution, interest accrued, status of application for advances, loans and a host of other activities. Also, as a matter of fact PF department had collected forms from many of us to provide with what they call as SSN (Social Security Number) – haven’t heard any news on that number, but off late we are all talking about NUIA (National Unique Identification Authority). Not sure how many more such unique numbers are awaiting in the store! I would be very happy the day all my information is made available with ease in accessing without any delays and hierarchies :)

UPDATE #1 : As per the latest communication by EPF, the PF account details have been made online for few circles. Check out my new post with all the details here – http://www.mohanbn.com/know-your-pf-account-balance-online/. This data is currently available for Delhi (North), Delhi (South), Laxmi Nagar (Delhi), Gurgaon, Faridabad, Karnal and Bangalore. For rest of the circles, read through this article for more relevant information and links.

UPDATE #2 : A new article has been published with complete information you need to know to get started on Universal Account Number (UAN). Feel free to go through the article, follow steps to start linking your PF accounts with UAN for hassle free transfer of balance from your previous PF accounts to the current one.

    Hello Sir,

    I changed company A to company B in Jan 2012. PF transfer was initiated on JUNE 2012. Both employers kept saying transfer is under process.

    Now i have changed company B to company C. Now employer B is telling transfer was not successful so you can try transferring from company A to company C.

    My Company A PF number doesn’t seem to be active anymore.

    Please help me as PF transfer amount is very Big money.

  • Nisar Hameed Khaloo November 28, 2014, 5:36 am

    Hello Mohan,
    I have transferred my PF from IBM Daksh with the PF Account# GN/GGN/—/— in to the IBM India with the PF Account# PY/KRP/—-/— I have also received a confirmation message in June/July 2014 stating that the amount has been transferred.
    However when i check my UAN A/C# —–, the transferred amount is not yet reflecting in my passbook. Now i am quite worried about my transferred amount, i am not sure where it was sent to.

    I have also contacted IBM India Regional EPF office in Karnataka, where they are requesting for any payment details like EFT # or the exact amount which was transferred so that they can track it.

    I am not sure where i need to go and ask for the payment details or how do i track my transferred amout.
    Please suggest me as i am really helpless at this point of time.
    Nisar Hameed Khaloo
    IBM India PF Office, Karnataka.

  • Mohan August 26, 2014, 11:49 am

    Hi All, I have posted a new article with complete information you need to know to get started on Universal Account Number (UAN) at http://www.mohanbn.com/universal-account-number-comprehensive-guide/. Feel free to go through and start linking your PF accounts with UAN for hassle free transfer of balance from your previous PF accounts to the current one.

    • Indumathi August 26, 2014, 10:49 pm

      One of my very old employers PF account number is unrecognized in UAN portal. How do i go about getting it corrected?

      • Mohan August 27, 2014, 9:37 am

        Hi Indumathi – this usually happens for old accounts which has gone through various naming convention changes. For example for one of my first employer, the PF account number was starting with KN/BN/XXXXX/XX however today on the portal this shows up as BG/BNG/XXXXX/XX. More so this happens when a city has multiple PF service branches. In Bangalore we have multiple offices in ‘Peenya’, KRPuram’, Bommasandra, Mysore Road apart from ‘Bangalore’ city branch itself and more in similar ways, Hence for each of these branches the starting code changes. Select the city and branch appropriately on the link previous PF accounts page of UAN portal without worrying about the number then and now.

  • Amit August 19, 2014, 7:56 am

    Very unfortunate that Rs. 32,000 cr. lying unclaimed in public accounts as per PF commissioner. This was quoted in Hindu news paper for AP region. Given so much of pain that people are going through to withdraw or transfer the amounts to their new accounts, how do the rightful people get their money in to their accounts back? The whole system needs a complete revamp and hope the new Universal Account Numbers (UAN) for PF solves all of this. Do you have any details on UAN?

    • Mohan August 19, 2014, 5:55 pm

      Hi Amit, UAN is being rolled out in phased manner. This has been shared with employers, once you have it from them you can associate all previous PF accounts to this number. Also, this enables you for faster and quick settlement/transfer in future. Thanks for the pointer, i will publish a detailed article on UAN soon.

  • Meghana Nair August 14, 2014, 5:58 am

    How long does it take for either withdrawal of PF or for transfer from one employer to another?

    • Mohan August 14, 2014, 10:59 am

      Meghana – when i changed companies a couple of years back, it took about 3 weeks to transfer the PF balance from previous employer to new employer after initiating the transfer process. I have not tried withdrawal, so i cannot comment on it.

  • R Deen Mohamed July 30, 2014, 6:34 pm

        Well, one of my friend too initially had a problem with a particular Mobile number not getting messages from BT-EPFORG about his PF balance or account status. He used a different mobile for initial registration and then changed to his original one. Try it out, it should work for you too.
