My Friend’s mother worked in State Palmgur and Fibre Marketing Co-operative Federation, located at 32, Gengu Road, Egmore, Chennai - 600 008. She took VRS in 2003. She died in 2005. She worked in the Federation for nearly 20 years. She applied for PF and Gratuity amount after taking VRS.
She was given information that her name was in the waiting list and she would get her money soon. But 9 years over. So far after several follow ups and phone calls to the Office located in Egmore, My friend was informed that the Federation has not got money. Already people working there were not given salary for 3 - 4 months.
Federation has to give the PF and Gratuity amount of Rs.85,000/- to my Friends’s mother. Now what is the procedure to get the amount. Please guide us. Thanks & Regards J.Dinakaran Cell : 9444151658 Mail : email@example.com

you are mistaken. Federatin does not have to give PF. EPFO has to give. They have stattutory powers to recover from the company even if she has retired. The issue is not time barrred unless the EPFO has assessed the default and allowed the amount due to her to be escaped and 5 years have passed such assessement.
