In this case you have to apply through employer in a prescribed form. Your employer is obliged to send it to the PF Commissioner for payment within 5 days of receipt of the application. The PF office shall as per law promptly comply with the request. Interest as applicable is payble to you till the date when cheque is issued by the PF office. There are authorities for implimentation of the Act under its proviwsions if the Rules are not followed.
