Hope you have the copy of the forms submitted to the company and its proper acknowledgment  e.g. POD.

The PF department issues receipt of all forms submitted to them.

Your company might have submitted the form/ along with other employees forms by hand thru their consultant/employee or by registered post. Even If it is submitted by registered post company shall have to supply you the details in writing.

It is believed your representations to the company and their responses are verbal.

You can:

-lodge a compliant with regional office of PF commissioner, where your account is maintained, in writing in person under acknowledgment, by post or online at www.epfindia.gov.in

You shall be issued a complaint number and time of one month to resolve. You may mention your date of submission of your forms to company, your PF number full address of the company's local and HO/regd. office and phone numbers etc. and that despite your reminders in person on dated...........and on phone on dated.......and in writing on dated......company has not supplied you the acknowledgment and that company has claimed that PF dept. issues receipt after 4-5months.

You may ask them if your forms are received at all or not and on which date and what is the status. If they do not respond you can escalate the complaint to PRO or you can raise RTI. The contact and details are available on website.

The company has to submit forms within 1 month. In case of delay and default company is penalized.

-You can submit a written complaint to your appointing authority, MD, Company secretary and narrate the incidents and mention that despite your representations the acknowledgment has not been supplied to you and ask their good office to intervene and supply the same say within 7-15 days.

Please understand that:

-For lodging the complaint you need to mention date on which you submitted your PF forms to company i.e. 20 Feb 2011, as mentioned by you in your post. It shall be better if you have the copy of POD.

It does not matter if you do not have the date on which company submitted the forms to PF office.

 

-If company has submitted your forms to PF office, PF office must have issued a duly stamped signed receipt to your company, then and there. You company is under obligation to supply this receipt to you, under acknowledgment.

-If your company has not supplied this receipt to you, then it is lapse on their part, and you can complain to PF office and PF office shall inform you on which date your forms were submitted by company to them.

If your company has delayed the submission of your forms, and is adamant on not supplying you the receipt they shall be penalized. You must maintain a record of all phone calls made by you.

This is a very simple matter, however, if you are facing any difficulty you can take the help of elders in your family, experienced and competent people known to you and your family, PF consultant, lawyer/law firm, who can draft the complaint on your behalf and follow up with the PF office. Within few days you shall get all information from PF office.

Dear Mr.Kumar,

You have presented it in such sweet manner. No more clarification required beyond that. PF Department is very spontaneous in their manner in dealing with such matters. He can easily realise his PF soon if he complied the advise you provided.

 

With regards,

I have one observation that a few companies debit PF amount from the salary but fail to remit to PF trust. This might be one such incident. Are you sure they credited your PF? Do you have the annual PF statements sent from your PF office to you through your employer?

Mohd Ilyas Akhter (Officer)     11 July 2011

Absolutely right Mr. deepak. I am a Labour welfare officer in a metal and mining Gaint in India. I have personally caught several of the contractor's in my company who have stolen the PF dues on their part and also the Pf amount debited from the labour's salary.  They used to make falls reciepts of PF deposite that was brought to my notice through various inspection.

Though very late nvertheless to the rescue of the memebers EPFO has launched online view of PF acount that shall be fully functional shortly.

yes i also feel the same like Mr. Menon that mr. kumar has elaborately guided Mr. sachin for his grievance. Further i must also express my thankful gratitude to all esteemed members and whole LCI team for providing such an useful platform of raising all legal queries to the public at large.

Hi,

I am leaving my current employer on 30 sept and want to withdraw my PF as in next employer we are just two employees only and they are not going to deduct any PF ,so can I withdraw my PF after I leave from this company also I inquired it from HR. They are not helping and responding. plz guide me what to do?

Regards
Ashwani

Kumar Doab (FIN)     24 September 2015

Even if next employer has 2 employees now in the past if it had no. of employees as envisaged in the Act it has to register and provide PF even if later no. of employees has fallen to 2.

It can provide PF coverage even if it has 2 employees.

You are a member hence employer may agree to cover you. Negotiate well.

Remaining a member is in your interest. YOU may go thru benefits the PF covergare offers.

 

When you withdraw you shall loose a considerable amount from EPS component.

 

If  still you decide to withdraw then you may submit PF withdrawal forms on LWD, under proper acknowledgment and past employer has to submit duly attested PF froms to EPFO within next 5 days and supply the acknowledgment issued by EPFO (for you) to you. YOu may demand this acknowledgment to be supplied to you by Redg. Post only.
