I have recently closed and withdrawn my PF from EPFO department. After the PF amount was creditted to my saving account mentioned in the application of withdrawal I observed a deduction of 10% amount from my total PF Amount.
I have more than 10 years of service when i closed the PF account . When i approached PF dept for the deduction of the amount , PF Dept has intimated me that system has wrongly deducted 10% TDS and they have payed the TDS deducted to IT Department and PF Dept has asked me to get the amount reimbursed from IT Department. As per the EPFO rules NO TDS should be deducted when account is closed if the service is more than 5 Years.
Now PF department is saying they are helpless and i have to get the same from IT Dept if at all they return else i have to forget the money. What to do now ? please guide me.
