Is there any restriction in obtaining two different 'Establishment code Number' for an employer ?
A proprietorship firm is operating in two different states. Name of the firm and proprietor are the same. Annual P&L account is prepared only one for both the business centers.
For administrative convenience the propritor wanted two different code numbers and he has been implimenting the coverage of PF Act for all his employees in both the places.
One of the PF enforcement official in one of the states advises to close one code number and retain only one code number.
Is it a deviation from the PF rules. If so, How to ratify this
Can I get the clarification/advise please
