Ncp days not updated in epf by previous employer


Dear Sir, In the last organization where I worked, I worked from 07-Oct-2020 to 06-Jan-2021. Due to some issues in organization, I was put on "Leave Without Pay" from 25-Nov-2020 to 06-Jan-2021. After that I quit the job. After 02 months of unemployment, I applied for withdrawing my PF amount, which was rejected due to reason: "Date of leaving differs from ECR contributions date." After that I put a request on EPFIGMS portal where I was told to get my NCPs days from previous employer and take break certificate for the days contribution is not made or ask the previous employer to deposit December 2020 and January 2021 contribution. Now since I was on "Leave Without Pay" previous employer didn't make any contribution. Now I'm contacting previous employer for updating NCP days in EPF, but they are not responding. I've sent many mails to them but they just are not responding past 01 month. Can I take any legal action for them? Since if NCPs days are not updated, I'll never be able to withdraw my PF amount or pensions amount in future.

Don't go for updating the NCP days, I don't think it can be updated once ECR is generated. Please process for submission of a Break in service certificate. This is solve the problem.

Dear Sir, Thank-you for your reply.

I've been trying to contact previous employer. They are not responding to any of mails or calls.

Please suggest how can I provide break in service certificate?

Is there a format or specific form for this?

Writing letters won't work. Meet personally with the HR and directly ask him/her for Break in service certificate, though in most of the cases HR are ignorant on this form. In case you are facing problem, please don't hesitate to engage a PF consultant/Advocate for this purpose who has a good laise with the PF authority.

If you have requested the employer earlier, get a legal notice issued drawing their attention to their inaction to earlier reference and mark this letter with an online grievance in pgrms portal.  Hope this works in getting such a certificate.

Once I get this certificate, do I have to attach it while applying online for PF withdrawal? Or do I have to apply for PF withdrawal offline sir?

EPF website states the procedure through FAQ and also uploaded prescribed format.  Please go through their website.
