Regards ,

Protection against attachment means any amount standing to the *credit* of the member/employee, that means the amount is not paid or disbursed by the PF authority, once the amount is credited, it turns out to be cash which is now in the hands of the member & hence the received/ credited amount is no more a part of this section.

Hence protection against attachment is not applicable after the money is received by the member/employee

Can't understand the query. Why does one need a protection of the fund once he receives the same from the provident fund authorities. Attachment is generaly obtained from the court against a property, and  moniesin in the bank account., after due process of civil proceedings. If one is aware of the civil proceedings. he can take diligent defence to protect himself from any imroper attachment!

Totally agree with Ms. Asha Pole
