E-Passbook to EPF members devised on EPFO website

“A facility to generate member passbook, employee passbook and on-request passbook through Employees’ Portal on EPFO website has been devised,” said Abhay Ranjan, regional PF commissioner

Greater convenience and up-to-date information has been introduced by the Provident Fund (PF) regional commissioner, Abhay Ranjan, with respect to Employees Provident Fund (EPF). In a letter to all regional PF commissioners in the country, he has said, “A facility of E-Passbook to EPF members has been devised by the IS (Information Systems) Division, Head Office-Delhi, through the member portal on the EPFO website.”

 

According to Mr Ranjan, the EPF members can directly approach the EPFO website and after entering certain necessary details, they can get themselves registered. The registered EPF members can obtain E-Passbook after entering the establishment code, employee number and name as per PF slip.

 

Mr Ranjan added that the E-Passbook shall be available only for active members and not for settled members, inoperative members, and negative balance cases and exempted establishments.

 

For employers, there is a similar facility on the employer’s portal on the EPFO website. Employers can generate a PDF file, which contains all the transactions of the members against the establishment. The transactions would be from the last approved accounting year onwards.

 

Employers can also generate the employee-wise passbook.

This is a welcome move. Let us hope, EPFO does something to pay the balances lying in inoperative accounts and dormant accounts also to the rightful account-holders or their nominees/heirs. Sometime back such accounts numbered over 2 crore and balance around Rs10,000 crore.While updating database,existing old accounts should also get some attention from such organisations as also banks and postal department.

It is about time that this initiative was taken. Now based on the feedback I hope the service is improved to a point where an employee can do an up to date check on their account by getting ac no and password so the same may be updated in their registered email whenever there is any credit or debit just like in a normal bank account. Also a process to search the database for accounts that have been lying dormant should also be given to consolidate all the accounts into one. This process usually takes a zillion years in the current scenario.

We are listening!
