I have worked for software a company in Bangalore for the past 1.5 years and I left the company by giving proper resignation and notice period in the month of Dec-07.
Reg. PF claim (Closing the account not transferring) my HR instructed me to collect the PF claim form from EPF office and ask me to submit the same to them duly filled and stated that they will be sending the form to EPF office directly after completing their part and the amount will be credited into my account within 30 days after the submission.
As instructed by HR I filled the form and gave it to my previous organization. It's almost 4 months over as of now no response from my previous company and I came to know by checking my claim status from http://www.epfindia.com/indiaepf/loginne... that they have not submitted by application in EPF office.
Whenever I call to my previous employer I am not getting proper response. Now I came to know that few of my Ex. Colleagues (resigned a year before) also facing the same problem now I am feeling something going fishy.
Can you kindly let me know the duration take to settle the PF amount and the employer should take to submit the form to EPF office?
Is there any alternate to get the PF settlement soon without approaching my previous employer?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
Jus to give u some information on PF settlement, if your prev orgn has tied up with RPFC (Govt), then its a non controllable matter with govt offices.
However you can request your prev orgn to share your PF acknowledgement copy i.e on submission of your PF W/L form to RPFC office, they will issue an ack copy on which you can directly contact the RPFC on further status.
Also note, NSSN is no more in place. this policy has been withdrawn by Central PF commissioner effective 1st Jul'08.
So i suggest you to collect the pf ack copy & then follow-up with RPFC to close your pf settlement asap.
