First of all creat userid and Password on PF website there is a option E-sewa.
make a file in excell 2007 with the given formate in e-sewa option.
save the above file in CSV formate
after saving file in CSV formate open it in text file and remove header line from txt file.
replace all "," to #~#
final download it in your home page which is being created by you.
then you can generate challan.

Creating an excel becomes too hectic.. Instead download the E-Return tools, install it on ur system. Update the employer data, update the monthly data and generate the ECR file through and upload it using E-sewa.. This is the most easiest way.. And this is compulsory as well because later we need to file 3A 6A, 12A, etc through this E-returns tools..

For EDLI u need not ask the PF dept. Under E-return tools there is a option for EDLI exemption. U need to first Check on it and than generate the ECR text and upload.. And keep the EDLI column blank and submit..

Hello Ravita Shukla,

Have u installed E-return tools.. My suggestion is u better go for this tools, this will make ur work easy n safe... creating excell and converting the same in text will give u errors, but generating files through e-returns tools for upload is easy n error free.
