Iam a member of the Employees Provident Fund Organisation for more than 12years and my Company is remitting the contributions correctly.
I had taken an advance (non payable) after 5 years from the fund in 2002 for alteration/ addition to my house.
After another 7 years in June last month I applied again for another advance for alteration/ addition to my house with all relevant details.
Last week I received a letter from PF office informing that my application is rejected for the reason that there is no provision for giving advance for the same purpose again.
It is not mentioned in the application for advance that it will not be given again for the same purpose.
I had clearly mentioned in the application that I had availed the advance earlier for alteration/addition to my house. and the person who accepted the application had seen that also.He did not say that it will not be given again for the same purpose.He asked me to produce the licence number from the local authority sanctioning the addition/alteration and I produced it along with the application.
After waiting for 14 days I was informed that my application is rejected for the reason that it cannot be granted again for the same purpose.
Please inform me whether their action is justifiable. How can I proceed with my application again
Dear Govind you can always apply for advance from EPFO because its your money, you can apply for house, education, marridge,& medical ground and you get upto 85% on ur own contribution.
