I am too going through same issue, We have submitted No Objection letter from previous Company.
After the same we have got registered under PF. Now problem is that, PF Authorities are asking us that we will have to pay the PF for New company employees from the date of formation of PREVIOUS COMPANY.
So Employer has to pay the PF for those employees shifted members from PREVIOUS -NEW from date of formation of previous company, it means we will have to pay for 2 times PF for concerned member from backdates.
We are really in big trouble now, I am not getting what to do, Could any body please tell to me whether it is Right??
As sec 2A at PF defines -
Establishment to include all departments and branches
For the removal of doubts, it is hereby declared that where an establishment consists of different departments or has branches, whether situated in the same place or in different places, all such departments or branches shall be treated as parts of the same establishment.
IF BOTH ARE SISTER CONCERNS , AND WILL BE TREATED AS PART OF SAME ESTABLISHMENT THEN WHY WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THEM FOR TWO TIMES...
Your guidance is necessary at the time....
Thanks & regards
