If any body doesn't get withdrawal within stipulated time (normal 60-90 days) they can launch complaint on EPFO Govt.in. web at Gravience Portal. The complaint straightly goes to Regional Commissioner desk.And it has to be scrutinized within 1 months.And answer will received on applicant's mail.The pending status also can observed on same portal.But complaint should be Genuine.
