Hello Sir, I want to know which bank account is eligible for my withdrawing my own PF amount from the EPF office. Regards, Manikandan T.P.

Dear Manikandan,
Regarding EPF, there is no restrictions on Banks. Accounts in Scheduled Banks including Co-operative Banks will do for PF withdrawal.
But for Employees Pension Scheme, there is some designated Banks vary from region to region.

Dear Manikandan,
The annexure to the Form 19 (EPF) and Form 10C or 10D (EPS) states the list of banks. The PRO of your EPF office will also be able to provide you with information.
However, it is generally advisable to open a fresh bank account without any joint account for the purpose of Pension scheme.

From India, Madras
Dear Mani,
You must have a individual savings bank account(must not joint a/c) with any nationalized bank.
For monthly pension you should consult the concerned PRO to avoid inconvenience.
you can get the phone numbers of PRO's from the epfo website.
Hope it will help.

You need to have a saving account no. on your name from any Bank so as to withdraw your PF.
