24th August 2005 From India,
1) In form 10-C, in the first Serial, there are two options the 1st one is Name of the Member and the 2nd one is Name of the Claimant(s), so we have to fill only the Name of the Member Column and write N.A. in place of the Name of the Claimant(s) Column (if the application is made by the Employees himself), please clarify whether i'm Right, and
2) In form 10-C, in the Ninth Serial (Particulars of Family), there are two options the 1st one is Family Members and the 2nd one is Nominee, so what do we need to fill up at those Columns, please advice
Thank you once again for the reply, in anticipation of your valued advice
24th August 2005 From India, Calcutta
Thanks for your reply.
For the first question, fill in both the columns with the name of the member.
For the second question, write the name of the family members with the relationship and also write the name of the nominee. The reason behind this is that, if the claimant is not alive during the time of payment, the same can be given to the nominee. (Ofcourse, there are other formalities on the death of the person). But , it is important that this column needs to be filled in.
Hope this clarifies your query.
Do revert if you require any assistance.
27th August 2005 From India,
Please note your point pertaining to form 10C of the provident Fund Act name of the member is enough. do not bother about claimant . you are absolutely right.
the other point is only the nominees name is sufficient. do not bothher about the family details.
both the above forms will be submitted to the PF office 60 days after the employee leaves the organisation. secondly the bank details of the employee should be correctly mentioned in the form by thhe employee. You have to attach the Form 12-A & Form 5 & 10 (copies when you are submitting the same). i hope the above is clear. you can also cross check with Hema who has been quite helpful. all the best!!!!

Thanks a lot for Form 10C. I needed it and I am in USA, I dd not know where to get it from. While searching on the internet I stumbled upon this forum and found one.
Could you please clarify few points.

some "Government" issued copy?

copy be acceptable. Sometimes they want "Original" signature.
c. Do I have to get this form notorized?
d. If I have to request that my brother in India sign and send this
form, do I have to give him some kind of "Power Of Attorney" or
how can I make it work? What is the process.
Bottm line is that I am here in USA and my Pension fund is with a company in India and I want to withdraw the money and deposit in my account in India. How can you help??

Regarding your queries:
a. Can a downloaded copy be used or it has to be some "Government" issued copy?
A downloaded copy can be used.
b. Can I fill up and FAX to my company in India. I mean will a FAXED copy be acceptable. Sometimes they want "Original" signature.
You need to fill and send the original signed copy to your company. FAXED copy is not acceptable.
c. Do I have to get this form notorized?
No. The company will have the form verified and the authorised signatory of the company will sign the form and affix the authorised signatories stamp as well as the company stamp.
d. If I have to request that my brother in India sign and send this form, do I have to give him some kind of "Power Of Attorney" or
how can I make it work? What is the process.
Your brother's signature will be of no use on the form, it has to be signed by you, and the bank account mentioned should be in your name only(individual account), should be either ICICI / SBI / PNB, and the address needs to be complete.
I have neither withdraw, neither transferred my PF money and my PF money are there in my last 3 previous firms starting from year 2003. Is it possible to withdraw the same or get it transferred to my new PF a/c with my present company.
Yes you can transfer from the previous 3 companies to the current company directly. However, check with the person handling PF in your current company. You will need to fill the transfer form 13 for each account separately to transfer from the old account into the new account with your current employer.
I got filled up Form No.10c and Form 19 and Form 3A(revised) duly filled up by the organisation. Can I know what I have to do in the next step.
Get the duly filled form verified by the company, signed and stamped by the authorised signatory of the company along with the company stamp at specified locations on the form. Then you can either request the company to deposit the form on your behalf / check with them the office where your PF is maintained and deposit it either in person / through the registered post.

You will also have to affix 2 revenue stamps on the document.
So would suggest that someone in India Print the form for you affix the stamps and then FEDEX it to you in the US so that you can fill it and send it back.
One of the resons that most forms are rejected by the PFO is the member(you) will have to sign across the revenue stamp.
This is a procedural technicality which often gets overlooked
11th June 2007 From United States, Alpharetta
The ideal solution will be to get someone in India to courier the document to you after affixing the revenue stamps.
If you look at the form it will have a space for affixing the revenue stamp, once it is affixed you will have to sign across it.

I left the company after working for 4 months.
The HR is saying that I can't settle the PF as I worked less than 6months in the company.
Is there any such restriction to settle the PF.

13th August 2008 From India, Kochi
I have recently switched over my job from private to Central govt's PSU. Earlier I was working with Airtel and Idea Cellular. Now my PF with both these private companies is lying idle. I want to withdraw this amount. Please tell me if being employed in any other company, can i withdraw this amount? Some people say yes and some says no. My point for confusion is due to one of the caluse in Form 19 which asks for declaration of non employment.
15th October 2008 From India, New Delhi
In case your ex-employer runs PF trust of their own per Govt. Regulations.
we have no choice have to get our Form 19 & 10C to be route thru them.
But, no ex-employer bother, whether their ex-employee is getting withdrawl in time or usually delays employee's withdrawl request.
In such case, what should ex-employee do ??
How RPFO could help such employees / members in getting their PF Amount ??
3rd November 2008 From India, Indore
Since some establishments serve food on premises, we
need a list of clearances related to F&B outlets also.
In addition, to it for example fire safety, we need to
know how the fire safety licence is obtained, and how often it is to be
renewed. Similarly, the MCD licence, I guess is to permit operations and
would need to be renewed annually, so what are the rules for it.
Once we have the list of clearances, we need to know how to 0btain those
clearances. Then how to renew them, and over what time period. What are the
penalties if they don't happen and finally why should the store manager and
area managers ensure these things are taken care of. How is it in their best
Help me find solutions for the above said subjects.
Thanks & Regards

I have a few questions reg the PF form 10-C. Currently, I am living in the US with my husband and while filling the PF forms, I gave my parents' address for postal communication. Also, I want to have my father as the nominee. Is it fine ( or since I am married, should I have only my husband as the nominee)?
By mistake, I filled my father's name for the column "Name of the claimant" in sec 1b of form 10-C (I read in the previous posts that we need to keep it blank or fill our name). Is it ok to let it remain or should I strike it off? Reg sec 9, it is mentioned in the form to give family particulars, specifically mentioning spouse, children. Can I give the names of my husband and parents and mention my father's name as nominee?
As I am living in the US, its difficult for me to communicate with my company and send and receive postal mails in time. Please give me advice so that nothing goes wrong. Thank you so much for your help!
