amitsharmaThanks Hema for the reply but there are certain grounds which i want to know about, please help me out thru it, they are:
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
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.
Sadashiv RaoHi Amit,
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.
a. Can a downloaded copy be used or it has to be
some "Government" issued copy?
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.
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??
Thanks - Jayant
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.
