All employers of covered establishments under EPF can now file Electronic Challan cum Return (ECR) from April 2012 and can dispense with filing physical returns in Form 5, 10, 12A, 3A, and 6A.
Exempted establishments need not also file returns in Forms 3PS, 4PS, 5PS, 6PS, 7PS and 8PS.
A copy of notification by EPFO is attached for information of all organisations and must take a note to the action required by the establishments to start with the new system.

Dear Mangesh,
Download the 'E-Return Tool for Employer' program from the EPF website. Upload the data for your establishment & generate the ECR Return Form in txt format. Then upload the txt file on website under E-sewa link.
Challan can be generated then online like ESIC.
