Hi, my previous employer is asking for adhar card when I requested to settle my PF claim. I had joined organisation in Apr 2011 and left in June. Is adhar card mandatory? If not what action should I take?

Till date EPFO has not given any notification where it has written that for submitting FORM 19 & 10 C Aadhaar card is mandatory. Ask your employer to show any notification pertaining to their reason for asking Aadhaar. If you are employed in another organization till date then it is advisable to Submit Form 13 to your present employer to transfer your EPF & EPS amount.
With Regards,

Dear Friends,
As Mr. Ramnarayan has cited, even though the EPF issued a circular on 21.01.2013 insisisting aadhar number for settlements w.e.f 01.03.2013; it is kept abeyance vide above circular dated 06.02.2013.
Hence aadhar number is not mandatory for PF settlements as on now.

i agree with all my friends and also as per notifications attached,
below is just to highlight which is already stated above get your PF transferred by way of Form 13 if you are working with any other employer instead of talking the money

At present to settle your PF claim, Aadhaar is not mandatory.

This is the way our Department Functions.
AADHAR Was not started in whole of India only few States at Initial Period now have extended enrollment in other states as well, keeping in view of this, it was obsolute absurd on part of EPFO to seek AADHAR Cards that to on a mandatory basis, by the time they reaslised this notification was gone.
But aftersome time they have kept this at abeyance, so bottom line is that Submission of AADHAR Card is not mandatory but those who has this have to submit at thier employers during joining/leaving or settlements...

Aadhar card applicability for settlement of PF is not yet mandatory. It is only a ploy for bringing more and more people under Aadhar Card, so that Govt. policies can be formulated on this basis.

Dear Bshnprsd
First of all check with your ex-employer the objective behind asking your Aadhar card, as on today this is not linked wit EPF. Better convince your previous employer's executive (he / she might not be aware of) about the latest circular which deferred linking Aadhar with PF.
Secondly you can transfer your previous Pf balance to current PF account easily by filling Form-13 and with the help of your current employer. Transfer would be appropriate than withdrawal, but choice is yours.

This is very surprising that company is asking for Adhar Card. I never heard it before and even it is implemented in some States only per my knowledge. Hence, it is not mandatory. Ask them for any alternative.

EPFO is in the process of collecting Aadhaar details in respect of its pensioners. It is therefore, requested to submit legible photocopies of AADHAAR letter issued by UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), first page of PPO and pass book of bank account where pension is being remitted (containing bank account number and IFSC code) in respect of all the beneficiaries. The copies may be submitted directly to EPF office or the pension paying bank branch. The PPO number should be mentioned on the photocopies of both AADHAAR letter and pass book.
One thing keep in mind as of now it is not required to submit the AADHAAR copy for PF Settlement.
But it is must that for all existing employees to submit their AADHAAR copy on or before 01/06/2013 and for the new joinees at the time of joining.
