You may approach HR Dept. of your former employers and request them to help in the matter. PF withdrawal is made online now. Please go through the informative article published in The Indian Express dt. 28 May 2013 regarding PF withdrawal, attached with this thread.
You may approach PF local office for any support. If the employer is reluctant to sign the PF withdrawal form, you may get it attested by any gazetted officer of state or central rank and submit it to PF office for further action.
