firstname.lastname@example.orgYou must pay the notice period in lieu wages to the employer so that at least outstanding dues are not there against you. After that send by registered letter to the employer the PF form for withdrawal of dues. If after waiting for a week the employer does not sign, then send a letter to the EPF authorities to get it signed from employer and then process for withdrawal of PF dues. If that also does not materialize then put up.

no issues if you have not paid the notice period, just download and fill up the pf form and get it sign by any gazetted officer and submit it in the pf office. but you must know the pf number of yours. it is always written on your salary slip.
if you don't have pf number please go to labour court as no company has rights to not allowing you to withdraw your pf.

nathraoPF cannot be withheld or adjusted against other dues by employer.
Employer can delay but not stop you from getting your PF in full.
But it is another thing that you left without notice and did not uphold your side of the contract which normally will be either giving notice or buying notice period.
Uphold your side of the contract fairly and move on with new job.

You can directly submit the withdrawal form to the regional PF office. But Before accepting your direct application EPFO want to make sure that the right person is applying for PF. Therefore You have to attest your application form by any of these authorities.
Manager of a bank.
By any gazetted officer.
Member of the Central Board of Trustees./ committee/ Regional Committee (Employees’ Provident Fund Organization).
Magistrate/ Post/ Sub Post Master/ President of Village Panchayat/ Notary Public
As you can see, the list is long, who can attest the withdrawal form. But in practice attestation by the bank manager is preferable. Also Manager should be from the branch, where you maintain an account.
*Note that you have to take signature and stamp in every page of the application. Since this is bypass route, EPFO does not encourage this process. Also, there is more chance of fraud as well. Hence It asks for a letter which should state the reason of direct application for EPF withdrawal. It is advisable to attach evidence, if any, of non coöperation by the employer. This will give weight to your application.
*Try to correspond in writing with your employer, so that you have some evidence of non-cooperation Attach an indemnity bond (affidavit) in a 100 rupee stamp paper. Although it is not mandatory according to rules. But you should not take any chance. Also attach service proof.
Hence, you should attach copies of payslip, ID card, from a 16 or appointment letter from employer to substantiate.
Also attach copy of your identity proof as well as Address proof.
Other Points To Note For EPF Withdrawal Without Employer Signature:
If the bank account number would be same as with the EPF record then it will help. Try to give your salary account of the previous job. Also If the attesting bank manager will be from the branch of your salary account branch then it would be better.
PSU bank manager carries more weight.

vkshukla15Hi In case terms of appointment are not expressed, the question to serve the notice pay or pay in lieu of notice period does not arise.

AnindyoTo begin with, if you are employed, you can't withdraw your PF, you can only transfer it. If your employer isn't signing the form for PF release please lodge a complaint at Home Page and they will take care of the rest. However please ensure that you fulfill all necessary formalities on your end.
