The EPFO has introduced Composite PF Claim Forms (Aadhaar based and Non-Aadhaar based), vide Order dated February 20, 2017, and has replaced/ withdrawn existing Claim Forms No. 19, 10C, 31, 19 (UAN), 10C (UAN) and 31 (UAN) to embark upon next phase of e-governance reforms, with a view to make its services available to its stakeholders in an efficient and transparent manner.

I want to withdraw 90% of my pf contribution as per new rule 2017 for down payment to builder for flat booking which is under construction.
I checked current composite withdrawal form in which there is mentioned "for purchase of site/flat indicate cheque to be drawn in favour of and payees address", so in this case whether i have to mention builder name and address or need to mentioned my self name and address to withdraw pf in favour.

Pls look into Serial No. 10 C in PF Composite Claim Form (Non Aadhaar). You will find your answer.
TDS is not deductible, if withdrawal amount is less than Rs.50,000/- and Form 15G/15H is not required when the PF Membership is more than 5 years.

My question is not related to TDS, my question is i am withdrawing partial pf amount for purchase of flat, and i want it for making down payment to builder.
So in this case while withdrawing pf through form 31 (now it is composit form) will cheque will issue on builder name or it is issue on member name.
Because i heard from 2017 new rule pf office will not issue partial withdrawal cheque to member in case of purchase of flat/site, inthis case cheque will issue to agency/ promotor/builder name.
Is it true.

Your query was already replied, which you didn't read it carefully.
Pls look into Serial No. 10 C in attached PF Composite Claim Form (Non Aadhaar). You will find your answer. The cheque will be issued in the Agency name.
Pls note that PF Composite Form is split in two parts. Aadhaar & NonAadhaar, which is combination of Forms 19, 10 C & 31. If you open non-aadhaar form, you will find your reply under Serial no. 10C.
Regarding TDS it was additional information for the benefit of all.
