Dear friends, i have worked in my previous organization for 6 years. i resigned on Apil 2015 and joined the new firm from July 2015 after serving the 3 months notice period. i want to withdraw my PF for immediate want of funds. however, the new firm is saying they can not open a new PF account as i already have a PF account. So in this case if my existing firm continues with using my old PF account will i be able to withdraw funds from it. i need those funds desperately so need your advise on how to go about it? can i opt out of PF completely? please let me know.
