Further what about the Pension Will I Get It After 3 Years Retrospectively Without hassels.

Looking for Valuable suggestions in this regard.

This is with reference to your query, please note...
You can apply for PF withdrawal after three years. But, along with submission documents you need to produced one declaration certificate, stating that during the period you was not employee in any organisation, neither the part of EPF membership.
And, about your EPS [Pension] query...
You will be eligible for EPS benefits from 1st Oct'2014 and the unpaid amount of your pension you will be paid as arrears.
But Sir, my personal suggestion is to you, don't wait for three years, please withdraw your PF and start availing pension benefits.
For more information or any further assistance you can call me on below given no.
