my company was depositing PF without depositing EPS contribution in Hyderabad every month . After two years it changed it name and started depositing my PF and EPS contribution in Chennai. This was not informed to me and I came to know this change from Hyderabad to Chennai after 5 years. When I went claim my PF and pension I was told to submit forms to transfer my PF from Hyderabad to Chennai which was done by me. I faced following losses as a result of the above.
1. Interest losses of accumulated account in Hyderabad for 2 years since PF office stops interest payment after 3 years and also perpetual loss of interest on interest amount for those 2 years.
2. While calculating pension upon retirement PF office has not considered the 2 years for which my pension contribution was not deposited by my employer as a result of which I am getting less pension than what I should be getting.
After one joins a company it is the responsibility of company to pay/deposit PF and EPS amounts under the Act and rules and it is the PF office to ensure compliance.
I would like to know whether I can claim my loss from my employer or PF office and if so the procedure and relevant rule under which I can do so. Kindly advise me please.
