Post demonetization, various Government agencies including Labour, EPF etc. have urged employers to pay salary of employees only in their bank accounts. To intimate employers about this, the PF department has sent them SMS. This approach should be followed even for contract and casual workers. The emerging scenario may keep the employers busy in terms of collecting the bank account number, Aadhaar card details, UAN like credentials from all employees.

Dear Sir, in my company, nearly 10 watchmans (casual workers) are working, they are not working continuously, no one reached minimum six months in my company. They are easily joining and leaving the job without intimation within 6 months. So we are providing salary to them by hand. They are from other state. if we are going to open the bank account to them, bank will ask employers recommendation letter. Even if we are open bank account to them, they will leave the job within six months without intimation. May I know how is it possible to open bank account to them. Kindly clarify. Regards Thirumurugan.

You don't have to do anything.

There is the well known Jan dhan scheme

Under that, bank is required to open a Jan dhan account in the bank based only on one of the 6 government issued ID cards. from my personal experience every one has one of those. Because you can't even travel by train now a days without these (Aadhar, voter ID, pan, driving lic, mgeagra, passport, etc)

If they have address proof with them, they get full access normal bank account, otherwise there is some limitation in the account for the first 6 months (You can't have more than R50,000 in the accounts, and few other nominal restrictions to prevent money laundering)

If the bank refuses, there is a special cell on PMO website to cater to the complains on it (I used it once, they are super active and highly responsive). Plus, you can complain to local district magistrate or collector.

About 18 crore such accounts have been opened before demonetisation. And I hear about 15000 such accounts have abeen openeded daily by SBI alone since then.

So encourage your staff to go to the nearest PSU bank and get the account. They alone are responsible, not you, for any thing that goes wrong with it, as you are not introducing the account holder.
