Dear All,
We filed ECR on new unified portal of EPFO. But at the time of making payment site error occurred due to which TRRN status is now changed to "Awaiting payment response from Bank". So now we can't pay PF at all. What to do now???? Please help!!
13th January 2017 From India, Pune
if we make delay of more than 4 minutes after login in bank portal it happens, leave it as it is , in few hours it would get available again for payment
13th January 2017
Dear colleagues,
As such there is Login issue and EPF site is under maintenance also these days..
You may encounter problems like data omission/ deletion and various other problems. Suggest you should try after 21st January.

Thank you for your response. We tried to make payment on 5th Jan; so it has been more than 10 days. Is there any way we can raise ticket or file compliant with technical support etc?

On a related note, is there any way to make offline payment if online payment is failing? We are trying since 1 week to make payment through our ICICI Bank Corporate account. There appears to be some problem with ICICI Bank new Corporate Internet Banking website, so after successful payment we are getting an error page instead of being redirected to the new EPFO website for payment confirmation. The amount is getting deducted from our bank account, but the EPFO website is at first showing it as awaiting payment but after about 2 days is is saying payment failed. The amount got credited back to our account after 3 days,and when we tried to make the payment again, the same thing happened. We are still awating for the refund credit on this failed payment. Today when I tried for the 3rd time, there was some java error, on the ICICI site, so payment failed again and it is still showing Awaiting Payment (so there is no option to try paying online now as the "Pay" button is removed during this status).

A similar error was received when I tried to make to ESI payment but luckily after 2 days the ESI site showed it as payment received (under Double Verification).

I am curious if anyone else with ICICI Bank (corporate account) or other bank has had a similar issue.

Also I would like to know if there is an option for offline payment of EPF dues. Please advise.

Note: 1. We have already reported this issue to the bank and tried to escalate it, to resolve any issues on their end.

2. Fortunately the PF payment due date has been extended to 20th this month, so we still have a few days time.

We are waiting for last 15 days for the status to change. No change as of yet. Can we file new ECR and leave the earlier as it is?
18th January 2017 From India, Pune
go to the link and check your TRRN status, where it is stuck, mostly it is stuck at the client bank portal, if it is found in status then call your banker to release the same

I am facing the same problem of "Awaiting Payment" status since last two days after i tried to pay through Bank of Baroda net banking. Due to some reason the when i was redirected to the bank website from ECR page for payment , the net banking login did not happen and hence i had to close the window. When i went back to the unified portal for retrying i could see the status as "awaiting payment" and it just wont refresh. Why do these government agencies deploy applications without testing them properly. Moreover there is no helpline to escalate this issue as well.Any help on this regard would be highly appreciated, Thanks!

I too was stuck with the bug and had to go beyond the extended limit. I had emailed twice to EPF technical portal but no responce til date. Typical govt portals.
but dont worry.....I have succeeded.....and you to will
Jes click on the TRRN no shown against "awaiting payment confirmation". A new page will popup. select the bank and proceed ahead for netbanking or debit card payment. do it correctly till you get the successful payment confirmation from both Bank and EPF . take screenshot of both successful confirmation messages. now click on "Home" hyperlink shown below "Transaction successful" message from EPF. A new page will popup for you to search for the TRRN. Fill the correct TRRN and codec. You will get the TRRN details.
Hope u succeed and all the best

Dear Friends
EPFO has rectified many website issues... but it needs to do more.
Regarding the "Payment Awaiting Confirmation" problem just follow the given instructions. LOGIN, Click "Payment", Click ECR/Return Filing", Click "View Locked Challan".
Select the TRRN to Unlock. TRRN will be available after 1 hour of initiation of payment attempt. For any other actionable challans- Select the respective Links and proceed forward. Well this was not simplified few months ago.......especially with Govt Schemes "PMRPY" link with EPFO. To be on a safer side it is better to do the payment within the first week of the month. People responsible for maintaining the Govt websites are difficult to get when needed the most.

Hi All
I am suffering same issue in every month can you please give me a permanent solution on to this.
14th August 2018 From India, Tirumala - Tirupati
Do not worry for.. Payment Awaiting problems...
Click on PAYMENTS/ ECR RETURN FILLING
Now U will see many options... so see which one applies to you...most of them time it will be inside (1) View Locked Challans or (2) inside "Actionable ECR Challans". So if its is inside Locked Challan...then you need to Unlock it. If it's under Actionable ECR challan (though rare) than click on the relevant links. Your challan will be ready for re payment within or after 1 hour. just c that your internet connection is good and its not a Bank holiday. Slow internet very often creates problem and which you will not be able to solve or proceed ahead if it's a bank holiday. At times it may be to do with Bank....when even bank network is Bad....where such Payment related issues arrive. But whatever the problem may be....there's always a solution and you need to have a cool head. My best advice would be don't wait for the last minute. Do within 1st 10th of every month. After all Govt Websites are too lousy (though there's vast improvement) and very often errors are not rectified and often your calls would not be answered.
