Sir/Madam,
I am Venu Manohar, Persuing MBA(HR) 2nd year.
Q:Why the brother should not be a nominee in PF. while all others can be nominated other than brother?

It is not that apart from brother all other family members can be nominated.
Pls find below the definition of family as per para 2 (g) of the Employees Provident Fund Scheme 1952. All family members who fall within the purview of this definition can be nominated.
The same is considered in Form 2 (Nomination /Declaration From)
familyĒ meansó
(i) in the case of a male member, his wife, his children, whether married or unmarried, his dependant parents and his deceased sonís widow and children:
Provided that if a member proves that his wife has ceased, under the personal law governing him or the customary law of the community to which the spouses belong, to be entitled to maintenance she shall no longer be deemed to be a part of the memberís family for the purpose of this Scheme, unless the member subsequently intimates by express notice in writing to the Commissioner that she shall continue to be so regarded; and
(ii) in the case of a female member, her husband, her children, whether married or unmarried, her dependant parents, her husbandís dependant parents and her deceased sonís widow and children:
Provided that if a member by notice in writing to the Commissioner expresses her desire to exclude her husband from the family, the husband and his dependent parents shall no longer be deemed to be a part of the memberís family for the purpose of this Scheme, unless the member subsequently cancels in writing any such notice.

As per PF act nominee can be only one or more 'family' member. And 'brother' is not in the list of family member; that's why.
