We were exempted U/P 28 (7) & paying contribution to LIC since 1990 without break. In 2015, when we applied for further exemption EPFO refused by saying that as per our head office circular dated 6/2/2017, we can not grant further exception to any industry. We had no option & from February 2017onward we started paying contribution to EPFO instead of LIC, In June 2017 one of our employee expired but EPFO refused to pay 100 % claim of Rs.6 Lac to widow of member,while he was regular member of EPF since 1990 & basic salaru was 20590 till death. EPFO paid 3.75 Lac against 6 Lac maximum benefit under the scheme
What is the legal obligation on this case.

If married wife alone. incase of any child major they also ( upto 21 years female) otherwise minor means guardian i.e mother or grand parents. You have to get their identity confirmed before acting further.
