In a company-run exempt fund, EPF Private Trust, recognised by the EPFO and which pays at least the same interest as the EPF. EPF Trust has duties and responsibilities like EPFO. EPF Private trusts are formed by firms that can manage the PF money and accounts of their workers themselves and have exemption from filing PF returns. The members of these trusts enjoy income tax and other benefits at par with EPFO subscribers. Such establishments who seeks exemptions and create EPF Private Trusts are called exempted establishment. However, the pension is payable only by the EPFO.
Your trust cannot delay your dues without loosing their exempt status if some one pushes the case of delayed payments etc.
Meet EPF Commissioner of the area under whose jurisdiction the Company falls.
3 years is a long period.
