One of our employee (who is a contributing member of EPF for almost 8 yrs) whose DOB according to EPF A/C is 03/09/1981 but DOB according to Aadhar and PAN is 01/09/1980. Due to mismatch of DOB he cannot linked Aadhar in his A/C. Now he is trying to Change the DOB of EPF A/C according to Aadhar. Although we the employer had approve twice for the change but its rejected from field office in both cases. When I personally talk with the EPF dept they replied that as the difference between the DOB is more than 1 yrs, so it is not possible to approve it without valid documents.
I would like to mention here that the employee has not any valid (i.e.-Birth Certificate and Board Certificate) documents of DOB. For this reason he is also facing difficulty to change his DOB in Aadhar according to EPF A/C. Now he is asking us to close his current EPF A/C and open new A/C according to Aadhar data. But in that cases he will lose his seniority as EPF member and can affect his retirement life too. So can you suggest me what to do so that he can overcome the problem? 31st May 2018 From India, Durgapur
