As you mentioned you submit above said documents in PF office along with Joint declaration. In such case you would have office copy along with stamp from the PF office as well. If you have these documents than you may file a complaint online on epfindia website (URL http://epfigms.gov.in) and submit scanned copy of your submitted documents.
By doing so, you would get a clear answer from the PF department for the rejection of your correction request and further action required for the correction in details.

We have tried all the possibility. We have sent all the documents through Registered post and received Acknowledge card stamped with EPFO Seal. It is delayed by Salem PF office employee.
In my experience during my name submitted through online portal as per aadhaar, which was not approved by my existing concern. I made plenty of complaints through EPF Grievance Management System. I did not get proper solution through that. I was waiting for 5 months for PF and Pension withdrawal.
Then I made complaint to Delhi EPFO. Then I received my amount.

To file an RTI application an individual will need to follow the steps mentioned below:
How to file a RTI application for EPFO?
The right of every individual to get relevant information from any government office is called the Right to Information or RTI. In a matter of 30 days, you will receive a response from the government about your query. The Right to Information also has the information an individual may require from the EPFO as well, making it compulsory for even the EPFO to respond to the RTI application, and provide the individual with the information they require. To file an RTI application an individual will need to follow the steps mentioned below:
Fill out an RTI application with regard to your problem. The application must be in the below format:
The subject must be clearly defined. For example: Application to seek information under the Right to Information Act 2005.
The application must be addressed to the Central Public Information Officer, EPFO and must also have the complete PF office address mentioned.
You should also ensure to include all your details such as your complete name as per records, your complete address with your phone number, email address and your EPF account number.
After providing all the above details, you can ask the questions related to your EPF withdrawal and transfer.
A declaration also must be made in the format mentioned below
“I do hereby declare that I am a citizen of India. All the information provided above is correct according to my knowledge. I request you to ensure that the requested information is provided before 30 day period after you have received the application”
After declaration, you can provide the details of the demand draft or postal order that you have made towards a payment of the RTI application. The details will need to include the postal order number or the demand draft number, the date on which it was issued, and the details of the post office or bank for where they were drafted.
The application must be signed and must clearly mention your Name, Place where you residing and Date. Example, the Rajesh, Chennai dt. 20/10/2018.
You will now send this application to the concerned authority via Registered or Speed Post only and ensure that you keep the challan of the registered post safely for future use. The concerned authority should receive your application in a matter 4-5 days and you will receive a reply within 30 days.
Get a Demand Draft made for an amount of Rs. 10 or 50 (this amount can vary check at Salem office) in favor of the Account Officer, O/o the Regional Commissioner, Salem.
Another option is to make a postal order from the post office as this is more economical than a demand draft. The cost of making a demand draft can range > Rs. 30/50, whereas a postal order costs less.
Can this process be done online?
Anyone who would like to avoid the hassles of obtaining a post order or a demand draft, and filling out the application themselves, can apply through the RTI application online. You will need to download an application which is available on the RTI website or REPF Commissioner's , and it will help you by filling out the application on your behalf, after which you can print, sign and send it to the concerned office directly without the hassle of a postal order or a demand draft, which they will do on your behalf and attach the same and send it to the concerned office.
As soon as reply is received you may decide the next course of action, if legal notice is necessary you should claim interest and damages for the delayed transfer and for costs incurred in follow up, legal expenses & for mental agony suffered. There can be case registered for non action & delay in the respective Consumer court as well. Consult an advocate for adv. action.

I couldn't understand what necessitated the correction of name in UAN based on Aadhaar. I believe Aadhaar details are based on some authentic docs. such as SSLC, birth certificate which are basic docs.for anybody born after 1980 or so. If info. as per SSLC is taken as correct how Aadhaar can show a diff.info as I understood when Aadhaar is based on SSLC how UAN info can go wrong? I remember there was a SC judgment prohibiting employer/employees seeking corrections midway after serving many years in DoB in service records which are normally based on SSLC and after proper declaration by the employee concerned when they join duty. In your case what prompted such corrections I couldn't surmise. Anyhow go thru' the process already in motion.

Greetings for the day,
There have been multiple cases where an EPF (employees’ provident fund) subscriber’s UAN details do not match the Aadhaar, causing inconvenience. The EPF UAN details can easily be corrected online using the statutory body’s unified portal.
(Note that linking Aadhaar with UAN is still mandatory and having the details match on both the portals is important for the same.)
Offline ways (mentioned below) to correct the EPF details involve calling up the UAN helpdesk or approaching the HR department at your workplace. The two methods have problems of their own. While running after the HR to get the changes done could take its time, there have been several complaints of the UAN helpdesk not functioning.
The online method is relatively easier and reliable to get it done faster. You can follow the below steps to do it yourself.
Log on to EPFO’s unified portal. Note that you will have to be registered with the portal to make any changes. If you haven’t registered yet, just click on “Activate UAN” option on the right (below) on the same page, which will show up under “Important Links.”
Once logged in, click on “Manage” and select “modify basic details.” Please note that if you have already linked your Aadhaar with the UAN, basic personal details cannot be changed on the UAN profile. You will have to get it changed on your Aadhaar, which requires visiting your nearest Aadhaar Enrolment centre (if your mobile number is not registered) or you can also do it online on UIDAI’s official website.
On the modification page, enter your Aadhaar number in the slot provided. Additionally, you will have to enter details like name, gender and date of birth as per your Aadhaar. Click on “update details.”
You will now be able to view “pending requests” on the UAN portal. You will see that your employer is required to verify the profile changes made by you. In case you have wrongly entered any details, there is an option to “delete request” and you can re-enter and reapply for the change. Note that the deletion can only be made before the employer accepts the request.
Your employer will receive the request on the Employer side of the Unified portal interface. They can access it by checking the “Member>Details Change Request.” Only after the request is accepted from the employer’s side, the request will be sent to the Dealing Hand, of concerned EPFO office. Your employer will be able to view the status of the request.
On verification from the dealing hand, the request will be pushed to the Section Supervisor, which will then move to APFC/RPFC. Each of the authorities will add their appropriate remarks next to the request regarding their acceptance or rejection. The final approval or rejection rests in the hands of the APFC/RPFC.
Once your Aadhaar is verified and your employer has accepted the request, you will get a popup saying “Aadhaar is already verified. Your details aren’t editable.” While this means that your Aadhaar is now linked to the UAN, basic details cannot be changed.
Please note: As mentioned before, the basic details on Aadhaar will be reflected on your UAN. For any changes, you will first have to get your Aadhaar details corrected. You can do so online, if your Aadhaar is linked to a registered mobile number, using OTP.
Q-How to change UAN details offline?
A- In case you wish to do it offline, download this form. It is a joint declaration form enclosed herewith that needs to be filled up by you and your employer and should be submitted at your registered EPF office (your employer can provide you with the details of the branch office.
Along with this form, you have to submit the copy of identity proof which has a correct name. Identity proof can be any of these documents.
Voters Identity Card
ESIC Identity Card
Bank passbook copy/Post Ofﬁce Passbook.
Any school/education certiﬁcateCertiﬁcate issued by Registrar of Birth & Death.
Certiﬁcate based on the service records of the Central/State Government Organization.
Copy of electricity/water/telephone bill in the name of the claimant.
Letter from a recognized public authority or public servant verifying the identity and residence of the member to the satisfaction of the competent authority.
Thanks & Regards,
Sumit Kumar Saxena
