Can anybody please let me know if a US registered company having its branch office in India need to register under EPFO? I mean, does the India branch office falls under the PF act?

But, this company was not registered in India. It's just a branch of US office.

Dear Cybersoftech,
According to the Companies Act,2013, any Company or body corporate registered outside India which has a place of business in India whether by itself or through any agency, physically or by electronic medium and conducts any business activity in India is a foreign company.
The Company should ensure compliance of applicable labor laws in respect of the employees employed in such branches.
Therefore, an emphatic " Yes" is the simple answer to your query.
