Yes PF Pension contribution cannot be claimed if the member exceeds 9.6 years of contribution period. However the scheme certificate will be issued upon resignation only and not during service. The member has the option of surrendering the scheme certificate with the new employer and continue the contribution wherein again he will get new scheme certificate with added contribution upon resignation with the new employer.
Thanks for your information.
