Greetings of the day,
A new facility has been added in the login of all employers to declare their Contractors (registered with EPFO) and the period of contract so that they as Principal employers, may through their login view & monitor the compliance in respect of their contract employees reported in ECR by their contractors. With this facility, Principal Employers can view the amount of wages on which the EPF dues have been remitted by the contractor as compared to the wages and EPF employer’s share paid to contractor under the contract. Now Principal Employers through this facility can also view such benefits claimed from Central Govt. by their contractors (benefit schemes of PMRPY and ABRY) in respect of their contract employees & regulate their payments to contractor accordingly.
This application is an online facility available on the website of EPFO for the Principal Employers and also facilitates the Employers to upload work orders/outsourced job contracts/contract workers related information directly with a motive to provide effective e-governance system in the compliance set up and enhance the coverage to extend provident fund benefits to eligible employees. It is mandatory for all the Employers having contractors that they start updating their contractor/principal employer details on the portal immediately.
Thanks & Regards,
Sumit Kumar Saxena
