Yes you are right why should employer pay Interest on delayed payment without his fault? In many cases Instead of 100 reminder / request few employees are not ready to link their Aadhar and as an employer we don't have any right to do same. It is only employee who can link Aadhar to UAN. Also in case of Female employee who got married and have changed Name it is not possible to update same through online. It required Physical Joint Declaration which is not possible due to Work From Home environment plus PF department also working with 50% staff and they are also not able to process request on given time.
