Dear Provident Fund experts

What is the interpretation if there is a PF member id in Employee service history with Date of joining and Date of exit as the same date and there is no contribution in this PF account?

Is it considered as invalid / erroneous or considered as valid employment?

Example: PF Member if created by an employer whose PF account is maintained with government EPFO (not trust). In this case for all members PF passbook should be visible online.

Suppose there is a member id where DOJ is 31-12-2020 and DOE is also 31-12-2020 and there is no passbook generated even more than 3 months / 6 months / forever for this member id, i.e. there is no contribution.

How do future employers interpret it? Is it considered as an erroneous entry / invalid entry or considered as valid employment?

PF member ID, once created, cannot be deleted. In some cases where employers create a PF member ID by mistake for a person who did not join, I was suggested by someone that the best solution is to get DOE updated on the same date as the DOJ and ensure there is no contribution. I have done the same via a joint declaration to EPFO.

Wanted to know if this interpretation/assumption is agreed widely or even after this current or any future employer will question this service record. Since this was created by mistake, as the person did not join the company, hence he/she will have no employment-related documents of that company (relieving letter, payslip, etc.)

I was about to join a MNC and the BGC team want a reliving letter for that employment. However teleperformance says it's not feasible from them to provide the same as my ROL is induction dropout.

Kindly help me as I am stuck here.
