I'm trying to transfer PF from my old employer to my current employer. My claim request got rejected stating EPS DOJ-18/11/19 & DOL-30/06/2021, WHEREAS EPS CONTRIBUTIONS NOT REMITTED. CLARIFY THROUGH EMPLOYER. I also raised a grievance request and still got the same response.

At the time of joining my basic salary was more than 15,000Rs so the entire employer contribution went to my PF account and pension contributions were 0. I don't understand why EPFO rejected the claim stating eps contributions are not permitted.

Could you please let me know what are the next steps to be taken to resolve this issue?

There is a circular from EPFO No. Actuarial/18(2)2008/Vo.III/7738 dated 29.08.2014 wherein at point no.8 it is clearly mentioned that As EPS will henceforth apply only to EPF members whose salary pay at the time of becoming PF member is not more than 15,000/-.......................................
Unfortunately many organization including Regional PF office employees are not aware about the circular. Earlier many organizations had been deposited EPS contribution though the employees were not eligible. Now at EPFO system will not allow to deposit the same.

You better take a copy of the circular which I have posted 2/3 times at Citehr or from EPFO site and put your logic for not paying EPS contribution. If you were earlier member of EPS before joining your last organization, you will be required to continue EPS membership. Only for first time employment or you were earlier member of EPFO and withdraw your deposited amount from PF & EPS (if less than 10 years of service) and your salary is more than 15,000/- at the time of joining, then you are not the member of EPS.
