The Employees Provident Fund Organisation has extended the deadline for pensioners and scheme subscribers to submit their Aadhaar card details to March 31. The EPFO has about 50 lakh pensioners and around 4 crore subscribers that avail of its scheme. “We had given time until February 28 and now it has been extended to March 31. We are requesting everybody to furnish the Aadhaar number,” V P Joy, central provident fund commissioner, EPFO, told the Times of India, adding that the submission of Aadhaar card was made mandatory to ensure complete transparency. The organisation recently undertook a complete revamp, with a focus on digital documentation.

In its January notification, the labour ministry had said that it would be mandatory for members and pensioners of the Employees Pension Scheme to furnish proof of possession of the Aadhaar number or undergo Aadhaar authentication according to the procedure laid down by the EPFO.

    EPFO ask every retiree to open an individual SB account to credit the proceeds of EPF1995 Pension amount. The amount is credited digitally. Can they not link the account ppo and aadhar card.? Why retired persons should come in person and carry out this?

      Many pensioners have given their life certificate prior to the demonetisation act in their pension receiving banks. And the banks have the details of Aadhar card details also. Why don't the EPFO organisation cull out the details and request only such of those seniors whose details are not available instead of asking every person to come.

          EPFOP asks member to upload aadhaar, but if you go to upload aadhaar on the web site, it gives you error. I sent email to EPFP, and got reply that their system to up-load aadhaar is not working. Noe here, EPFO has extended deadline, as if EPFO is doing any favor to public. This entire dept. is run by s and anti-nationals, who have no interest in serving the people of India. The interest they have is in making money by bribe. These s can't even get an IT system up and running. there are lot of retirees, who are breaking their head for uploading their Adhaar and then withdraw the money, but to no avail. They make new rule, not to help people honestly, but to earn more in bribe - this is way new rules are IT systems work only when bribe is paid or the system is always down.

                    Whatever you said is 100% correct. EPFO has no interest at all to see that proper service is rendered to pensioners/subscribers. I was not able to down load the e p book with updated entries for the last 1 year. Every time the site says that the entries are to be updated. But by whom?

                      It was a time where anybody approaching the government office for a pension or any other payment of that type, even though presenting himself live, had to produce a certificate to show he is alive from a Gazetted Officer, any other court authority who was crystal clear in his nature/atude. Be happy now you have to produce only adhar card. It could be just for a control. A few months back, there was a news in paper of a person drawing govt. ry from 2 establishments at the same time. Hence be happy, nobody is eating up your share of money.
