Check EPF balance online with the click of a mouse
The e-passbook facility would do away with the time consuming process of applying for withdrawals besides improving efficiency and providing greater transparency.

THE EMPLOYEES' Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), India has introduced a new and great facility of e-Passbook to Provident Fund (PF) members through Member Portal on EPFO website, which will help the EPFO subscribers get their account statements online.

This e-Passbook would be just like passbook of a bank account. It will also have additional information like name, date of birth and account number. EPFO had recently started the Electronic Challan cum Return (ECR) facility for employers for promoting a prompt and transparent service.

Now, EPF members will be able to directly approach the EPFO website and obtain e-Passbook after entering the following details:

• Establishment registration number (PF Code Number)

• Extension Code (if any)

• Employee PF Number and

• Name as per PF account slip

The e-Passbook will be available, subject to reconciliation of payments with the returns filed by companies. This e-Passbook facility is available only to active members. However, it won't be available to:

• Employees whose PF claims have been settled

• Employees whose accounts have become inoperative.

• Employees who belong to Exempted Establishments which run their own PF trust

Welcoming the initiative, HR Advisors believe e-Passbook facility will lead to greater transparency. It will help the companies and employees in ascertaining that proper amounts are being credited to employee PF accounts. Over 55 million subscribers of the retirement fund body Employees' Provident Fund Organisation will benefit from this facility.
