EPFO has taken a revolutionary step in year 2012 by launching its EMPLOYER E- SEVA portal which benefited the employer by way in reducing the hassles of submitting the paper return to EPFO office. The EPFO announced an online withdrawal and transfer provision for employee’s provident fund (EPF) from 1 July 2013, with the aim to settle claims faster. Online submission of monthly return by employer – From July 2012 onwards ECR (electronic challan cum return) are submitted online which solve the purpose of both the challan as well as the return. Submission of hard copy of return to EPF department is no more required. Last date of uploading the ECR files is 15th (plus 5 days of grace period i.e. 20th) from the closer of the month.

Now the requirement of Submitting form 5, form 10 etc. for informing the department regarding new joiner and employees who has left is not required these information are now indulged in ECR (electronic challan cum return) file. This has made the online process more simple and transparent. Transfer of Pf account from one employer to another is no more a tedious task now , employee just has to login at epf website (http://memberclaims.epfoservices.in/) and lodge his request for transfer of account to other employer .
