As we all are aware that EPFO introduced online ECR filing from the year 2010. All the employers have to update their member employees details accordingly so that their employees can receive the benefit of online settlement hassle-free.
However, there are situations where certain employers provided their member employees details incorrectly due to which such employees cannot fulfil their KYC update promptly.
To enable the employers, correct those errors, EPFO (web circular sr.no.217 dated 12 Feb 2021), has listed certain documents that employers jointly with their employees has to provide and rectify those details.
EPFO further guides through this circular as to which are the documents to be provided either online or offline to correct such errors.
If there are 2 or more field corrections, or complete member name corrections and/or his/her father’s name corrections, then, the request of joint declaration should be submitted manually to the EPF field office directly across the counter.
If there are only spelling corrections, expansion of initials in member’s name, and change in date of birth, then, it can be submitted online with documentary proof.
For more details, please refer the circular attached here below.
