The Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has put account details availability online from July 1. This means you can know how much amount has been deposited in your Provident Fund account online.
The EPF department has started an EPFO web portal website to provide this facility. In initial phase this facility has been started for Delhi (North), Delhi (South), Laxmi Nagar (Delhi), Gurgaon, Faridabad, Karnal and Bangalore. Within next one week, 120 more cities will be covered under this service.
According to Central Provident Fund Commissioner Shri Samrendra Chatterjee while earlier the employees had to go to EPFO office to get information about their account, now they will receive the information online through newly launched web portal where one would have to submit just a mobile number and account number to get the details of his/her account. The detail would be delivered on mobile number through SMS.
