Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has decided to utilise electronic transfers for disbursing Provident Fund benefits.

Though it is already available, this facility has been made compulsory. From December 1, the PF benefits would be paid through the National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT)/Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS)/Core Banking Solution (CBS).

In a statement, Regional PF Commissioner I, Madurai Region, V. Vijayakumar, said that this initiative would save members the cost of collection charges levied by banks and facilitate immediate crediting of PF benefits to the members' account.

PF benefits upto Rs. 1 lakh with pension benefits, including withdrawal options upto Rs. 50,000, would be paid either through cheque or electronic mode. Any payment beyond these limits would be transferred only electronically. The EPFO has requested all the employers and employees to take note of these changes and ensure bank accounts were opened only in branches having NEFT, RTGH or CBS. Further, employers and employees have also been requested to enclose a photocopy of the first page of the bank pass book to ensure the bank account numbers were entered accurately in the system.
