EPFO News: Users are facing many problems on the EPFO portal. While some users are not able to login on it, some are not able to file e-nomination (EPFO e-nomination). EPFO officials say that this has happened due to more users visiting the portal simultaneously.
Now EPFO has ended the deadline for e-nomination in view of the problems of the users. Earlier it was 31st December 2021. Now pensioners associated with EPFO will be able to register for e-nomination anytime. There is a problem on the EPFO portal for the last one month.
Problem with too many users on the portal
EPFO officials told The Indian Express that there has been a sudden increase in traffic on the EPFO portal after making the e-nomination process mandatory for EPF users. Due to this there is a problem in login, completion of e-nomination and e-sign. In view of these problems of the users, now no date has been kept for e-nomination. Earlier, December 31 was the last date for this. It has now been removed.
complaint on social media
Many people have shared on social media the problems being faced by the EPFO portal. One user has written that he is having trouble doing e-nomination for two months. At the same time, another person wrote that he is not able to access his passbook.
It is worth noting that recently, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has made e-nomination mandatory for account holders. Account holders will not be able to view PF passbook without e-nomination. Now e-nomination is mandatory to view PF account balance. Till now the account holders could easily view the PF balance and passbook by visiting the website of Employees’ Provident Fund Organization even without e-nomination.
