Important news for EPFO subscribers. The organization has changed a rule, which can be difficult for the employed. Actually, the organization has made it necessary to link the Universal Account Number (UAN) of the PF account with the Aadhaar card. For this, EPFO has made changes in section 142 of the Social Security Code 2020. This has changed the Electronic Challan cum Return (ECR) filing protocol.
EPFO said in its recent tweet that after June 1, 2021, the employer will be able to file ECR of the same employee whose UAN will be linked to Aadhaar. Those whose Aadhaar is not updated, their ECR will be filled separately. He can later link the employee’s UAN with Aadhaar. But everyone has to do it as soon as possible.
How Will Aadhar Update
It is the responsibility of the company management to update the Aadhaar of the employee. EPFO has given notification about this many times. If Aadhaar is not linked, the employee will see the same amount in the PF account, which comes from his salary and dearness allowance.
