Dear all – I have an issue related to my PF transfer. The story goes like this:
In march last year i shifted from Noida to Pune. My new employer in Pune submitted application to EPFO Pune in July 2011 to transfer my PF amount in Noida PF a/c to my new Pune PF a/c. My problem is that till date this transfer from Noida EPFO to Pune EPFO has not happened and I am very much worried about my hard earned money. By taking contact numbers from EPFO website, I am calling Pune and Noida PF offices enquiring about this transfer but as usual these good for nothing “Sarkaari Babus” are not providing anything concrete. I had raised grievance on EPF website but Pune EPFO closed it saying “Transfer has been called from Noida RPFC vide dispatch no. 616 dated 05/12/11”.
Now when I call Pune EPFO and mention this comment they say check with Noida office …Huh…I am really fed up. Is this my duty to keep following between 2 EPFOs? Disgusting…..
What do you suggest I should do? Now I feel I should have better withdrew my amount from Noida a/c ( though after paying usual bribe ).
My employer has shared the acknowledgement letter from EPFO Pune regarding request for transfer of my ( and 70 other colleagues ) PF from Noida to Pune, and they say thats all we can do, now you will need to get in touch with EPF office for any further queries.
However, yesterday I have raised another grievance on EPF website for Noida EPFO. Let’s see what they come back with.
Does it really take this long? Should I calm down and relax as this is normal and the transfer will happen in due course of time? Another thing to consider is this transfer request is not mine alone, the letter shows a list of 74 transfers requested by my employer. Anyways I am very frustrated with this system and department.
Thanks and Regards,
