    A very very bad move of not keeping track of almost anything! your employees can sue you royally for not having the details of their PF! Trust me, EPFO will take these complaints seriously 🙂

    Since you have no track, first of check if you had a EPF establishment registered at all. If yes, try to check the name of the establishment and along with all documents meet the EPFO office where you kept your establishment registered.

    another way of tracking the EPFO would be using any one of the employees PF account number . generally they are framed in below nomenclature :

    state / city / Establishment code / Extension of establishment code / Account number

    Establishment code should be of Maximum 7 Digits, No leading or trailing zeros
    Extension of establishment code is not mandatory.
    Account number – Maximum 7 digits

    Check if above helps you. If not, you are left with the only option of going to EPFO office with all necessary proofs to get the details hunt for you.

    Good luck!
