I held an EPF account while working with an IT company in New Delhi. After I left their employment, I put in an request to get the money transferred to my then current employer through a EPF consultant. However, the EPF consultant stopped coming to my office and I also did not receive from EPF office., so I assumed that he never submitted the transfer form.
Later I a put in an request to withdraw the money. This request was rejected, but I never got a rejection letter. Later, when EPF online transfer portal was introduced, I tried to transfer the amount to my current employer EPF account and the request was again rejected. Again, I did not get a rejection letter.
Then I filed a RTI query to know the rejection reason. I was told in reply that the money has been transferred to account DL/X7XXX/XXX6. However my correct number is DL/X4XXX/XXX8. Clearly the amount has been transferred to the wrong account.
What are the next steps I can take to get this mistake rectified?
