On Friday, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) posed a link on its website (epfindia.com) which enables members to get their PF account balance update as an SMS Alert on their mobile.
Members only need to furnish their respective PF account numbers to avail of this facility.
EPFO had been conducting an internal trial of this software for the past two months.
“The idea is to make the system transparent. Now, an employee can regularly check, whether the amount, which is being deducted every month from h/his salary, is getting deposited with us. If s/he finds any discrepancy, the individual can take the matter up with the employer or us,” said central provident fund commissioner S Chatterjee.
