EPFO seeks stricter PF compliance for foreign workers

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), in its latest move, aims to ensure stricter provident fund compliance when it comes to foreign workers in India. The EPFO, in a recent circular, requested its regional offices to coordinate with the Foreigners’ Regional Registration Offices (FRRO) and obtain a list of foreign nationals employed in the establishments of their respective jurisdictions. The regional offices have, in turn, been asked to reconcile the data with the monthly returns filed by employers and take suitable action where there is non-compliance.
