New Employee Details to be filled Online from October: EPFO

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) announced yesterday that employers will have to fill in the details of their new employees online October 1 onwards, says a news report .

The move will effectively halt the process of manually filing Form-9, which was a declaration by the employee taking up employment. 

A senior official, sharing the development, stated that the present process of manually filing of Form-9 will no longer be available from October 1, 2017. The report states that the step was taken “in the wake of rapid computerisation in EPFO as an initiative towards Electronic Paper Free Organisation.” The physical submission of Form-9 can be done away with, as the employee master roll (containing details like name, gender, date of birth, date of joining, father’s/spouse’s name, Aadhar number and bank account details) is already available in the system, the official explained.

He further added that this step will help in settling claims electronically, will reduce employers’ burden and paperwork and is also a step towards better e-governance. EPFO plans to go completely paperless and provide all EPFO services online by next year August.
