The Employee Provident Fund rolled out under the supervision of the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) is one of the popular saving schemes available to working people in India. The scheme rolled out to help individuals who are engaged in the organized sector. But later it was extended to even those who work in the unorganized sector.
The EPF was chalked out initially, to inculcate the habit of savings amongst the working individuals.
Earlier members had to wait for a long time to receive their provident fund amount after submitting their claim forms. But now, the employees have a facility to check and track the status of their provident fund claims online. Thus, the EPFO has made the PF transfer claim status easier.
