    EPFO Extends Deadline For Submitting Aadhaar To June 30

    The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) had set April 30, 2017, as the deadline for submitting Aadhaar number earlier.

    The EPFO in January made it mandatory for its pensioners and subscribers to submit Aadhaar numbers.

    Later the deadline by revised time and again in view of slow progress over Aadhaar number submission by members.

    The central government contributes 1.16 per cent of the basic wages as the subsidy to every member Employees Pension Scheme Account in addition to 8.33 per cent deposited by their employers every month.

    Since the government provides a subsidy to an EPFO member, it has invoked Section 7 of the Aadhaar (Targetted Delivery of Financial and other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act 2016, for the purpose.

    The Section 7 of the Act provides that where the government provides a subsidy, benefit or service from Consolidated Fund of India, an individual can be asked to undergo authentication or furnish proof of possession of Aadhaar number.

    It also provides that where an individual to whom no Aadhaar number has been assigned, such individual can apply for enrolment.
