Verification of compliance under EPF and MP Act, 1952

Deployment Of Electronic Facility At Employer Interface Of EPFO’s Unified Portal For Principal Employers To View EPF Compliances Of Their Contractors And Contract Workers – The Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952:

EPFO has recently deployed a new electronic facility at Employer interface of unified portal to view EPF compliances of contractors and contract workers engaged through these contractors. Through this facility, the principal employers can also view whether the employer’s share of EPF contributions paid by the principal employer has been remitted by the contractor for all contract workers or not.

Since Principal Employers are entrusted with the responsibility of payment of PF dues in respect of contract employees also, in terms with provisions laid down under para  30 (3) of EPF Scheme,1952, therefore Principal Employers should make use of the said facility by registering the details of various labour contractors & contract employees engaged in the establishment and verify EPF compliance in respect of employees engaged through such labour contractors.

In this regard, a relevant circular, having detailed guidelines, is enclosed herewith for your kind reference.
