You will be asking me what it is. And when I give you the answer, you may say
“Are you Serious?”
Yes my friends. I am Serious.
The answer is
“Starting immediately, you can check your EPF Balance, Online and also get SMS Alerts**”
Isn’t that wonderful news? After years of misery for PF account holders who had no clue about their PF account balance, the PF Office has finally done the remarkable job of loading the data online and making it available for the citizens of India.
Amidst all this rejoicing, did you miss the two asterisk symbols?
** - Data is available Online only for PF Offices from Delhi (North), Delhi (South), Laxmi Nagar (Delhi), Gurgaon, Faridabad, Karnal and Bangalore. Remaining offices will be added soon.
Nonetheless, the new demands a celebration and I am very very happy to share this news with all of you.
