EPFO TO GO PAPERLESS NEXT YEAR - The Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952
The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has plans to go paperless by August next year as part of Digital India initiative, which would improve delivery of services for its five crore subscribers. EPFO, which runs social security schemes like EPF, pension and insurance for formal sector workers, has already launched a host of online services like EPF withdrawals. This will be a big boom for the formal sector workers as well as their employers. The online facility would help the EPFO do away with the public interface for reducing chances of corruption and public harassment.
"The EPFO has set a target. We have decided to make electronic paper-free organization by next the Independence Day where all services will be provided electronically (through online or mobile handsets)", Central Provident Fund Commissioner V.P. Joy said after flagging of a Trinaga Yatra. He further said that once the EPFO goes paperless, people would not have to visit the offices to get their work done and save man hours. Joy also talked about the EPFO's housing scheme where the body provides facility to make down payment to buy homes.
