    What is EPFO and what is its significance?

    I am an established contractor in NALCO. I am always up to date regarding the payment of workers. I always take any job after the work order is provided to me. I always get my payment after providing the bill and worker payment sheet. But this time site in charge is not passing my bill and asking for EPFO deposits. Give the details about EPFO?

    Hello Friend,

    EPFO stands for Employees Provident Fund Organization. It is a statutory body of
    Goverment of India. It administers a compulsory contributory Provident Fund Scheme,
    Insurance Scheme and Pension Scheme.

    You have to submit the deposit to the Employees Providend Fund through online fund
    transfer. You should visit EPFO wesites for furthar details.

    EPFO is Employees Provident Fund Organization which administers the PF scheme on behalf of the Employers. Each organization which is registered with the the EPFO if given a registration number and each employee has his own PF number within that organization. When you want to track the amount deposited in your PF account, you have to track it through this registration number. Please ask your site in-charge to tell you about this number and use the same to track your PF deposits.
    Hope this information may help you. Regards
