This is Anil Kumar, presently working in a private firm in Bangalore.
I worked since April 2012, in Gujarat. When I left that company, I applied for my P.F. withdrawal after 2 months (in July 2012), but due to some reasons, application got rejected, I tried to find out the reasons but didn’t able to find.
Now as again I was filling the application, I noticed that my name mentioned in employer record is “Anil Kumar Singh” (as it appears in my Salary Slip) while in my supporting documents like PANCARD, Passport name I used is only “Anil Kumar” only.
I am assuming that may be the reason, my application got rejected earlier.
Now what action, I should take so that my P.F. withdrawal application not get rejected again.
Do I have to submit any affidavit for the correction of name, if yes do you have the affidavit format?
Also as its more than 3 yrs, P.F. account is inactive, do I have to submit INDEMNITY AFFIDAVIT. If yes can you provide me the affidavit format.
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Anil-In my view, it is not a major mismatch which may lead to rejection of application. However, if you still have doubt, then request you to submit the name correction through your employer. Below is the link of the Circular related to change in personal details of EPF Account.
