Sir, I’m working for last 21 years. I’ve certain queries such as:
- It is being noted that the employer deposits the contributions late by 2-3 months as per the SMS received from the EPFO. For some months I haven’t yet received any message of contribution deposited.
- Also, I found that my employer’s yearly contribution to EPF is short by rs. 8000/- from last years contribution.
Please direct me as to what do I do. Also, can the employer legally freeze its contribution to EPF? Please guide.
I think I replied to your email. Don’t rely on SMS alerts. Instead, check for your passbook for details. If they are failing to deposit, then raise the issue with EPFO. Also, they can’t reduce their contribution as and when they wish for. Hence, better to raise the issue with EPFO using the EPFO Grievance Cell Online.
