I have applied for EPF Online Transfer by generating Form 13. I have selected present employer for attestation purpose. The date of submission was 31 August and by 9 September 2015 it was approved by the present employer. It is mandatory for the previous employer would also be approved the Form 13 or it could be done by any of them. If I had selected Present Employer for attestation, Is there any probability that the previous employer could create an unnecessary delay. Please answer this. How long this process may take I have applied on 31 August 2015. The Status is Sr No Member Name Previous Account No. Current Account Status of Claim Employer Printable Form 13 1 SANDEEP CHAURASIA RJUDR00224610000000050 RJRAJ00279890000000512 31 Aug 2015 Claim Form Submitted. 16 Sep 2015 Claim Form Pending at Previous Employer. 09 Sep 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer.

Sandeep-It usually takes 15 days of time. If the same status continues for more, then raise the issue with EPFO grievance portal. Your past employer can’t keep it pending. Either they have to approve or reject.
OK Thanks, One more thing where to track, When i applied on 31 Aug, i got a claim id and on 14 Sep, I have got a sms ” Your Transfer claim is submitted under tracking id xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Which is different from the previous tracking id. Should I wait or raise the issue.
Sandeep-In my view, better to wait for a week then raise the issue.
