As part of provisions launched in 2017, EPFO had said that the timeline in case of claim settlements is 10 days and 15 days in case of grievance redressal management. These are part of new provisions in the EPFO's Citizens Charter 2017 launched in Bangalore by Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya.
It said the Charter is an attempt to bring transparency and accountability on the part of EPFO and make service delivery system and grievance redressal mechanism more efficient.
Further, in order to facilitate easy access to the tribunal, automated messages will be sent to the litigants on their registered mobile numbers on the status of their cases. Stakeholders can also track the individual cases online, it said.
However EPFO has cautioned that user's grievances will only be entertained if the member's Universal Portable Account Number (UAN) is given along with the complaint.
