"Aadhaar seeding and bank account linking will help do away with multiple provident fund accounts, once merger of accounts happens with the help of Aadhaar seeding," Additional Central PF Commissioner S B Sinha told PTI.
He said bank account linking will help members to remotely manage accounts and for claim settlements.
"On an average, one person has three PF accounts (in West Bengal) due to change in employment," he said.
Since, July 1, 2017, Universal Account No (UAN) generation requires mandatory Aadhaar seeding, bank details and mobile number.
Mr Sinha said for old account holders, seeding is being carried out.
"Employees will not require transferring their PF account to the new employer as with Aadhaar-seeded UAN numbers, transfer will happen automatically and seamlessly without any intervention of the member," Rai said.
The Employees Provident Fund Organisation will send its officers to residences of pensioners for life certificates in case they need this service, and was procuring gadgets and tools for it.
"EPFO has also commenced self-certification for pre-mature withdrawal and pensioners' portal for disbursal details," Sinha added.
