With all the “digitization drive” that the Indian government has undertaken, lots of government services are being moved to online format. One of them is the Employee Provident Fund which has started various online facilities including passbook view, Account Transfers, online withdrawal service etc. But these services do not work for many people, simply due to the fact that their account is not setup correctly. The names on the account do not match with the KYC details, or the KYC is not seeded etc.
The major cause of grievance is the errors in the name and the difficulties that the members face while correcting them. EPF department has now tried to solve this problem by allowing correction of such basic details online. For this, the employee must have a UAN and should be able to login to the employee dashboard here.
Here’s how to Correct Basic Details in UAN
