Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO)
The employee provident fund came into existence with the promulgation of Employees’ Provident Funds Ordinance on the 15th November 1951. It was replaced by Employees’ Provident Fund Act, 1952. The act is now referred to as the Employees’ Provident Funds & Miscellaneous provisions Act, 1952.
The Act and schemes framed there under are administrated by a tri-partite Board known as the Central Board of trustees, Employees’ Provident Fund, consisting of representatives of the Government (Both Central and State), Employers and Employees.
The Board administers a contributory provident fund, pension scheme and an insurance scheme for the workforce engaged in the organized sector in India. It is one of the world’s largest organizations in terms of clientele and the volume of financial transactions undertaken by it. The Board is assisted by the Employees’ PF Organization (EPFO), consisting of offices at 122 locations across the country. The EPFO is under the administrative control of Ministry of Labor and Employment, Government of India. The organization also has a well-equipped training set up where officers and employees of the organization as well as representatives of the employers and employees attend sessions for trainings and seminars.
