You may file RTI with EPFO office in Gujarat seeking details of transfer of PF to Gurgaon EPFO [like date, amount, certified copy of letter sent to Gurgaon, cheque number or any other reference number, date and proof of mailing to Gurgaon office and also statement of account for last one year]. Please attach self attested photocopy of your identity proof with RTI application. Please refer:


Central Govt. application:








Simultaneously, file e-complaint on following websites and also mail hard copy to Vapi and Gurgaon EPFO offices:


Epfo (Govt. of India) and http://epfigms.gov.in/



When you get information from Vapi EPFO, mail a representation to Gurgaon office with self attested photocopy of CPIO reply with a request to locate the amount


and credit to your account. In case if there is inordinate delay by Gurgaon office, you may again use RTI by referring above two links of RTI and the following link:


Long pending? :





Please do not worry about loss of amount. You will definitely get it. In case if issue is not solved with above steps, please come to this portal again for further guidance.


EPFO is in the process of giving universal PF account number which will remain same through out service period of an employee, irrespective of change in employer and hence this problem will be solved once for all for all employees. You may seek this number if received by your old or new employer.

Thank you so much sir for immediate reply,


Here I would like to share that I do not have any copies of those submitted document because I have filled up the form in hurry, I didn't got time to take a Xerox of that form.


but as I am searching it on portal with my old PF account no (Provided by my previous employer) it is showing it got settled so I thought its done but while I took new PF account no (with my new employer) and downloaded the passbook but amount was not there.

I could give all those details only. Also I have registered for that universal no (UAN) and downloaded passbook from that portal assuming that in UAN it might reflect settlement, but there was no change in that also.

I was following all this procedure with a employee at our current organisation but he recently left.


please guide me further. what could be done.

You may attach copy of screen shot of the portal showing transfer and approximate month/year in which forms were mailed to Vapi EPFO. In your case Vapi office has tranfered amount and it has not been credited to your account at Gurgaon and I think it is manually done by Vapi office. Hence to enable Gurgaon office to locate transfer, we can provide documentary evidence with all the details to Gurgaon office. In addition to RTI please follow up administratively on EPFO portals and by hard copies by speed post [to be tracked for delivery at http://www.indiapost.gov.in]. Please use copy of screen shot showing transfer in all your representations.

      Mr. Himanshu J. Mehta Vs Employees Provident Fund Organisation, Ahmedabad.
      Appeal No. 111/ICPB/2006 In the matter of Right to Information Act, 2005 – Section 19.
      Appellant: Mr. Himanshu J. Mehta
      Public authority: Employees Provident Fund Organisation, Ahmedabad. Sh. S.S.Nair - CPIO Regional Provident Fund Commissioner – Appellate Authority.
      FACTS: The appellant vide his communication dated 21.12.2005 addressed to the CPIO had sought the following information, followed by first appeal dated 23.2.2006 to the Regional Provident Fund Commissioner : i. Allotment of Provident Fund Code No.GJ/28322 allotted to M/s Tectona Soft Solution (Pvt) Ltd. ii. Copy of the Application submitted by M/s Tectona Soft Solution (Pvt) Ltd. iii. Copy of the Notification of the Provident Fund Commissioner applying the provisions of the Act. iv. Copy of the Letter of Authority used by Mahesh Shah to appear before the Assistant Provident Fund Commissioner in proceedings initiated u/s 7A of the Employees Provident Fund & Misc. Provisions Act. v. Copy of the proceedings which have been attended by Mahesh Shah on behalf of the company M/s. Tectona Soft Solution (Pvt) Ltd. By a letter dated 7.4.2006, the Public Authority informed the appellant that hearing in the above matter has been scheduled on 21.4.2006 during which the documents sought for by the appellant could be handed over. The appellant filed an appeal before the AA on 17.4.2006. Since he did not get any reply from AA, he filed the present appeal. Comments were called for from CPIO. Pointing out that proceedings had been initiated against M/S Tectona Soft Solution Pvt. Ltd. under the provisions of the Employees Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act which is pending has contended that the matter is pending before a quasi judicial authority. It has also been stated in the comments that the appellant has already been advised that whatever documents had been sought for would be furnished to him during the proceedings but no body has so far appeared on behalf of the establishment. In his elaborate rejoinder, the appellant has contended that the provisions of EPF was not applicable at all to the establishment and has sought for directions to the CPIO to furnish the information asked for by the appellant.
      DECISIONI find from the reply of the CPIO that he has not taken shelter under any of the exemptions provided under Section 8 of the Act but has only informed the appellant that the documents could be handed over during the course of the hearing. Since the appellant has claimed himself to be the advocate for M/S Tectona Soft Solutions (Pvt) Ltd, on his producing an authority from the said company, the CPIO will furnish all the information sought for by the appellant within 15 days from the receipt of the authority from the company as I find that the information sought for is not exempt under any of the provisions of Section 8 of the Act. In so far as the contention of the appellant in his rejoinder that EPF Act is not applicable to the company, this Commission has no powers to enquire into such matters.

      Hi Member,

      Would like to have your view on using RTI to get information for the below scenario:

      I have been requesting the "Regional PF Commissoner, Maharashtra - Bandra" through e-mail since May 15, 2006 to update me on the status of my PF Transfer Request from Maharashtra to Karnataka PF A/c & is yet to respond. I have almost written him 8 e-mails, but everything went in vain.

      Now, having lost my patience, I thougt of raising a complaint using RTI. Can you help me to know whether RTI could be used for this purpose.
      Thanks in advance.
