EPFO News: UAN-Aadhaar-PF Linking ALERT! Employees need to seed their Aadhaar-UAN till THIS date
The organisation has made it necessary to link the Universal Account Number (UAN) of the Provident Fund account with the Aadhaar card.
The Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has extended the deadline to seed Aadhaar with the Universal Account Number (UAN) for filing Electronic Challan-cum-Returns (ECR) till September 1, 2021.
The organisation has made it necessary to link the Universal Account Number (UAN) of the Provident Fund account with the Aadhaar card. For this, EPFO has made changes in section 142 of the Social Security Code 2020. And this has changed the ECR filing protocol.

“The ECR shall be allowed to be filed only for those members, whose Aadhaar numbers are seeded and verified with the UANs, Ensure the Aadhaar seeding in respect of all the contributory members to enable them to avail uninterrupted services of the EPFO and to avoid any inconvenience,” EPFO earlier mentioned in a circular.
Earlier, EPFO said in its tweet that after June 1, 2021, the employer will be able to file an ECR of the same employee whose UAN is linked to Aadhaar. For those whose Aadhaar is not updated, their ECR will be filled separately. He can later link the employee's UAN with Aadhaar. But everyone has to do it as soon as possible.
If Aadhaar is not linked with your account, then EPFO can stop the contribution of the company from coming to the employee's account. It will be able to start only when Aadhaar is linked with your PF account.
Therefore, if you have not given the Aadhaar number in the PF account, then complete this work quickly. The EPFO informed that employer can file separate ECR for non-Aadhaar seeded UAN after completion of the Aadhaar seeding process.
