Know your PF Account balance instantly

New Delhi, Sept 6, 2013

No more waiting for your annual Provident Fund (PF) account slips now.

Getting the latest details just got easier as the retirement fund manager Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has launched a facility for viewing PF accounts online on real time basis.

The internet facility was launched today by Labour Minister Sis Ram Ola in the presence of Minister of State for Labour and Employment Kodikunnil Suresh and EPFO's Central Provident Fund Commissioner K K Jalan, the Press Trust of India reported.

Speaking at the event, Jalan told PTI, “The facility would enable the EPFO to update accounts on real time basis. Now we would be able to provide annual account statement online by April or May every year with all due interest credits.”

The facility would also help in settling various claims well in time, Ola added.

At present, the five-crore subscribers get their records only once a year since the EPFO is supposed to send annual provident funds account slips by September.

However, the process usually takes longer.

The EPFO is also planning to launch the facility of online transfer of PF accounts in October, for which the organization is already conducting live tests.

Are you one of the 5 crore subscribers of the EPFO? Then check your accounts online on a real-time basis by clicking here.

  • As stocks tumble, Indian pharma, Taiwan tech lure smart money

    Asia’s tumbling stocks have triggered an exodus of funds from the region, but some investors say the sell-off has been indiscriminate and that certain stocks offer compelling buying opportunities. The downturn in equities has been exacerbated by steep falls in Asian currencies, which have taken multiple blows from a sputtering Chinese economy, the unexpected 2 percent devaluation of its yuan currency on Aug. 11, and expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise rates by year-end. Fears the …

  • India drugmaker stocks exception in Asian rout

    SINGAPORE/MUMBAI, Sept 3 (Reuters) - The double-digit stock market gains of pharmaceutical giants including Dr. Reddy's Laboratories and Wockhardt stand out in stark relief to the dismal performance of other Asian emerging-market stocks this year. Continued strength in the dollar when the Federal Reserve raises interest rates will also boost their income. More than 40 percent of over-the-counter and generic prescription drugs sold in the United States come from India. …

  • Stocks rise as China fears ease; oil rebounds

    Global stock indexes rose on Wednesday, helped by reports of brokerage measures in China to invigorate the country's battered markets, while oil bounced from earlier losses to end nearly 2 percent higher. An upward revision in U.S. productivity data and a Federal Reserve report saying U.S. labour markets were tight enough to fuel small wage gains in some professions in recent weeks boosted sentiment. Rallying equities pulled crude oil up from lows in another volatile session for the energy …

    Wall Street surges as turbulence becomes the norm

    U.S. investors have weathered over two weeks of unusually wide-swinging trade that has left the S&P 500 with its worst monthly drop in three years and a loss of 8.5 percent from an all-time high in May. U.S. labour markets were tight enough to fuel small wage gains in some professions in recent weeks, though some companies already felt a chill from an economic slowdown in China, the Fed said. The S&P 500 (.SPX) climbed 1.83 percent to 1,948.85 and the Nasdaq Composite (.IXIC) surged 2.46 …

    Oil turns higher as Wall Street rally offsets inventory rise

    Oil prices ended nearly 2 percent higher on Wednesday in volatile trade as rallying equities on Wall Street pulled crude up from lows after futures sank on concerns about global oversupply. "Looks like risk-on trade with a rising tide lifting all boats," John Kilduff, partner at Again Capital LLC in New York, said. Also providing lift was a rally in Canadian synthetic crude prices. …

    Gold steady after four-day gain, awaiting signal on U.S. rates

    Gold steadied on Wednesday after a four-day rally as uncertainty over the timing of a looming U.S. rate hike kept a lid on prices, while a retreat in stocks after weak U.S., Chinese and European manufacturing data lent some support. Traders are awaiting Friday's U.S. non-farm payrolls report for August, and Wednesday's ADP jobs data, for signs of strength in the U.S. jobs market. A disappointing number would further dent expectations that a U.S. rate hike is imminent. …
