EPFO, the governing body of the retirement fund, has implemented the order to file Provident Fund (PF) returns by verifying the Universal Account Number (UAN) of the Employees’ Provident Fund Fund with the Aadhaar number. Postponed till September 2021. This will give more time to the employers to link the Aadhar number of their employees with their PF accounts or UAN number. Earlier, EPFO had set a deadline of June 1, 2021 for this work.
According to the office order issued by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), the deadline for filing electronic challan i.e. receipt of PF return (ECR) with Aadhaar verified UAN has been extended to September 1, 2021.

After the implementation of Social Security Code, 2020, it is mandatory to link PF UAN and Aadhar card under section 142 of it.
