EPFO makes UAN mandatory for all employers under its purview
Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has notified an order to make Universal Account Number (UAN) mandatory for all its employers.
It will be mandatory for all employers covered under the Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952.
The UAN facility was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October 2014. It is portable throughout the lifetime of an employee and removes the need for employees to apply for PF transfer claims while changing jobs
