EPFO launches new schemes

Employees' Provident Fund Organisation is extending its social security benefits such as provident fund, insurance and pension to all employees covered under the Employees' Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act.

To incentivise employers and employees to come under the provisions of the Act, the Central government has launched two schemes -- the Employees’ Enrolment Campaign 2017 and Pradhan Mantri Rozgar Protsahan Yojna.

Employers are requested to contact the nearest EPF offices or commissioners to get details about the schemes. AII the PF commissioners have been instructed to popularise the scheme among employees, employers, employers association and trade unions. The EPFO will conduct inspections after the campaign period ending on March 31.
