Retirement fund body the Employees provident Fund Organsiation has further eased compliance for employers by allowing them to use emails to obtain electronic signatures in case they are facing difficulties in using digital or Aadhaar based e-sign, writes The Economic Times.
Many important tasks like KYC attestation, transfer claim attestation etc are being done online by the authorized persons of employers using their digital signatures (DSC) or Aadhar based e-Signs on EPFO portal. However, they require a one-time approval from regional Offices for this.
EPFO is of the view that due to lockdown, many employers are facing difficulties to send the one time registration requests to the regional offices in the existing scenario.
Hence, employer can send the scanned copy of duly signed request letter to the concerned regional office through mail from now onwards.
