ORDER

In the matter of discontinuance of Form- 9 in physical form.

In the wake of rapid computerization in EPFO as an initiative towards Electronic Paper Free Organization, the submission of Form 9 by the employers in physical form has been re-visited.

2. Since employee master is available in the system containing all relevant details of the employee viz. name, gender, DOB, DOJ, father’s/spouse’s name as well as Aadhar & bank details fetched through ECR, submission of Form No. 9 in physical form by the employer can be discontinued. This would boost e-governance for fully electronic settlement of claims and also facilitate the employers in ease of doing business by reducing their paper work.

3. Accordingly, in exercise of the powers conferred under para 36(7) of Employees’ Provident Funds Scheme, 1952, discontinuance of submission of Form 9 in physical form is ordered in respect of all the members joining as well as the establishments being covered on or after 1St October, 2017.
