THE ESTABLISHMENT SEARCH FACILITY
What is the use of this facility?
Since the creation of the multiple Regional Offices in some of the States, the erstwhile used State Codes were changed for 19 Regional Offices. Moreover, after the implementation of the Computerisation Project in the EPFO Offices, the members account number uses the Office code also even when the Region Codes had not changed.
Since the EPF members and even some employers were not aware of the new Region and Office codes, the facility has been provided to search the code number of an establishment and the EPFO Office under which the establishment is making the PF remittances.
A visitor to the website, who knows any one of the search fields, namely his account number starting with the old State code, name of his establishment, part name of the establishment, office under which his accounts are maintained etc can search the details of the establishment and also view:
1. Each electronic return (TRRN) wise payments made by the employer since April 2012,
