A functionality to generate for the establishments/ members joining EPF Scheme on or after 1st October 2017, has already been provided in the EPFO application software vide version no 5.68 dated 22-09-2017.

This facility has been extended for the members/ establishments joined on or after 1st April 2012 as well. Accordingly, in the EPFO Application Software version 5.82 dated 10-11-2017, there are two functionalities provided:

  • Approval of Form–9 membership data i.e. “Approve Form-9 Data (April 2012 to Sept 2017)” and
  • Generation of e-Form 9 data “Generate e-Form-9 (April 2012 to September 2017)”.

The above provision has been made with the intention to generate e-Form-9 for the members/ Establishments joined on or after 1st April 2012 in the EPFO Application Software and thereby reduce the usage of papers and bulk registers.

Usage of this functionality involves a two stage process.

  • Then e-Form-9 can be generated in respect of those approved members/Establishments joined on or after 1st April 2012 to 30th September 2017.

All Regional offices arc advised to approve and generate e-Form-9 within 2 months period so that electronic records of members are made available.
