  9. Satya S. says:

    Useless expenditure by the government on the website. The EPFO staff completely ignore it. I have a request long outstanding for a mail/SMS/email statement with EPFO RO, Gurgaon. I got the automated response when I registered the response and nothing thereafter.
    The EPFiGMS website is a DUMMY.

    The epfigms system says nothing about the inefficiancy of the PF officals/commissioners. I have submitted and on the 30 days I was informed that the cheques have been dispatched. Post that event, 3 weeks are over, but no payments. It seems that no authority to look for inefficiancy of the regional officers/commissioners.

    I tried to register my Grievance. But it is doing nothing. When we click on the submit button, it’s doing nothing

    Everybody in the civil service indulges only in self righteousness ergo bluff. This is the latest in that unending serio-comic series of bluffs.

  15. Ramakrishna Dirisala says:

    Like to know from when this system would be implemented. seems to be quiet useful for the end users.Saves lot of time and efforts which otherwise should have been used running after the PF Office which becomes useless after some time.This would be effective if it is implemented with accountability and proper monitoring.
