Sub: Introduction of Direct UAN allotment to any citizen at Unified Portal- regarding.


As you are aware that UAN is mandatory for filing the member contribution. Currently UAN can be generated by Employer only and the same to be generated before ECR filing of that member. Establishments with large number of new joiners every month, are facing problem in generation of UAN due to mismatch of input data with Aadhaar.

Keeping in view the difficulties faced by employers an open functionality is being provided at Unified Portal through which any citizen (prospective employee) can generate his/her UAN on the basis of Aadhaar. Employee will get OTP on Aadhaar linked mobile and after verification of input data, system will fetch the basic details like Name, DOB, Gender and Father’s/Husband’s Name etc from UIDAI and the same shall be shown on screen. On the basis of input/fetched details UAN will be generated.

Now, the citizen on going for an employment can submit generated UAN to the employer so that the same UAN will be linked to the member ID allotted to member in that establishment. It will be a great help to employer as well as employees to avail and hassle free service from EPFO.

Offices are requested to widely publicize this utility so that more and more citizens can take advantage of the same.

Yours faithfully,
