It is noted that in some cases, though Universal Account Numbers have been allotted legitimately i.e. under the prescribed criteria, interventions are necessitated due to following reasons:-
a) At the time of initial allotment, the employer has not furnished the date of exit in the ECR although the member has left the employment and joined some other establishment. Under the defined criteria, two UANs have resulted to such members for both the employments.
b) At the time of joining the present employment, a new UAN has been allotted to the member due to wrong declaration by member/ employer under UAN programme.
2. The matter has been examined and it has been decided that in case of duplicate UANs issued to one EPF member as mentioned above, the following solutions are detailed below:
3. It is requested that the above process may be informed to the employers and EPF members, in case there are cases of multiple UANs allotted to same EPF members.
4. This issues with the approval of Central P.F Commissioner.
