    1. CS Rohit Kudale says:

      Visit your EPF office and submit withdrawal form along with supporting documents physically.

      If you are in employment and covered under EPF, then get the KYC approved from your present employer.

    Subject: PAN approved but not verified.
    Dear Rohith Sir,
    My Aadhar has been approved by my previous company and verified by UADAI and,
    PAN has been Approved by the same previous company but not verified by ITD(Income Tax Department).
    My question are:
    1.Who verifies PAN details ?
    2.Can Employer verify PAN?
    3. Whether PAN has to be verified only by ITD (Income Tax Department) ?

    Thanks with Regards

    1. CS Rohit Kudale says:

      PAN is verified by ITD only. It gets verified electronically from ITD portal. Manual approval is not done.

      Submit the PAN details again and get it approved by your present employer.

    1. CS Rohit Kudale says:

      Sorry I cannot help. To approve your KYC, DSC of your employer will be required. Some third person like me cannot do anything. Please contact your company consultant and employer for your KYC approval. To escalate you can approach the PF office.
