Sub:-Seeding of Aadhaar number in the UAN database of  EPF members -regarding.


It is noted that under the implemented Universal Account Number (UAN) programme, the seeding of Aadhaar number in the UAN database of EPF members is very low (just 23% up to 25.10.2016). At present for 7.95 crores UAN issued by EPFO only around 1.82 crores Aadhaar numbers of members have been uploaded and approximately 1.5 crores Aadhaar numbers of members have been digitally verified by the employers.

It needs to be emphasized that to identify the member across his different employments , the Universal Account Number (UAN) database of members has to be seeded with his KYC details. The Aadhaar number issued by UIDAI is one of the important KYCs being seeded to extend a number of direct services to the member.

At PRAGATI Meeting dated 24/08/16, it was pointed out that seeding of Aadhaar number in the UAN database of EPF members is very low (20%) and OSD(L&E) asked for timelines for completion of Aadhaar Seeding in view of the poor performance. Subsequently, Ministry of Labour & Employment has set the timeline to ensure 100% Aadhaar Seeding in Beneficiary Database by 31/12/2016.

So, field offices may conduct awareness programme regarding benefits of Aadhaar Seeding and are required to take all necessary steps to complete the task of Seeding of Aadhaar within given time frame and monitor the same on daily basis.

Aadhaar Seeding will be monitored on week ly basis at Head Office and the explanation of low progressing offices shall be called.

This is for your information and necessary action.

Yours faithfully

    I feel it is because the PF software not giving out the list of members who’s KYC not seeded. A user friendly software can increase the KYC seeding %.
