Ludhiana, September 30
The Ludhiana Regional Employee Provident Fund (EPFO) organization on Thursday launched a nationwide “Prayaas” campaign to deliver the Pension Payment Order (PPO) to employees on their retirement pension day here.
The campaign was launched by Regional Contingency Fund Commissioner I Dheeraj Gupta at a special function held here.
“EPFO has taken several political and digital initiatives to ensure uninterrupted service delivery to its subscribers. One of these initiatives is to release the pension on retirement day to members of the Employees’ Retirement System (EPS), 1995, ”he said.
Seeking cooperation from PSE members and employers, without whom, he said, the initiative cannot succeed, Gupta said employees and employers are being contacted to inform them of the documents they must provide and process involved in settling pension claims on a regular basis.
“Several members of EPS, 1995, have already benefited from this initiative,” he said.
On this occasion, the Regional Commissioner at the Provident Fund-I gave PPOs to five employees from different establishments, who reached retirement at the age of 58 on Thursday.
Keshar Singh and Jagjit Singh from Christian Medical College, Gurpal Singh from Ralson India Limited, Preeta Sharma from Iqbal Nursing Home and Rita Ekka from Sacred Heart Convent School were the beneficiaries of EPFO’s Prayaas initiative.
Gupta appealed to all establishments, especially those covered by the EPF and MP Law, 1952, in the Ludhiana region to file ECR by the 15th of the month in which the employee retires and also submit the form- 10D with the required documents so that their office is able to complete the formalities on time and deliver the PPO to the employees on the day of their retirement.
