EPFO time bars inquiry against employers in Provident Fund cases to 7 yrs
Opposing the circular, the trade union leaders have decided to press the government for withdrawal of the circular.
"This circular which has time-barred such inquiries is anti-worker and we would Lodge our protest with the Labour Secretary," a EPFO trustee and Secretary Hind Mazoor Sabha A D Nagpal said.
Echoing similar views, another EPFO trustee and Secretary of All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) D L Sachdeva said: "We will demand withdrawal of this circular and soon write to Labour Secretary about this."
EPFO has over 50 million subscribers and manages a corpus of over Rs 3.5 lakh crore.
