Why did the EPFO raise this step
- UAN is required for PF contribution at the present time. At current time only Employer can generate UAN of the Employee.
- Many Employees Join new companies every month. In this case, companies feel difficult to generate new UAN because their data base does not match the data. Keeping in view the difficulties of companies, EPFO has given new facility to allocate direct UAN aloft to Unified Portal.
