As you are aware that UAN is mandatory for filing the PF member contribution. Currently, UAN can be generated only by Employer and the same to be generated before ECR filing of that PF member. Establishments with a large number of new joiners every month are facing problem in generation of UAN due to mismatch of input data with Aadhaar.
Keeping in view the difficulties faced by employers an open functionality is being provided at Unified Portal through which any citizen (prospective employee) can generate his/her UAN on the basis of Aadhaar. The employee will get OTP on Aadhaar linked mobile and after verification of input data, the system will fetch the basic details like name, DOB, Gender and Father’s/ Husband’s name etc. from UIDAI and the same shall be shown on screen. On the basis of input/fetched details, UAN will be generated.
Now, the citizen ongoing for an employment can submit generated UAN to the employer so that the same UAN will be linked to the member ID allotted to a member in that establishment. It will be a great help to the employer as well as employees to avail hassle free service from EPFO.
