No need to upload scanned PAN Card copy at the time of PF registration of establishment as details can be verified directly from Income Tax Department
Currently at the time of P.F. registration of an establishment with EPFO, the employer is required to upload digitally signed copy of PAN card. However, Ease of Doing business mandates elimination of the requirement of submitting scanned copy of PAN card at the time of registration.
EPFO, in an instruction addressed to all Additional/Regional P.F. Commissioners has informed that the requirement of uploading the scanned copy of PAN card at the time of registration of establishment has been examined and in view of the fact that an online system has already been put in place whereby PAN details can be verified directly from the Income Tax, there is no need to upload the scanned copy of PAN card at the time of registration of establishments.
Instructions has already been issued for carrying out necessary modifications in the software accordingly.
The field offices have been advised not to insist on the copy of PAN card at the time of registration of a new establishment.
