There are so many cases where employees KYC details update requests are not getting approval from their employer. Even though the employees are updating their details in UAN member portal, still they are not getting approval. Generally when an employee updates his KYC details then the employer will find those details immediately in their employer PF portal, if they have valid digital signature then they can approve the KYC details requests immediately. But the problem here is some employers aren’t aware of the digital signature, so the employees KYC update requests will remain pending at PF portal. Last year EPFO introduced Aadhar based E Sign to approve the KYC requests of employees, here we know how to approve KYC in EPF without digital signature by using Aadhar based E sign.
