  1. Hello, I have initiate the PF transfer request, meanwhile the date of reliving was identified wrong and same has been corrected. Simultaneously the PF transfer was already initiated and same has been approved by employer as well as field office. Now how to cancel this request and re initiate the transfer request.

    • If PF amount not transferred to your new PF account then, you need to raise a grievance at PF portal to cancel the transfer claim request.
      If it is already transferred then check whether full PF amount transferred or not, if full PF amount transferred then submit PF joint declaration form to PF office to correct wrong date of exit.
