First, let me clarify one thing that there is a small difference between PF member ID and PF number, most EPF members are not aware of this. PF account number means complete PF format of an employee which includes company PF details also like region code, office code, establishment code, extension and finally PF member ID. The last 7 digits of any PF account number is actually the PF member id of the EPF member.
In the above example, GRVSP00780890000000456 is PF account number and the last 7 digits 0000456 is the PF member ID.
So whenever you find a PF account number like this then you can consider the last 7 digits as the the actual PF member ID of the employee, these PF member IDs varies from one employee to another employee working in the same organization.
