  1. Hi My PF withdrawal was rejected with reasons
    01) CALL FOR EMPLOYERS CONFIRMATION
    02) UAN CLAIM CANCELLED CHEQUE NOT AS PER KYC Bank Details

    what needs to be done for point 1?
    For point 2 i don’t understand the reason as cheque was not crossed but details are same as per claim and BANK KYC details

    Do i need to raise the claim again? or same claim will be processed by some process?
    Anything i have to followup with my ex organisation?

    thanks and regards,

  6. Hi,

    I applied for PF withdrawal, but it got rejected with error :
    1) PDF NOT PRITNABLE
    2) CERTIFICATE ENCLOSED IS IMPROPER.

    I can think of only two reasons :
    1) My cheque was crossed and “Cancelled”. I just took photo of cheque and uploaded.
    2) I did not upload Form 15g. I did not knew whether it need to be uploaded or if it is mandatory. Later reading your website, I understand if form 15g is not uploaded, there would be 10% TDS which I can get refunded when filing tax returns.

    Any idea if above reasons may be reasons for rejections with said reasons ?

    • Maybe the photo of your cheque is not clear and form 15G is required when your total PF amount (employee+employer share) is more than 50000 Rs and your service is below 5 yrs, otherwise not required.

      • Thanks Rajesh for your feedback ! I will take better picture of cheque.
        Regarding Form 15G, my PF amount is more than Rs.50K and service below 5 yrs. So ideally I need form 15g, else 10% TDS will be deducted.

    Your Claim has been rejected due to : 1) RESUBMIT ALONGWITH NAME PRINTED CANCELLED CHEQUE 2) CERTIFICATE A/B/C/D/E/F NOT ENCLOSED / SIGNED

    • May be your name was not printed on the cheque, so re submit your claim with a new cheque on which your name is printed or you can also submit bank passbook first-page copy. You can ignore the second reason.
