    Dear Raviraj

    My employer has received the Aadhaar numbers from the employees in Nov 2016 for seeding to the EPF database. But so far there is no information on whether this seeding process is complete or when this will be completed. I checked my online EPF login and the Aadhaar number is not seen. However, I can see PAN and Bank A/c details only.
    I do have a UAN which is activated. I am not sure if I must use the Aadhaar or Non-Aadhaar form. Any ideas? I need to make a partial withdrawal. Any concrete advice much helpful. Thanks in advance.

    • Dear Charles,

      As you are unable to see your Aadhaar in EPF login it is obvious that seeding process is not completed. You can go ahead with Non Aadhaar based form or you can ask your employer to seed aadhar number.
