    I have a problem on EPF KYC. Recently one of the members quit the job, and so we showed his date of exit accordingly. At that time his KYC was not done. Now when he approached the EPF Office for withdrawal of his funds, they told him his KYC was not done, and for withdrawal of funds KYC need to be done. So we tried to update his KYC online, But since we had already submitted his name in exit employee, the site doesn’t approve his KYC saying this member doesn’t exist. So how to approve his KYC. Kindly help.
