    Hi Raviraj,

    My employer updated incorrect bank account and PAN details for me in KYC page of new EPFO website. I then re-uploaded correct KYC details 2-3 weeks back, after EPFO site became operational again.

    But my employer now says that they are not able to approve KYC, since website is giving an error and not allowing to approve.

    I wrote to EPFO email about this, but they replied saying website is working fine.

    I dont know what to do now, please give your expert advice on what should I do now? I want to get this resolved soon since I wish to withdraw my PF.


    • Dear RK,

      I would suggest you to go for KYC again online by using your account.Submit the detail again and ask your employer to approve.It will surely solve your issue.
