Used RTI to transfer Providend Fund

Reported on April 7, 2011 from New Delhi , Delhi  ι Report #32173

I worked for a company where HQ was in Delhi. So our PF accounts were in Delhi. I changed my job and moved to Hyderabad. I requested for PF transfer and they didn't transfer for 2 years.

The PF office was not replying over phone and asking me to come via authorised person. They were asking me to approach through a broker who was charging 20 % of PF amount.

PF laws says that if PF is not trasnferred in stipulated time (may be 30 days), the respective officer should be penalised by deducting interest from his salary.

I filed an RTI to check status of PF transfer and push the case to highest officer and CVC of India. They had to transfer my PF without any bribe.

I pursue the case to find the defaulting officer but Delhi PF office didn't give me name after 15 letters written in a year.
