If certain employee details are available, employer attestation is no longer needed, which speeds up the process
The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has been taking various steps to make EPF accounts more user friendly. The latest step in that direction is doing away with the need for employers’ approval at the time of EPF withdrawal. The process so far required you to route your withdrawal request through the employer as employer attestation was needed. This often led to unwanted delays.
