Jalandhar, April 2

The office of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has written to the Phagwara police seeking registration of FIRs against two firms for not depositing the PF deducted from the salaries of its employees.

As per records from the EPFO office, an amount of Rs 1.15 crore, which was deducted from the salaries of around 1,000 employees of JCT Mill for the months of January, February and March last year, is yet to be deposited with it.

As per the norms, the amount is to be transferred to the PF account of the employees within 15 days. The matter came to the knowledge of the officials during an audit of the accounts.

The EPFO has reportedly written to the Phagwara police to lodge an FIR against the mill owners for the alleged violations of Sections 406 and 409 of the PF Regulation Act.

Likewise, as per records, Wahid Sandhar Sugar Mill has not deposited the PF amount worth Rs 56.08 lakh of 300 employees between July 2021 and October 2022. The EPFO has sought the registration of an FIR against the sugar mill too.
