Provided also that the insured woman having two or more than two surviving children shall be entitled to receive maternity benefits during a period of twelve weeks of which not more than six weeks shall precede the expected date of confinement.
Dues were assessed on the basis of balance sheet without identification of beneficiaries on EO's report. Appellant's contention is that employees were engaged through different registered contractors from time to time. EPF Authority submitted that the appellant neither produced list of contractors nor list of employees and in such circumstances there was no option with the department, except to pass the impugned order.
The entire case of assessment of EPF dues is for the period April 2005 to March 2011. Neither EO nor the EPF Authority is known to the beneficiaries till date. Dues, if collected, would not give any benefit to any of the employees. Hence, impugned order is sets aside. Matter is remanded back to the EPF Authority for passing a speaking order by getting joined the alleged contractors, having identified the beneficiaries and only on the basis of balance sheet, in accordance with law. Appellant is supposed to furnish complete list of contractors and employees within 2 months from the date of this order to the EPF Authority. Any amount deposited shall not be disbursed till further order.

New Version of UAN is going to be implemented-
Key features of next version of UAN
UAN would be the key field in Electronic Challan cum Return (ECR).
For a member joining EPF for the first time, the UAN would be obtained by the employer or member prior to filing of ECR by the employer for that member
The employer would furnish the member's details on the basis of KYC documents i.e. Aadhaar, PAN, Bank Account etc. to avoid future issues about member's name, name of father/spouse, date of birth etc.
The UAN would be allotted upfront on the portal and would be validated in the ECR file of the employer at the time of its submission.
Also for a member who was earlier a member of EPF prior to joining the present establishment, the linking of the existing UAN of the member should necessarily be done by the employer before filing of UAN based ECR.
The member's details as available in the provided UAN i.e. name of member, date of birth, father's/ Husband's name would be used in the ECR of the present employment.
The generation/linking of UAN can be done through an online functionality on UAN portal.
This would be mandatory for the employer to include the new members in the ECR.
