In a move to extend the availability and reach of online services in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, retirement fund body Employees' Provident Fund Organisation has issued revised instructions to its field offices to facilitate its subscribers to rectify their date of birth in EPFO records online, thus ensuring that their UAN is KYC compliant.

"The date of birth recorded in 'Aadhaar' will now be accepted as valid proof of date of birth for the purpose of rectification, provided that the difference in the two dates is less than three years," EPFO said in a statement.

"The PF subscribers can submit the correction requests online. This will enable EPFO to validate the date of birth of members online with UIDAI instantaneously, thus authenticating and reducing the processing time of change requests," it added.
