EPFO mulls to use NPCI platform for beneficiary payment
New Delhi [India], Nov 24 (ANI): The Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has proposed to move towards the centralized payment system using National Payments Corporation of India platform for payment to the beneficiaries.
" Present decentralized system of EPFO for making payment to its beneficiaries involves higher cost of transactions, delays in recredits in case of failed transaction and does not provide for Aadhaar enabled payments," Ministry of Labour and Employment said in a statement.
The benefit of the proposed system is that the funds will be transferred on the same day to the beneficiaries through NPCI platform.
The office may reconcile the transaction status on T+0 basis and thus help in early recredit in the accounts of beneficiaries in the case of failed transactions, the official statement said.
"The availability of the facility of Aadhaar enabled transfer of funds and the transaction cost by way of bank charges will also come down," it added.
The meeting of the Central Board of Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) was held in New Delhi on Thursday under the chairmanship of Union Minister of Labour and Employment Santosh Kumar Gangwar approved the proposal. (ANI)
