This is a win-win situation for all where one is able to port the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) from one employer to another. The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) is working to make this ideal situation become a reality.
Permanent Account Number (PAN), Unique Identification Number or National Population Register Number may be used to help the portability of Employees Provident Fund.
Sow with a job change, you can always port your accounts to new employer without the need of closing the old account. Hope it becomes a reality and it does not remain a paper proposal. No doubt India will be able to achieve the same as we have ben able to achieve mobile portability sooner than later.
