    Yes, you are eligible for EPS. If you havn't fill 10C, you didnot get EPS amount. You can get it simply by submitting 10C and related documents.

    I had worked my previous company (Apr '09 - Jun '11) in Madurai. I applied my PF amount two weeks back. Will i get my Pension Fund? (I came to know that PF calculated by Employee Share from my Salary + Employer Share from Company + Pension Fund)

    Because, when i applied the PF amount, msg comes like that only (EE amt: Rs. XXXX; ER amt: Rs XXXX)... Thats why i am asking.... Could you clarify my doubt???

    Yes, if you have filled form 10c and opted for withdrawal of EPS, you will get the EPS share too.
