UAN EPF Aadhaar Card - Mandatory Linking by EPFO

In early Jan 2017, EPFO (Employee Provident Fund Organization) has come up with new rule mandating the Aadhaar (Aadhar) Card linking for all EPF India members and pensioners by end of Jan 2017 with their UAN.

At this moment, there is not much clarity about the exact procedure to link the EPF UAN with Aadhdar number. For example, can members do it online themselves on UAN Member Portal or they need to compulsory go through their employers. We will update this article once the clarity emerges.
