At present, out of a total of 30.20 lakh PF holders' accounts, there are 5.75 lakh active accounts. Recently, interest has been credited to all these accounts as per the funds deposited in them.

A smooth system is being set up so that the employees do not get in trouble. A three-step online system is being set up to settle PF claims. Even at the office the employees are being paid their dues by settling more claims than the prescribed number.
