A. Dear Client,

To address dual employment issues in PF records, contact the Regional PF Commissioner for resolution. A joint declaration form, signed by both employee and employer, is used to correct PF member details. If not resolved, file a complaint through the EPF i-Grievance Management System. If still unresolved, approach the Central Government Industrial Tribunal for relief, as the EPF Appellate Tribunal has been merged with it since May 26, 2017.
