Not Yet Received my PF amount
I was working with Syntel India for the period of September 2007-September 2009.
Then, I joined another organization Nomura India.
I had submitted a form for transfer of my EPF amount from Syntel PF account to Nomura PF account.
This request was sent to Syntel India in September 2009 and they submitted the application for transfer of EPF amount on 5th February 2010.
I then left Nomura India in March 2011.
During this time, I made an application request for withdrawal of the amount from EPF account as I was no more working in INDIA after March 2011.
I received my EPF amount for Nomura India account by July 2011. This did not include the EPF amount from Syntel India.
The problem starts from here. Till date, I have not received the amount.
I had approached syntel India again and they had submitted the required Form 10c and Form 19 for withdrawal from the original Syntel EPF account.
This was rejected by EPF stating that the Transfer is already Approved and Payment is under process. This status has not changed from past 4-5 months. No one has received the reason for rejection.
Also, it shows it has been approved to be transferred to an EPF account which is already closed in July 2011.
I have filed a complaint with EPF India but have not received any response.
The organization Syntel India says they are in NO POSITION to help me.
I am not sure whom should I contact and how should I get my money back.
I am not even in INDIA at the moment and government division is increasing the troubles for me.
Please suggest what approach should I take to claim my money which shows it has been transferred to a closed EPF account??
Also, Government division is just so pathetic..Its been close to 2 years now since I have been discussing this and there has been no solution to this problem till date...!!!!
