Update on EPF Pension Option in Higher Wages:

AIGETOA CHQ Representatives along with BSNL representative visited EPFO HQ and met higher level officers in respect of problems faced by BSNL officials due to mandatory uploading of Joint option under para 26(6) of EPF scheme while filing higher option on EPFO portal.

We requested them to settle this problem by way of clarification so that we can opt higher pension within due date. We also handed over BSNL letter dated 10th March 2023 and request them to do the needful on urgent manner.

They told that matter is under active consideration and it will be resolved shortly.
