Kolkata: The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) on Wednesday said account details would be available online from July 1.
"You can watch the account balance of your PF online from July 1," Assistant PF Commissioner Kanchan Roy said at an interactive session at Bengal National Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
"This indeed would be a great help to about 5 crore PF subscribers in India," he said.
