Zonal offices and Regional Offices are opened as per the administrative requirement with the approval of Central Board of Trustees, EPF. Norms for opening Sub-Regional Offices & Service centres were devised by National Productivity Council & approved by Executive Committee of Central Board of Trustees, EPF, in its 29th meeting held on 04.12.98. These norms for opening sub-Regional Office and Service Centre are for all over India except Jammu & Kashmir as Employees’ Provident Funds & Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 is not applicable in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
Proposals for opening offices is examined as per norms. In some of the cases norms are relaxed by the Competent Authority keeping in view the interest of the subscribers.
Details of such cases for the last 5 to 6 years are:- Sub-Regional Offices at Yelahanka, Tumkur, Bharuch, Allahabad, Nagercoil, Mysore Road, Udupi, Karimnagar, Siddipet, Sagar, Shimoga, Keonjhar and Belgaum.
Keeping in view the ongoing as well as proposed computerization which envisages “any time – anywhere” service to workers, norms for opening of Sub-Regional Office, Service Center and District Office are being revisited by National Productivity Council.
