Employees' Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has made e-nomination mandatory for account holders. Account-holders will not be able to view PF passbook without e-nomination. It was not necessary to do so till now. But, now e-nomination is mandatory to check PF account balance. Till now account holders could easily check PF balance and passbook by visiting the website of Employees' Provident Fund Organization even without e-nomination.
This information has to be given, for e-nomination in the EPF account, the name of the nominee has to be given first. His address and relationship with the account holder has to be mentioned.
