In yet another initiative to enhance convenience to its subscribers, the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has joined the network of Common Services Centers (CSC) following which EPFO pensioners can submit their digital life certificates via Jeevan Pramaan Patra programme through a large number of CSC networking points.

"A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between EPFO and CSC e-Governance Services India Limited (CSC SPV). The MoU is initially for a period of five years," labour ministry said in a statement.

The move will also help pensioners living in remote areas as they can now avoid cost and inconvenience of travelling down to the EPF offices or their banks for filing paper based life certificate.

"In near future, it is also planned to enable various other online services namely aadhaar seeding with Universal Account Number (UAN), e KYC operated upload and update facility, UAN card related services and online claim related services," it said.

Common Services Centers (CSC) network is one of the largest government approved online service delivery channel in the world. CSC are broadband enabled rural service delivery points established by District e Governance Societies (DeGSs), selected by the state governments for aggregating content and offering relevant government to customers (G2C), business to customers (B2C), business to business (B2B) and other services.
