Provident Fund Complaints whether can be entertained in consumer forums under CP Act1986 India

Eemployees are covered two kind of provident fund when they are on jobs..that is general provident fund and employee provident fund and from this two all those problems that are related to employee provident funds can be entertained in consumer forums in india as per laws.


So Employee is a Consumer under the Consumer Protection Act
The Regional Provident Fund Commissioner is providing ‘service’ and the subscriber to the Employees Provident Fund scheme can be termed as a ‘consumer’ under the Consumer Protection Act. Also, delay in discharging the money or improper allocation of it can be called a ‘deficiency in service’. This was held in the case of Regional Provident Fund Commissioner v Shiv Kumar Joshi. Inspite of this, the Employee Provident Fund Act has provisions for Dispute Redressal.

Although the Employee provident fund organization has got its own grievance redressal mechanism which speaks that all kinds of complaints related to EPF are to be put first here before going to consumer forums but they are covered under the CP act 1986.
unlawful delay in payment of advance is also a deficiency of service as per consumer laws.There are cases where NCDRC compensated complainants suitable for the defaults.So if you are an employee covered under EPF and your grievance is not redressed by the organization consumer forums can rescue and compensate the tension and losses you suffered.

New SMS service will be launched Orissa High Court soon...

This new SMS service will be launched soon by orissa high court where in lawyers who have filed cases before the high court will be notified about the case status to their registered mobile phones.This is a great move to increase the support services through technology.Once used problems if any will be handled to work out the service smoothly.But the thought behind this is really great which I need should be applied in other courts too.Besides clients or parties who are directly connected with the cases should get this services because many a time because the parties do not get info about their case in time lose the chances of appeal which can be helped by forwarding the same messages to the parties too.
