The UAN is important for all PF related services. The actual utility of UAN lies in seeding of KYCs such as Aadhar, bank account numbers, PAN and mobile numbers of PF members with their respective UANs. When the KYC details of the members are seeded with UAN, the members can get real time information about their PF accounts through mobiles. They can also file claims online.

The regional office in Delhi has taken up this work on a mission mode and all the registered establishments have been intimated about this through letters, emails, SMS and over the phone.

Automated messages are being sent to around 9,000 contributing establishments on daily basis. A special cell has been created in the office for any technical support. Nidhi Singh, regional PF commissioner, Delhi (North), said linking of KYC with UAN is mandatory for all the establishments. Prosecutions shall be lodged against the non-compliant establishments in this regard.
