The Regional Office, Mangalore was established during 2005 after the bifurcation of the erstwhile Karnataka Region. A website for the Region was felt as the increase of computer literacy among the working class has made them more demanding. We therefore made provisions in the website to locate the progress of settlement of claims, part withdrawals and pension. With this the necessity of visiting PF offices get minimized. Provision has also been made to check the balances in the account of the subscribers. To maintain secrecy the account number only has been kept as the required input. The payment status of the establishment and also the position of coverage of the establishments can also be ascertained from the website.
Regional Office Mangalore had already established high standard in the area of service to subscribers. To be specific we are settling about 99% of claims within 20 days of its receipt. We have also issued annual statement of accounts of all subscribers during the last year.
The website also provide some useful information for both employers and employees. It also has a provision for fixing an appointment with the Regional Commissioner and for posting grievances. We request all stake holders to make use of the website to the full extent and give us feed back and suggestions if any. We expect your full support and co-operation.
