Aadhaar number treated as PF number for all coal mine workers in India : Commissioner

Hyderabad, Apr 21 (UNI) Coal Mines Provident Fund Organisation (CMPFO) Commissioner B K Panda today said that the Aadhar card number will be treated as the Provident fund number for all the workers engaged in mines across the country.
Addressing at a press conference, Panda said that any employee can access the CMPFO website through his or her aadhaar number and get related details.
The decision was taken to treat Aaadhar card as PF number for coal mine workers working in Government and Private across the country to bring transparency in coal mines provided fund, the Commissioner said and adding that out of 10.5 lakh members , 4.64 lakh are live members and 4.71 lakh are pensioners.
''We are organizing an awareness-cum-registration camp for submission of biometric life certificate of pensioners at CMPFO centres across the country and as part of it, we have already conducted such camps at Dhanbad and Asanol (Bengal) for coal mine pensioners.
''Such camps would also be conducted at Bhupapally and Kothagudem in Telangana soon for submission of biometric life certificates of pensioners, he said that there is no separate data of government and private coal mine workers.
''At camps , Aadhaar number seeding with UANs would be carried,'' he said, adding that out of 4.71 lakh pensions, biometric life certificates were issued to 1.95 lakh pensioners at the campus so far.
Now onwards the pensioners will not have to submit their life certificates by being personally present at banks in November every year any more as the process has been digitised. Instead they have to register their Aadhaar numbers and provide their biometrics like a finger print and authenticate themselves at CMPFO.
A successful authentication generates the digital life certificate, which the pension disbursing agency can access online.
With the new arrangement, there is no need for gazeeted officer attestation for submission of life certificate by the pensioners,as it has become digitised," said Panda.
The pensioners would also have to submit the Aadhaar number of their spouses so that the pension could be continued even after their death.
''We are also planning to create separate portal of pensioners,'' he added.
When asked about any unclaimed amount with CMPFO, the Commissioner said “ so far not identified”.
