1-Encouraging firms to enrol their workers under schemes run by retirement fund body Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), a 3-month campaign has been launched beginning January 1 where employers will get amnesty and pay just Re 1 as damages for not registering their employees earlier. To be called 'Enrollment and Establishment coverage campaign 2017', EPFO will hold meetings with the stakeholders -- employer and employee associations and states. The campaign will give wide publicity to the benefits the Pradhan Mantri Rojgar Protsahan Yojana (PMRPY) and the Pradhan Mantri Paridhan Rojgar Protsahan Yojana (PMPRPY).

Besides, online enrolment facilities for workers will form a key feature of the campaign, an official said. Under the scheme, a three-month window will be provided from January 1 to March 31, 2017. It provides for the nominal levy of damages from the establishment for payment of contribution for the past period. As per the scheme, any employer during the campaign period may send declaration for membership of the employees who were required or entitled to become members of the fund on or after April 1, 2009, but before January 1, 2017, who could not be enrolled for any reason.

In order to have uniform and nominal rate of levy of damages of Re 1 per annum, the government has inserted an enabling provision under para 32(a) of the EPF Scheme 1952 and under para (5) of Employees Pension Scheme, 1995, and para 8-A of EDLI Scheme, 1976.
