These are also known as social security benefits that are governed and managed by Government bodies as per rules and regulations laid down and understood by all employers applicable by these Acts.

Karma Management Global Consulting Solutions Pvt Ltd does a lot of work on PF & ESI and especially under the PF act, there are a lot of chapters and sections, and sub-sections against which obligations are required to be fulfilled by employers and employees.  Karma Management takes care of all the obligations for the establishments as well as members of the Fund.

 In this instance, it is related to EDLI – that is assurance benefits payable to a member on the death of the member.  Since there have been a lot of complaints about delay in the payment of assurance benefits on death, EPFO has now directed its officers to make settlement of all such claims as per provisions of the scheme and not to harass the family members.  It has clarified how the provisions of the scheme are to be applied even when an employee member remains on leave without wages or is absent for any other reason and expired during the period.
