The Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce & Industry in association with Employees Provident Fund Organization, India organized an awareness program on “Introduction of Electronic Challan – Cum - Return (ECR)” on 30th May 2012 at Federation House, Red Hills, Hyderabad. Mr. M. Narayanappa, Regional Provident Fund Commissioner – I, EPFO was the chief guest for this occasion.
Mr. M. Narayanappa said that the Electronic Challan cum Return brings an opportunity for the employers to file their returns online from anywhere anytime with a click of a mouse. The hassles of preparing various monthly and annual paper returns and visiting the EPFO Offices for submitting them has become things of past. The exempted establishments also enjoy the same facility as they are also free from those shackles of various paper returns. EPFO offices are relieved off from manually entering those returns in the system to update the information and making several communications in case of mistakes or deficiencies in the paper returns. The on line returns are uploaded in the system to update the information automatically.
