    The issue is pending with the PF office in Hyderabad, Barkatpur. 1

    I had sent the Form 13 to my ex-employer in Aug 2010 last year and again in Aug 2011. Both the times my ex-employer had submitted the forms to RPFC office but till now I haven't received any communication.

    Under section 4 of the RTI act it is mandatory for every govt office to make pro active discloser of how thy function,what is the time limit for any work,how decision is being carried out.Make your 1st RTI application so strong so that thy cant deny it nd answer it,otherwise if u file a weak RTI application,thy will assume that u dont know much about RTI and will reject or give u half true answers.

    Re: How to file RTI Application for PF Transfer issue

    Please note that the EPFO office is under the Central Government.
    Therefore you have to follow the Central RTI Rules, available in the guide segment:


    As a thumb rule, always follow the RTI rules for the respective government under which the department or office falls. This is irrespective of where that office is located or where the applicant is located.
