    There's a very annoying problem in EPFiGMS.
    The grievance cannot be submitted if description box has more than (approx.) 500 characters while the label says the limit is 5000 characters. On clicking "submit" there is no action or error message.
    I initially thought that it is a temporary problem and kept trying for many days. Today, I experimented by shortening the description and finally the grievance got submitted.
    Also, be careful while typing the password during registration, the validation is not proper. It accepts '!' in the password, but later when you want to see the status of the grievance, the password field will not accept '!'.

    You have stated that you checked your balance in the EPF through this system. I am glad to hear that. Did you get the balance as on 31/3/2010 or as on date say, 05/7/2010 or any other date? I am curious to know that.
