August 30, 2011

The fundamental policy of the social security has been enshrined in the “Directive Principles of State Policy” of the Indian Constitution. The Article 41 of the Constitution of India  provides that the “State shall, within the limits of its economic capacity and development, make effective provision for securing the right to work, to education and to public assistance in cases of unemployment, old-age, sickness disablement and in other cases of undeserved want”.

In order to fulfill the mandate of social security, the EPF MP Act, 1952 was enacted by Parliament on 05 th March 1952 and came into force with effect from 01 st November, 1952. This enactment was specifically designed for providing an institution for provident funds, Pension funds and deposit linked Insurance funds for the employees working in industries and in other establishments.

In order to provide the social security benefits envisaged under the Employees’ Provident Funds Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1952, the Sub-Regional Office of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization, a statutory organization under Ministry of Labour Employment, Government of India was sanctioned in the year 1977.

With the growth of activities and also with the further industrialization in the area under the jurisdiction, the sub regional office, Meerut was upgraded to the status of the Regional Office with effect from 01.04.2009
