(2) Incorrect UAN mentioned in ECR/Double TRRN for the same month – the EPFO has provided Application Version 5.36 for the field offices to reject ECRs or adjust amount or refund the amount to the employer.
(3) Double Payment made by employer for same month using different TRRN/ Double Payment paid by employer against same TRRN and wants to get refund – the EPFO has stated that the Unified portal has already taken steps to refund the amount to the employer directly to their bank account.
(4) To refund the amount against amount paid in misc. option – the EPFO has stated that currently misc. payments and receipts are being managed by field office manually.
