  Kindly clarify Rule 925 (1)

 

Kindly clarify Rule 925 (1) for PF withdrawals . I have booked flat on construction linked plan from a private builder. However the administration has refused for withdrawal stating that the rules provide only for purchase from DDA, State housing bodies, Cooopearatives & IRWO. Kindly clarify whether the rule is really so strict or there are ammendments clarifications or it isa wron interpretation by SR/Finance . The same is being accepted in many Railways. Also the majority of flat purchases are from private builders these days.

Establishment Code means not

Establishment Code means not any code number as you are thinking. It is a book containing rules on various service matters. To know PF balance, you can ask your father or you may see his pay slip in which the PF balance of the employee is shown (S.C.Railway has provided this facility to its employees). Otherwise you may get this information in PF section of Sr.DFM's Office/MAS.
