Some of the facilities like settlement of PF withdrawal claims by onlinemeans, can be provided to all those members whose PF accounts are seeded with Aadhaar number. Since the biometric details of the subscribers are also linked in the process, it allows for smooth financial transactions which were once considered tedious.
