The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) on April 15, 2020, has extended the due date of payment of contributions, administrative charges and inspection charges. Due to the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the authority has decided to allow grace period of 30 days that is from April 14, 2020 to May 15, 2020, for filing of Electronic Challan Cum Return (ECR) to the employers of those establishments which have disbursed the wages for March, 2020 to their employees.

The employers need to file ECR for the wage month of March 2020 on or before May 15, 2020 by declaring actual date of disbursement of wages for March 2020 in the column of ‘Salary disbursal date’ in the ECR and remit the contributions and inspection charges on or before May 15, 2020.
