What is Employee’s Provident Fund Organization?

Most of us are already aware of mainstream government exams like UPSC, SSC, SBI-PO, RBI Grade-B Exam, and so on and so forth. However, we are not aware of the exams conducted by EPFO. We don’t even know what EPFO is in the first place. So before we begin to discuss about the important details of the exam, let’s take a look at what EPFO is.

EPFO, or Employee’s Provident Fund Organization is a government regulatory body. It functions under the administrative control of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India. The EPFO oversees and maintains the Employee’s Provident Fund that we already know about.

(Employee’s Provident Fund is a retirement benefit scheme that is available to all salaried employees. This means that if you get selected, you will work in an organization that works in the business of managing and overseeing Employee’s Provident Fund.)
