The regional office of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) in Ambattur has dissuaded EPF members and employers from visiting the office, until further, notice due to COVID-19.

According to a press release, EPF officials have been advised to take measures to restrict the entry of visitors to the office complex and suspend the issuing of visitors’ passes, based on an advisory from the EPFO head office.
