How do I correct the error on the EPF website that says, “Name against UAN does not match with the NAME in Income Tax Department”?

Step 1: First validate your name on the PAN card from Income Tax department website and enter exactly as it is mentioned. It should match with the name printed in Aadhar card. If the name in Income tax department does not match with Aadhar card then you need to apply for name correction in PAN card website. It may take up-to 7–9 days to have it processed and you will geat the PDF from PAN website with the corrected name.

Step 2: Once the name change is done, again verify your name in Income tax portal after a week as it will take sometime to get your name updated in the Income tax department server.

Step 3: After 2 weeks, login to EPFO website and proceed with updating your KYC for PAN card and it will get updated instantly and will go for employer/IT department approval.

Step 4: If you are still unable to get the KYC completed for PAN card then you have to raise a grievance in EPFO Grievance portal to get it rectified.

Again follow Step 3 to update the KYC for PAN card in EPFO website.
