The payroll data statement says that the data is provisional as the updating of employees records is a continuous process and gets updated in subsequent months, however, the body stated that the data may include temporary employees, whose contributions may not be continuous for the entire year.

The EPFO manages social security funds of workers in the organized/semi-organized sectors. It also effectively runs three social security scheme Employees’ Provident Fund Scheme 1952, Employees’ Deposit Linked Scheme 1976 (EDLI) and Employees’ Pension Scheme 1995. The body has been managing the accounts of over six crore members and a corpus of over Rs 10 lakh crore.

Soon after the Opposition, during the debate on the no-trust vote, accused the Modi government of failing to create sufficient jobs, the EPFO updated the payroll data on its official portal and will continue to do so.
