EPF stands for employees’ provident fund which is a type of mandatory pension fund given to employees. A certain amount is deducted from the salary of the employee each month, for the creation of a retirement corpus. The PF account accumulates the contributions made by the employer and the employee, in order to provide a lump sum to the employee at retirement. The employees can make partial withdrawals of their PF account balance in the form of a loan as mandated by the EPFO.
