The following steps have been taken by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation to recover the outstanding amount:

2.    Appointment of receiver to run the business of the defaulting establishments.

3.    Arrest and detention of defaulter.

4.    Prosecution of defaulters before courts of law.

5.    Levying damages as penalty.

6.    Directing persons from whom any amount is due to the defaulter to pay the same amount against Provident Fund arrear instead of paying to the defaulter.
