  2. Hi Guys,
    Spelling of my Father’s name is incorrect in the PF account. I am not getting any option to correct it through Manage -Modify your basic details. It just give the option to change your name , or mobile number and email..No where they have given option to correct Father’s name..

    I have two different PF no.s and UAN given y my office. I want to link both, but that would not be possible until I correct my Father’s name in the initial PF account.

    Can you share screen shots to change father name or correction of spelling ..I would be of great help..
