The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation's apex decision making body, Central Board of Trustees (CBT), will meet on December 9 to consider organisational restructuring which includes promotions and creating new post across all cadres.

"At present, the EPFO has about 24,000 sanctioned staff to run it 123 offices across the country divided into 10 zones. There is shortfall of 6,000 as these vacancies are yet to be filled," a senior Labour Ministry official said.

"With the CBT considering restructuring plan next week, the number of sanctioned post will further go up. Thus the body would have to fill these thousands of posts to meet the expectations of its over five crore subscribers and 50 lakh pensioners," he said.

The committed appointed by the EPFO to review and suggest measures for restructuring of cadres in the body has recommended creating posts based on the number subscribers handled by various departments.
