In Digital India, EPFO's UAN portal out of order; helpless employees left in the lurch
The much touted e-Sewa facility of Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) for universal account number (UAN) holder members is down since past few months. This has left thousands of UAN members in lurch as they are clueless as to whom should they contact to address their grievances. This also raises questions on whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious Digital India programme that aims to turn a lot of government functions completely digital using the Aadhaar number.
 
"My employer is asking to share my PF nomination detail as updated on UAN website from past some months. I am unable to do so as the UAN website https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface is not functional," says Trimukh Hemchandani (name changed).
 
 
Even the toll free contact number 1800118005 provided on the UAN website is always busy. Hemchandani says, "Their helpline number 1800118005 (as updated on https://unifiedportal.epfindia.gov.in/UAN_Services.php) gives 'User Busy' prompt. Owing to this, my PF transfer requests have also been on hold. I have waited and waited patiently from past some months but to no avail."
 
In addition, the contact us page on this portal, designed, developed and hosted by EPFO, shows an error. When we checked, it was showing an error 404 (normally for page not found). However, there is an additional message that “GNOC Team of EPFO” blocked this page. 
 
 
The Organisation, which has over four crore members, has created UAN to provide permanent identity to the PF accounts. In addition, EPFO created a separate portal to allow members access various services and facilities, including downloading of UAN Card and passbook, connect all member IDs to UAN, and file and view transfer claims using the UANs. UAN holder members were even told that they would be able to change their know-your-customer (KYC) information on the UAN portal. However, with the portal becoming inaccessible, all UAN card holders are in lurch.

The new website (Unifiedportal) is down since months now and the authorities concerned seem to be in no hurry to make it functioning again.

I retired on 31.01.2017. Submitted Form 19 and 10 to withdraw my PF amount. After more than 15 days PF Office in Chennai returned the forms stating that I should apply only after a waiting period of two months. Now I am simply waiting for the time to lapse. In the meantime I tried to check my PF amount using my UAN. When I filed a grievance, the reply was not informative. Can you please advice me in this regard?

Does it say that blockheads are handling this issue?. It is strange that we are so advanced in information technology,still they they can't fix such an issue even after 5 months?.

Yes I am also trying since last month and not able to update any data

4G was major driver of data traffic in 2016
4G was the major source of data traffic across the country in 2016, contributing 60 per cent of the incremental payload from 2015 levels, a new report said on Thursday.
 
According to Nokia MBit Index report on mobile broadband performance in India, though 4G coverage is yet to penetrate across all circles, it contributed to 13 per cent of the total data traffic pan-India in a span of year since launch.
 
In metros alone, where the majority of 4G deployments have taken place, the contribution of 4G to data traffic was 26 per cent.
 
"Indian operators will need to explore technologies, such as carrier aggregation, small cells, sectorization, and fiberization, to enhance overall efficiency and increase capacity to meet the growing demands," said Sanjay Malik, Head of India Market, Nokia, in a statement.
 
According to the report, 4G monthly data usage per subscriber was over 1,400MB compared to nearly 850MB per subscriber for 3G, primarily driven by faster download speeds over 4G networks and larger screen with higher resolution of 4G devices that accelerated data consumption. 
 
Video and social networking together contribute to 65 per cent to 75 per cent of traffic, communication and social media apps continue to drive engagement in terms of time spent.
 
2G data volumes dipped for the first time in 2016 as compared to the 12 per cent growth it witnessed in 2015, as 2G subscribers continued to migrate, the findings showed.
 
4G-enabled smartphones saw a 2.7 times increase over the last year, while 3G-enabled smartphones witnessed a 1.2 times increase. 
 
In 2016, only 13 per cent of the 4G smartphone users had 4G connections and 35 per cent of the 3G smartphone users had 3G connections, implying a significant growth opportunity for operators. 
 
Uptake of new-age technologies such as Internet-of-things (IoT), evolving concepts such as smart cities, and new devices offering virtual reality experiences will all enhance data usage going forward, the report added.

AT&T pulls out Google ads over offensive content
As the controversy over the ads appearing alongside hate or terrorism videos widens, American telecommunication giant AT&T has decided to pull out its ads from most Google-owned sites.
 
According to a report in Fortune on Wednesday, the British government and major advertisers in Britain have also temporarily ended their campaigns with Google because the search engine cannot prevent ads being put alongside the offensive content.
 
"We are deeply concerned that our ads may have appeared alongside YouTube content promoting terrorism and hate," the report quoted AT&T as saying. 
 
"Until Google can ensure this won't happen again, we are removing our ads from Google's non-search platforms," AT&T added.
 
Earlier this week, Google announced new controls and assured the customers it would end the controversy, but the steps taken so far by the search engine have not convinced the advertisers.
 
"In the end, there's nothing more important to Google than the trust we've built amongst our users, advertisers, creators and publishers," Philipp Schindler, Google's Chief Business Officer, wrote in a blog post. 
 
"Brand safety is an ongoing commitment for us, and we'll continue to listen to your feedback," Schindler added.
 
According to a Google spokeswoman, the search engine has started extensive review of advertising policies.
 
"We have made a public commitment to put in place changes that give brands more control over where their ads appear. We're also raising the bar for our ads policies to further safeguard our advertisers' brands," the spokeswoman was quoted as saying.
 
The controversy started in Britain after ads from the government, schools, businesses, and others started to appear on YouTube videos and Google ad-supported web sites of offensive groups.

EPFO should include name change and other changes online only. And save lot of paper work. Presently all this is manually. Any changes should be digitally attested by employer.
