The submission of the Detailed Periodic Statements took a long time as it was a very big project undertaken by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs for the first time during a difficult period, due to the special conditions created by the coronavirus pandemic. The files were extensively processed and special software was developed for the configuration of DPAs, as until recently the Ministry had not submitted declarations of similar size and content and there was no relevant know-how in its services, the ministry said in a statement and added:
As part of the process, a large number of inspections and cross-checks of the files of PS ERGANI with those of e-EFKA were carried out, in order to identify the insured persons who received the special purpose compensation.
