Moreover, two agents, Payone Solutions Systems Limited and Afritech Multi Concept Limited, noted by PenCom have been engaged by PFAs to carry out the DRE and they are authorised to establish data recapture centres. RSA holders are allowed, therefore, to have their data recaptured at such centres if they are unable to visit the offices of their PFAs.
