1. succession certificate has to be obtained from Delhi being the last residing address of your father. 2. Try to approach the office where your father was working to know the employee PF code provided to your father. 3. Approach the Employees' Provident Fund Organization, Dehradun where the PF amount/account of your father is being maintained. 4. take the Death certificate of your father along with you.
Queries: 1. At the time of expiry of your father whether he was in service or not? 2. Who received other benefits like gratuity, Leave encashment (if any) etc.
Note: your already late so kindly initiate all the process as soon as possible.
