DNS Resolution failure

When I use 1.1.1.1/1.0.0.1 as DNS servers, the website “epfindia.gov.in” fails to resolve.

“A” DNS records for epfindia.gov.in, [DNS server 1.1.1.1]:

No A records found for epfindia.gov.in, [DNS server 1.1.1.1].
(invalid Domain or DNS server?) -> DNS request failed: The name server was unable to process this query due to a problem with the name server.

The website resolves fine with other name servers (e.g. 8.8.8.8)
“A” DNS records for epfindia.gov.in [Google DNS servers]:

epfindia.gov.in. 1799 IN A 164.100.160.96

Any pointers why this could be the case?
