Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO)
The Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) is soon going to deposit the Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) interest in the accounts of about 6 crore customers. EPFO has confirmed in a tweet. The EPFO, while responding to the queries posted by the subscribers, said that the process of crediting the interest is in the pipeline and very soon it can be seen in their account.
EPFO said in a tweet that whenever interest is deposited, it will be paid in full. There will be no loss of interest. Please be patient. Let us tell you that EPFO can soon deposit 8.5 percent EPF interest. The retirement fund regulatory body kept the EPF interest rate unchanged for the financial year 2020-21.
Lowest interest rate in 7 years
After the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, EPFO reduced the PF interest rate to 8.5 percent in March 2020. This is the lowest interest rate in the last 7 years. In the financial year 2018-19, the interest rate was 8.65 percent. However, in the financial year 2017-18, it was only 8.55 percent. For the financial year 2019-20, it is 8.5 percent.
