EPFO - Finance Ministry has approved 8.65% rate of interest on Employees Provident Fund (EPF) for 2018-19

EPFO - Finance Ministry has approved 8.65% rate of interest on Employees Provident Fund (EPF) for 2018-19

The Finance Ministry has approved 8.65% rate of interest on Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) for 2018-19 as decided by retirement fund body EPFO, benefitting more than 6 crore formal sector workers.

“The Department of Financial Services (DFS), a wing of Finance Ministry, has given its concurrence to Employees Provident Fund Organisation’s (EPFO) decision to provide 8.65% rate of interest for 2018-19 to its subscribers,” a source privy to the development told PTI.

“The DFS has approved the proposal subject to fulfilment of certain conditions related to efficient management of the retirement fund,” the source said further.

Earlier in February, the EPFO’s apex decision making body Central Board of Trustees headed by labour minister Santosh Gangwar had decided to raise the interest rate on EPF to 8.65% for 2018-19, which was the first increase in the last three years.

The interest rate on EPF was hiked to 8.65% for the last fiscal from 8.55% provided in 2017-18. The EPFO had earlier reduced the interest rate in 2016-17 to 8.65% from 8.8% in 2015-16.

After the Finance Ministry concurrence, the Income Tax Department and the Labour Ministry would notify the rate of interest for 2018-19. Thereafter the EPFO would give directions to its over 120 field offices to credit the rate of interest into subscribers’ account and settle their claims accordingly.
According to the EPFO estimates, there would be a surplus of Rs.151.67 crore after providing 8.65 per cent rate of interest for 2018-19 on EPF. There would have been a deficit of Rs.158 crore on providing 8.7 per cent rate of interest in EPF for last fiscal. That is why the body decided to provide 8.65 per cent rate of interest for 2018-19.

The EPFO had provided a five-year low interest rate of 8.55% to its subscribers for 2017-18.
