Full PF Interest Likely to be Credited After Diwali - Steps to Check PF Balance

EPFO subscribers are waiting for the deposit of interest in their PF amounts, media reports said the amount might get credited into the account of the subscribers by the end of this month. So, if you have not got the EPF interest amount credited to your account so far, you are likely to get it just after

The government in June approved a four-decade-low interest rate of 8.1 per cent on employee provident fund (EPF) deposits for 2021-22. The 8.1 per cent EPF interest rate is the lowest since 1977-78, when it stood at 8 per cent. The EPFO has over 65 million members and it managed assets worth Rs 15.7 lakh crore last year.

Earlier this month, the finance ministry said the EPF interest amount is being credited into the accounts of employees’ provident fund (EPF) subscribers, and in case it was not visible in the statements, it was because the EPFO software is being upgraded. The ministry said that there is no loss of interest amount for any subscriber.

“There is no loss of interest for any subscriber. The interest is being credited in the accounts of all EPF subscribers. However, that is not visible in the statements in view of a software upgrade being implemented by EPFO to account for change in the tax incidence," the finance ministry had said in a tweet.

The Central Board of Trustees (CBT) had in March 2021 decided an 8.5 per cent interest rate on EPF deposits for 2020-21. The CBT is a tripartite body of the EPFO involving government, workers and employers’ representatives and the decision of CBT is binding on EPFO. It is headed by the labour minister.

It was ratified by the finance ministry in October 2021. Thereafter, the EPFO issued directions to field offices to credit the interest income at 8.5 per cent for 2020-21 into the subscribers’ account.

The RBI has increased the repo rate by 50 basis points to 5.9 per cent, the fourth-time hike in a row. In the past four subsequent monetary policy reviews since May this year, the RBI’s rate-setting panel has raised 190 basis points in total. The repo rate is the interest rate at which the RBI lends to the commercial bank.
