EPF Interest Amount Payment: Only three days are left for the financial year 2022-23 to end. But till now EPFO ​​has not paid interest to many of its subscribers on the funds deposited in their EPF corpus for the financial year 2021-22. For which EPFO ​​account holders are constantly venting their anger on social media. In the 233rd meeting of the Central Board of Trustees, which was chaired by Labor and Employment Minister Bhupendra Yadav, this currency also prevailed. The Labor Minister said that the interest amount has been transferred to the accounts of 99 percent account holders and interest amount will be transferred to the remaining accounts soon. 

For 2021-22  It was decided to pay 8.1 percent interest rate on the hard earned money deposited by the account holders in the EPF account. Which also got approval from the Finance Ministry.

In recent years, there has been a delay in transfer of interest amount to the account of EPF account holders. Last year, the Finance Ministry had tweeted that after the change in the tax structure on the profit from investment in EPF, the software is being upgraded, so many EPF subscribers are not visible in the statement. The Finance Ministry had said that the subscriber leaving EPF or withdrawing money from EPF is being given the full amount along with interest.  In the budget for the financial year 2021-22, tax was imposed on the interest received on depositing more than Rs 2.5 lakh annually in the PF account. For government employees, this limit is Rs 5 lakh per annum. Due to this change in tax rules, the software of EPFO ​​is being upgraded. Due to which there is delay in getting interest.
