New Delhi. Crores of PF account holders are waiting for interest on Provident Fund (PF). The financial year 2022-23 (FY23) is about to end and the new financial year 2023-24 (FY22) is about to begin. March has come and till now the interest on PF has not come into the account of the account holders. Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has repeatedly told account holders that it is in the process of sending interest.
It was decided to pay interest at the rate of 8.1 per cent on the PF account for the financial year 2021-22, but it has not yet come into the PF of the employees. Many account holders have complained about this to EPFO on social media. Now EPFO has also given an answer regarding this.
