New Delhi. The central government can soon transfer the interest money on the PF account of central employees. According to media reports, the interest money on the PF account can come till August 30. However, no official information has been shared by the EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organization) regarding this. At the same time, last year, the government transferred the interest money on PF at the end of the year.
Let us tell you that more than 6 crore people will get benefit from getting interest on PF. The central government has already announced 8.1 percent interest for PF employees. This is the lowest interest on PF in 40 years. This time the interest is 0.4 percent less than last year (8.5 percent). This rate is at such a low level for the first time since 1977-78.
This time employees are getting interest at the rate of 8.1%. The central government is going to transfer the money of PF interest in the account of the account holders in the financial year 2022.
So much interest can come.
Suppose if you have 10 lakh rupees in your account, then you will get 81,000 rupees as interest. At the same time, if you have Rs 7 lakh in your PF account, then you will get Rs 56,700 as interest. If you have Rs 5 lakh in your PF account, you will get Rs 40,500 as interest. Similarly, if you have Rs 1 lakh in your account, you will get Rs 8,100 as PF interest.
