EPFO interest credit date:
The wait for 6.5 crore PF account holders in the country may end soon. The people of the country were expecting the EPFO interest money to be deposited in their account even before Budget 2023. But Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman definitely announced the change in PF rules in her budget speech.
After the announcement of changes in the rules of PF, now soon the interest money received on the amount deposited in PF can come. Let us know on which day the government will transfer the interest money to the account of PF account holders.
When will EPFO interest money come?
During the General Budget 2023 presented on February 1, changes in the rules regarding PF were announced. After the announcement of the change in the rules regarding PF, the expectation of the account holders has increased again that soon the interest money received on the amount deposited in PF for the financial year 2022-23 can come into their account.
According to media reports, the government can put the money into the government’s account before Holi. The government of India and related organizations will soon announce the exact official date of EPFO interest money.
Reason for delay in getting EPFO interest money!
The biggest reason for the transfer of interest money in the account is that it has to go through many stages before sending the money. Let us tell you that from this financial year, the government will transfer money to the accounts of 7 crore PF account holders at an interest rate of 8.1 percent. After the approval of the Ministry of Finance, even after the transfer of interest, money is transferred to the accounts after raising funds.
