EPFO likely to give 8.6% interest in 2012-13
New Delhi: Over 50 million subscribers of the retirement fund body EPFO may get 8.6 percent return on their investment during 2012-13, higher than 8.25 percent provided in the last fiscal.

"The EPFO has worked out 8.6 percent rate of return for the current fiscal. Payment of 8.6 percent interest will not result in any deficit to the organisation," sources said.

The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) had paid 9.5 percent interest in 2010-11, before scaling it down to 8.25 percent in 2011-12 fiscal.

The organisation, sources said, could even pay higher interest of about 9 percent by appropriating returns on Rs 22,000 crore corpus lying in inoperative accounts.

The inoperative accounts are those accounts wherein the contribution has not been received for 36 months. EPFO had last year decided not to credit interest earned from the inoperative accounts.

Under ordinary circumstances the EPFO is expected to announce interest rate at the beginning of the year.

In view of the delay in announcement of interest rate for the current fiscal, the trade unions have been pressing for an early meeting of the Central Board of Trustees (CBT), the highest decision making body of the EPFO, to decide on the interest rate for the current fiscal.
