According to different media reports, due to the low-interest rate on PF, it can be deposited before December. Right now there is a delay in getting the approval of the Finance Ministry. Since, at present, PF is getting the lowest interest in 43 years, it is expected to get approval from the Finance Ministry soon. Interest can be credited to the PF account of EPFO members anytime after getting approval from the Finance Ministry.
Interest money can be received before June 30
According to the report, the government can transfer interest money to PF account holders at any time before the end of next month i.e. before June 30.
