Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has begun crediting 8.5% interest to its subscribers by the end of December. The labour minister Santosh Gangwar said that, "We had said that it would be our endeavour to provide 8.5 per cent rate of interest on EPF for 2019-20. Out of this, 8.15 per cent has been the debt component and 0.35 per cent is from capital gains of the equity component. We have issued a notification to provide 8.5 per cent rate of interest on EPF for 2019-20. We have also began the process to credit the said rate of interest into subscribers account."
