FinMin approves EPF interest rate at 8.7%; trade unions threaten protest 26.4.2016 DNA: Popular News
The Finance and Labour ministries appeared to be locked in a fight on Monday, over the rate of interest on EPF deposits for 2015-16 with the former pegging it at 8.7%, 10 basis points lower than what was decided by the EPFO. The Labour Ministry is now planning to seek a review of the Finance Ministry's decision after trade unions, including the RSS-backed Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh attacked the lowering of the rate. Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya told the Lok Sabha, "The (EPFO's apex decision-making body) CBT, at its meeting held in February 2016, had proposed an interim rate of interest at 8.8% to be credited to the accounts of EPF subscribers for 2015-16. The Finance Ministry has, however, ratified an interest rate of 8.7%." The top brass of the Labour Ministry, including Dattatreya, went into a huddle and discussed the issue for more than two hours. Labour Ministry sources said the Ministry will seek review of the Finance Ministry's decision as EPFO has sufficient income in 2015-16 to pay higher ...
