Employees’ Provident Fund members have been waiting for a long time for the interest amount to be credited to their accounts. There is a big update from EPFO for such customers. The interest money may reach EPFO members’ accounts by July. An official notification from the Finance Ministry may be issued soon regarding this.

It is worth noting that the Central Board of Trustees, the highest decision-making body of EPFO, approved an interest rate of 8.25% for the fiscal year 2024 in February. However, the formal notification from the Finance Ministry is still awaited. According to sources, the delay has been due to the general elections. Now, it is expected that this process will be completed by July.
