Around 40-50 lakh people across the country may have to wait longer for EPF interest. Due to technical problem, it may take 15-20 days to get interest money in the accounts of these people. The reason behind this is being told that if there is any problem in the EPF account of any person in any company, through software, the interest of the people of that entire institution is not being credited to their accounts. According to a senior official associated with the case, work on software changes is continuing on a war footing. It is expected that within the next 15-20 days the interest amount will also reach the accounts of the survivors.
Additional interest will be
received for the delay. The official said that any delay of days from the period of notification due to technical difficulties will also be credited to the accounts along with the interest of the people. The central government had announced to pay EPF interest for the financial year 2019-20 in the accounts of the people on 31 December 2020, just before the start of the new year.
Lump sums will be
announced by Labor and Employment Minister Santosh Gangwar that people will be with a full interest of 8.5 percent. Earlier the government was preparing to give this amount in two parts. Its first 8.15 per cent was to reach accounts by Diwali last year. The remaining 0.35 per cent was to be given in December. But then it was decided to give the entire amount outright in December itself. There are about six and a half crore EPF accounts in the country to which people contribute.
