Retirement fund body EPFO is likely to retain the interest rate on employees' provident fund at 8.55 percent rate for the 2018-19 fiscal for its more than six crore subscribers, a highly-placed source said. "The proposal for providing interest rate for the current fiscal would come up in the meeting of the trustees of Employees' Provident Fund Organisation on February 21," the source said. "The interest rate would be retained at 8.55 percent for the current fiscal as provided in 2017-18 in view of forthcoming LokSabha elections. The EPFO's income projections for the current fiscal would be tabled in the meeting." However, the source did not dismiss completely speculations that interest rate on EPF deposits for this fiscal can be more than 8.55 percent in view of LokSabha elections. The Central Board of Trustees headed by Labour Minister is the apex decision making body of the EPFO which finalises rate of interest on PF deposits for a financial year.
