Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) began crediting interest to provident fund (PF) accounts last month. The rate of interest on the PF account investment is 8.1% for the financial year 2021-22.

The PF interest rate is decided every year by EPFO’s Central Board of Trustees (CBT) in consultation with the Ministry of Finance. This year, the interest rate was announced in June by the EPFO
