EPFO is likely to cut interest rate on provident fund deposits for 2017-18

NEW DELHI: Retirement fund body EPFO may lower interest rate on provident fund deposits this fiscal compared to 8.65 per cent provided to its 4.5 crore members for 2016-17, a labour ministry official said.

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) is likely to cut interest rate on the grounds that it is directly crediting exchange trade funds (ETF) units into provident fund accounts and lower yields on other investments, particularly bonds.

PFRDA does not ever call for any sum for release of funds to any individual from their Permanent Retirement Account (PRAN) : Public Notice

with 0 Comment

PFRDA does not ever call for any sum for release of funds to any individual from their Permanent Retirement Account (PRAN) : Public Notice 

Public Notice

It has come to notice that some persons are demanding large sums of money by calling general public with a promise to release funds stated to be lying under NPS/ PFRDA. It has also come to our notice that some persons actually believing such claims are willing to pay large sums (about Rs.29,999) to such elements. This is to inform general public that PFRDA is a Regulatory Body and does not ever call for any sum for release of funds to any individual from their Permanent Retirement Account (PRAN) maintained with the Central Record keeping Agency. It is also informed that PFRDA has appointed entities such as Points of Presence. Aggregators etc. which are banks and non banking financial companies which are authorized to interact with subscribers for a prescribed fee which is much less than what is being asked for by the fraudsters.

PLEASE BEWARE, PFRDA NEVER SENDS ANY EMAIL/ MESSAGE PROMISING LARGE SUMS FOR PAYMENT OF FEE/ CHARGE. ANY SUCH COMMUNICATION IS SENT WITH THE INTENTION TO DEFRAUD YOU, INFORM POLICE IMMEDIATELY.

In case any person/ entity calls you with the promise to pay large sums from PFRDA/NPS, you are advised to:

i. Not to believe any caller/email letter promising to release funds from PFRDA/NPS;

A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents.

Office Memorandum

Subject: Inviting comments on the definition of "Operational Staff” which would be eligible for Overtime Allowance

As per the Dept. of Expenditure’s Resolution No. 11-1/ 2016-IC dated 06.07.2017, following is the decision of Government on Overtime Allowance (OTA):

Ministries/ Departments to prepare a list of those staff coming under the category of ’Operational Staff’. Rates of Overtime Allowance not be revised upwards”.

Further it has been clarified by the Dept. of Expenditure that the Government has decided that given the rise in the pay over the years, the recommendations of the 7th CPC to discontinue OTA for categories other than Operational Staff and industrial employees who are governed by statutory provisions may be accepted.

2. Accordingly, it has been decided to implement the aforesaid decision of the Government on Overtime Allowance across all the Ministries / Departments and attached and subordinate office of the Government of India.

3. However, this Department has been receiving queries from various Deptts. as to which staff would be covered under the term ”Operational”. Thus it appears that there is a lack of clarity as to what constitutes Operational Staff. In pursuance of decision taken on the recommendations of the 7th CPC relating to OTA, a broad definition has been attempted in order to assist in identification of operational Staff.

Definition: "All non-ministerial non-gazetted staff directly involved in smooth operation of the office including those tasked with operation of some electrical or mechanical equipment.”

4. Inputs and suggestions are requested from all Ministries / Departments taking into account the specific peculiar requirements of staff under each of them keeping in View the content of work being performed by them. The inputs / suggestions may be kindly sent to the undersigned on mail id: sandeep.saxena@nic.in within 15 days of the issue of this O.M.
