Over five crore provident fund subscribers governed by the EPFO will get 8.75 per cent interest on their deposits for the current fiscal.

The Finance Ministry has ratified the rate for 2014-15, after a decision was taken to retain the interest payout at this level by the Central Board of Trustees of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation, sources said.

Following the ratification by the Finance Ministry, the decision would now be notified by the Labour Ministry as also by the Income Tax Department.
