The CBT takes into account a number of factors, including the performance of the economy, the rate of inflation, and the interest rates offered by other financial instruments, when setting the interest rate on EPF.

Here are some details about the interest rate on EPF for 2022-23:

  • The interest rate will be applicable to EPF deposits made between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2023.
  • The interest rate will be credited to the EPF accounts of subscribers in the month of July 2023.
  • The interest rate of 8.15% is the highest in the last four years. The interest rate on EPF was 8.5% in 2019-20, 8.65% in 2020-21, and 8.10% in 2021-22.

The government's approval of an 8.15% interest rate on EPF is a positive development. It will help to boost the retirement savings of millions of EPF subscribers.
