Government approves 8.7% interest on EPF for 2015-16

The finance ministry has approved 8.7 per cent interest on PF deposits for over 5 crore subscribers of retirement body EPFO, lower than 8.8 per cent decided by the Central Board of Trustees (CBT).

"The (EPFO's apex decision-making body) CBT, at its meeting held in February 2016, has proposed an interim rate of interest at 8.8 per cent to be credited to the accounts of Employees' Provident Fund subscribers for 2015-16. The ministry of finance has, however, ratified an interest rate of 8.7 per cent," labour minister Bandaru Dattatreya said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha on Monday.

This is probably the first time that the finance ministry has not given concurrence to the rate of interest on EPF as decided by CBT, which is headed by the labour minister.

My Postman App launched by DoP not Only introduces residents to their Postman, but also allows them to order Stamps And Envelopes

Gurgaon: There is no need to visit the post office any more. You can now get postage stamps and envelopes delivered at your doorstep.

A new mobile app, launched by the postal department, not only introduces residents to their postman, but also allows them to order stamps and envelopes. Once residents enter their area, the app, called My Postman, throws up the name, number and photo of that area's postman.

"We realised since that fewer people stay at home, they do not get to know their postman unlike earlier. Hence we thought of using technology to introduce customers to their postman," said Umesh Verma, postmaster general, Gurgaon. "Once the customer has the credentials, he can coordinate with the postman while awaiting delivery of important documents like passports," he added.

Along with this, all postmen have been asked to carry smart phones so that they can home deliver stamps and envelopes, which residents can order through the app. The third party app was developed over six months and can be downloaded for free on the Google playstore.
