News About Bank of India Recurring Deposit

  • Union Protests Against Diverting PF Funds

    A notification issued on March 8th stated that PF deposits that remain unclaimed for 7 years would be diverted to a Senior Citizens Welfare Fund which is a new scheme launched to take better care of our senior citizens. The funds that could be diverted include Employees’ Provident Fund, Public Provident Fund, National Savings Certificates, Post Office Savings Accounts and Post Office Recurring Deposits. As per the EPF Act of 1952, the funds cannot be diverted for any other purpose. Out of a total of 15 crore accounts, 9.23 crore have been deemed inoperative. These accounts have a total deposit of Rs.43,000 crore. These accounts have not seen fresh deposits in at least 3 years. Central Trade Union Leaders protested against this move. However, the Centre may have to rethink this move and forfeit the PF savings. The matter will be taken up with Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister.
