EPFO Lowers Interest Rate To 8.55 % Lowest In Five Years

Retirement fund body EPFO today lowered the rate of interest on employees provident fund to 8.55 per cent for its over 6-crore subscribers for 2017-18, from 8.65 per cent in the previous fiscal.
“It is difficult to evaluate about future in view of present economic scenario. We paid 8.65 per cent last fiscal, which left a surplus of Rs 695 crore. This year, we have decided to recommend 8.55 per cent for 2017-18, which will leave a surplus of Rs 586 crore,” Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar told reporter after the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation’s (EPFO) trustees meet.
The deduction in the interest rate is lowest in five years.
Gangwar, who also heads EPFO’s apex decision making body Central Board of Trustees (CBT), said he expects the finance ministry to give concurrence to the 8.55 per cent rate of interest decided today at the CBT meeting.
After the CBT’s decision on interest rate, the proposal is vetted by the finance ministry. Once approved by the finance ministry, the rate of interest is credited into subscribers’ account.
Gangwar expressed hope that the trade unions will agree to the decision of providing 8.55 per cent rate of interest.
The minister also said the EPFO has liquidated portion of its investments in the exchange traded funds (ETFs) to bridge the gap to provide 8.55 per cent interest this fiscal.
He said the EPFO received 8 per cent returns on its bond investments but it is able to pay 8.55 per cent rate because it has sold some of its investments in ETFs.
He explained that it is higher than 7.6 per cent provided to General Provident Fund and Public Provident Fund subscribers.
Gangwar further said the ETF investments have fetched a return of 20.65 per cent so far, and in the months of January and February this year, the EPFO has sold Rs 3,700 crore ETFs which earned a return of Rs 1,011 crore.
The EPFO has invested around Rs 44,000 crore so far in the ETFs. It had started investing in ETFs in August 2015.
On the administrative charges, he said the CBT has decided to reduce the administrative charges from 0.65 per cent to 0.50 per cent of total wages which are paid by employers.
The minister also said the trust has also decided to reduce the workers threshold for coverage under the EPFO schemes to 10 from existing 20.
At present, all those units employing 20 or more employees are mandatorily covered under the social security schemes run by the EPFO.
He expressed hopes that reduction in employees threshold could help increase the EPFO subscribers’ base from existing 6 crore to even 9 crore.
Gangwar also assured that the required amendment in the Employees’ Provident Fund & Miscellaneous Provisions Act would be done to implement the decision to reduce employees threshold.
Earlier, the CBT has also taken this decision, but it could not be implement because of long pending amendment in the Act.
On this occasion, the minister also launched the EPFO’s UAN-AADHAAR linking facility for the convenience of the members using EPFO link in UMANG mobile application. This is in addition to existing facility on the website of the EPFO.

ATMs Can Now Verify Transactions Via Aadhaar

The ‘dumb’ ATM is set to turn smart. Banks are replacing the decades-old cash dispensers with new digital machines that have fixed menu options, are compact and come with a large 15-inch tablet-like multi-touch screen. These ‘smart’ ATMs can perform Aadhaar -based biometric authentication, and all other transactions via net banking as against merely dispensing cash.
After the lull caused by demonetisation, ATM maker NCR is seeing a resurgence of demand as lenders are replacing some of the old Windows XP machines rather than upgrade them. It has been six years since the ATM network crossed the 1-lakh mark and now most of the machines are due for an upgrade. Banks are keen on upgrades as the new machines with tablet screens are now available at Rs 3 lakh each — almost half their predecessors’ price.
“With our new machine — the SelfServ series — we are positioning the ATM as an extension of the bank’s digital channel. In digital banking, the screen is a valuable real estate for banks and can be customised for each customer,” said NCR India MD Navroze Dastur. He added that the company is deploying the new machines on behalf of banks and white-label ATM firms.
NCR, which accounts for almost half of the ATMs in India, has been able to bring down the price of machines, mainly due to its ‘Make in India’ strategy. Chennai is the manufacturing hub for the ATM maker, with a research and development centre in Hyderabad.
The average amount of cash withdrawn per ATM each day has risen to Rs 4.2 lakh in December 2017 from Rs 4.1 lakh in October 2016 — just before demonetisation. Although the number of ATMs in India has gone up only marginally to over 2 lakh, NCR has sold over 24,000 ATMs as banks replaced old machines.

SBI Posts First Q3 Loss In 17 Years; Treasury Income Falls (Hindi Version Included)

This is first time the SBI has posted a quarterly loss since January-March 1999, when it recorded a loss of ₹115 crore.

Country’s largest lender, State Bank of India (SBI) today shook the investors by reporting a major loss of Rs 2,416 crore in the October-December 2017 quarter, its first Q3 loss in last 17 years.
The SBI attributed the poor performance to losses in treasury operations at about Rs 2,000 crore due to hardening of bond yields, high provisions of Rs 17,760 crore towards substantial corporate loans slipping into bad loans and a significant hit in investment depreciation of Rs 4,044 crore.
This is first time the SBI has posted a quarterly loss since January-March 1999, when it recorded a loss of ₹115 crore.
The SBI had to classify ₹25,830 crore worth of loans as non-performing this quarter. The Reserve Bank of India conducts an annual inspection of banks’ books and directs banks to make additional provision where the regulator thinks it necessary.
“The net loss has to be viewed with hardening of bond yields, treasury losses, provisions for payments of employees of Rs 700 crore for two months…,” said Chairman Rajnish Kumar in a post-results press conference.
He added that SBI will raise Rs 20,000 crore in the next financial year without government subscription to it and focus on rebalancing the portfolio towards retail and SME (small and medium sector enterprise) growth after a muted corporate book.
A substantial part of loans that slipped into NPAs stood at Rs 25,836 crore, up from Rs 9,026 crore in Q2, of which 90 percent was under the stressed category. The watchlist of such loans or the potential bad loans declined from Rs 21,288 crore as on September 2017 to Rs 10,341 crore at the end of December.
“The current quarter was disappointing,” SBI chairman Rajnish Kumar said in the post earnings media interaction. “But every cloud has a silver lining.”
He said most of the recognition of bad loans had been made and the resolution process was underway. SBI, he said, was hopeful of presenting a better financial performance in the next fiscal year.
On being asked if SBI’s performance narrates the functioning of the economy, Kumar said, “You can’t just economy’s performance for 90 days….Need a longer horizon to judge the state of the economy and a large organization like SBI.”
Asked about the Jan.-March quarter, he said, “I do not want to sound optimistic but I am not pessimistic also. But, in 45 days no miracle can happen.”

स्टेट बैंक समूह को चालू वित्त वर्ष की तीसरी तिमाही में बड़ा नुकसान हुआ है। इसके अलावा बैंक का एनपीए भी बढ़कर करीब 2 लाख करोड़ रुपये हो गया है। शुक्रवार को जारी आंकड़ों के मुताबिक, चालू वित्त वर्ष की तीसरी तिमाही में 1,886.6 करोड़ रुपये का शुद्ध नुकसान हुआ है। पिछले वित्त वर्ष में इसी तिमाही में समूह को 2,152 करोड़ रुपये का शुद्ध लाभ हुआ था।

परिणाम की घोषणा के बाद बैंक के चेयरमैन रजनीश कुमार ने प्रेस कॉन्फ्रेंस में कहा कि शुद्ध घाटा मुख्य रूप से बॉन्ड्स की सख्ती की वजह से है।
