Interest

  1.

Provided that, if the rate of interest determined for a year is less than 4
per cent, all existing subscribers to the Fund in the year preceding that for which the rate has for the first time been fixed at less than 4 per cent, shall be allowed interest at 4 per cent.

  1. Interest shall be credited with effect from last day in each year in the following manner : —
  2. on the amount at the credit of a subscriber on the list day of the preceding year, lest any sums withdrawn during the current year-interest for twelve months ;
  3. on sums withdrawn during the current year—interest from the beginning of the current year up to the last day of the month preceding the month of withdrawal;
  4. on all sums credited to the subscriber’s account after the last day of the preceding year- interest from the date of deposit up to the end of the current year ;
  5. the total amount of interest shall be rounded to the nearest whole rupee, fifty paisa counting as the next higher rupee:

Provided that when the amount standing at the credit of a subscriber has become payable, interest shall thereupon be credited under this sub-rule in respect only of the period from the beginning of the current year or from the date of deposit, as the case may be, up to the date on which the amount standing at the credit of the subscriber became payable.

  1. In this rule, the date of deposit shall, in the case of a recovery from emoluments, be deemed to be the first day of the month in which it is recovered; and in the case of an amount forwarded by the subscriber, shall be deemed to be the first day of the month of receipt if it is received by the Account Officer before the fifth day of that month, but if it is received on or after the fifth day of that month ,the first day of the next succeeding month.
  2. In addition to any amount to be paid under rules 29, 30 or 31, interest thereon up to the end of the month preceding that in which the payment is made [ ] shall be payable to the person to whom such amount is to be paid :

Provided that where the Account Officer, has intimated to that person (or his agent) a date on which be is prepared to make payment in cash, or has posted a cheque in payment to that person, interest shall be payable only up to the end of the month preceding the date so intimated, or the date of posting the cheque, as the case may be:

[Provided further that if the person claiming the payment does not send an application in that behalf within six months of the date on which the amount standing at credit of the subscriber has become payable under Rule :29, interest shall be payable upto the end of sixth month after the month in which the amount became payable.

[Note:—Where the payment of the accumulations in the fund or any part thereof standing to the credit of a subscriber is delayed for administrative reasons (such as accounting for the missing credits, transfer of account from one audit office to another audit office or other similar reasons) interest on the accumulations or, as the case may be, the part thereof shall be payable upto the end of the month preceding that in which the payment of the accumulations or any part thereof is made.]

Government derision.—A question has been raised as to what course should be adopted in the case of a subscriber who intimates his intention to forego interest already accrued on his deposits in the Provident Fund. As the relevant rules did not provide for any such contingency, the matter has been considered by the Government of Pakistan and it has been decided that there is no objection to the interest in such cases being withheld and credited to Government revenues, on the written intimation of the subscriber concerned.

The interest already credited to the subscriber’s account in such cases should be re adjusted by debit to his Provident Fund Account and contra credit to the head [“600 Transfer Payments—610 Interest-616 Others’) or [“1100 Income from Property and Enterprise—1130 Interest—1139 Others”] according as the amount of interest was originally credited to the subscriber’s account during the current year or previous year.

Government decision.—A question was raised as to how the rate of interest should be allowed on current accounts as well as in the case of final payment of Provident Funds. It has been decided that in the case of final payment of Provident Fund Accounts, the Accounts Officer should not calculate and pay interest for the year for which the rate of interest has not actually beep intimated by the Government and that the residual payment may be allowed later on as and when the orders regarding the fixation of rate of interest for that year are issued by the Government.

As regards the current accounts, the interest for the year should be calculated and added to the accounts as and when the rate of interest for the year has been announced by the Government.

Government decisions. —

It was held that as the payment of ‘dower’ was a necessary element in Muslim marriage and either before or simultaneously with the ‘nikah’ ceremony, the husband binds himself down in the presence of the witnesses to make this payment whether it is prompt or deferred, the liability is incurred with the marriage. It has, therefore, been decided that temporary advance may be allowed to a subscriber from his General Provident Fund for the payment of ‘dower’ subject to the following conditions :—
  2. The official drawing the advance shall produce evidence within one month of the drawal of the advance that he had actually paid the ‘dower’, failing which the advance shall be recovered in lump sum.

Government decision.—A question has been raised as to what procedure should be followed in the case of those Government servants, who are posted in Pakistan Missions abroad and desire to withdraw amount from their Provident Fund for payment of premia to Insurance Companies located in Pakistan. It has been decided in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General that the following procedure may be followed in the case of non-gazetted staff:—

The application regarding the withdrawal of money from Provident Fund for payment of insurance premia may be made by the Government servants who concerned to their administrative Ministry, as and when the premium falls due. The administrative Ministry, will ask the A.G.P.R. to issue necessary authority for the withdrawl of the amount equal to or less than the insurance premia payable by the Government servants concerned according to the balance available in the Provident Fund as the case may be. The applicant should also execute a power of attorney in favour of some one in Pakistan who will present the premium notice from the Insurance Company to the administrative Ministry concerned which will then submit the bill for the for the withdrawl of the amount to the A.G.P.R. On receipt of the amount from the A.G.P.R. the administrative Ministry would disburse the amount to the holder of the power of attorney, who will make payment to the Insurance Company concerned in Pakistan, and furnish the necessary receipt for the same to the administrative Ministry.

As for the Government servants who posted abroad, no particular procedure appears necessary in their case. Being their own drawing and Disbursing officer, such Government servants can draw the amounts of their premia from their Fund Accounts through their bankers in Pakistan who can make payments to the Insurance Companies concerned.

(See Rule 31)

  2. When a nominee is a dependant of the subscriber as defined in clause (c) of section 2 of the Provident Funds. Act. I925, the amount vests, in such nominee under sub-section (2) of section 3 of the act.
  3. When the subscriber leaves no family and no nomination made by him in accordance with the provisions of rule 8 subsists, or if such nomination relates only to part of the amount standing to his credit in the Fund, the relevant provisions of clause (b) and of sub-clause (ii) of clause (c) of sub-section (1)
    of section 4 of the Provident Funds Act, 1925, are applicable to amount or the part thereof to which the nomination, does not relate.

APPENDIX C

COPY OF LETTER No. F. 22 (30-R. II/36, dated the 5th January, 1937 FROM THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT TO ALL ACCOUNTS OFFICES RAISED NOMINATIONS

Subject: —
Section 5 (1) of the Provident Funds
Act. 1925.

I am directed to stale for your information that the following questions has been raised with regard to the application of section 5 (1) of the Provident Funds Act, 1925 to nominations under rules regulating the various Provident Funds

  1. Whether the provision in rule 26 of the State Railway Provident Fund Rules to the effect that on the marriage or remarriage of a subscriber who is not a Hindu. Mohammedan, Buddhist or other person exempted from the operation of the Indian Succession Act, any nomination already made by him shall forthwith become null and void, is ineffective as contravening section 5 (1) of the Provident Funds Act.
  2. Whether a nomination made under one set of rules of a Provident Fund become invalid under a later set of rules, if not revised as required by the later set of rules.
  3. As it is necessary that the correct position with regard to nominations made under section 5 (1) of the Provident Funds Act should be explained I am directed to say that the position is that section 5 (1) does not itself provide for nominations to be made, and that it does not itself create any right in favour of the nominee. It merely gives protection and force to a nomination made in accordance with the rules of a Provident Fund. If, therefore, a
    rule exists any Provident Fund Rules rendering nominations invalid on marriage or remarriage, nominations (even if valid when made) will become ineffective if subscribers marry or remarry and ill not be nominations to which the protection of section 5 (1) of the Act could extend There thus no question of any provision such as that referred to at paragraph 1(1) above being in inflict with the Act.

As regards the question in paragraph 1 (2) above, a nomination under section a (1) of the Act must also not only be in accordance with the rules (as they may stand when it is made), but it must continue to be in accordance with the rules (as they may stand, amended or altered, from time to time). The words “duly, made in accordance with the rules of the Fund” occurring in the section are significant and in view of these words the position is that a nomination once made in accordance with the rules might lose its validity, if the rules are subsequently altered or amended. A nomination made under one set of rules may thus become invalid under another set of rules if not revised as required by the later set of rules and so loses benefit of section 5(1) of the Act.
