    Has the Government of West Bengal declared the G.P.F rate of interest for 2013-14? If so, then please reply quoting the specific G.O No. along with date. It is becoming a problem to calculate the same for Group-D employees whose G.P.F are maintained in the office itself instead of AGWB.

    What is the Govt order in West Bengal regarding GPF interest rate for 2013-14 ? Central Govt has already declared the rate as 8.7% for 2013-2014…..
