Contributory Provident Fund Rules (India ), 1962: The CPF Rules are applicable to every non-pensionable servant of the Government belonging to any of the services under the control of the President. A subscriber, at the time of joining the Fund is required to make a nomination in the prescribed form conferring on one or more persons the right to receive the amount that may stand to his credit in the Fund in the event of his death, before that amount has become payable or having become payable has not been paid.
A subscriber shall subscribe monthly to the Fund when on duty or foreign service but not during a period of suspension. Rates of subscription shall not be less than 10% of the emoluments and not more than his emoluments. The employer’s contribution at that percentage prescribed by the Government will be credited to the subscriber’s account and this is presently 10%. Rate of interest, at present, is 12% compounded annually. The Rules provide for drawal of advances / withdrawals from the CPF for specific purposes. As in GPF Rules, the CPF Rules also provide for Deposit linked Insurance Revised Scheme.
Earlier, the Government was giving option to CPF subscribers to switch over from CPF Scheme to GPF Scheme (Pension Scheme). The last such option was allowed based on the recommendations of Fourth CPC. As a number of options have already been allowed as and when substantial improvement were made in the pension scheme and the practical difficulties involved in retrieval of records and adjustments to be made, demand for further option was not recommended by the Fifth CPC and there is no proposal with the Government to consider any further change in options.
