An Assistant Teacher in our school is scheduled to retire from his service on 30.09.2015. He has discontinued his PF contribution/deduction from July, 2015. Now, he wants to settle his PF Account till September, 2015 as the rate of interest is already declared for the financial year 2015-16. I think it is justified. But as per our HM's view, he is eligible to withdraw PF fund till March, 2015 and the remaining part will be claimed by him after completion of this financial year i.e., 2015-16. Our HM is also unable to justify the reason behind his statement. Anybody could light up in this matter!!!!
