decision The UPA government which was claiming to be a pro-worker stopped the interest on inoperative accounts Thinkstock "Now we have decided to credit interest in inoperative accounts There will not be any inoperative accounts" Dattatreya told reporters after the CBT meeting here He also informed that interest on deposits in inoperative accounts will be credited from from April 1 Inoperative accounts are those wherein the contribution has not been received for 36 months EPFO had stopped payment of interest to such accounts from April 1 2011 The move was aimed at discouraging parking of funds with EPFO in these dormant accounts The decision will benefit over nine crore such account holders having total deposit of around Rs 32000 crore When asked about a proposal on enhancing proportion of incremental investments of the EPFO in government securities (G-Sec) from 50 per cent to 65 per cent Labour Secretary Shankar Aggarwal said "It has already been decided by the Ministry of Finance" The Secretary said that the limit of 50 per cent was enhanced as they were getting good offers but unable to invest in such instruments as the limit had been exhuasted "If we get higher returns in G-Secs then we should be allowed to invest more in these instruments" he said further The Board also gave in-principle approval to restructuring of the EPFO as recommended by a sub-committee "We have taken decision regarding (cadre) restructuring of the EPFO There will be a Career Advancement Scheme for over 20000 employees of EPFO They are waiting their due promotions for 19 years" Dattatreya said Dattatreya said that an implementation and anomalies committee has been formed which will look into grievances of employees "The implementation of the scheme will be started within one month and will go very fast A small committee under the Central Provident Fund Commissioner will address all anomalies in a month’s time" he said About the CBT’s decision to provide 88 per cent rate of interest on PF deposits for current fiscal the Labour Secretary said "The decision taken last month at CBT’s meeting at Chennai has been sent to Finance Ministry and their approval is awaited" On the proposal to provide insurance cover to EPFO’s subscribers for three years after cessation of employment he said "The proposal is deferred" The proposal to introduce voluntary retention of EDLI membership to subscribers at reduced rate of contribution for three years after cessation of employment was also on agenda of the CBT meeting today At present the EPFO subscribers get an insurance cover of up to Rs 36 lakh crore under the Employee’s Deposit Linked Insurance (EDLI) Scheme for which their employers contribute 05 per cent of basic wages as premium About the CBT’s decision in September last year to increase maximum sum assured under the scheme from Rs 36 lakh to Rs 6 lakh Aggarwal said "All decision of the CBT are vetted by Law Ministry We will see where it is (status) and it will be implemented" The CBT had also decided in its meeting held in September last year to abolish the condition of continuous employment of 12 months under the current employer for employees to be eligible for insurance benefit under the EDLI scheme On EPFO investments in various instruments the Secretary said "We had allowed to invest 5 per cent in equity Now out of remaining 95 per cent we can invest up to 65 per cent in government securities Thus share of private and public sector bonds will go down correspondingly" The CBT members particularly workers representatives raised the issue of EPFO earning negative returns on investments in exchange traded funds (ETF) Responding to the reservations the Labour Minister said that there would be a review of investments in ETFs made by EPFO since August last year "Labour Minister said that the Finance Audit and Investment Committee of the EPFO will review the investments in the exchange traded funds (ETFs) in view of the sentiments expressed by the CBT members" All India Trade Union Congress Secretary D L Sachdev told PTI He further said "The review of EPFO’s investments in ETFs was listed on the agenda of the CBT meeting today The trustees’ including all workers’ representatives registered their protest against investments in stock markets" EPFO had decided to invest only 5 per cent of its investible deposits in the current fiscal in ETFs which are considered as a more safe bet than pure equity investments An EPFO analysis revealed that the body earned a negative return of 954 per cent on its Rs 5920-crore investment in ETFs since August 2015 Market value of investments of Rs 5920 crore in the ETFs this fiscal was Rs 5355 crore on February 29 2016 as per an analysis of equity investment by EPFO PTI Washington: America’s substantial support for Nato both in money and military aid has long been a source of frustration for US leaders and questioned by some as a throwback to the Cold War era Republican front-runner Donald Trump in interviews this week suggested the US should scale back its role in the alliance nearly seven decades after it was launched in the aftermath of World War II Complaining that America is spending too much money on Nato Trump said that the financial burden has to change Representational image Reuters But as terror attacks ripped through Brussels this week Nato rose again as a rallying point and key player in the expanding fight against Islamic State militants The attacks underscored the need for the US and its European allies to work together to counter threats ranging from groups targeting the West to the growing Russian aggression in the region Created in 1949 Nato has expanded from 16 members at the end of the Cold War to 28 today "Given this attack I think you will see more willingness from Nato nations to join in the coalition in real and practical ways" said James Stravidis the retired Navy admiral who served as Nato’s top military commander in Europe from 2009 to 2013 As an example he said Belgium may look to participate in coalition airstrikes against Islamic State in Iraq or Syria and other nations may step up their contributions of military advisers or special operations forces Trump’s criticism however echoed persistent complaints from some US leaders who balk at bearing as much as 22 percent of the Nato budget "Nato is costing us a fortune and yes we’re protecting Europe but we’re spending a lot of money" Trump told The Washington Post this week "I think the distribution of costs has to be changed I think NATO as a concept is good but it is not as good as it was when it first evolved" And while he did not fully advocate pulling out of the alliance he said the US can’t afford the high price anymore The argument has dogged US military and defense officials for years as they pour millions of dollars of money troops equipment and other infrastructure into Europe There are about 62000 active duty US forces permanently stationed in Europe and several thousand more rotate in and out for short-term deployments for military exercises training and other programs In recent years the Pentagon reduced its permanent troop presence in Europe But as the threats from Russia and the Islamic State grew the military expanded its rotational deployments in a broad effort to reassure European allies and send a message to Russia that threats against Nato allies would not be tolerated The Pentagon has made it clear through the years that while the US bears a heavy financial burden for Nato America remains staunchly committed to its European allies and frequently dependent on them "This has been a debate in the alliance going back 50 years" said Stavridis "The allies will never spend as much as we want them to The trade-off is yes we spend more than they do but they stand with us on these operations" The US he said counted on Nato in Afghanistan where allies provided thousands of troops throughout the warzone And they have done the same in Libya Iraq the Balkans and in the effort to contain piracy off Africa The allies also make up the bulk of the nations involved in the airstrikes and training operations in Iraq and Syria "It’s not perfect but it’s better than the alternative" said Stavridis now dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University He said it makes no sense to drop out of NATO And rather than yelling at the allies about what they won’t do he said the US should help them figure out the ways they can help Evelyn Farkas former US deputy assistant defense secretary said that faced with threats from Russia and the Islamic State Nato is improving and doing more "They are our allies of first resort And in terms of return on the dollar it’s a pretty good return" said Farkas who is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council in Washington DC "Now I think they are much more motivated I think they are trying to find the money" Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates delivered a brutal assessment nearly five years ago warning that Nato faced a "dim if not dismal" future and that the US would no longer carry the alliance as a charity case Since then a number of European allies have moved to increase their spending on NATO or pledged to do so in the coming years And faced with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine’s Crimea region and its support for separatists along the country’s eastern border Nato nations are participating more aggressively in their regional defense The alliance has fielded a Nato response force that can respond quickly to threats in the region and recently announced plans to expand it And just last month Jens Stoltenberg Nato’s secretary-general announced that the alliance ordered three warships to the Aegean Sea to help end the deadly smuggling of asylum-seekers across the waters from Turkey to Greece Associated Press Dr Suhas Kamble, said Shilpa.
