First thing is that, Interest on PF is not 9.5 %. It is 8.5%.
now lets come to your query, first you understand that, employees contribution (means 12%) directly goes in Provident fund a/c. but,
Employer's contribution (13.61%) is divided in to 5 part as mentioned below..
1) 8.33% goes in Pension Fund
2) 3.67% goes in Provident Fund
3) 0.50 % goes in EDLI (Employees Deposit Link Insurance)
rest 1.61 % divided in Admin Charges
1) 1.10% Admin charges on PF A/c
2) 0.01% Admin charges on EDLI a/c
If you see you annual PF slip carefully, So, you will found that, Provident Fund amount details only mentioned in annual slip, it means not mentioned the Pension amount details.
Interest rate of PF is calculate on employees contribution as well as Employer Contribution. So, you are getting the interest on both contribution.
That the reason, it is wonderfull to you, its showing more than you expection. for your information, your some more money (Other than mentioned in annual PF slip) is safe in Pension Fund.
In further you can withdra you PF as well as Pension amount also. but EDLI amount is not be reimbursment, It can be use only, IF you not register in ESIC, & if you meet any accident in further (Sorry to say that), you will be get the benefit of same. EDLI is like a Insurance.
If you want to know any thing else, Please let me know...

1) Your date of Joining
2) Your monthly salary (Basic + DA ) during the slip period
3) Your monthly EPF deduction ( Normally it must be 12 % of your Basic + Da)
