Please find attached the new investment pattern for PFs. It does not mention any particular date from which it is applicable. Therefore, they have kept an option either to opt it from 1st April 2014 or from previous year.
Main difference between the earlier pattern and new pattern are: :
1. PSU and Private bonds – upto 55% instead of 40% in MoF pattern
2. Equity / Equity MFs – Nil instead of 15% in MoF pattern
3. Any moneys received on the maturity of earlier investments reduced by obligatory outgoings shall be invested in the same category
