Dear employees will definitely eligible for interest, EPF authority always generate the faulty employer list, means who are not submitting the returns within the due date, if you are faulty employer then EPF authority will conduct the audit your establishment.
Thanks & Regards

I am not sure whether interest is paid by P.F Dept. for the period of delay in paying contribution but the P.F authorities can levy interest and damages for the period of delay on the contributions thus defaulted by the employer under the provisions of the P.F Act

Getting interest on PF amount by the employee will go as usual in case of the management delays the deposit.
The PF authorities will take care of collecting interest on delayed payment form the Employer.

Dear Friend,
In response to your query , I am to confirm that employees will get his due interest from PF Authorities inspite of the fact that employer has failed to deposit the monthly PF contribution in time, i.e, within 15th of the month.
For the delayed payment, the EPFO will issue show cause notice to the employer with regard to interest and damages at the end the financial year when PF account of all employees are finalized and Form 23 is generated. If the reply in response to the show cause notice is not satisfactory, the EPFO will charge interest for delayed payment as well as damages as per provision of the Act.
In any event the employee will not be prejudiced in the matter of interest to be receivable.Hope it is clear to you.
