According to the report, net new enrolments with retirement fund body stood at 18.23 lakh in July 2022.

It showed that from September 2017 to July 2022, around 5.7 crore (gross) new subscribers joined the Employees' Provident Fund scheme.

NSO also said the report gives different perspectives on the levels of employment in the formal sector and does not measure employment at a holistic level.
