Investment in care services can generate 234 million jobs for women by 2035: ILOInvestment in care services can generate 234 million jobsThe International Labour Organization (ILO) report “Care at Work: Investing in Care Leave and Services for a More Gender Equal World of Work” was released on March 7, 2022, ahead of International Women’s Day, and was based on an ILO legal survey of 185 countries. The report highlights eight key messages. 

  • This report stipulates a global overview of national laws and practices regarding care policies, such as maternity protection, paternity, parental and other care-related leave policies, in addition to childcare and long-term care services.
  • It exposed that persistent and significant gaps in care services and policies have left hundreds of millions of workers with family responsibilities without adequate protection and support.

Key Points:
i.By investing in universal childcare and long-term care services, about 299 million jobs can be generated by 2035. Women will receive 234 million (78%) of these funds.
ii.An annual investment of $5.4 trillion will be required for this job creation potential by 2035.
iii. Employment rates for women will be high in Europe, lower-middle and low-income countries in Asia and Arab states, far more than for men.
iv.Employment rates of women will rise by 10 % points overall, ranging from 9% points in Europe and lower-middle and low-income countries in Asia to 12% points in the Arab states, far more than for men.
v.Around the world, only 89 out of 179 countries have a statutory provision of public long-term care services for older persons.
vi.The report concluded with a call for action to invest in a transformative package of care policies that is central to the broader international agenda on investing in the care economy – a breakthrough pathway for building a better and more gender equal world of work.
Maternity Leave 

  • About 649 million women of reproductive age from 82 countries did not meet the ILO convention mandate of 14 weeks of minimum maternity leave.
  • The relative no. of potential mothers living in countries with maternity leave durations below 14 weeks is 51.9% in Africa (23 countries), 55.8% in the Americas (18 countries) and 17.5% in Asia and the Pacific (15 countries). In Europe and Central Asia, all potential mothers live in countries providing at least 14 weeks of maternity leave.
  • Globally, 123 countries offer fully paid maternity leave, with 9/10 potential mothers living in these countries.
    The report alarmed that it will take at least 46 years to achieve minimum maternity leave rights in the 185 countries analyzed for the study.

EPFO Sets Its Interest Rates on PF for 2021-22 At The Lowest LevelEPFO lowers interest on PF deposits for 2021-22The Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has set the interest rate on Provident Fund Deposits for 2021-22 at 8.1%, up from 8.5% in the previous fiscal year 2020-21.
This decision was taken by the Central Board of Trustees (CBT), the apex decision-making body of the EPFO, and will be sent to the Ministry of Finance for consensus.
The EPFO provides the rate of interest only after it has been ratified by the government through the Finance Ministry.

  • The EPF interest rate stood at 8 per cent in 1977-78, and this 8.1% is the lowest it has been in more than four decades. This interest rate was set by the retirement fund body for its approximately 50 million subscribers for the current fiscal year ending March 31.
  • The possible reason behind this decision is the low earnings of EPFO due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It delayed its payments for 2019–20 and paid the interest in two instalments, deriving from two sources of its investments—8.15% from debt investments and 0.35% from the equity portfolio.


  • In March 2020, EPFO had lowered the interest rate on provident fund deposits to a seven-year low of 8.5 per cent for 2019-20, from 8.65 per cent provided for 2018-19.
  • The EPF rate for 2017–18 was 8.55%.
  • Provident fund savings are mandatory under the Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952.
  • Central Board of Trustees (CBT) is a tripartite body involving government, workers and employers’ representatives and its decision is binding on EPFO.

ESA Introduced a New One-of-a-Kind Mission: ESA Vigil, Earth’s Solar Defender Earth's Defender 'Vigil' Introduced By ESA

On 10th February 2022, The European Space Agency (ESA) introduced its new one-of-a-kind mission named “Vigil”, which is meant to protect the Earth from its nearest star (sun). ‘Vigil’ is derived from the Latin word ‘vigilia’ meaning wakefulness, while ‘vigilis exceptus’ means sentry, or guard.

  • The mission was previously named “Lagrange” after the location the mission spacecraft will be sent but later the name has been changed to ‘Vigil’.
  • The Vigil spacecraft will be launched to the fifth Lagrange(L5) point which is 150 million kilometres from both Earth and the sun.

Lagrange Points:
i.Lagrange points are the locations in outer space that are gravitationally stable as compared to other locations.
ii.The L5 is the fifth Lagrange point which is located at an equal distance from both the Sun and Earth. 
Note: The James Webb Space Telescope and the Gaia spacecraft, launched by ESA are located at the second Lagrange point (L2). 
Functions of ESA Vigil:
i.The spacecraft at L5 would stream a constant feed of near-real-time data on hazardous solar activity, before rolling into Earth’s view.
ii.The ESA Vigil positioned in an unvisited position in space will  help to warn earth about the oncoming solar storms which can damage power grids, disrupt telecommunications and threaten satellites and the vital services they provide. 
iii.This will provide more time to  protect spacecraft in orbit, infrastructure on the ground and explorers now and in the future, unshielded by Earth’s magnetic field and vulnerable to our star’s violent outbursts.
iv.As part of ESA’s Vision for the future, the new Protect ‘accelerator’ will ensure the resilience of technologies on which modernity depends.
ESA Vigil Mission Patch:
i.The design of the patch features a stylised wing of protection which shelters Earth from the sun’s hazardous radiation. 
ii.The L5 point is emphasised with the five stars shown just above the blue Earth.
