SSA Interest Patch for SBCO Miscat


SSA Interest Patch is for only SBCO Units using old MISCAT Software for SSA Scheme

SSA Interest Patch is for only SBCO Units using old MISCAT Software for SSA Scheme

Sukanya Samriddhi Account (SSA) is newly introduced scheme. There is no provision in the existing SBCO / MISCAT Module. So most of the SBCO units are using the existing MISCAT - PPF module 

Some SBCO units maintain Office wise registers only

As per SB Order 02/2015Addendum : SBCO will maintain separate Office wise register for this scheme

In the existing PPF Module the IBB will be calculated for the minimum balance from 5th of every month to the end of the month. But for SSA the IBB should be calculated for minimum balance from 10th of every month to the end of the month ( Like SB scheme ) So we need to use some other software. 

So we can use this SSA Interest Calculation patch to solve the problem. 

Create batch file in the name of SSA.BAT

go to Command prompt

1. Download the SSA.EXE and paste in any folder (including Foxpro.exe and Foxpro.ovl )
Paste in to C:\SSA\PPF folder ( where the SSA data are being fed)

2. Create batch file

3. Run the Batch file ...... Check the folder path ( You can change as per your requirement )

4. Give the office code for required offices - ie non CBS Offices. The Interest will be calculated .

5. Then Open our MISCAT ( for SSA) - > Master -> Index services & Updating Balance

6. Report -> Report -> Annual Report -> 1. Interest / 3. Interest 63

Sanchay SO to Ho file generation problem after AD Rollout

After joining India Post domain sometimes Sanchay SO to HO files are not being generated at the time of day and . This is due to password problem of local user account. So it is better to change the administrator password of local system at the time of domain joining. If the password of local administrator account is blank before joining the domain, leave it blank only.


  • Remove System from India Post domain to work group.

  • Right Click on My Computer ->Manage->Local Users and Groups ->Users->Right Click on Administrator->Set Password-> Proceed->Leave password fields blank and click on OK.

  • This will leads to the user account to blank password credential.

  • Rejoin the system to India Post domain.

Reasons for non transmission of COD delivered amount


Non Transmission of COD amount from Delivery Office

1) BO Verification not done in Postman module: In Postman module,Supervisor has to perform verification of the amount in r/o all the COD articles delivered by the Branch Post Offices attached to the HO/SO. The BO Verification process will cross check as to whether the amount of all COD articles delivered by each Branch Post Office has been credited to the Accounts w.r.t. the BO Summary in Sub Accounts module. Only such COD aritcle’s amount will be transmitted to ePayment server.
Solution: A new report in Postman module is provided in Meghdoot version 7.9.2, which displays all the COD articles pending in that post office and the reasons for such pendency. Please check this report to know the date for which BO Verification has to be done.

BO Verification can be done at any later date by the Postman Supervisor, by selecting the concerned Account Date i.e., BO Summary Date.

2) BO Names mis-match : The names of the Branch Post Offices as appearing in Sub Accounts module and Postman module should be exactly same. As the BO Verification happens based on the BO names, the names in both these modules should exactly match. If any mismatch is there in the names of the Branch Post Offices, then the articles delivered by such B.O.s will not be transmitted to ePayment Server.
Solution: Please modify such BO names in Sub Accounts module to exactly match with that available in Postman module.

3) Non-usage of Sub Accounts module for generating BO Summary: Using the Sub Accounts module is a must in all the ePayment Sub Post Offices/Head Post Offices, as the COD amount will be transmitted only after tallying with the BO Summary figures of each BO (for the articles delivered through Branch Post Offices)
Solution: Please ensure that BO transactions for those days are entered in the Sub Accounts module. 

4) Submit Account not done in Postman module: In Postman module, the Supervisor has to perform Submit Account for each Postman beat. This process will cross check as to whether the amount of all COD articles delivered by that beat postman has been credited to the Treasurer or not. COD delivered data in r/o the beats for which submit account has been done, will be transmitted to ePayment server for further transmission to Payment office. It is further to state that Postman module will not allow to perform day end without completing the Submit Account of all the beats. 
Solution: The case has to be reported to CEPT for providing suitable solution. 

5) Office became inactive in ePayment: The delivery office might have become inactive in ePayment server. This may be due to the change of the ePayment communication machine by the Post Office, for one reason or the other. The ePayment server will take the data being communicated by the registered communication machine only. If the earlier registered ePayment communication machine is changed by the Post Office, then the COD articles delivered by that Post Offices will not be taken as authenticated by the ePayment Server. 
Solution: The Divisional System Administrator has to re-register the office in ePayment website using the same machine which has transmitted the COD data. Then the ePayment server will re-process the data earlier received by it again. 

6) Last Call status in ePayment: Many offices are not running the ePayment Communication application on daily basis, without which the data will not get transmitted to ePayment server, even though entire delivery process is completed as per the procedure. An MIS report viz.,”Offices Not Called” is available in the ePayment Website which shows the list of Post Offices which have not run the ePayment communication since last 24 hours. The ePayment Communication application can be either scheduled OR run manually. 
Solution: The ePayment Communication application need to be scheduled atleast twice a day. The above mentioned MIS report is available division wise. 

7) Non upgradation of ePayment Software: Some of the offices have not upgraded their ePayment software to the latest version 7.9.2. Some other offices have upgraded the ePayment software from the very old version to Version 7.9.1/7.9.2 instead of upgrading sequentially. Both the above cases may cause problem(s) in using the options provided in these latest versions including non transmission/non payment of COD amounts. 
Solution: All the ePayment offices have to upgrade their ePayment software to the latest version (7.9.2) which is available in CEPT’s ftp website
