सातवें वेतन आयोग की रिपोर्ट 30 जून तक सौंप देंगे : केंद्रीय कैबिनेट सचिव पीके सिन्हा

केंद्रीय कैबिनेट सचिव पीके सिन्हा ने कहा है कि वह 30 जून तक सातवें वेतन आयोग की रिपोर्ट केंद्र सरकार को सौंप देंगे। इसके बाद इसे कैबिनेट में मंजूरी के लिए रखा जाएगा।

सिन्हा ने यह बात 'इंडियन पब्लिक इम्पलाइज फेडरेशन' के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष वीपी मिश्रा और महामंत्री प्रेम चंद्र के नेतृत्व में दिल्ली जाकर मिले एक प्रतिनिधिमंडल से वार्ता में कही। वीपी मिश्रा के मुताबिक, कैबिनेट सचिव पीके सिन्हा ने कहा है कि मई में ही सातवें वेतन आयोग की रिपोर्ट वे केंद्र सरकार को सौंप देते, लेकिन संसद सत्र चलने के कारण ऐसा नहीं कर पाए। 

खास बात यह है कि कैबिनेट सचिव की अध्यक्षता में केंद्र सरकार ने एक कमेटी गठित की है। इस कमेटी की जिम्मेदारी सातवें वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों की कमियों को दूर करके सरकार को रिपोर्ट सौंपना है। यह रिपोर्ट अभी तक नहीं सौंपी जा सकी है। इस रिपोर्ट में हो रही देरी को लेकर प्रतिनिधिमंडल ने उनसे मुलाकात की थी।

दिल्ली से लौटकर फेडरेशन के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष मिश्र ने लखनऊ में बताया कि फेडरेशन की मांग पर सातवें वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों में कई कमियों को सुधारकर रिपोर्ट देने का आश्वासन दिया है। जैसे न्यूनतम वेतन की सीमा बढ़ाई जा सकती है। नियमित पदों पर आउटसोर्सिंग के बजाए नियमित भर्ती का रास्ता खोला जा सकता है। पुरानी पेंशन के स्थान पर लागू की गई नई पेंशन योजना को कर्मचारियों के लिए पुरानी पेंशन से ज्यादा सुविधाजनक बनाने की बात है।

Posting A Game changer – Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. Documentary by NDTV 

Two years ago, India Post was recording losses. The rise of emails and SMSs had made inland post cards relics and the postal department resembled the Titanic. Then the ecommerce industry discovered the sleeping giant's enormous reach. A partnership started which has engineered a turnaround no one had predicted. Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad was lucky - as he was heading three ministries which complement each other. A Gamechanger it seems is on its way.

MP High Court sets aside SC/ST Quota in Promotion in Govt Service

The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Saturday set aside the provision of reservations in promotion in the Madhya Pradesh Public Service Rules, 2002. The court said all the promotions granted according to 2002 rules would be invalid.

The ruling of the division bench of Chief Justice Ajay Khanwilkar and Justice Sanjay Yadav came on public interest litigation filed by R B Rai, Santosh Kumar, S C Pandey and others. The petitioners had challenged 2002 rules on the ground that they were not in conformity with the norms given by the Supreme Court in the M Nagraj Vs Union (2006).

“The existing provision relating to reservation, backlog vacancies, carry forward of backlog vacancies… Contained in the Rules of 2002 runs contrary to the constitutional provisions contained in clause (4A) and (4B) of Article 16 and Article 335 and law predicated in M Nagraj,” the court said.
“Consequently, various promotions of SCs (Scheduled Castes) and STs (Scheduled Tribes) category made on the basis of these Rules of 2002 are held to be non-est in the eyes of law and the persons be placed in the position as if the said rules never existed and all actions taken in furtherance thereof must be reverted to status quo,” the court said.

“The implication of this judgement will be that all the promotions made under the rules of 2002 are non est (invalid) in the eyes of law and will be reverted and the gradation lists of various departments will have to be redrawn as prior to the enactment of rules of 2002,” said advocate Amol Shrivastava, who represented one of the petitioners.

WhatsApp to Add Call Back, Voicemail, Zip File Sharing Support


Facebook’s WhatsApp in recent months has added a lot of features including end-to-end encryption across messages and file sharing features. A new report claims that the most popular instant messaging service is all set to add more features in the coming weeks.

Phone Radar, citing translation requests, reports that WhatsApp for Android and iOS will soon get a ‘call back’ feature which will allow users to call back friends with just a tap of button without opening the app. The button will be visible in the notification pane, alongside a WhatsApp missed call notification. The messaging service is also said to bring voicemail feature to iOS platform, according to the report.

As expected from the voicemail feature, WhatsApp will allow users to record and send voicemails to contacts. The report says that the voicemail feature will show up when user is currently on a WhatsApp voice call.

Lastly, the report claims that after adding support for sending and receiving pdf files apart from Docs, Sheets, and Slides files, WhatsApp will gain zip file sharing feature. This will allow users to exchange heavy files via WhatsApp. We can expect that WhatsApp may be testing the new features with its beta testing programme members.

As of now, there is no word when WhatsApp will start rolling out these features but we can expect them to start in a few weeks.

In last few months, WhatsApp has added several new features including quick replies to messages right from the notification panel, and new text formatting features including bold and italics. The inbuilt camera in the WhatsApp Messenger also was completely overhauled with new user interface and icons. Earlier this year, the messaging service WhatsApp announced that it now had 1 billion monthly active users.

RD deposit error "Credit account is invalid status or Total Frozen"



  • When we try to deposit the RD account using the menu CRDP sometimes we will face the error "Credit account is invalid status or Total Frozen".
  • Please find the error screen shot


  1. The root cause of the above problem is that RD account might be frozen.
  2. In Finacle terminology Frozen account means discontinued account..
  3. IN DOP when an RD account is not having 6 defaults i..e, if there are 6 pending deposits then the account is said to be Discontinued account.
  4. For Example in our case account number 919956**** account shown in the error screen shot is Frozen account.
  5. We can inquire using the menu HPLIST menu.
  6. For our example I have inquired the menu HPLIST and the screen shot is as shown in the below image for your reference.
  • From the above screen shot it is clear that there are 6 pending installments from 13-11-2015 to 13-04-2016 hence the system will mark the said account automatically to Frozen account.


  • If the account is discontinued only solution is to left to the customer i..e., he/she may wish to continue the account till maturity period or close immediately.
  • If the account is having the missing credits and it is frozen then follow the missing credit procedure by taking the approval from the Divisional head.

7th Pay Commission – Finmin’s Blink on EPF Gives Confidence to Unions & Employees

The flip-flops by Union government on the revised EPF withdrawal norms may embolden government employees to strike work on July 11 as a means to get higher wages and allowances under 7th Pay Commission.

First, under the public outlash, the government withdrew the budgetary proposal to make 40 percent of the EPF corpus taxable. Now, under the protest of garment factory workers in the Bangluru area, central government again withdrew its February 10 notification which prevented an employee from withdrawing 100 percent of the EPF corpus before the age of 58 years.

In a third flip-flop, the government has decided to reverse its earlier decision of reducing the interest rate on Employees’ Provident Fund deposits for 2015-16 and instead keep it at 8.8 per cent, in line with the stand of the Central Board of Trustees (CBT) of the EPF Organisation (EPFO).

The flip-flops by the Govt on the revised EPF withdrawal norms has emboldened the government employees for nationwide protests against 7th pay commission recommendations.

“The labour movement of the garment workers of Karnataka state is an eye-opener for all the other working class in the entire country,”said PS Prasad, Secretary General, Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers Karnataka State.

“If the Central Government employees also participate in trade union action against the retrograde recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission similar to the Garment Workers of Karnataka, we too can get similar results and hope for a better wage revision and a decent wage hike”, Prasad was further quoted as saying.

Rourkela Steel Plant organizes Workshop “Roshni” for retiring employees in association with India Post

The authority of Rourkela Steel Plant is periodically organizing workshops “ Roshni” for its retiring employees to counsel them on how to invest their retirement benefits properly. In the meantime, 5 such workshops have since been organized last being on 13.04.2016.

Now The Ball Is In The Govt’s Court Let Us Be Ready For Indefinite Strike

Seventh Central Pay Commission has submitted its recommendations to Government on 19-11-2015. As most of the recommendations are retrograde and far below the expectations of the employees, the JCM National Council Staff side under the united banner of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) strongly protested and demanded modification of the retrograde recommendations. It further decided to organise indefinite strike and letter conveying the decision was sent to the Cabinet Secretary.
Main demands raised by NJCA are:
  1. Minimum wage of Rs.26,000/- as against 18000 recommended by CPC,
  2. Upward revision of the fitment formula and application of the same in all pay scales in the pay matrix,
  3. Retention of percentage of HRA as 30%, 20% and 10% as against 24%, 16% and 8% recommended by CPC. 
  4. Recommendation of the CPC to abolish important allowances should be rejected,
  5. Reject recommendations to discontinue all non-interest bearing advances,
  6. Reject the recommendation to reduce the salary to 80% for the second year of child care leave,
  7. Reject recommendations to impose more stringent conditions on MACP scheme such as “very good” benchmark, qualifying examination, re-introduction of efficiency bar etc.
  8. Modification in the parity-in-pension and acceptance of other minimum demands of pensioners and
  9. Grant of Civil Servants Status to Gramin Dak Sevaks and extending all the benefits of departmental employees to Gramin Dak Sevaks on pro-rata basis. 

There are other demands also which are equally important.

Govt. constituted an Implementation Cell in the Finance Ministry to study the recommendations and submit its proposal to the Empowered Committee of Secretaries under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary. Empowered Committee will submit final concrete proposals to Cabinet for approval. On receipt of the letter of NJCA addresed to Cabinet Secretary regarding indefinite strike, the Implementation Cell called the JCM staff side leaders to present its view points before the cell. Accordingly the NJCA leaders met the Convenor of Implementation Cell and explained the justification of each demands in the charter of demands.

NJCA decided to give strike notice on 11th March 2016 to commence the indefinite strike from 11th April 2016. At this stage the Cabinet Secretary invited the JCM National Council staff side leaders for discussion with Empowered Committee of Secretaries on 1st March 2016. The NJCA leaders attended the discussion and once again explained the justification of all demands before the Empowered Committee. Cabinet Secretary gave a patient hearing but made no commitment on any of the demands. He finally appealed the staff side to give some more time for the Government for inter-departmental consultations and to take a final view and decision on ech demand raised by the staff side in the charter of demnds.

NJCA met and reviewed the whole situation and came to the conclusion that as the Government has appealed for some more time to take a decision, it will be appropriate on the part of the staff side to give time to the Government, so that later on Government cannot blame that NJCA went on sudden strike inspite of the appeal from the Government to give some more time. Secondly, Railways and Defence departments come under the purview of Industrial Dispute Act and as per the ID Act, if strike notice is served on 11th March 2016, strike should commence within six weeks from the date of serving notice, by which time the election in four states will not be over. Thirdly, as the Assembly elections in four states have been notified and election code of conduct has come into force, the employees of four states will find it difficult to join the strike as many of them will be drafted for election duty. Taking into consideration all the above aspects, the NJCA decided to defer the indefinite strike from April 11th to July 11th and to serve the strike notice on June 9th instead of March 11th.

Now the ball is in the Govt.’s court. Before June 9th, ie. date of serving strike notice, the Government will be getting seven month time from the date of submision of the 7th CPC report, to take a final decision on all the demands and also to come to a negotiated settlement with the staff side. Any further delay is unwarranted and unjustified and cannot be tolerated. If the Government take an adamant stand and reject the justified demands of the staff side, then we will be forced to serve notice for indefinite strike from July 11th. Government can not take the staff side for granted.

AIPEU Group-C CHQ appeals to all the constituents of NJCA to take a firm stand and not to compromise on minimum demands. Let us also pledge that we will be second to none, in organising the indefinite strike in Postal and ensure cent per cent participation of our membership at gross root level in the impending strike

Finacle Training Lesson 7 [ Credits, Debits]



In the previous lesson we have learnt about the number of steps involved in completion a single transaction and the number of states for a transaction. Please read the previous lesson as it is very important in this training series.

In this lesson we will learn about some more finacle basics, like what is SOL id, what is teller id etc.

Service Outlet Id 

In finacle each post office is called as a SERVICE OUTLET. Each service outlet has a unique identification number called as Service Outlet Id. In short SERVICE OUTLET ID is called as SOL ID. I hope now you have come to know what a Sol is and what is Sol id.

SOL ID is a 8 digit number formed by joining the pin code of the post office and 2 more numbers. For example pin code number of Bangalore GPO is 560001 and its SOL id is formed by adding 00 to its pin code. So the SOL ID of Bangalore GPO is 56000100.
Similarly SOL ID of Medchal post office, whose pin code is 501401, is 50140101.
SOL Id = Pin code number+ 2 numbers like (00, 01, 02, 03 etc)
1. 600017+00=60001700
2. 500003+00=50000300
3. 500007+01=50000701
I hope you are getting my point. Sol id is nothing but post office. Sol id is the new name of a CBS post office.
  1. All accounts of a post office are linked to the Sol id
  2. All users (counter pa, supervisor, ledger clerks, etc) of a post office are linked to sol id.
  3. A user of a post office has all transactional privileges on accounts of the same Sol only
  4. Only deposits, withdrawal and passbook updating transactions of accounts of other SOLs are only to be done at your SOL.
  5. If you want to do transactions other than deposit, withdrawal or passbook updating, then you have to transfer the account to your office first by following prescribed procedures for account transfer.
  6. Transfer of accounts can be done within minutes. So if customer is ready with transfer application and KYC documents you can initiate the transfer at your end.
Note: If a user is going from one SOL to other SOL (on deputation or on rotational transfers etc), user or postmaster has to intimate to CPC about this movement. CPC people will then change the SOL id of the user as required.

One Transaction two entries.

Have you ever observed pending transactions in HFTI? If you did, then you might have observed two entries for every transaction. See in the below image.
We have blurred the numbers for security reasons

As you can see in the above image there are 2 entries for each transaction. Transaction numbers IN4**9566/1 and IN4**9566/2 correspond to the same transaction. But there are two entries, why?

In finacle for every transaction there will one CREDIT (Cr) entry and one DEBIT (Dr) entry. For every transaction we will have a clear picture of the movement of money.

Let me explain this with an example. But please note that if you do not understand this there is no problem. But please try to understand because it’s essential for all of us to know these concepts.

Example 1: - A customer has come to your counter to make a deposit of Rs.1000/- in to his SB account.

Now you will invoke CTM menu and deposit the amount in the customer account. Note down the transaction id. Now invoke HFTI menu. Enter the transaction id in Transaction ID field and click on Go. You will observe that there are two entries for the same transaction. One entry shows that Rs.1000/- is credited into the customer SB account and the other entry shows that Rs.1000/- is getting debited from your TELLER account. (In the amount column 1000 C means credit, 1000 D debit)

Example 2:- A customer has come to your counter to make a withdrawal of Rs.1000/-from his SB account.
As done in the previous example, you will invoke CTM menu and make the withdrawal transaction. Note the transaction id. Again invoke HFTI menu and enter the transaction id in Transaction ID field and click on Go. Again you will observe that there are two entries for the same transaction. One entry shows that Rs.1000/- is debited from the customer SB account and the other entry shows that Rs.1000/- is getting credited into your TELLER account.

As we can see from the above examples, there are 2 entries for each transaction. Also your Teller account is getting affected by the transactions which you are doing. It means that your teller account gets debited when you do a cash deposit transaction and your teller account gets credited when you are doing cash withdrawal transactions. It means your teller cash position will always be in DEBIT position. Whatever the available cash which the system shows is the DEBIT cash only. You can observe DR at the end in the teller cash position.
we have blurred the numbers for security reasons
The only point to remember in this entire discussion is that there are 2 entries (a debit entry and a credit entry) for each transaction. 


Apart from customer accounts, we will have some office accounts in finacle. These office accounts are used for various purposes. There are more than 500 office accounts in every office. Office accounts will also have an account number. Office account numbers will 12 digit long. Of these 12 digits first 8 digits will be the SOL ID and last 4 digits will vary for different accounts.
For example, I will show you some office accounts
  1. MIS sundry account number of Secunderabad HPO is 500003000337 ([50000300]{0337} = [SOL ID]{0337})
  2. MIS sundry account number of Bangalore GPO is 560001000337 ([56000100]{0337} = [SOL ID]{0337})
  3. MIS sundry account number of T Nagar HO is 600017000337 ([60001700]{0337} = [SOL ID]{0337})
As you can observe that in the MIS sundry account number only the SOL id is changing. Last 4 digits remain common.
  • Other office accounts are also identified in the same manner.
  • Now let’s see why office accounts are used with some examples.
Example 1:- SAS agent wants to open a 5yr TD account for Rs.100,000/-.
Counter PA will invoke the menu CMISAOP to open the 5yr TD account. After opening the account, the agent commission will be automatically CREDITED to agent's SB account.

But we know that for every transaction there are2 entries. In this transaction customers SB is getting credited. But which account is getting debited here? Here in this case one OFFICE ACCOUNT related to agent commission will get DEBITED.

So agent SB account will be credited and OFFICE account will be debited. All the agent commission which is paid in an office can be known by making an inquiry of this agent commission office account. You can use HACLINQ menu for that.

Similarly, since we give commission by deducting TDS, all this TDS amount will be credited in another Office account.

All these credit and debit transactions from office accounts will take place automatically. So you need not worry about all these. But it is essential that everyone should know what is happening inside the system.

Example 2 : An RD customer comes to your counter to make a deposit of Rs.500/- with default of Rs.5/-
Counter PA will invoke CRDP to make the deposit transaction. As you can see customer has given Rs.505/-, but customer account is credited only with Rs.500/-. Where this additional Rs.5/- will go? This addition Rs.5 will go to RD Default office account. 

Similarly if a customer is depositing 12 installments in RD. Customer will get some rebate. This rebate amount will come from RD Rebate office account.

As explained in the above examples, there are so many office accounts. Each account is used for different purposes.

So this about various office accounts in Finacle. In the next lesson we will learn about the most commonly used office accounts in the office.

Observations in the office 
1. Invoke HFTI menu and observe the credit and debit entries of all the transactions. Observe which account is getting debited and which account is getting credited for each transaction.
2. Note down the office account no of RD default.
3. Note down the office account number of agent commission and agent commission TDS.
Please make sure that you are observing the things which I tell you to do in the office. It’s essential in this learning process.

Point to remember
1. Every transaction will have 2 entries. (a debit entry and a credit entry)
2. Every office will have some office accounts. There are more than 500 office accounts in every office.
3. Different office accounts are used for different purposes.

Finacle Training lesson 6 [ 2 Steps, 4 States]

In the previous lesson we have learnt about the basic terminology which is used in Finacle. If you have not already read the previous lesson please read it and come back to start reading this lesson.

In this lesson we will learn about the basics of all the transnational procedures. This lesson is very important in this training series. So please pay a bit more attention.

There are two steps in the completion of transaction in Finacle.

Yes there are two steps in the completion of a single transaction in Finacle. In the first step Counter PA does the transaction in his/her login. In the second step Supervisor verifies/authorizes the transaction in their login. This concept of one person doing the transaction and other person verifying is called as maker-checker concept.

Why verification is necessary?

  • The answer is simple. Verification is necessary to prevent frauds, to check for errors and to prevent any misappropriations.
  • This verification concept is not new for us. We use to clear forms in the supervisor login of Sanchay post also. But verification had no significance in Sanchay post. Only because we cannot generate LOT without clearing the forms, we used to clear those forms.
  • But in finacle verification is mandatory. A transaction is completed only after the verification. Without verification of transactions we cannot perform day end operation.
  • So remember there are two steps in completion of any transaction. The transaction can be cash transaction or non cash transaction; it has to be verified by the supervisor.
  • Note: There is only one transaction which does not require any verification. It is SB withdrawal up to Rs.5000/-

The Four states of a Transaction

In the above section we have learnt that a transaction is not completed until verification is completed. So before verification a transaction will be in unverified state. In this unverified state there are 2 stages/states.

They are
1. Entered State
2. Posted State

After counter PA does a transaction in Finacle, it can be in either Entered state or in Posted State. After verification, the transaction changes its state to Verified State.

So totally there are 3 states for a transaction.
1. Entered State
2. Posted State
3. Verified State

Now let us see what is meant by Entered state, posted state and verified State.

1. Entered State: If a transaction is in entered state, it means that the deposit or withdrawal relating to that transaction has not yet been affected in the ledger of the account.
It means that, the transaction takes place but it will not affect any of the ledgers, be it the account ledger, teller cash position or LOT. Only after verification all these will be affected and the transaction will change its state to Verified State.
The transaction which will be in entered state before verification are a) RD deposit, b) SB withdrawal above 5000 and c) New accounts in which transaction is required.
We cannot modify any transaction once it is done.
We can delete transactions which are entered state. So if you do any mistake in transactions which are in entered state, we can delete that transaction and do that transaction again correctly.
Deleting does not mean that the transaction completely vanishes from the system. It will be available in the system as a deleted transaction.

2. Posted State: If a transaction is in posted state, it means that the deposit or withdrawal relating to that transaction has affected the ledger of the account.
It means that, the transaction has affected the account ledger, teller cash position and it will also appear in the LOT.
The transactions which will be in posted state before verification are a) All transactions which are not in entered state b) all transactions which are not in verified state and c) transaction whose state is modified from entered state using HTM menu before verification.
We cannot modify or delete a transaction which is in posted state.

3. Verified State: A transaction is said to be verified only after verification is done by supervisor. But there is one exception. SB withdrawal up to Rs.5000/- does not require verification. It will be in verified state by default.
We cannot modify or delete a transaction which is in verified state.
4. All transactions which are deleted will be in deleted state. Only the state changes from entered to deleted state. The transaction will still be available in the system for inquiry.
So these are the four states of transaction. I hope you are following me.

Since this is not a live training session. I will give you some work which you have to do in office. From this lesson onwards you will have some observations to do in the office. If you do these observations or work which I give you at the end of each lesson from now onwards, you will understand more clearly what I’m trying to teach.

Observation to be done at office:

1. Collect some SB, RD, PPF and SSA transactions which you have done in the day.
2. Invoke the menu HFTI (Don’t worry I’ll teach about HFTI menu in detail in later lessons).
3. A new screen will appear. In that screen you will see field “A/c Id” ( See the image below)

In the A/c Id field enter the account numbers which you have collected in the first step, one by one. For example, enter SB account number of the transaction and Click on Go button.

4. When you enter the account number and click on GO, the following screen will come.

5. Repeat the same process with the vouchers of all transactions.
What you have to do is observe the status of each transaction before verification and after verification.

So that’s it for today’s lesson. See you again tomorrow.

Points to remember in this lesson:

1. There are two steps in completion of a transaction. Counter PA does the transaction and supervisor verifies the transaction
2. There are three states for a transaction. They are Entered State, Posted State and Verified state.
3. Do not forget to observe the status of the transaction in the counter tomorrow.

No Scope To Major Changes In 7th Pay Commission Recommendations: Finmin

New Delhi: Finance Ministry sources today said on condition of anonymity, there is no scope to major changes in 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Finance minister Arun Jaitley had promised central government employees would get proper pay scales.

The sources came up with the remark while talking to us about hiking of pay scales of all central government employees and officials by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries than the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Those who will hope over this issue will gain nothing but some minor changes on 7th Pay Commission recommendations of pay scales are possible, they added.

Replying to a question, the sources said, “The demand of central government employees over their pay scales is likely to be lightly considered by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries.

They said adding “Though Finance minister Arun Jaitley had promised them that they will get proper pay scales with hiking minimum pay of lower paid employees, after the review of the new pay scales by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries.”

The 7th Pay Commission headed by Justice A K Mathur recommended on November 19, the highest basic salary at Rs 250,000 and the lowest at Rs 18,000 and its increased the pay gap between the minimum and maximum from existing 1:12 to 1:13.8, while all pay commissions made up pay gap between employees and officers from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to Sixth pay commission 1:12.

A 13-member secretary-level Empowered Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha was formed by the central government in January to review the 7th Pay Commission proposals before cabinet nod.

7th Pay Commission: Modi Govt all set to implement recommendations; notification most likely in June

7th Pay Commission: Modi Govt all set to implement recommendations; notification most likely in June

New Delhi, April 27: Modi Government is all set to implement recommendations of Seventh Pay Commission. Reportedly, the notification for the 'increment process' will be issued in the month of June.

It is being believed that Centre will issue notification most likely in the third week of June after Cabinet's nod to the recommendations of pay Commission.

A Finance Ministry sources was quoted by a news website as saying, "But in case it's not issued in third week of June, it will be issued at the beginning of fourth week of June. Usually it takes around one week to issue a notification, after cabinet nod".

Ministry is also hopeful that Empowered Committee of Secretaries which is looking after the recommendations at the moment, will submit its report by June 15.

Most likely, increased payout will be handed over to central government employees earliest at the end of June or latest by July. Reports suggest that Empowered Committee of Secretaries which has been entrusted the responsibility to overview recommendations will not make much change into it.

Earlier, Modi government conceded that implementation of new pay scales proposed by the 7th CPC is estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore which is around 0.7 per cent of GDP.

Isro rocket carrying India's final 'GPS satellite' lifts off from Sriharikota

Sriharikota: An Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket lifted off successfully on Thursday afternoon with the country's seventh and final navigation satellite, IRNSS-1G, from the rocket port.

The PSLV-XL standing 44.4 metre tall and weighing 320 tonnes, tore into the afternoon skies at 12.50 pm breaking free of the earth's gravitational pull.

Named the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), it consists of a constellation of seven satellites of which six - IRNSS-1A, IRNSS-1B, IRNSS-1C, IRNSS-1D, IRNSS-1E and IRNSS-1F- have already been put into orbit.

The PSLV-C33, carrying IRNSS-1G, in its 35th flight, would be the XL variant that was used during launch of Mars Orbiter Mission, Chandrayaan-1, ASTROSAT besides the six IRNSS satellites.
The seventh satellite in the series - IRNSS-1G - weighing 1,425 kg is expected to soon join the other six.
With the operationalisation of six satellites, India has demonstrated the system's targeted position accuracy which is much better than 20 metres over 24 hours of the day.

With the launch and operationalisation of IRNSS-1G, the seventh in the constellation, the completion of IRNSS constellation will be achieved, ISRO said.

Just over 20 minutes into the flight, the rocket would put IRNSS-1G into orbit at an altitude 497.8 km. The satellite's life span is 12 years.

According to ISRO officials total cost of all the seven satellites was Rs 1,420 crore.

Finacle Training Lesson 5 [ Nomenclature , User Interface]



  • In the previous lesson we were learning about the basic terminology used in Finacle. As a part of it we have learnt about what is Function. If you have not read the previous lesson, please read it first and then come back and continue reading this lesson.
  • In today’s lesson we will learn more about the terminology used in Finacle.

Finacle Terminology continued…

In the previous lesson we have learnt that, we instruct Finacle what to do, by choosing appropriate function. But Function alone is not enough to complete a transaction. Sometimes Finacle needs some additional information to fully understand what you want to do. Let’s see this with an example.

Suppose a customer has come to your counter to make an RD Deposit by cash. Since RD Deposit can be made either by cash, or by post office SB cheque or by any bank Cheque, we need to tell finacle the mode of payment. We can tell the mode of payment by choosing appropriate option in Transaction Type. See the image below.

As we can see in the above image we chose Function as ADD since we are doing new cash transaction. But since RD deposit can be made by cash, POSB Cheque or bank cheque, we have to tell Finacle whether we are making the deposit by cash POSB/Bank cheque. We can tell this to Finacle by choosing appropriate option in Transaction Type.
  1. For RD Deposit by cash we choose C/NR – Cash Deposit
  2. For RD Deposit by POSB/Bank Cheque we choose T/CI – Transfer Customer Induced
  3. T/BI Bank Induced option is used only in extra ordinary cases. (Bank doesn’t mean other bank. Bank means us. Bank means Post office. We are bank.)
In this way we give additional information about a transaction to Finacle. You will observe the following additional options in various menus
Function Type in CTM
Transaction Type/Subtype in HTM, CPDTM
Type in CPDTM
Scheme Code/ Scheme in all account opening menus
Product Group in MIS/TD opening and NSC/KVP issue menus.
All these additional options are used to give additional information about a transaction to Finacle.

Various Schemes available in Finacle

As per our POSB Rules we have several schemes which are SB, RD, MIS, TD, SCSS, SSA, NSC, KVP, NSS 87, NSS 92 etc. In Finacle we call these as Products.

In each product there are different types of schemes. Let’s see with an example.
Previously we used to call SB as scheme. But in Finacle
  • We call saving account with cheque book as a scheme.
  • We call saving account without cheque book as a scheme.
  • We call Pension account with cheque book as a scheme.
  • We call pension account without cheque book as a scheme.

Similarly In TD

We call 1 yr TD as a scheme
We call 2 yr TD as a scheme
We call 3 yr TD as a scheme
We call 5 yr TD as a scheme
Hope you are getting my point.

SB, RD, TD, MIS etc are called as Products. Whereas, schemes have an entirely different meaning in Finacle.

Different terms used in Finacle 

Please see the below table and you will understand the difference of terminology used in basic terms. For example we call a customer as DEPOSITOR, in finacle we call customer as Related Party. See the below table for more such differences and learn the terms used in Finacle for the old terms which we were using till now.

Finacle User Interface

It is essential but not compulsory to learn about the user interface of Finacle. People who are rigorous internet users can skip this part of the lesson. For those people who feel Internet as Chinese or Japanese language compulsorily read the following part. It will be helpful not only in Finacle but also when we start using CSI in our offices. Not only in office, even in your day to day life this knowledge of internet will be useful.

See the image below first then I’ll tell you in detail about what you see in the image.

The above image is a screen shot of our India Post Website. It’s nice and colorful. There are various items on the screen, our logo, menu, our national emblem, tracking section of mails, important news etc. All these things are called as Elements.

These elements are all put together to form a Website. We know that Finacle is also a website. Since Finacle is also a website it will also have these elements. I will discuss all the elements which are used in Finacle. Now again see the below image.

Not so colorful. But the elements are same. Let us discuss each element in detail.
Text Field: A text field is an element in which you can enter some data. As shown in the above all the rectangle boxes are text fields. See in Address Line 1 and Address Line 3 I have noted them as Text Fields. I’m so lazy yar. That’s why I noted only two boxes as text fields. But all the other rectangular boxes are also called as Text Fields only. We can simply call Text field as Field.

Labels: In the above image Address Line 1 is the Label of the Text Field which I have noted in the image. Similarly Phone Type is the Label of the Drop down Box. Label is nothing but the name of the other elements. For example If I tell you Pin as 500018 then you have to click on the text field beside Pin Label on the screen and then you have to enter the pin as 500018.

You may be thinking why all this nonsense you are teaching man, go straight into finacle. Let me explain. One of our respected staff who came for finacle training at my training center did this. I told him to enter address in Address field 1. He was clicking on the Label instead of clicking in the rectangular box beside it. I was shocked. People have very little knowledge about internet and computers. That’s why I’m forced to cover all this basic stuff. Moreover I'll be using these terms very frequently in the coming lessons. So lets get used to them.

Drop Down Box : A drop down box is an element in which there will be more than one option. In those many available options we have to choose one option. When you click on that element, a list will drop down. Hence the name.

Radio Buttons: A radio Button is a set of buttons similar to drop down box where we can choose only one option. Many years ago when radios were newly used, radios had a group of buttons out of which you can only press one button at a time. When you press the second button, the first button which is already pressed will come up and this second button will pressed down. Here also radio buttons will work in the same way. You can only click one button at a time.
  • See in the image. For enabling internet banking there are two radio buttons Yes and No. You have to choose either Yes or No. You cannot choose both at a time.
  • Radio buttons are used when you have to choose only one option from given options.
  • You may be thinking drop down boxes are also used for the same purpose. Then when should use radio button or when should we use drop down boxes.
  • Radio buttons are used when the there only 2 or 3 options. Imagine there are 100 options. It will be very confusing when 100 buttons are present on the screen. In such cases drop down boxes are used. When more options are there we use drop down boxes.
  • Check Boxes: A check box is an element which is used when you can choose more than one option. But in finacle they never used more than one check box at time. A check box is nothing but a small box , when you click it, a small tick mark will come. It is used to indicate Yes or No in our Finacle. When you check it , it means Yes, when you uncheck it, it means No.

Buttons: I hope everybody know what a button is. In the image, we have two buttons. 1) Submit 2) Cancel.
We have seen a lot of buttons in Sanchay Post. Some of them are
New Form
Ok etc.
In finacle we see different kinds of buttons. I will explain some of them
  1. Go: When you click on Go button, Finacle will show you the next screen of the transaction which you are currently doing.
  2. Post/Submit: When you click on Post button or Submit , it means that your transaction is completed.
  3. Validate: This button can be used to check whether you have correctly filled all the fields on the screen. When you click Validate button, Finacle will check whether everything is right. If something is missing it will show you some error.
  4. Clear : Clear button can be used to delete all the data which you have entered in a screen and a fresh form will appear on the screen
  5. Cancel: As we all know by clicking cancel, the current incomplete transaction will be cancelled and a new screen will appear
  6. Back: Back button will take us to the previous screen of the transaction which you are currently doing.
So this is the basic terminology which is used in Finacle. Don’t worry if you think I have missed something, that something will be covered as and when necessary.

Also please keep in mind, that if I’m not teaching about anything in Finacle, it means that it is not necessary to learn. Your counter transactions will still run without any problem and you can still close the counter by 04:30pm.

See you in the next lesson.

Points to Remember:
1. Apart from Function, finacle needs some more information to complete our transaction.
2. Finacle terminology is different from our general terminology. But since finacle terminology is on par with global banking terminology let’s get used to it.
3. SB, RD, TD, MIS etc are called as Products.
4. Learn all the elements which I have discussed in this lesson.
