Solution for the SCSS account renewal error-"Interest Calculation not done .Run HACINT" in DOP Finacle


  • Generally in DOP we will extend the SCSS accounts after completion of the maturity date of that SCSS account.
  • We can check the maturity date for all the TDA accounts ( MIS/TD/SCSS) by using the menu HTDTRAN in DOP Finacle.
  • HTDTRAN stands for Term Deposit Transaction Details.
  • For operating procedure of the menu HTDTRAN users can CLICK HERE.
  • The menu option used for extension of SCSS/TD accounts is HTDREN in DOP Finacle.
  • For detailed step by step operating procedure to use the menu HTDREN(Term Deposit Renewal) users can CLICK HERE
  • But in some cases while extending the account we will get the error - "Interest Calculation not done .Run HACINT" in DOP Finacle.
  • The error screen shot will be as shown in the below figure.





Root cause of the above problem :- 


  • The above problem when extending the SCSS account arises in the following case

  • HACINT will be executed by CEPT Chennai team hence forward the request to your respective CPC they will forward to CEPT to run HACINT for that SCSS account.


Solution for the above problem :- 

  • If the interest run happened by CEPT team you can check in HTDTRAN then after executing HACINT try for extension of SCSS account then system will not show any error as there is no pending interest for execution.



Solution for the TD claim closure error-" penal interest must be Yes" in DOP Finacle

  • For detailed step by step procedure for claim closures for all the type of accounts in DOP Finacle  can be viewed by the users by CLICK HERE.

  • The error screen shot will be as shown in the below figure




Root cause of the above Problem :- 

  • The above problem arises for all MIS/TD claim closures when the lock in period is not completed i.e.  for all partial claim closures.
  • For SCSS account we will adjust the interest by using the menu HINTTM where as for TD/MIS partial closure which came for claim closure there is need of interest adjustment.

Solution for the above Problem :- 


  • As said in the above step this is mainly due to partial closure hence the solution for such type of closures is we have to enter the value date as date of death and closure reason code as "DTCLM" while closing the account in counter PA then the system will not give the above said error.
  • After closing the account verify the account closure in the supervisor option and view the amount eligible for the customer.

C.O, AP Circle Clarification dtd 27/09/2016

Counting of Training period for IPO Examination - Clarification



Whether training period counted for IPO examination? 

Answer is YES. 


Government of India’s Orders No. 16 below FR. 9(6) reads: 

Period of training before appointment to be treated as ‘duty’ for eligibility to sit for departmental examinations: 

       It has been decided that in all cases where pre-service training is considered necessary before actual appointment to the post, the period spent by an officer on training immediately before such appointment would count as qualifying service for the purpose of eligibility for appearing in Departmental examinations, even if the officer is not given the scale of pay of the post but only a nominal allowance. 

     Hence the candidates are requested to submit their application before the last date (30.09.2016) mentioning the period of training in the application form. 

Procedure to generate the total number of accounts opened and closed in DOP Finacle


  • Generally in DOP there are 2 servers maintained in DOP Finacle. They are mentioned below
  1. Production Server.
  2. Reports Server(MIS Server)
  • Most of them will get the doubt why do we need 2 servers in order to know the details just go through the below mentioned lines.

What is Production Server ?

  • Production server is nothing but LIVE server in which we daily login and do the transactions regularly.
  • In this server only reports data will be stored only for current date (BOD date in Finacle terminology which can be inquired using the menu HSSI).
  • In order to overcome the load on the LIVE server in DOP Finacle for old reports (previous day's report ) there is another server maintained.
  • URL for this server is https://dpdcpflmis.fsi.indiapost.gov.in:1443/finbranch/ui/SSOLogin.jsp
  • This can be logged in by all the users i..e, CPA,SU,SA roles etc., in DOP Finacle

What is Reports Server (MIS Server) ?

  • Reports Server is nothing but MIS server in which we can take the reports for previous dates i.e., back dated reports in DOP Finacle.
  • The URL for MIS server is https://dpdcpflmis.fsi.indiapost.gov.in:1443/finbranch/ui/SSOLogin.jsp which is known as MIS URL in DOP Finacle.
  • MIS URL can be logged in by SU,SA,SBCO officials,Auditors etc., but CPA (counter PA) can't login to this URL.
  • All the month reports,live account reports,statistic reports etc., can be generated in MIS URL.

Procedure to generate the total number of accounts opened and closed in DOP Finacle :- 


  • As mentioned above for generation of reports for previous day or monthly reports we generally use MIS URL.
  • Login with SU/SA role in MIS URL then the system will show below screen as shown in the below screen


  • In the next step for generation of any report we generally invoke the menu HFINRPT then the system will show below screen as shown


  • Then select the page 2 you can find the report name common_statistical statement  report from the list of reports available in page 2 as shown in the below figure



  • Select the report then the system will ask the below details
  1. Enter the field From Date ____________________________
  2. Enter the field To Date ______________________________
  3. Enter the field Sol/SET id ____________________________
  4. Enter the field Product Group _________________________ as shown in the below figure


  • Then finally click on submit then system will generate the report in the background
  • For all the reports generated in the background  we have to view the report using the menu HPR. 
  • Invoke the menu and view the report as shown in the below figure



  • From the above screen shot it is clear that system is showing the statistical report for the mentioned SOL ID and for the mentioned period in our example for demonstration purpose.

Important Points to Remember :- 

  • Always generate the report scheme wise for the above said report we can't generate for all the schemes at once hence go for scheme wise report.
  • In MIS URL generally report generation will take sometime depending on the server load hence be patient and try to view the report after 15 to 30 mins after report generation.
  • Also try to generate the report SOL wise for quick response from the server hence don't try for SET ID in MIS URL.

Central Government has a proposal to Pay 1% DA from July 2016 as an interim Measure





Central Government has a proposal to Pay 1% DA from July 2016 as an interim Measure

The Sources Close to the Ministry of finance informed that there is proposal to Pay 1% DA from July as an interim Measure.It is said that the Central Government has not yet decided about the DA rates in Revised Pay scale.

Sources close to Finance Ministry told that the initial installment of DA to central government employees on the revised pay structure w.e.f 1.7.2016 is under consideration. Mean time there is a proposal to pay the DA from July 2016 at the rate of 1% to all CG Staffs. It will be a shocking news for CG Staff, since they are already expecting 2 to 3% DA from July 2016.

PRU is asked to submit Financial Implication of 1% DA

But the fact is the Department of Expenditure has directed the PRU of the Finance Ministry to furnish the details of additional Financial Implications for 1% increase of DA with effect from 1.7.2016 on the revised Pay Structure.

Further the Pay Research Unit has been requested to furnish financial implications for the Period of July 2016 to February 2017 on account of granting 1% DA from July 2016 to all central government employees including Armed Forces and UT Employees.

According to the above information, it is believed that announcement of 1% DA for July installment may be made any time soon.

78-DAYS BONUS OF Rs 18000/- FOR RAILWAYMEN LIKELY




PTI
| New Delhi | 25 September, 2016

Ahead of the festive season, railway employees are likely to get 78-day wages as bonus this year, the same as in the last four years despite the financial crunch.

We have demanded 78-day wages as productivity-linked bonus (PLB) for railway employee this year and expecting the government to declare the same next week," National Federation of Indian Railwaymen General Secretary M Raghavaiah said.

Productivity-linked bonus is paid to about 12 lakh railway employees each year before the Dussehra festival.

Raghavaiah said the 78-day wage is expected to be around Rs.18,000 per employee. In 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 also, 78-day wages were also given as PLB to railway employees.

Facing a shortfall of about Rs.10,000 crore in the earnings due to slowdown in loadings and drop of passengers in short train journey, the railways will get the cabinet approval for the 78-day bonus proposal next week.

The bonus decision is expected to cost the railways about Rs.2000 cr.

All-India Railwaymen's Federation General Secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra said the bonus is expected to motivate the employees to improve the financial position of the public transporter.

Mishra said, "Since the PLB ceiling has been revised to Rs.7000 from Rs.3500, we expect each employee will get double the amount as against the last year's bonus."

Last year, the minimum bonus paid was Rs.8,975 per employee.

PLB covers all non-gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) spread over the entire country.
