Payment of interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments through Savings Account

Payment of interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments through Savings Account

F. No. 1/3/2017-NS
Ministry of Finance
Department of Economic Affairs
(Budget Division)

North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 3 .8.2017

Office Memorandum

Subject: Payment of interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments through Savings Account.

The undersigned is directed to refer to DoP’s letter No. 113-02/2015-SB dated 7.6.2017 on the subject and to state that the matter has been examined in this  Department and the following decisions have been taken:

(i) Accounts for the purpose of crediting interest/maturity value of all accounts of all Small Savings Instruments [except existing Post Office Savings Account (POSA)] and Small Savings accounts already linked to POSAS as on 31.7.2017 shall be Opened automatically as Basic Savings Account (zero balance account) with Specific coding “Interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments“.

However, only one basic savings account shall be opened for one person and it shall be linked with CIF or/and Aadhaar. These are not normal POSA accounts, as these can be opened on zero balance for purposes such as MGNREGS etc. Interest on these accounts with this coding will be paid at POSA rates. Since some movement to Senior Citizens’ Welfare Fund (SCWF) could happen from these Basic Savings (Zero Balance) accounts with coding “Interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments”, DoP may make suitable electronic tracking of the maturity date of various instruments credited into this account, in order to move correct amounts to SCWF on appropriate dates.

(ii) The Department of Posts shall not open normal Post Office Savings Accounts only for the purpose of crediting interest/maturity value of Small Savings Instruments even if the customer is willing to do so.  Interest/maturity value has to be credited to a Basic Savings Account only.

(iii) No agency charges shall be paid by the Ministry of Finance for such Basic savings accounts “opened for crediting interest and maturity value of Small Savings instruments, as these are opened only for administrative ease.

(iv) The client may be kept informed of the movement of amounts into Basic Savings account at the time of maturity. These facilitate electronic transactions and discourage cash transactions. The client can withdraw the amount through ATM cards and need not approach the office for withdrawal.

(v) As soon as Reserve Bank of India permits NEFT and RTGS facility to DoP with other banks, Department of Posts shall credit interest and maturity value of instruments into ‘the savings account of the customer’s choice’ through these electronic modes, irrespective of whether that savings account is with DoP or any other bank. The need of opening Basic Savings Account would cease in those cases where the depositor has an existing saving account with a Bank.

2. This has the approval of Joint Secretary (Budget).

Cabinet approves Cadre Review of Indian Posts & Telecommunications Accounts and Finance Service Group “A”

Cabinet approves Cadre Review of Indian Posts & Telecommunications Accounts and Finance Service Group “A”

 

The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved the first Cadre Review of Indian Posts & Telecommunications Accounts and Finance Service (IP&TAFS) with the following salient features:

(a) Reduction of the total strength of the cadre from 420 to 376.

(b) Creation of one Apex level post of Controller General of Communication Accounts (CGCA).

(c) Creation of one additional HAG+ level post taking the grade strength to 2.

(d) Creation of two additional HAG level posts taking the grade strength from 6 to 8.

(e) Creation of 18 additional SAG level posts taking the grade strength from 37 to 55.

(f) Reduction in JAG level posts from 111 to 90.

(g) Reduction in STS level posts from 198 to 86.

(h) Creation of 21 JTS level posts taking the grade strength from 67 to 88.

(i) Creation of 46 Posts to be operated as Reserves

Background:

Indian Posts & Telecommunications Accounts and Finance Service Group “A” was constituted in 1972 and caters to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and the Department of Posts (DoP).

In Department of Telecommunications, the IP&TAFS performs the functions of assessment and collection of license fee/ spectrum usage charges, spectrum auction, USO scheme monitoring and subsidy management, exchequer control, budgeting, accounting, pension disbursement, internal audit and finance advice. In the Department of Posts, the IP&TAFS is entrusted with the functions of finance advice, budgeting, tariff and costing, accounting and internal audit.

There has been a paradigm shift in the role of Department of Telecommunications as well as the Department of Posts in recent years. In the Telecom sector, the role of the Department of Telecommunications has transformed from primarily being a Service provider, Regulator and Policy maker into the present structure whereby the Department is primarily responsible for Policy making, Licensing and Universal Service Obligation. Receipts from Department of Telecommunications, primarily License Fee, Spectrum Usage Charges and Spectrum Auction Value constitute one of the largest source of non-tax revenue for the Government of India.

Similarly, the bundle of services offered by Department of Posts has undergone a quantitative and qualitative change and the Department has ventured into areas of retailing, banking, insurance, digitizing operations etc. Further, the audit mechanism in both the Departments needs to be strengthened.

These facts coupled with the stagnation in various grades of the service necessitated a review of the structure of IP&TAFS.

DoP starts logo contest for payments bank with Rs 50k prize

DoP starts logo contest for payments bank with Rs 50k prize

The Department of Posts today started a contest inviting logo design and tagline for its payments bank from the public with a prize money of Rs 50,000 for the winner.

“The Department of Posts on June 10, 2016, launched a logo and tagline design contest for the soon to be set up India Post Payments Bank on the MyGov website. The contest is open to all Indian citizens, institutions, agencies and entities for one month until July 9, 2016,” the Postal Department said in a statement.

The Union Cabinet on Wednesday cleared proposal to set up India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) with a corpus of Rs 800 crore and a plan for 650 branches operational by September 2017. It will be expanded further to cover the entire country by the end of 2018-19.

“The best entry will be awarded Rs 50,000. A panel of eminent designers and experts will help shortlist 20 best entries which will thereafter be put up for voting on the MyGov platform for the final selection of the winner,” the statement said.

The government has earlier accepted new sign of the rupee and the Swachh Bharat logo from public contests.

The department said it wants to connect with and involve the people of India in designing “the DNA” of the India Post Payments Bank.

“One of the guiding principles of the India Post Payments Bank would be co-creating value propositions and products with its customers and other stakeholders. The present contest is the first step towards this ongoing engagement. It has also initiated a nationwide survey to understand the needs of different segments of customers,” the statement said.

The India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) will offer digitally enabled payments, banking and remittance services of all kinds between entities and individuals and also provide access to insurance, mutual funds, pension and credit products in partnership with third-party financial service providers and banks.

Initially most of the 3.5 lakh workforce will be posted on deputation who will be gradually be replaced by fresh recruits.

Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has asked the Postal Department to hire an MD and CEO of the IPPB by August and set up a selection committee for hiring a chief financial officer by June 15.

2,590 post offices have core banking facilities

2,590 post offices have core banking facilities

Agartala: Even as the Reserve Bank of India is expected to give Department of Posts (DoP) payment bank licence by September, there are 2,590 post offices in the country with core banking facilities, Communication and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said today.

“I want to change the profile of the post office by extending its service to the poorer section of the people. We have applied for a payment bank licence with the RBI to bring a large section of unbanked populace of the country into the banking space,” the Union Minister said.

There were only 236 post offices under core banking facilities, but after the current NDA government came to power last year, 2,590 post offices have now core banking facilities, he said.

The minister today dedicated the core banking service of Agartala Post Office and laid the foundation stone for Dimapur Mukhya Dak Ghar in Nagaland here by remote control.

At present, post offices offer savings bank accounts, but cannot have credit or overdraft facilities.

Under payment banking licence an entity would be allowed to accept deposits, facilitate remittances and payments, but cannot lend.

“I want Indian post offices to have all modern and digital facilities. I want a person working at a metropolitan city get the facility to remit money to his mother through the post office. I want women working in village community centres get medical facilities by digitally linking them with good doctors,” he said.

The minister said the Centre wants to convert the country into a Digital India where a poor person can use smartphones and avail all modern facilities.

“At present there are 98 crore mobile phones, which will cross 100 crore soon and there are 30 crore internet connections in the country, which will also increase with the growing demand,” Prasad said adding, all gram panchayats in the country would be connected with optical fibre connections.

Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS: NFPE writes to DoP

Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS: NFPE writes to DoP

No. PF-Misc/2015

Dated 21th March, 2015

To

The Secretary
Department of Posts
Government of India
Dak Bhawn
New Delhi – 110001

Sub: Pension payment for the month of March 2015 through POSB functioning under CBS – regarding.

Madam,

Your kind attention is invited to the fact that last year on 1st April, 2014 no payment of pension could be disbursed through POSB on the request of Infosys due to some technical problems in the CBS. In fact all SB transactions were suspended on that day. Many pensioners were made to return home empty handed without drawing their pension on that day.

This year 1st April is followed by two holidays on 2nd and 3rd April for Mahavir jayanthi and Good Friday and therefore any recurrence of previous problem on 1st April will cause heavy hardships on pensioners as they could not draw their pension until 4th April, 2015.

It is therefore requested to kindly intervene in the matter to prevent any such recurrence this year and if suspension of all SB transactions on 1st April is unavoidable, then necessary instructions may please be issued to all concerned for effecting payment of pension on 31st March, 2015 itself irrespective of the fact that no payment or pension payment is normally done on the closing day of the financial year.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

(R.N. Parashar)
Secretary General
