account.

P a g e 2 | 77

(v) Dormant SB account closure issue

Issue Reported : Since the SB account being closed is dormant, the account closure transaction is
not verified and gives error.

Solution
The closure process has to be cancelled and the account status to be modified to Live before closing
it.
Steps
a) Cancel the closure operation in HCAAC menu. While cancelling an user info will be shown
that the transaction has to be manually reversed. After the cancel operation in HCAAC, the
transaction has to be deleted in HTM.
b) If the account has to be closed , then after cancelling the transaction in HTM menu by
selecting Modify function thru menu CASBAM.
c) Modify the account status of the SB account from Silent to Live and verify it

d) Close the account now in HCAAC and verify it


(vi) Even after deleting RD Standing Instructions using HSSIM menu, Savings account
is not allowed to close.
After deleting the instruction serial number in teller, same has to be verified in supervisor.
Then only closure can be done.
(vii) Trial closure for SB and PPF accounts
There is no Trial Closure for SB and PPF. However, to see closing interest, following process is to be
followed: It involves two components-Closing accrued Interest for completed months and balance
outstanding in the account.
To know the closing accrued interest till date (for completed months) the user has to execute
HACACCR menu and see the Report either in HPR or through HAITINQ menu.
HACACCR menu execution
Enter the A/c Id, wait for the name of depositor to appear. Compare name of depositor to ensure that
correct account number is entered. Keep the field 'From Date' as blank and Enter BOD date in the
field ' To date' and submit as shown in the screen shot below:

This will generate a report HPR .


The closing accrued interest will be arrived after rounding off the amount shown in HPR to next
rupee. The total amount to be paid to depositor will be arrived at by adding the balance in the

account shown in HACLI/HACCBAL Menu option and the closing accrued interest.
This amount is to be shown to depositor who wants to close the account. If he agrees, actual
closure has to be done.
In case SB7A is received from BO for closing sanction of a Savings Account, this amount is to be
entered in SB7A by Supervisor with the remarks on the top that "This sanction is valid up to last
working day of the current month" . Sending the closing sanction to BO should be avoided in the
last week of the month.

verified. This activity should be performed by Hos only where there are more than one Supervisor.

(iv) How to Refund TDS when wrongly deducted


As and when it is found that TDS is wrongly deducted, following process should be followed to refund
TDS:Write an error in the Error Book showing detail of account number and amount of TDS wrongly
deducted. Go to HRFTDS menu and enter the SCSS account ID in the field From A/c ID & To A/c ID
and select trantype as Transfer. Cash option should not be used in trantype. On clicking GO, the TDS

has savings account in any CBS post office or if customer wants cash to be paid, enter office account
0340 and pay cash. In the evening, show this amount as TDS Refund in the daily account or cash
book.
Note 1:- Refund has to be made only before submission of tax returns by respective HOs. No TDS
refund should be made after remitting TDS to IT Department. Customers can get reimbursement only
from IT department after filing returns.
Note 2:- that wherever From A/c ID & To A/c ID fields are shown in Finacle, it refers to a range of
accounts (eg. from 1 to 100) and not transfer-from and transfer-to account ID.

(v) MIS and SCSS/TD interests are not getting paid from sundry even though there is proper
interest outflow in HTDTRAN menu or Interest Amount not fetched in HTM.
a) Please check the accounts in HTDTRAN whether interest posting for the quarter has happened on
30/06/2014 BOD. If the interest is paid to the SB account of the customer, it will not be available in
HTM.
b) If Interest Posting entry is not shown, then check whether any verification is pending in these
accounts in CSCAM/CMISAM menu and do the verification. Interest will get posted during the next
EOD.
c) Also, check the EOD reports (in the HPR of the user who ran HSCOLD menu on 28/06/2014) and
check for "Interest Application Failure Reports" which should contain the list of accounts for which
interest could not be posted and the reason thereof.
This is mainly due to faulty process of interest payment from sundry account by mentioning wrong
MIS or SCSS accounts in reference number column in the additional part transaction screen. Further,
in the start and end amount field, no amount is to be entered in additional part transaction details
screen.
After making sure of interest posting in HTDTRAN, use HFTI menu to check whether the interest
amount is already paid. The filters to be filled in HFTI are:

A/c id: SUNDRY ACCOUNT NUMBER (335/337/338)


Reference No.: MIS account number
From date: Interest posted date (interest due date / interest posted date as shown in
HTDTRAN)
To date: Current date
Click on GO

This will list all the transactions w.r.t the account entered in Reference Number

(vi) MIS, SCSS or TD Interest not credited to MIS/SCSS/TD sundry accounts or customers
SB Accounts
Interest not credited to Sundry or SB accounts for TDA products is mostly due to unverified audit
transactions. Same can be checked in supervisor level by invoking HAFI menu. After verifying it,

P a g e 10 | 77

interest will be credited after EOD. HIOT (before migration interest) and HTDTRAN should be
checked for knowing interest outflow.

(vii) SCSS Interest amount differs.


It is mainly because of deduction of Tax at source. For those accounts without PAN Card 20% tax will
be deducted and accounts with PAN Card and without 15G or 15H, 10% tax will be deducted.
Availability of the PAN Card can be checked at CIF level. Any Modification done in the CIF level as
regards Income proof has to be verified by the Supervisor.

(viii). Difference in MIS & SCSS interest in First month/quarter after migration.
This issue is being raised by many post offices.

SCSS
When any office is migrated to CBS, while generating interest for the first quarter after migration, one
days interest is deducted by Finacle from the due quarterly interest. This interest belong to the day of
account opening given by Sanchay Post. This one day interest will be paid on the day of closure by
Finacle. This is happening due to fundamental difference between Sanchay Post and Finacle.
Sanchay Post is paying interest for the day of account opening and not for the day of closure e.g
account opened on 3.4.2013 will be matured in Sanchay Post on 3.4.2018. Sanchay Post will pay
interest from 3.4.2013 to 2.4.2018 and payment will be made on 3.4.2018.In Finacle, with same
example, interest will be calculated and paid from 4.4.2013 to 3.4.2018 and payment will be made on
3.4.2018. Total interest in both the cases will be same. When account is opened in Sanchay Post and
closed in Finacle, one days interest will be paid extra. Therefore, this extra interest is being deducted
in Finacle during first payment after migration

SCSS/MIS
In Sanchaya, rounding off was being done every quarter/month to the higher side of a rupee if interest
is in 50 paisa or more but Finacle adjusts rounding off every quarter/month to restrict total interest to
the actual rate of interest. Therefore, any extra interest already paid in Sanchay Post due to higher
rounding off is also deducted during interest credit of first quarter/month after migration.
For migrated MIS Accounts, Finacle is calculating interest on basis of number of days in a month from
the date of opening of account.
Due to this, interest is not calculating equally for every month. This issue has been taken up with
Infosys for correction. Till it is rectified, customer should be convinced that less interest credited/paid if
any will be adjusted during next month.
Sanchay Post interest paid details can be known by invoking menu TIPM. Unpaid interest in Sanchay
Post can be viewed in HIOT and interest calculated after migration can be viewed through HTDTRAN.

Sample Calculation of Interest in Finacle


1) Sanchay Post calculates interest from the date of opening till the date prior to maturity date.
Example account - 0494076240, Sanchay Post calculates interest 30/09/2009-29/09/2014. No interest
is paid for 30/09/2014. Finacle calculates interest from the next day of opening till the date of maturity.
In this case from 01/10/2009-30/09/2014. So, the first interest payment of Rs.24/- is excess.
2) Sanchay Post rounds off the interest amount during every quarter; in this case Rs.2227.5 is
rounded off as Rs.2228. Finacle does the rounding off / flooring off on such accounts on alternative
quarters. Please view the Flow tab for this account for more clarity.
3) For broken periods, Finacle calculates interest as follows (Eg. account-0494079867):
Quarterly amount / 3 => 2227.5/3 = 742.5

P a g e 11 | 77

(Monthly amount / number of days in the month) * number of interest-eligible days =>
(742.5/31)*21 = 502.98 rounded off to 503.
4) This amount is also visible in the Flow tab of the account.
So, the interest amount depends not only on the principal amount but also on the date of opening
and the number of days in the month.

(x) How to handle Withdrawal of Excess amount from MIS Account in case of death of one of
joint holder where amount invested is more than the prescribed limit for single holder.?
In case of Joint MIS Account where one of the joint holder dies and the investment in the account(s) is
more than the MIS investment limit fixed for single holder, following process has to be followed:The user needs to withdraw the excess amount by selecting part closure in the menu HCAACTD.
Once HCAACTD is invoked the user needs to enter the date of death of the holder in closure value
date
and excess amount
to be withdrawn
in
the
withdrawn
amount
field.
Once the user goes into the closure details page of the menu HCAACTD, Collect penal flag has to be
chosen as No and in closure exceptions tab, closure reason code has to be selected as DTCLM.
E.g. Date of closure when legal heir asks for removal of name of joint holder due to death = 10-102013. Date of death - 7-7-2013. So in the closure value date, the user will enter date as 7-7-2013.In
the above scenario, conversion has to be done at account level from joint to single as well.
For this the following steps need to be followed once part closure is done at HCAACTD:If the deceased share holder is not the main holder of the account then in the menu CMISAM, the
deceased
share
holder
has
to
be
marked
as
deleted.
If the deceased share holder is main holder of the account, then user needs to invoke menu HCCA
and change the CIf id of the main holder to that of remaining holder, who would be the main holder in
the account. e.g. CIF A, B and C are joint holder. CIF A dies and remaining holder want to make CIF B
as main holder. Then the user will invoke menu HCCA and change the CIF id from CIF A to CIF B. (In
Finacle, First Holder is the main Holder)

(xi) When Account Holder of MIS/SCSS/TD scheme approaches CBS Post Office, where
account stands for transfer of accounts before maturity to another CBS Post Office.
The Counter PA or Supervisor or Postmaster should politely request the Account holder that since
CBS has been implemented in the office, where he wants to transfer Accounts, there is no need for
transfer of Accounts as he/she, on maturity, can take payment from any CBS Post Office after giving
fresh KYC documents. Whenever any account is closed at the office other than the office where
account was opened, payment should not be made by cash in any case and payment should either be
made by crossed cheque or credit to savings account (where required KYC documents have been
taken). Monthly/quarterly or Yearly interest can also be withdrawn at any CBS Post Office.

(xii) When Account Holder of MIS/SCSS/TD scheme approaches any CBS Post Office for
taking interest or closing accounts.
The Counter PA should first go to HACLI and see that Account(s) are genuine and stand in Finacle.
He/She will verify signatures of the holder(s) on the withdrawal Form or Account Closure Form with
that available in Finacle. Once, it is confirmed from the signatures that holder is genuine, payment of
interest should be made to the account holder as per process being followed for normal withdrawal. If
account closure is requested, take SB10(b) form, fresh ID as well as Address Proof. After proper
verification of KYC documents, Accounts(s) first to be transferred IN by using HACXFSOL. Whenever
any account is closed at the office other than the office where account was opened, in any case,
payment should not be made by cash and payment should either be made by crossed cheque or
credit to savings account (where required KYC documents have been taken) only. If holder wants reinvestment, closing proceeds should be transferred to Re-investment office account (0387) and credit

P a g e 12 | 77

re-invested amount into newly opened account/certificate. Remaining amount can either be credited
to savings account or paid back by cheque.
SB10(b) and KYC documents should be sent to CPC of the office where payment is being made. CPC
will scan the document and attach the same with CIF.

(xiii) When any claimant presents documents for preferring claim in respect of any
MIS/SCSS/TD/RD/PPF account(s) stand at another CBS Office alongwith claim
application form for payment or transfer of account (RD/TD/SCSS) in the name of
claimant.
Date should be noted in the relevant field in CIF of deceased depositor. Follow the procedure laid
down for settlement of deceased claim case. After sanction of claim, follow the procedure mentioned
in scenario 5 above. If claimant wants to transfer RD/TD/SCSS account in his/her name, open new
CIF (based on new Account Opening Form (AOF)} in his/her name (if not already exists) and attach
the existing Accounts with new CIF. Name of holder can be changed through menu HAALM.
Claim Application Form and KYC documents of claimant or Account Opening Form (AOF) should be
sent to CPC of the office where payment is being made or claim is sanctioned. CPC will scan the
document and attach the same with CIF.

(xiv) TDS is being deducted even after entering 15G or 15H forms.
This happened because while entering 15G or 15H, users have not changes status of Tax as
No Tax. There are certain cases where this has happened when 15G or 15H was entered
before end of April 2014. In such cases, user has to go to FIF modification and just click on
submit. Status will be changed to No Tax. In future, this problem has been resolved.

4. RD Issues.
(i) RD Premature Closure when requested within 3 years
Counter PA should be careful while closing RD account. System will THROW EXCEPTION if the RD
account is closed within the lock in period and if exception is accepted, it will allow premature closure.
Therefore, Counter PA should not accept the EXCEPTION and should not proceed further. If
EXCEPTION is accepted, Counter PA will be responsible for closure.

(ii) Death Closure of RD products


During closure of RD once the customer dies, the user will have to update Date of death in CIF after
marking as "Deceased" and then invoke the menu CRDCAAC and select death closure as Yes and
then select whether PSS closure is applicable or not. Date of death will automatically be taken from
CIF.

(iii) Is it possible to waive the default fee for defaulted RD accounts in Finacle?
Solution: No. Finacle will automatically calculate the default fee. It is not possible to waive the default
fee.

(iv) Can RD accounts be extended?


Solution: Extension is automatic in Finacle on the day of maturity. On the day of maturity, during EOD,
eligible RD accounts where 60 months intallments are deposited will be extended for a further period
of 60 months. If any account is missed, it can also be extended manually using PRDCM menu

(v) Can the maturity date deferred


Solution: Customer has the liberty to have maximum of 4 defaults on the day of maturity. Maturity date
can be deferred equivalent to the number of defaults using the menu PMDDRD(Maturity Date
Deferment for Recurring Deposit). During the deferred period, defaults deposits can be paid without
default fee.

(vi) In case if there are cases of default and rebate in account, cheque should be prepared
for what amount.
Solution: In case if the monthly deposit is Rs.1000/- and there is a default of Rs.10/- (one month
default) and the customer is to pay for 7 monthly deposits to get rebate of Rs.100/-. Total cheque
amount should be
Total 7 months deposit 7 x 1000 Rs.7000
Default
- Rs.10
Rebate
- Rs.100
Total cheque amount

- 7000+10-100=6910

(vii) Is it mandatory to open RD Loan account separately for taking half withdrawal
For Half Withdrawal, RD Loan accounts needs to be opened in Finacle. Corresponding RD account
will be collateral for this RD Loan account. RD Loan account number will be the same RD account
number but suffixed by 1. If RD Loan Principal is outstanding during migration, RD Loan account
will be created automatically.

(viii) Whether RD Loan account number will be created during migration if RD PRINCIPAL
IF FULLY PAID and Interest is pending or partially paid

P a g e 14 | 77

No. RD Loan account will not be created if the RD Loan Principal is fully paid. For RD Loan interest,
LIEN will be marked for the corresponding RD account. Before closure, LIEN amount should be
collected and LIEN to be removed by invoking the menu HALM.

(ix) Can the RD account be closed without closing the RD Loan Account?
No. RD accounts cannot be closed without closing the Loan account as this RD is marked as
COLLATERAL for the RD Loan accounts.

(x) Can the RD account be transferred without transferring the RD Loan account?
solution -RD Account can be transferred only when loan account is closed.
(xi) What is the Procedure of RD account closure when RD Loan was taken?
Premature Closure
Invoke the RD Closure menu CRDCAAC from Operator Login. System will automatically deduct the
RD Loan amount and interest will be calculated on SB Rate of interest as per rule. Loan interest will
not be calculated. RD Loan account balance will become 0 but will not be closed. Loan account with
Zero balance should be remained as it is and not closed. No need to invoke HLAUPAY or HPAYOFF
for repaying the Loan amount.

On Maturity
RD Loan amount should be adjusted before closing the RD account. Invoke the menu HPAYOFF
(Loan Pay Off Process) to pay the pending principal along with interest. Interest will be calculated at
the prescribed rate. Total amount displayed to be collected from the customer. In case of transfer,
select the repayment account of customer or office account from where the loan amount is adjusted.
Supervisor need to verify the same. Invoke the menu HCAAC to close the RD Loan account and
verify the same. Invoke the menu CRDAAC to close the RD Account.

(xii) Can the loan amount be less than 50% of sanctioned amount?
While opening Loan Account invoking menu CAOLARD, 50% of RD balance will be sanctioned. But
the operator has the option to modify (reduce) the sanction amount but the amount should be in
multiples of Rs.5/- but sanctioned amount cannot be increased. LARDD menu to be invoked to
disburse the loan amount.

(xiii) Is it mandatory that RD Loan amount to be accompanied with RD monthly deposit?


No. As per existing rule, RD Loan cannot be made without depositing the monthly deposits. But, in
CBS Post Offices, since RD Loan is separate account in Finacle, system will allow you to pay only the
RD Loan amount without paying the monthly deposits.

(xiv) Will system allow Loan / Half withdrawal in extended period?


Yes. As per rule, only one Half withdrawal ie Loan is allowed in the entire life term of RD
account ie 60 months if the account satisfies the eligibility conditions.
(xv) Why Default fee is displayed even after paying the current month deposit?
This is common complaint made by Post Offices. In Finacle there is no concept of PAID FOR THE
MONTH OF like in Sanchay Post. From account open date to current month, number of months will
be calculated and if the number of months paid is less than the number of months to be paid, then
system will consider it as DEFAULT. In case if there are gaps in between ie intermittent gaps in
sanchay post ie for eg - 3 intermittent defaults, Finacle will push all the deposits and last three months

P a g e 15 | 77

will be shown as default even though the current month deposit has been made. Therefore, ask the
customer to pay first for the defaulted month.

(xvi) How Default fee is calculated in Finacle?


In Finacle Default fee will be calculated as per the new Default Fee structure as per recently modified
rate ie 5 paisa for every 5 rupees and Re.1/- for Rs.100/- deposit instead of Rs.2/-

(xvii) Can the current month deposit be paid without paying the defaulted instalment or
without paying the default fee?
No. Current month deposit cannot be paid without paying the defaulted instalment. Default fee also
cannot be waived. Only in case of Maturity deferred cases, defaulted instalments can be paid without
default fee in the deferred period.

(xviii) Error A time stamp error occurred during RD account closure?


This is happening due to Verification pending for some modification made in the respective account.
Verify the account by invoking the menu CRDACM by supervisor and then proceed for closure.

(xix) Error Parent record does not exist for the record 0000123456 during bulk posting by
invoking the menu HAGTXP.
This happening due to following reason:When single cheque is given for multiple RD accounts,
(a) cheque number will be available in first record under the field CHEQUE NO. FOR RD
INSTALMENT in HAGTXP menu.
(b) For all other accounts linked to this cheque, the cheque number will be available in the field
CHEQUE Remarks
(c) Ready for Posting flag should not be removed for the record which has Cheque No. for RD
instalment (a) If this record is removed, balance records will fail with above error.

(xx) Error E4221 while closing Loan account?


Solution
The above error occurs when the balance is not zero for the loan account. This means that payoff has
not been done for the account. Please complete the payoff process and then close the loan account

(xxi) Error P39 coming in RD loan account payoff done through cash receipt
This error will be thrown in offices migrated in the middle of the month. (ie on or after 2 nd)
In case of Loan Disbursement or Loan Repayment, the value date will be automatically changed to
01st of the month as interest is calculated from the 1 st of the month for loans. As Cash account of that
office will not be available as on 1 st (since the office has migrated in the middle of the month) this error
is thrown in Supervisor while verification. This error will be thrown only in the month of migration and
from 2nd month cash mode can be used for repayment or disbursement.
Workaround to overcome this error
In case of Loan disbursement Instead of Cash (even if it is below Rs.20,000) select Transfer and
show RD Loan Disbursement office account (Account number ending with 323) and pay by cheque or
cash from this office account. ( CTM menu is to be used for this )

P a g e 16 | 77

In case of Loan repayment Instead of repaying through cash accept loan repayment through
Transfer. Transfer can be from RD Loan Repayment office Account (Account number ending with 323)
or SB account of customer (if available) (CTM Menu to be used for this).

(xxii) Why RD SI executing after EOD of 15th?


While configuring standing instructions of SB to RD, option should be selected as (B) i.e.
After change of Date. Otherwise, SI execution will happen after EOD of 15th.
(xxiii) How to execute RD Trial Closure:For invoking Trial Closure of RD account, user has to invoke CRDAAC menu. Select, trial closure and
go to HPR to see amount to be paid after closure.
Customer should be told about the amount of interest and if he agrees, fill up amount in SB7A and get
the signatures of customer on receipt portion. After that, actual closure should be invoked.
In case, SB7A is received from BO alongwith Passbook for sanction, amount of principle and interest
should be entered on the Warrant of Payment Side under signatures of APM/SPM and a remark on
the top of the SB7A should be written as "Sanction Valid till last working day of the month only". Other
procedure as laid down in BO Procedure document should be followed
(xxv) Issue Reported : When the user tried to invoke HAGTXP menu in Modify mode, an error is
displayed as Invalid Agent Type and Scheme Code Combination.
Solution : SAS type of Agents do not have access to post RD bulk posting. The Agent Type for that
particular Agent ID needs to be modified as either PRS or MPB in HDSAMM menu. Post this
modification, user will be able to do posting in HAGTXP menu. Appropriate Agent ID need to be
modified as the commission structure differs for both.

P a g e 17 | 77

5. AGENT PORTAL
(i) What is the procedure to get eBanking User Id and Password?
Solution: eBanking user ID and Password will be forwarded on the day of migration by DMCC team
only for agents (MPKBY/SAS/PRSS) who were linked with SB account in Sanchay Post. For agents
created in Finacle after migration , DSA ID along with SOL ID and other mandatory details should be
sent to fsihelpdesk for generation of eBanking User Id and Password.

(ii) eBanking user Id and Password created in wrong name.


Solution: eBanking user id and password will be generated in the name of the Primary (First) account
holder of the linked SB commission credit account. Suppose an MPKBY agent Kala has linked Joint
Account as commission credit account with Primary(First) account holder name as Ravi, eBanking
user id will be generated in the name of RAVI only and not in the name of Kala. This will not have any
effect anywhere. If the agent wants eBanking User Id generated in their own name, either single
account should be given as commission credit account or their name should be primary account
holder in Joint accounts. This is added as a discrepancy in DBA Plus

(iii) Unable to Login. Please try again or contact bank for more details Agent Portal
Solution: Either the user name / password is incorrect or Agent portal not functioning. Agent portal
will not function when the Finacle Core is down

(iv) What to do when Agents User ID and password is locked due to wrong entry of
password for more than ten times.
Solution: Password will get locked if entered wrongly for 10 times. Agent should contact their
respective Post office and in turn PO will raise a request to CPC who in turn will raise ticket with
FSIhelpdesk with details of DSA ID and SOL ID to get the password reset for the agents. Agents
should not contact Help Desk directly.

(v) Whether SAS agents can use Agent Portal?


Solution: SAS agents will also be provided with eBanking User Id and Password. SAS agents can
logon to portal but no accounts will be linked to these agents. This DSA ID to be noted on the account
opening form for getting the commission credited to their SB accounts.

(vi) Agent Portal Host Error


Solution: Agent Portal is down or Finacle server is down. Try after sometime.

(vii) Agent Portal could not be logged on in newly migrated offices


Solution: Ensure whether the port access for accessing the agent portal is given by SIFY.

(viii) eBanking User Id and Password is generated more than once for many agents
Solution: eBanking user Id and Password will be generated for all the agents migrated to finacle
including license expired agents / duplicate agent id. In order to avoid this, ensure that the license
expired agents and duplicate IDs are not linked with SB account number.

(ix) No RD accounts are linked while logging in to portal


Solution:
During Go Live Migration - Transformation Layer, Agent Reconciliation excel sheet is shared with the
Postmaster to ensure 100% migration of agents. Finacle DSA ID, Agent Type and number of accounts

P a g e 18 | 77

columns are available. Postmaster to check the correct DSA ID from Reconciliation Excel and logon
by using that DSA ID before raising the issue.
Suppose if a single agent is having both SAS and MPKBY. Two ebanking user Id and Password will
be generated. Use the appropriate eBanking User Id. Suppose three more eBanking user Ids are
generated for the same agent due to duplicate IDs in Sanchay post, logon with appropriate eBanking
user ID.

(x) Some RD accounts are not linked / not visible in the Agent Portal
Solution: Discontinued / Closed accounts will not be visible in Agent Portal. Ensure that RD account
was linked to correct Agent in Sanchay Post. Inquire the RD account using CRDACM menu to check
the DSA ID linked. If any account is not linked to any agent, user should link that account with correct
DSA ID by using CRDACM menu.

along with monthly instalments. Suppose in an account with Rs.200/- denomination, there is a default
of one month. If the customer wants to get rebate, 6 months instalments has to be paid. Already one
default is there. Hence the customer should pay 7 months instalments to get rebate.
200 x 7 = Rs.1400, plus Default fee Rs.2/- less rebate Rs.12
Total cheque amount 1400 + 2 12 = Rs.1390/-

P a g e 42 | 77

(xvii) Errors and solution

In case after the cheques are lodged and while viewing the cheques lodged report, a message
No records present for the given criteria is available in cheque lodged report.

Reason: This is due to non verification of HOMSO by the supervisor

It is advisable, to use searcher for typing SORT CODE, as HOMSO doesnt validate for the
availability of SORT CODES in the database unlike ZONE. If any SORT CODES are not
available in the database uploading will fail at ZONE level.

(xviii) What to do when Posting of Inward Clearing Zone not going through.
Ans.- This issue was noticed in one of CBS post office because of the below issues .
Solution:- User failed to see from validation report in HPR that 'Total Amt. in Advice' and 'Total No. of
Instr. In Advice' in HMICZ menu was not entered hence the posting of the zone was not going
through.

(xix) Point to be remember:Once the zone is opened in HMICZ, the instruments are lodged in HICTM menu. Once the
instruments are all lodged and verified successfully, before suspending the zone in HMICZ, the 'Total
Amt. in Advice' and 'Total No. of Instr. In Advice' should be entered and then the zone should be
suspended.

(xx) Duplicate, Postdated instruments are getting lodged in Inward clearing zone and
postings are initiated.
For this, workaround has already been circulated by Directorate. To avoid this scenario,

Click on Show exceptions to view the error while lodging.

Validation run report should be compulsorily checked in HPR. Only when there are no
discrepancies in that report, postings should be initiated. Even amount and instrument statistics
should be updated properly before initiating postings. After posting is initiated statistics cannot
be modified.

(xxi) Outward reject instruments are not getting lodged in inward zone.
This is because in outward clearing zone, balance is not released to shadow balance. Only after
outward zone balance is released to shadow balance, outward rejection instruments can be lodged in
inward zone.

(xxii) Can the cheque cleared date be changed in Outward clearing?


Suppose if the cheques are sent for outward clearing on 01/08/2014 and scroll is received on
06/08/2014 with cheque clearing date as 04/08/2014, while regularizing the zone, cheque cleared
date will be by default the current date and there is no option to enter the actual cheque cleared date.
While funding new MIS/SCSS/TD/RD/NSC/PPF accounts opened or for subsequent deposit in
RD/PPF accounts, actual cheque cleared date should be entered in the Value date field.

(xxiii) How to handle Outstation Cheques in Finacle?


Use HIRM menu and follow below mentioned steps:a.

Invoke the menu HIRM.

P a g e 43 | 77

b.
The details of the cheque and the account number have to be keyed in using the Lodge
option.
c.

Finacle will automatically collect the collection charges.

d.

Verification should be done for the lodged cheque.

e.

Send the cheque physically to the outstation location.

f.
If the cheque is cleared - intimation coming from outstation location - the Realize function
needs to be invoked in HIRM menu and submitted.
g.
If the cheque is dishonoured - the dishonour function to be invoked and submitted in HIRM
menu option.

(xxiv) How to handle dishonoring charge when outstation cheque is dishonored.


In case of dishonor of Outstation Cheque, the user has to choose the charge event ID in HIRM menu
in change detail tab as dishonor (Not calculation just choose the only available value).

(xxv) What is the procedure for outstation ' AT PAR' cheques.


Solution : At Par cheques should be treated as local cheques and entered in the outward clearing
zone with other cheques. No outstation charges should be collected from AT Par cheques and these
cheques should not be sent out just like other Outstation Cheques.

already having any CIF.

At the time of migration, new CIF will be created for each depositor or guardian.

Account Holders who are able to sign.

This signature slip needs to be pasted on the SS Book for reference at the time of withdrawal till scanned
image of signatures are uploaded into Finacle by Circle Processing Centre (CPC).

This is to be implemented in HOs as well as SOs after migration to CBS.


In Finacle CBS, entering of Date of Birth for all accounts is mandatory.

Entering of Last name in also mandatory in Finacle CBS.

When there is no last name for a customer, first name should be entered as last name.
Since entering of Date of Birth is mandatory in Finacle CBS, it treats all depositors of age below 18 years
as minor.

When Minor attains majority, it stops transactions and allow transactions only when status of account is
changed from minor to normal.

of 18 years and change status of account from minor to normal.

Savings Account of the depositor during batch process.
Otherwise, interest will be credited into Sundry MIS/SCSS/TD Office Accounts created for each such
scheme.

to issue certificate.

executed (HDRP), the certificate balance from stock is reduced. Before handing over certificates
to holder, ensure that certificates are attached with the account number/Registration number.

(xi) Issue of certificates when stock is not available.

In Finacle CBS System, in such cases, receipt from NC4(a) has to be issued to the customer and it
should be ensured that only those denominations should be selected while opening account which can
be made available in the near future on receipt of stock as denomination once selected cannot be
changed later.

P a g e 73 | 77

receipt number in the relevant field in Finacle CBS.

Therefore, after Migration to CBS, RD Bulk Lists are to be accepted only through Agent Portal.
In Finacle CBS Application, there is no provision to accept accounts linked to MPKBY/PRSG
Agents/Leaders at counter.
For bulk acceptance of RD deposits from MPKBY Agents/PRSG Leaders, an Agent Portal has been
developed which can be accessed through DOP website using internet.
Any RD account during opening or after opening can be attached with any MPKBY Agent/PRSG
Leaders.
Once account is attached to the agent, deposit cannot be accepted at the counter in that account unless
depositor gives in writing to cancel the attachment with agent.
During migration, all accounts already attached with a particular agent in Sanchay Post will be attached
with the same agent in Finacle CBS application.
All MPKBY agents will be issued Login ID and Password to operate Agent Portal.
When agent logs in to Agent Portal, all live RD accounts attached with the agent will be visible to the
agent.
Agent can select the installment month. Default fee/ rebate will be calculated by the system.
Agent can select three different modes of deposits i.e cash, by POSB Cheque and by any other Bank
Cheque.

reached.

Agent can print the LIST by using any printer.
When agent comes to the post office with printed List(s) with either cash/POSB Cheque/other Bank
Cheques having reference numbers against each list.
Counter PA will enter the reference number printed on the List and will be able to see the List(s)
presented.
Counter PA will compare all the entries in the printed List with that in the Finacle CBS and see that there
is no change in the default fee or rebate on the day of presentation and accept the List after counting
cash or POSB Cheques.
CBS System will once again validate all the entries in the Finacle Core Banking Solution application and
accept the deposits.
If any deposit is rejected, Counter PA can print the revised LIST and return the excess money to agent.
Counter PA will post the eBanking reference ID and then Supervisor has to verify the posting.
Only, after Supervisor verifies the posting the list amount would be reflected in the LOT(Report No. 5 Agent listwise consolidation report).
Agent commission will be automatically credited into Agents savings account after deducting the TDS.
In case of other Bank cheques, Counter PA will not post the entries.
Cheque will first be sent for clearance after lodging them into Office Account called, Outward clearing
account 0017

P a g e 74 | 77

Once credit comes into this office account, the LIST is to be posted and system will debit that Office
Account.
All entries of all agent Lists will then be printed in the Counter LOT after verification by Supervisor.
In case, any agent finds it difficult to operate Agent Portal and brings either printed or handmade copy of
List, Counter PA can enter as Super User into Agent Portal and make entries on behalf of that agent.
After List is printed on behalf of agent, the rest is the same procedure.
There is no provision to keep the posting of RD agent list pending in Finacle CBS.
