Ref: This CHQ Email No. No.AIPRPA/2/3/2016 Dated 16.03.2016
Kindly refer to our email dated 16.03.2016 requesting for causing customizing the Finacle Software for POSB so as to take the difference in functioning between the Banks and Post Offices with the latter always work on 1st April (except it being Sunday) to find a permanent remedy to Pensioners drawing pension through POSB.
This Association of All India Postal & RMS Pensioners hastens to bring to your kind notice that this year also due to non-functioning of Finacle on 1st April followed by a Sunday on 2nd April, the Pensioners drawing pension through POSB in Post Offices will be able to draw pension only on 3rd April. On our representation in the month of March 2015 and March 2016, payment of pension manually by Post Offices was ordered in Circles where Finacle has been installed. As the Pensioners are heaving a sigh of relief to witness an end to the hiccups in POSB in the wake of demonetization, we are again facing this problem of closure of POSB counters consecutively for two days. We therefore request for similar orders issued like earlier years in Andhra, Kerala, Tamilnadu and Karnataka for manual payment of pension on 1st April, 2017 to mitigate the problem of abnormal delay in drawing pension by senior citizens.
This Association would be grateful if necessary instructions are urgently issued for manual payment of pension to Pensioners of POSB in such Circles under which Finacle software is used for POSB operations.
