Failure Transactions handling in CFMS going forward
To ease the process of handling of failure transactions and to reduce the time lag, some modifications are introduced and the treasury role is eliminated in this process as there is no audit involved in processing of failed payments and it is the responsibility of the DDO to identify the right beneficiary and correct the bank account details of such beneficiary. The process of failure transactions handling is detailed below: HOO shall configure the workflow to authorise one person for failed payment request access in OTHERS tab under BLM Submitter Workflow. This configuration is pre-requisite to get the display of failure transactions. In case of regular vendors i.e. employees / DDO vendors / some third party vendors who were registered, the corrections to the Bank Account number and IFSC code are to be carried out first in Beneficiary Master through Beneficiary creation request and Master Records have to be updated first. In case of Other one time vendors who were not registered, e.g. Scholarship Beneficiaries, corrections can be made in the screen available to authorised person who has access to failed payment request function. Once Bank account number and IFSC code details are updated, authorised person will save and submit these details. All such submitted transactions are processed for payment by CFMS automatically. Once payment is done, the status will be updated both in beneficiary account statement and in bill status.
For any reason, if the transaction is failed again, the same will be communicated to the authorized person who deals with failure transactions handling process and the same procedure as above shall be adopted for reprocess.
Encashment of Earned Leave (EEL) in case of Retired / Deceased employees
Provision for EEL Bill in case of Retired employees as well as Deceased employees is available in CFMS. The detailed procedure for creation and submission of EEL bill is detailed below: In Case of Retired Employee: The provision for creation of EEL bill is available in HR Bills category under “Encashment of EL”. The Maker who is assigned with relevant HOAs under MH 2071 can create the bill duly selecting the Retired employee as Beneficiary. In Case of Deceased Employee: The provision for creation of EEL bill is available in HR Bills category under “DA Arrears and Encashment of EL for deceased employees”. In this the maker can select any beneficiary i.e. employee / pensioner / third party beneficiary.
GPF final payment
GPF/Class-IV GPF Final payment in respect of employees died while in service has to be paid to the nominees or legal heirs of the deceased employee. To facilitate this, a provision is available to pay the amount to third party beneficiaries as well as employee/pension vendors. Therefore, the DDOs can make these payments under GPF final payments in HR bill type by selecting loans and advances category.
In Case of Retired Employees : Gratuity payment payable to retired Government employees shall be prepared in IMPAcT-Pension system and migrated to CFMS for processing and payment. In case of Deceased Employees : Gratuity in case of deceased Govt. employees has to be paid to legal heirs/nominees. These payments are facilitated directly in CFMS. The Treasury Officers can prepare Gratuity bills by selecting Pensionary charges category under HR Bill type. The DDOs can pay the Gratuity amount to any type of beneficiary i.e., employee/pensioner/third parties.
Remittance of GPF/APGLI Challans
The employees working in foreign Service have to pay their GPF/APGLI/CPS/AIS GPF/ZPPF deductions through challans. The remitters have to pay these challans under “employee challan” option in CFMS. The remitter should fill in the employee wise and month wise subscription details in the challan in order to generate challan number. Further the form validates the availability of subscriber category and account numbers i.e. GPF, APGLI account numbers etc. in CFMS. If the Employee’s Master record doesn’t have these Account numbers and Remitter tried to generate the challan, System will give message that particular employee.
is not assigned to that specific service. Such of the employees have to update their GPF/APGLI/Class IV GPF/ CPS account numbers in CFMS before remitting these challans.
Changing of employee positions due to transfers/promotions
Whenever, there is change in position for any employee due to transfer/ transfer by promotion, such requests have to be made to CFMS via helpdesk. The CFMS team would incorporate such changes in the system.
Working arrangements/ FAC/Deputations
CFMS central team has been receiving several requests to accommodate working arrangements made by respective departments in CFMS. It is noticed that the departments are issuing orders of FAC on a position where another employee, who is deputed to some other office, is drawing salary. Further the employees who are kept FAC to a position are relieved from his original position (post), whereas FAC is meant for discharging duties on a vacant position along with the duties of original position to avoid dislocation of work due to vacant position. Such working arrangements cannot be accommodated in CFMS as these are against to the rules in vogue.
Procedure for Preparation and Presentation of R & R (Rehabilitation and Resettlement ) Bills
R&R is a major component of the Capital Expenditure of the state as it relates to the rehabilitation and resettlement in relation to the major infrastructure projects undertaken by the state. Works related to R&R are part of the irrigation projects like Dams, Canals and Barrages; power projects; major industry etc. R & R bills fall into the following categories: R&R Cash Awards/Benefits; R&R Works; R&R related Land Acquisition Charges; and R & R Establishment Charges.
Prior to the introduction of CFMS, all R&R bills were being presented to PAO/APAO (Works) in the BMS portal by the Joint Collectors (JCs), who are the designated Project Administrators of all the R & R activities, through the Joint Collector’s office login IDs provided in BMS portal.
With the implementation of CFMS, a Workflow process has been introduced through which every DDO office is given an opportunity to define their Maker, Checker and Submitter for preferring bills to the PAO/Treasury. While bringing a level of accountability as well as transparency in to the process, this configurable workflow also provides flexibility and transaction security. Considering the huge volume of the expenditure it is very essential to ensure the integrity and the security of the transactions. This process has posed certain limitations from the perspective of the R&R as the JCs cannot prefer the bills in this process due to the way they are positioned in the organizational structure as they are part of the District Collectorate and not independent offices.
