The communication, dated 19th February 2024, addressed to all Heads of Circles, outlines the meticulous process undertaken to reconcile the Annual Interest data extracted from the Finacle system. This reconciliation exercise encompasses both pre-migration and post-migration periods, addressing any discrepancies that may have arisen due to migration issues within the Finacle platform.


The process involves several key steps:


Data Extraction: The Annual Interest data for schemes such as Savings Bank (SB), Public Provident Fund (PPF), Senior Citizens Savings Scheme (SSA), National Savings Scheme 87 (NSS87), and National Savings Scheme 92 (NSS92) has been extracted for the specified fiscal years in two phases - pre-migration and post-migration.


Sanitization of Data: Recognizing the impact of migration issues on data integrity, efforts have been made to sanitize the data based on reports received from various Circles. This includes the extraction of Annual Interest data for deleted accounts, both pre-migration and post-migration, to ensure a comprehensive reconciliation process.


Arriving at Net Annual Interest: By subtracting the Annual Interest of deleted accounts from the gross Annual Interest, the net Annual Interest for each Circle has been calculated. This meticulous calculation ensures that discrepancies are identified and addressed effectively.


Providing Data to Accounts Committee: The reconciled HO (Head Office) wise Annual Interest data is to be provided to the Accounts Committee by a specified deadline. This enables further scrutiny and resolution of any data inconsistencies from the fiscal year 2013-14 to 2022-23.


The directive emphasizes the importance of this reconciliation exercise and requests Circles to accord it top priority. It highlights the collaborative effort required from all stakeholders to ensure the accuracy and reliability of financial records within the postal banking system.


The summary provided in the communication underscores the magnitude of the task undertaken:


The gross Annual Interest for all schemes amounts to Rs 140716.41 Cr. from 2013-14 to 2022-23.

The Annual Interest of deleted accounts stands at Rs -514.31 Cr. for the same period.

Consequently, the net Annual Interest for the specified period totals Rs 140202.10 Cr.

This article illuminates the meticulous efforts undertaken by the Ministry of Communications, Department of Posts, to reconcile Annual Interest data and uphold the highest standards of financial integrity within the postal banking system. Through collaborative endeavors and rigorous scrutiny, the government reaffirms its commitment to transparent and efficient financial management practices.
