Subject: – Regarding to stop IPPB implement in Single Hand S.O.
Sir, Indian Postal Payment Bank is going to launch in Rajasthan and other Circles. As par IPPB guidelines and training materials, Post offices including Single Hand S.O. will have to do various works of IPPB like Deposits, Withdrawals Account Opening etc. On holder’s request Post office accounts will also be attached to the IPPB Accounts.
Employees of Rajasthan Circle highly oppose this policy because single hand SPMs are already highly busy and exploited. They are operating various typical departmental softwares and playing multiple roles at the same time like operation and Supervisor.
It is very sad to say that Department never thought that how many types of work can be done by one person at one time. A single hand SPM is playing multiple roles in same time like Office Manager, Counter Clerk, Supervisor, Deliver Assistant, Branch Offices Observer , Cashier, Cash overseer, Inquiry Counter, etc. and Department trying to impose IPPB work. How a Single SPM Manage POSB and IPPB operations and balances in same time?
There is one other major irregularity which we want to come in your notice that. IPPB will work under Reserve Bank of India guidelines. RBI has time to time issued many guidelines to related Banks regarding necessity of maker checker concept in financial entries. According to RBI Master Direction DNBS.PPD.No.04/66.15.001/2016-17 June 08, 2017 (Master Direction – Information Technology Framework for the NBFC Sector) Para 3.1 (f) “Maker-checker is one of the important principles of authorization in the information systems of financial entities. For each transaction, there must be at least two individuals necessary for its completion as this will reduce the risk of error and will ensure reliability of information.” It will be full violation of RBI instructions if IPPB implemented in Single Hand SOs.
IPPB will closed on second and fourth Saturday of month still DOP not announced same for Postal Employees. When Postal employees are doing Banking works along with Postal works, why two Saturday off not being provide to postal employees. Why double standards are being adopted. We don’t want any incentive we want that these works are included in our workload. And provide same facility like IPPB because we are doing major works IPPB in banking environment
Sir Kindly take necessary action in this regards
