0 comments
While running R-NET communication from client machine it is asking for Point of Sale folder path. However while trying to browse for the same the network does not show the SERVER. I tried to run the R-NET communication from the server itself but the following error is being displayed :MSJET OLEBDB4.0 is missing or not registered on the local machine. When I tried to look for the same in the SYSTEM 32 folder, it is not available. The O/S is WINDOWS SERVER 2003 (64 bit). 

Solution

  1. Error "The Microsoft.Jet.OLDEB.4.0 Provider is not registered on the Local Machine" occurs when R Net Communication is installed on Server (i.e. Server OS) 
  2. From following link please download the Microsoft Jet OLEDB Engine for your Operating System http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=13255 and install where R Net communication is installed. 

Features of Rural ICT Handheld Device Supplied to Branch Post Offices

0 comments
As a pilot phase Department of Post has started using solar powered, biometric hand-held devices in rural post office with connectivity along with the application software in selected circles viz. Bihar, UP and Rajasthan. This move was the outcome of Rural ICT project declared by the Government of India.

Following re the important features or benefits of Hand-held device supplied to Branch Post Offices.

1. Electronic transactions- Booking and delivery of Speed Post, registered mail, money orders, sale of stamps and postal stationery will be done through these devices and paper receipt shall be generated

2. Instantaneously thereby eliminating chances of overcharging and other problems associated with manual transactions. Savings Bank deposits & withdrawals, PLI/RPLI premium deposits and loan/claim payments will also be done electronically on these devices.

3. Immediate uploading of transaction data and financial reconciliation- Using mobile connectivity, data pertaining to all transactions done on the hand-held devices shall be uploaded onto the central server. E-Money order will reach the destination post office instantaneously unlike present day where the money order is digitized at the nearest computerized Post Office and leads to delay in delivery. All financial transactions shall also be reconciled immediately without any manual intervention and Cash on Delivery amount collected in the village shall be immediately credited to the account of e-Commerce Company. Similarly the artisans would be able to fulfill e-commerce orders and receive immediate payment for their sold products online. This will have a positive impact on the overall economy of the villages.

4. Automatic track and trace- Speed Post and Registered letters/parcels and money remittances will be trackable at the Branch Post Office level and booking/delivery information will also be uploaded to central server immediately.

5. Fraud and leakage elimination- As Savings Bank and Postal Life Insurance transactions will be done on a real-time basis and through immediate generation of receipt and voice message, chances of fraud would be eliminated. Biometric authentication of MNREGS and social security beneficiaries at the time of pay-out would also reduce leakage in the schemes

6. Post Offices as Common Service Centres- Branch Post Offices shall be able to work as Common Service Centres and offer services such as Railway Reservation, online bill payment for electricity and water utilities, mobile and DTH recharge, insurance policy premium payments & transactions for partner banks/insurance companies/mutual funds etc

India Post releases booklet

Member (Planning), Postal Services Board, Shekhar Kumar Sinha, going through the booklet 'Aikya' brought out by India Post along with the First Day Cover and Commemoration Stamp on the International Fleet Review-2016 in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.—Photo: C.V. Subrahmanyam

India Post that released a First Day Cover and stamp to commemorate the International Fleet Review 2016 has gone one step ahead and published a booklet on the relevance of the event.

Releasing the booklet – Aikya – at a function here on Sunday, Member (Planning) Postal Services Board Shekhar Kumar Sinha appreciated the efforts taken by Visakhapatnam Post Master General Sharda Sampath and her team on putting together the information and photos on previous Fleet Reviews conducted in India and also the first edition of the International Fleet Review conducted in 2001.

The Philatelic Department had taken up activities beyond simple publication and sale of commemorative stamps and first day covers, he said.

The Philatelic Bureau was organising an annual letter writing contest for students in October. The India Post was asking the principals of schools to organise regular letter writing competitions to help in character building of students.

The wait for letter to be delivered once it is posted helps inculcate patience, secondly once the letter is in the post box one has to have faith in the Postal Department this inculcates a value of trust among the students, Mr Sinha explained.

He called upon the philatelists and philately organisations to actively encourage the next generation to take to the king of hobbies – Philately – and disseminate their passion to the next generation, he said.

Post Master General Visakhapatnam Region Sharda Sampath explained the efforts that went into compiling the book and acknowledged the cooperation of Command Education and Welfare Officer Commodore Amit Vikram, Captain Dorai Babu and Commander Murthy in getting the official information on past events.

While the underlying theme of IFR was unified through oceans marking unity among the navies, the organising of the event played a major role in bringing together different government departments, Post Master General Vijayawada Region M. Sampath remarked.


The booklet not only carries information on the event but also has a crossed stamped First Day Cover, it is available at the Philatelic Bureau outlets in the city.

To upload service tax and sales tax through upload file, the file format will be modified and three new columns will be added- 
1. First Year Tax 
2. Renewal Year Tax 
3. Tax type 
The validations for these fields are covered in Section 8. 

11 Excess Premium Validations 

11.1 Existing Business Process 
According to the current business process if the user uploads extra premium through the csv upload, the required premium amount is adjusted towards the premium for the months selected and the rest is kept in policy suspense. 
This suspense amount will be used when the user tries to pay future premiums through collection screen. If no further premium payment is made then this amount is shown as excess premium when the policy is settled towards claims. 

11.2 Problem Statement 
Many times users are uploading excess amount through csv upload. There are various reasons for this error: 
1. User mistake while uploading files when incorrect amount is entered 
2. Extra premium uploaded when policy frequency is changed 

11.3 Proposed solution 
To stop uploading excess premium from the csv, new validations will be built in the batch. If any excess premium is entered in the file which is more than the frequency premium, then the record will be rejected in the batch. 
An examples is mentioned below to upload the file in the correct manner: 
1. Policy no - R-TN-TC-EA-288371 
2. Paid to Date – 30-JUN-2006 
3. Policy Issue date – 1-APR-2006 
4. Frequency 
§ Monthly - 01-OCT-04 to 30-JUN-15 
§ Quarterly from 01-JUL-15 
5. Monthly Premium - 164 
6. Frequency Premium - 491 

The above mentioned policy has two frequencies since it was migrated as monthly policy and then it got converted to quarterly. 
To upload the premium for this policy correctly, user should create two records in the file. One record will have premium record for only monthly premium payments. The second record should have only quarterly premium payment record. 
Ø For the record with only monthly premium. ‘To Date’ and ‘From Date’ should be selected accordingly. The total premium (Total Receipt) should be equal to the number of months multiplied by the monthly premium amount. 
Ø To upload the quarterly premium, user should create another record and the select the ‘To Date’ and ‘From Date’ based on the quarterly frequency. The premium amount should be equal to the number of quarters multiplied by the quarterly premium. 

In the example --- 
Monthly premium is Rs.164 and no. of months to be updated are 108. So in total receipt column 164*108 = Rs.17712 will be updated. 
Similarly when quarterly premium has to be updated, the quarterly premium amount which is Rs.491 is multiplied by the number of quarters. Hence it is 491*1 = Rs.491. 
Ø This similar method will be used when premium frequency is half-yearly or annual. 

12 Transferring from one special Group to another special group 

Ø In case the special group of the policy is changed, the same can be updated in the system by the pay Deduction file. 
Ø The premium collection should be done on the new special group and the file should be uploaded using this group number only. 
Ø The new PAO code can be entered in the pay deduction CSV file and the system will change the PAO code of the policy.
