NEW DELHI: To reduce time consumption and false transaction, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is setting an Integrated Payment System (IPS) for the management and disbursement of various payments. The board said that the newly developed system will digitally transform the previously manual and time-consuming system into an efficient system that is devoid of human error.

The CBSE said that earlier the payment process would take nearly 6 months to complete. This was because the process would pass through several manual checks by the officials. For exam duties, after such checks, the CBSE would then distribute the money to the centre superintendents, who would further disburse the payments to the various functionaries.

However, the introduction of a normative payment system through the Integrated Payment System (IPS) will allow for automatic calculations which eradicate the need for human intervention. After the submission of inspection reports in case of inspection duties and duty compilation certificate in case of exam duties or other such supporting documents, IPS allows for direct bank transfers of honorarium and TA/DA to the intended payee the board informed.

This has been achieved through software integration with the bank payment gateway. The system relies on self-declaration/certification and has considerably improved the ease of undertaking such transactions.

The IPS also allows for automatic validation checks which not only reduce the time taken to complete the payment process but also reduces the possibility of committing false transactions and non-genuine disbursements.

“Being a national education body, the responsibility of conducting public examinations for schools affiliated with CBSE and various other competitive examinations such as CTET, recruitment tests etc. lies with the Board. Close to 10 lakh faculty members including Principals and teachers offer their services for the smooth conduct of such examinations,” CBSE said in an official notice.

Similarly, around 10,000 principals/ educational administrators are also appointed for the inspections of schools for affiliation/ upgradation. All functionaries involved in examination or affiliation related duties would be paid an honorarium and TA/DA for their services after they manually raised a bill to the concerned authority.

“The features of the newly developed IPS are in consonance with the principles of Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) and Ease of Living (EoL), and has been implemented successfully for Affiliation Inspection Payment, Board and CTET Examination duty payments,” the notice said.
