Big relief to state workers – You will be able to transfer the amount from GPF to your bank account directly
- No need to make rounds of offices.
- No one will have to take approval for withdrawal of funds,
- The trial started in Secretariat.
Jaipur, August 31. The State Insurance and Provisional Fund Department has provided great relief to the state employees. Now the amount entered by the employees online can be directly transferred to their bank accounts without waiting for any approval, up to the prescribed limit depending on the length of service.
According to the existing provisions, in case of need of more amount, the above new facility has been provided, keeping the facility of receiving withdrawal as per the prescribed procedure as before.
Shri Ved Prakash Gupta, Joint Secretary, Finance (Insurance), said that the personnel have to apply to their Drawing and Disbursement Officer. They have to state the reason for withdrawing the amount from GPF for their need and attach the desired documents to support it.
The Drawing and Disbursing Officer forwards the said application form to the concerned District Office of the State Insurance and Provisional Fund Department.
The department accepts the withdrawal amount to the extent mentioned in the rules on the said application. It then submits the bill to the Treasury Office. After this, the said amount is deposited in the employee’s bank account by the Treasury Office. The said process takes a lot of time, and the worker does not get the amount at the time of his requirement.
He said that according to the budget announcement of the state government for the year 2021-22, provisions like Deemed and Auto Approval were to be made in the schemes of various departments. Hence simplifying the approvals and payment processes under the work procedures. Also, compulsorily eliminating online tax documents.
In pursuance of this, a new system of GPF has been developed, in which the process of giving reasons for withdrawal, forwarding of application form from Drawing and Disbursing Officer, issuing payment order acceptance (float), billing and submitting treasury directly has been done. Arrangements have been made to transfer the amount to the bank account.
For testing the above newly developed system, a pilot project has been started in the Secretariat Unit from August 26.
