Significant spike seen in Postal Savings bank accounts in State


5.5 lakh postal savings accounts were opened in the State in the last one month. 
As many as 19 lakh accounts opened during this financial year in Tamil Nadu’
Of late, the Department of Posts is witnessing a significant increase in the number of postal savings bank accounts opened in the State.



Radhika Chakravarthy, Postmaster General, Chennai City Region, said that of the total 19 lakh postal savings bank accounts opened during this financial year in Tamil Nadu, 5.5 lakh accounts were opened in the last one month.

“We are conducting melas to create awareness on postal savings bank accounts. There are distinct advantages in postal savings accounts. Here, people can have a minimum balance of Rs. 50, while it is Rs. 5,000 or even more in banks,” she told reporters during the sidelines of the inauguration of a Post Office Passport Seva Kendra on Saturday.

Another advantage was that customers get ATM cards that can be used in post office ATMs or any bank ATM to withdraw cash.

“We have no restrictions on the number of transactions nor do we charge them. These cards are interoperable,” she said.

There are a total of 97 postal ATMs — at all Head Post Offices — in the State.

Core Banking Solutions

Out of the 2,600 department post offices in the State, 2,580 were on the Core Banking Solutions (CBS) platform, she said.

CBS enables postal savings account holders of a CBS networked post office to carry out all transactions at any other post office on the CBS network across the country. Ms. Chakravarthy added that as many as 14 lakh “Selvamagal Semippu Thittam” accounts, a scheme meant for girl children, have been opened so far in the State.

Ms. Chakravarthy added that use of swiping machines at post offices to enable any kind of transaction was under trial at the Head Post Office, Anna Road in Chennai and this would be put in place shortly. The department was also examining the possibility of bringing in online payment facility and mobile transactions for customers, she said.

MACP snatching away ACP better benefit by retrospective implementation struck by Madras High Court!
WP No.33946, 34602 & 27798 of 2014.
WP No.33946 of 2014.
The MACP was implemented retrospectively w.e.f 1.9.2008 vide GO dated 19.05.2009. We know under ACP system officials were allowed upgradation on par with hierarchical promotion. MACP granted only to next Grade Pay hierarchy. Many officials became eligible for ACP during the period between 1.9.2008 and 19.05.2009 were denied better upgradation under ACP but given only lower upgradation in GP hierarchy under MACP. Many affected officials in Defence services approached CAT Madras and won their prayer. Admn appealed in High Court Madras. Recently High Court has dismissed the writ appeals and held that any better upgradation under ACP cannot be denied by ordering MACP retrospectively. Thus officials eligible for upgradation on par with hierarchical layer during 1.9.2008 and 19.05.2009 will get upgradation under earlier ACP scheme.

This judgment opens the doors for any Postal employees who were under TBOP/BCR scheme and were denied BCR during 1.9.2008 and 18.09.2009 (the date of issue of MACP orders by DOP). Some Group D promotees who were promoted to Postman, and later on to PA/SA cadre were given TBOP earlier but was denied any more upgradation under MACP. Now, if such officials were found to be eligible for BCR by virtue of their 26 years of service in PA/SA cadre during 1.9.2008 and 18.09.2009 are free to claim their BCR under the weight of this judgment. - KR GS AIPRPA

Small savings, Big opportunity




In less than a week, on April 1, rates on small savings schemes offered by the post office are due for their next quarterly revision. There is a good possibility that this revision, to be effective from April to June 2017, will see rates being cut. But there is a window of opportunity until March 31 to lock into the prevalent high rates. This, you can do by investing until Friday in those small savings schemes in which the rate at the time of investment stays till maturity.

Quarterly rate resets

Effective April 2016, the government changed the rate reset frequency on small savings schemes to every quarter. Earlier, rates were being reset on an annual basis. This change in the reset mechanism was meant to align rates on small savings schemes more dynamically with market-linked rates — that is, in sync with rate changes on government securities (G-Secs). This was to narrow their wide rate gap over bank deposits which were ostensibly denting the latter’s inflows.

The first quarterly reset saw rates on small savings schemes being cut sharply (0.4 to 1.3 percentage points) in the April-June 2016 quarter. With G-Sec yields going rapidly downhill over much of the last year, the government should have slashed the rates on these schemes further. But it did not.
It stayed put in the July to September quarter, cut rates by just 0.1 percentage points in the October-December 2016 quarter, and then again held them unchanged in the January to March 2017 quarter. (see table).
In effect, small savings schemes still offer much better returns than comparable options such as bank deposits. This has largely benefited investors in such schemes.

Rate cut possibility
But it has also upped the chances of the government going for sharp cuts now. The case for a rate cut is aided by a few factors. One, key state elections which may have held the government’s hand so far are now over, and with largely favourable results for the ruling party. This could give the government adequate political leeway to cut rates. Sure, banks, flush with funds after the demonetisation exercise, may not be nudging the government now to cut rates on small savings schemes. But the government would still want to cut these rates and reduce its borrowing cost — proceeds from small savings schemes form part of the government’s debt.

Next, despite G-Sec rates staging a comeback from December 2016, they are still far below the rates in April 2016 when small savings rates were last cut sharply. From about 7.4 per cent last April, the 10-year G-Sec yield crashed to about 6.2 per cent in December and has since then rallied to about 6.9 per cent . Still, G-Sec yields are about 0.5 percentage points lower than in April, giving the government room and reason to cut rates on small savings schemes. Even if it does not cut rates (in a best case scenario), the possibility of the government increasing rates on small savings schemes seems remote, given their wide disparity with market rates.

Ergo: it makes sense to lock into the prevalent high rates being offered by the post office. These investments are as safe as they get, being guaranteed by the government. Also, the rates are superior to those being offered by comparably safe options such as bank fixed deposits (about 6.5 per cent to 7 cent currently). But you have to pick and choose from among the various small savings schemes.

Good choices
Choose from fixed rate schemes offered by the post office. In these schemes, new rates announced each quarter apply only to investments made in the quarter and hold till maturity. So, if you invest in these before March end, the rate at which you lock into will hold for the entire tenure. This category comprises the National Savings Certificate (NSC), Senior Citizen Savings Scheme (SCSS), Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP), Post office monthly income scheme (POMIS) and post office time and recurring deposits.
Despite the rate cuts since April, most of these schemes, except one to three-year time deposits, remain attractive, offering higher rates than comparable options. The best choices are the NSC (8 per cent) — a five-year cumulative scheme, SCSS (8.5 per cent) – a five-year quarterly payout scheme open to senior citizens, and five-year time deposits (7.8 per cent) — an annual payout scheme open to all investors. These investments also enjoy tax breaks under Section 80C; this pegs up their effective returns.

On the other hand, the Public Provident Fund (PPF) and Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme are variable rate products in which the rates keep changing throughout the tenure. New rates announced each quarter will apply to the entire accumulated corpus on these products. So, it makes little sense rushing to put money in these products.
