It is requested that immediate action is taken for procurement of the prescribed hardware and software and to complete all the activities required for operationalisation of the e-Payment system in the PAOs of your Ministries/ Departments within the stipulated timeline mentioned above. Ministries/ Departments listed in Annexure IT which are not operating on COMPACT, are also requested to take immediate steps for development of interface between their existing accounting software and GePG/COMPACT or switch over to COMPACT for enabling e-payment through GePG.

5.  The operational procedure for the e-payment system and the specifications and other details regarding the necessary hardware, software and digital signature etc. have already been circulated vide O.M. under reference. It is further advised that the necessary exercise for obtaining required funds may be initiated immediately. A copy of this OM is also being endorsed to the IFD of your Ministry requesting for their co-operation in this regard.

6.  It may also be ensured that whenever a new PAO is established in the Ministry/Department, it is enabled for e-payment at the time of its operationalization itself.

This may be accorded top priority since this initiative is being eviewed by Secretary (E) on a regular basis.
