1 Hardcopies of claims are being received without softcopy in CD.
2 A number of claims (Hardcopies) are being received alongwith scanned image/pdf of LPC instead of M S Access utility.
3 Few Head of the offices are forwarding M S Access utility alongwith only scanned image/pdf of LPC only. No hardcopies are being received.
4 Hardcopy-softcopy record mismatch- The major problem is being faced in uploading of data into system due to the reasons that softcopy contains more number of records than for which hardcopies received in that particular batch and it is difficult to reconcile records before uploading into the system for processing.
5 CD containing soft-copy are not being received in CD mailer resulting into number of CDs received as broken in this office.
6 M S Access utility containing only single record in each utility and each CD are being received instead of all the records in one/two utility. For example:- One Head of the office has sent 21 claims along with 21 CDs i.e. one CD against each claim.
7 Claims are being received without obtaining HOO code.
8 Last pay and retiring pay scale are not being entered into LPC-Cum-Datasheet corresponding to pay commission when individual retired in Pay Detail portion.
