COMPUTERISATION OF PACS IN THE STATE OF TELANGANA:
The Govt. of Telangana and the Management of TSCAB having a vision to develop the Cooperative Credit Structure in the Telangana State as a vehicle for achieving overall economic prosperity of the rural areas desired to leverage technology. In the process, seamless integration of all the tiers in the Structure was felt essential. Additionally, PACS, being the base of the structure with a membership of about 9.00 Lakhs offering agriculture credit and agriculture inputs, procurement, warehousing, processing, marketing and various other products and services, have to be first brought on to a computerized platform to fully leverage their potential. The Computerization of PACS was also meant to ensure bringing in speed and accuracy in the conduct of business, preparation of final accounts and audit. In the absence of Computerization, generation of prescribed Audit Statements is often delayed, depriving the stakeholders, the information on financial health of these important institutions and thereby resulting in flawed policy formulation.
Thus, with a noble intention to develop PACS as vibrant, proactive and member centric service providing institutions meeting every financial and service requirement of their members in particular and rural community at large, while being transparent and accountable in their operations and management, adhering to the principles of good governance and ensuring seamless integration of all stakeholders. Such transformed institutions will be able to truly realize the goals of becoming Multi Service Organizations.
Accordingly. Govt. of Telangana, with an intention to initiate the process of computerization of 906 PACS including 108 Ceded to Commercial Banks, apart from 798 PACS of DCCBs has issued G.O. appointing M/s Intellect Informatics Pvt. Ltd., as the Service Provider for taking up the task of computerization of PACS and similarly has entrusted TSCAB with role of a guide, overseeing the problems between service provider and the DCCBs/PACS fixing the deadline as December’2017.
The UNITE ERP implemented by the Service Provider M/s Intellect Informatics Pvt. Ltd., in the PACS of Telangana State are also scalable and provides for seamless integration with any CBS at higher tiers of refinance, interoperable with any external solutions, and accessible from various form factors (PoS, Micro-ATMs, Mobile devices etc.,). Thus, the solution implemented in Telangana PACS has inbuilt flexibility to integrate and scale up with any future systems that may come up.
With the proactive role taken up by the TSCAB and other Stake Holders, the project is likely to be completed by the end of February’2018. As on 01.02.2018 there are about 775 PACS out of 798 PACS where Day Book can be generated on daily basis. The System Audit was completed in as many as 211 PACS. Further, there are about 200 PACS which are in Go-Live Stage.
