TNGEA seeks more time to process salary bill through IFHRMS tool

The Tamil Nadu Government Employees’ Association has sought from the Treasury department more time for various government departments for updation and correction of e-service records (e-SR) of all their employees and processing the salary bill for May through Integrated Financial and Human Resources Management System (IFHRMS) tool.

In a memorandum submitted to Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and Additional Chief Secretary, association district secretary J. Lakshmi Narayanan said processing of salary bill for May should not be done through IFHRMS tool. Instead of taking up the IFHRMS process for all government departments in the State at one go, it should be carried out in phases for easy tackling of teething problems.

The memorandum said the Treasury department was insisting that salary drawing officers provide a letter stating that digitisation of service records of all employees had been carried out and submit e-SR compliance report by May 15.

It had resulted in the officers giving e-SR compliance reports for employees of their respective offices to the Treasury without getting consent from individual employees on incorporation of all corrections and updation.

Stating that anomaly in e-SR could affect individual employees in the long run, the memorandum said Treasury officials claimed that only the salary drawing officer should be held responsible in case of any anomaly in the e-SR.

TNGEA also complained that IFHRMS website did not open during training programmes conducted for officials by the Treasury department and only oral training was imparted without demonstrating the process to be taken up in IFHRMS website.

Stating that e-SR compliance and processing salary bill through IFHRMS were not practically possible in short duration, the association said the anomalies in entry of data of individual employees could land them in irreversible problems.

It threatened to stage protests if their demands were not met.
