Sub: Incorporation of Deduct Recoveries heads of account in GRIPS

In terms of FD Memo No. 4100-F(Y) dated 28.09.2022, GRIPS 2.0 was launched with additional features like collection into deposit accounts maintained at various treasuries/ PAOs and collection into bank accounts of various ULBs/ Government companies/ Undertakings/ Corporations and other government parastatals besides collection of tax and non-tax receipts of the state government.

Payments in the nature of deduct recoveries/ recoveries of overpayment were out of the ambit of GRIPS. Now after careful consideration, as well as with a view to move towards paperless treasury and for greater conveniences of the depositors, the Governor is pleased to include the facility for receipts under deduct recovery heads of account having detailed head ’70-Deduct Recoveries’ for recovery of overpayments pertaining to all departments under a new service “Recovery of overpayment” in GRIPS.

Such payments can be done using online and offline modes of payment through all participating banks and payment gateway (SBIepay).
