Sub: Rolling out of New GRIPS into IFMS Portal
Government Receipt Portal System [GRIPS] was launched in the year 2012 vide Notification 8298-F(Y) dated 03-10-2012 for on-line collection of Tax and Non-Tax Revenues and Deposits on behalf of the State Government. The State Government has decided to incorporate the same in the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS) and to integrate with the e-Kuber Portal of the RBI in order to dispense with the manual intervention in various stages of data transmission, settlement of funds and accounting of e-Receipts, to facilitate a single source of reporting of both receipts and payments on Government account and for data security.
Accordingly, the GRIPS is being integrated with IFMS and is going to be rolled out as a Module of IFMS on and from 31st October, 16. In order to operationalize the process smoothly, following measures may kindly be taken at your end:
i. Disabling the link to existing GRIPS Portal on 27th October, 16 after 18.00hrs (IST) so that no transaction can be initiated through that link after that cut off time.
ii. Providing a link to the new GRIPS (https://wbifms.gov.in/GRIPS) in the website of the websites of administrative Departments in place of existing link of NIC GRIPS (https://wbfin.wb.nic.in/GRIPS) on 31st 0ctober, 2016 at 8.00hrs( 1ST).
iii. Providing a flash Message on existing Portal informing the implementation of new GRIPS and complete shut down of the Portal from 28th October’16 to 30th October’16 in the following format-
“The GRIPS Portal will remain shut down for public transactions from 6pm of 27/10/2016 to 8 AM of 31/10/2016 and will resume for carrying out transactions thereafter.”
“All challans generated through ‘offline mode’ prior to 27th October’16 shall positively be deposited onto the bank within 27th October’16 (6.00pm) or else such challans will be invalid after expiry of such date.”
Your Cooperation is earnestly solicited to help rolling out of the new GRIPS on IFMS successfully.
