AGENT PORTAL IN FINACLE - FAQ
(i) What is the procedure to get eBanking User Id and Password?
Solution: eBanking user ID and Password will be forwarded on the day of migration by DMCC team only for agents (MPKBY/SAS/PRSS) who were linked with SB account in Sanchay Post. For agents created in Finacle after migration , DSA ID along with SOL ID and other mandatory details should be sent to fsihelpdesk for generation of eBanking User Id and Password.
(ii) eBanking user Id and Password created in wrong name.
Solution: eBanking user id and password will be generated in the name of the Primary (First) account holder of the linked SB commission credit account. Suppose an MPKBY agent Kala has linked Joint Account as commission credit account with Primary(First) account holder name as Ravi, eBanking user id will be generated in the name of RAVI only and not in the name of Kala. This will not have any effect anywhere. If the agent wants eBanking User Id generated in their own name, either single account should be given as commission credit account or their name should be primary account holder in Joint accounts. This is added as a discrepancy in DBA Plus
(iii) Unable to Login. Please try again or contact bank for more details – Agent Portal
Solution: Either the user name / password is incorrect or Agent portal not functioning. Agent portal will not function when the Finacle Core is down
(iv) What to do when Agents User ID and password is locked due to wrong entry of
password for more than ten times.
Solution: Password will get locked if entered wrongly for 10 times. Agent should contact their
respective Post office and in turn PO will raise a request to CPC who in turn will raise ticket with FSI helpdesk with details of DSA ID and SOL ID to get the password reset for the agents. Agents should not contact Help Desk directly.
(v) Whether SAS agents can use Agent Portal?
Solution: SAS agents will also be provided with eBanking User Id and Password. SAS agents can logon to portal but no accounts will be linked to these agents. This DSA ID to be noted on the account opening form for getting the commission credited to their SB accounts.
(vi) Agent Portal Host Error
Solution: Agent Portal is down or Finacle server is down. Try after sometime.
(vii) Agent Portal could not be logged on in newly migrated offices
Solution: Ensure whether the port access for accessing the agent portal is given by SIFY.
(viii) eBanking User Id and Password is generated more than once for many agents
Solution: eBanking user Id and Password will be generated for all the agents migrated to finacle including license expired agents / duplicate agent id. In order to avoid this, ensure that the license expired agents and duplicate IDs are not linked with SB account number.
(ix) No RD accounts are linked while logging in to portal
During Go Live Migration - Transformation Layer, Agent Reconciliation excel sheet is shared with the Postmaster to ensure 100% migration of agents. Finacle DSA ID, Agent Type and number of accounts columns are available. Postmaster to check the correct DSA ID from Reconciliation Excel and logon by using that DSA ID before raising the issue.Suppose if a single agent is having both SAS and MPKBY. Two ebanking user Id and Password will
be generated. Use the appropriate eBanking User Id. Suppose three more eBanking user Ids are generated for the same agent due to duplicate IDs in Sanchay post, logon with appropriate eBanking user ID.
(x) Some RD accounts are not linked / not visible in the Agent Portal
Solution: Discontinued / Closed accounts will not be visible in Agent Portal. Ensure that RD account was linked to correct Agent in Sanchay Post. Inquire the RD account using CRDACM menu to check the DSA ID linked. If any account is not linked to any agent, user should link that account with correct
DSA ID by using CRDACM menu.
(xi) How to prepare Bulk list with default fee
a. Default fee is automatically fetched from Finacle Core and displayed in separate column
b. Suppose in one account there are 4 months default, only one month default will be shown

(xiii) Whether the Default fee and Rebate to be added in the cheque?
Solution: In the DOP/Non Dop cheque, Default fee should be added and Rebate to be deducted along with monthly instalments. Suppose in an account with Rs.200/- denomination, there is a default of one month. If the customer wants to get rebate, 6 months instalments has to be paid. Already one default is there. Hence the customer should pay 7 months instalments to get rebate.
200 x 7 = Rs.1400, plus Default fee – Rs.2/- less rebate – Rs.12
Total cheque amount – 1400 + 2 – 12 = Rs.1390/-
(xiv) In case of cheques, can the default fee accepted as cash and monthly instalments as cheque?
Solution: No. Partial cash and partial cheque not allowed. While posting system will check
for the total amount (Monthly instalment plus Default less Rebate) for that account. If there is
a difference, an error “CHEQUE NOT CLEARED” will be thrown.
(xv) Process of posting Non DOP cheques

(b) If the cheques are not handled through outward clearing, the following process should be (PLEASE NOTE: This process should not be followed if OUTWARD CLEARING PROCESS is followed)

(xvii) Agent cannot generate bulk list for more than Rs.10,000/- if mode is payment is Cash

Click on 2nd INDIAN BANK as IND BANK, enter the cheque number – 002345 , account no for RD instalment – Indian Bank Savings Bank account number of this cheque eg 643567 (This field will not be validated). Click on Save.
