  • G.O.Ms. No. 192, Fin (IT) Department, dated. 07.10.2016. 
  • G.O.Rt. No. 1536, Fin (IT) Department, dated. 04.07.2017.

SAP India Pvt. Ltd. as the implementation Partner.
2 Implementation of CFMS centred on various reforms and re-engineering of processes with the objective of achieving process harmonisation, standardisation and simplification and thereby ensuing effectiveness and enhancing efficiency. Among other things, the process re-engineering covers the process of revenue remittances, their accounting and reporting in a real time environment. The key element of change involves enabling ease of use and thereby permitting the use of all modes of banking across the G2C, G2B, G2G and G2E transactions pertaining to the remittances to the Government. 

3. At present the remittances are mainly taking place in physical mode over the counter at the designated agency bank branches and in electronic mode through internet banking, Credit Cards and Debit Cards with respective banks. While internet banking is limited to departments like Commercial Taxes, APBCL etc., SBIMOPS is engaged as a payment aggregator for electronic mode of remittances in a limited way with departments like Transport and Registration & Stamps; which are having their own functional systems.
 4. During various Government reviews, a strong need was identified for creating a generic utility that can facilitate to meet payment gateway requirements of all the Government departments and facilitate remittances in all the existing modes of banking transactions. In order to fulfil this need, various options were evaluated and keeping in view of the capabilities of integration with CFMS, the Government has shortlisted the solutions from SBI’s Multi- Option Payment System (MOPS) and PayU as suitable to provide the aggregator services to collect the Government receipts.
