Respected Madam/ Sir,
As you are aware the pilot (I) rollout of CSI has been successfully completed in Mysuru Division, Karnataka. As part of the CSI project,each employee has been provided with an employee code which will be used as a login ID.
The counter-staff now has multiple log-in credentials viz; CSI log-in, Finacle log-in and McCamish log-in. This system is not only cumbersome, time taking but also not very secure from the point of view of authentication of financial transactions.
In view of the above points it has been decided that there shall be only one log-in credentials per user for all applications. The CSI shall provide the Single Sign On (SSO) solution for this functionality. . The SSO solution shall ensure that each employee having the CSI log-in credentials should be able to access Finacle and McCamish. The SSO shall have verification and authentication system to make it a secure system. This would help the Employees as they will not have to handle multiple log-in credentials. It will be beneficial for the Department and the public as every financial transaction shall be authenticated. The chances of frauds and embezzlements using others’ log-in credentials will reduce drastically thus making the system more reliable and secure.
It is required that each employee’s ID provided by CBS and PLI is mapped with the one provided by the CSI. This activity is essential to avoid any operational difficulties once the SSO is rolled out. In order to do this mapping the M/s TCS has provided a portal along with the log-in credentials for each division. The CBS User-id and PLI user-id along with the mobile number and Aadhar number are to be filled in for all employees on this portal. Some data is pre-populated including mobile number and adhaar number for officials who have already shared these details.
In case of addition of new employees whose names might not be reflecting on the portal, it is requested to follow the procedure of getting their AD user created for them. Once their AD users are created the portal shall automatically be updated and their names shall reflect on it.
It is requested that due-diligence may be followed in this activity as SSO shall become extremely important for smooth functioning of the Post Offices. The link of the portal is given below:
