I  am excited to share the news that the Department has signed the contract today with M/s Infosys Ltd for deploying CBS and ATMs in Post Offices.

Infosys , as System Integrator will deploy the CBS ( Finacle) and Insurance softwares. They have tied up with M/s NCR for installing ATMs and with Yelamanchilli (YCS) for the ATM switch and M/s IBM for central hardware. Data migration from legacy accounts is also part of their scope of work. The period of contract is 7 years which includes the Operations and Maintenance activities for this period. Infosys will also station one Project Manager in each of the circles to deliver the project in time. They will also run a helpdesk to resolve issues of our staff from post offices. The project will cover around 25,000 departmental offices in a period of 24 months. The CBS Rural ICT application will also be rolled out in 1.3 lakh branch offices. The identified 120 pilot offices will start CBS in 6 months and Pilot roll out will be completed in 9 months from T. T will be fixed shortly.
