In an endeavour to provide salary-related information to the government employees in Jammu and Kashmir, Girish Chandra Murmu, Lieutenant Governor of the Union Territory of J&K, launched ‘MeraVetan’, a salary tracker mobile app on June 3.
Developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), J&K, the version 1 of this mobile app will enable employees to easily access their salary and other details anytime, anywhere.
Governor Murmu is also hopeful of upgrading the application in the near future to help in income tax calculations and generation of Form-16.
He also mentioned that this application will be beneficial for those employees posted in remote and rural areas, with no access to the drawing and disbursing officers (DDOs).
A similar application may be developed for pre- and post-matric scholarship and integrated social security schemes run by the social welfare department so that the beneficiaries are able to track the scholarship and pension disbursement details.
The app is available on the main page of JKPaySys, while the instructions for installation and use of the app are available on the JKPaySys portal. It is only available on the Android platform.
After installing the app, the employees need to enter their centralised personnel information system (CPIS) ID, date of birth, GPF and NPS subscription number. In case they do not have this information, they can obtain it from their DDO.
The mobile app also provides information on pay scale, GPF/NPS subscription, allowances, deductions, GPF/NPS statement, income-tax statement, SLI statement and so on. The details of the employees’ salaries will be updated every month following payment from the treasury.
