As a way of preventing fraudulent deductions from teachers’ salaries by either teacher noninsurance companies, credit unions, as well as colleagues of the teachers themselves, the Controller and Accountant General’s Department in the year 2011, organized a sensitization program on third party deductions called Third Party Reference System (TPRS).
The programme brought together all the teacher unions including
Innovative Teachers, GNAT, CCT, NAGRAT, Insurance Companies, Hire Purchase Companies, Non-Bank Institutions, Credit Unions Other labour Unions and Welfare associations took part in the programme.
In a TPRS upgrade training with CADG earlier this month, measures were taken tp protect all Government of Ghana Employees in relation to accessibility of employment details by third-party institutions via unlawful ways.
A statement cited by Listengh indicates that very soon CAGD is going to change the interface of the Epayslip system allow more flexibility.
However, tthe new interface, two mandatory requirements for the generation of mandate form are as follows:
- PASSPORT PICTURE
This should be a picture with a plain background preferably red or white. You can contact your validator to check Your picture status for you.
2. ACTIVE CONTACT PHONE NUMBER
With this what it means is that you have to make sure the contact number you used to register the Epayslip is still being used. If you have stopped using that contact then then you will have to contact your validator or IPPD coordinator for your phone number to be updated with your new contact. Better still, you can login to your Epayslip to change it yourself.
With these mechanisms in place, no one can generate your mandate without your consent. Therefore, the issue of some institutions blocking your affordability without your knowledge will be a thing of the past.
NOTE: It is very advisable for readers to note that those requirements outlined above have no effect on Your salary whether you update it or not you will get your salary but What you cannot access is any loan or welfare product that Will require deduction from controller.
