In the year 2013, the scope of the PFMS/ CPSMS was enlarged to cover the direct payments to the beneficiaries under both the Plan and non-Plan Schemes. In the later part of 2014, it was envisaged that the digitization of the accounts needs to be done through the PFMS and the additional functionalities will be built into the PFMS at different stages. Starting with the Pay & Accounts Offices payments, the O/o CGA made further value addition by making a proposal to bring in additional financial activities of the Government of India in the scope of the project.

The main aim of PFMS/ CPSMS is to facilitate a sound Public Financial Management System for the Government of India by setting up an efficient fund flow system and a superb payment cum accounting network. The PFMS provides its stakeholders with a reliable and meaningful management information system as well as a proper decision support system, as a part of the Digital India initiative of the Indian government.

The application has been envisaged to provide to all the Plan and Non-Plan payments of the Government of India, all the tax and non-Tax receipts as well, and other functions like the comprehensive HRMIS and self-contained pension and the GPF modules. Keeping the future in mind, all the existing standalone systems that are catering to the several functions in the Government of India currently will be subsumed in the PFMS/ CPSMS.

The PFMS is in complete integration with the Core banking system in the Country and this is its biggest strength of all. The PFMS has the capability to push the online payments to the majority of the beneficiaries/vendor. As of now, the PFMS interface is having the interface apart from the Core Banking System (CBS) of all the Public Sector Banks, Regional Rural Banks, the major private sector banks, the Reserve Bank of India, India post and the Cooperative Banks.

There are several benefits of the PFMS Scholarships. One of the major benefits of the public financial management system scholarship for 2020 is the distribution of this scholarship to all of those students who are expectedly going to give an outstanding performance in their higher education in some of the most renowned colleges and universities all over the country. This opportunity is going to be beneficial to especially those students who are poor and belong to an economically backward society. These students will then carry their education forward without any financial worries.
