The Department of Food & Public Distribution and Reserve Bank of India have implemented the electronic payment system of the computerized accounting in partnership with the National Informatics Centre. The STQC Directorate of IT department has certified the electronic payment system as fully secured.

This system will serve as the middleware between the COMPACT (the accounting application) for processing of bill and Core Banking Solutions (CBS) for the bank as well as the RBI. This secured mode of making the payments online, would be time saving and eliminate physical cheques and their manual processing.
