Difference in MIS and SCSS interest in First installment after migration to Finacle

When any office is migrated to CBS, while generating interest for the first quarter after migration, one day’s interest is deducted by Finacle from the due quarterly interest. This interest belong to the day of account opening given by Sanchay Post. This one day interest will be paid on the day of closure by Finacle. This is happening due to fundamental difference between Sanchay Post and Finacle. Sanchay Post  is paying interest for the day of account opening and not for the day of closure e.g account opened on 3.4.2013 will be matured in Sanchay Post on 3.4.2018. Sanchay Post will pay interest from 3.4.2013 to 2.4.2018 and payment will be made on 3.4.2018.In Finacle, with same example, interest will be calculated and paid from 4.4.2013 to 3.4.2018 and payment will be made on 3.4.2018. Total interest in both the cases will be same. When account is opened in Sanchay Post and closed in Finacle, one day’s interest will be paid extra. Therefore, this extra interest is being deducted in Finacle during first payment after migration

They have been ordered to shoot the older students, but not the children. We are giving them direct instructions to not harm minors.
