SPARK - Some Tips


Some common doubts about using SPARK and their solutions from my experience. I welcome the comments from experienced hands so as to make this post more helpful to the SPARK users.

Q.        HRA is present in the Part Time staff’s bill. Why?
A.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Present service details – Employment type - Ensure that it is set as Part Time Staff.

Q.        DA Arrear merged in previous month is present in the latest bill also. Why?
A.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Allowances – Check whether more than one entry is saved with same amount.

Q.        ‘No Privilege’ error message is appearing when trying to process SDO’s salary bill. Why?
A.         1.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Present service details – SDO code - It must be a 6 digit code. If not, prefix zeros to make it 6 digits.
            2.         Salary Matters – Est. Bill Types – Select your office. Check whether Bill Sl. No. is set as SD for SDOs. It should set by the establishment user.
            3.         Administration – User admin – Type PEN No. of the employee – check whether authorization code set as S.

Q.        One employee is missing in the present month salary bill. Why?
A.         1.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Present Salary – Ensure the correct Bill type is set for this employee.
2.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Ensure the superannuation date/Retirement date is correct. Establishment user can correct it.
            3.         Service Matters – Retirements – Check whether name of this employee is present there with incorrect retirement date.
            4.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Leave Availed – Ensure there is no wrong entry.
            5.         Salary Matters – Changes in the Month – Stop/Release salary – Ensure name of the employee has not been put in that option.

Q.        Name of the employee is missing in the Increment Sanction window. Why?
A.         1.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Present Salary – Ensure ‘Next Incr date’ is correct.
2.         Try clicking in ‘Stagnation Increment’ in the same window. If the name of the employee is present there, you can sanction the increment as a normal increment.

Q.        Increment cannot be sanctioned. Why?
A.         1.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Present Salary – Ensure ‘Next Incr date’ is correct.

            4.         You can try again with ‘Order No.’ column left as blank.

Q.        Report cannot be generated after sanctioning the increment. Why?

Q.        DA amount in the salary bill is higher than the actual amount for UGC staff. Why?
A.         Administration - Edit employee record – Type PEN No. of the employee – Present service details – Service category – Ensure it is set as ‘UGC AICTE Med Ed Rev’.

Q.        Deduction set for an employee is not affecting in the present month salary bill. Why?

(Eg: If you want to deduct GPAIS from the salary bill of November, date column should be set as 01/11/2010 – 30/11/2010.)
