What is the BCP of Post Offices?
First of all I want to tell that what is the full form of BCP in postal offices? India Post.
The full form of BPC is Business Continuity Plan.
As we know, there are times during the SAP maintenance process that SAP does not run/does not work.
Sometimes internet is not working in mail office or RMS office.
At this time, work in RMS Office Excel or Notepad.
But they have no option to upload this data to SAP.
now what CEPT BPC (Business Continuity Plan for All Mail Offices in India) has been launched.
As per BCP, mail offices can upload data to SAP IPVS when SAP is started.
Role for BCP – Who Can Upload Excel Files
If the user does not have this role, you can give the role of IPVS Operator in the IM Portal through RDA ID.
The T-code ZIPVS_BCP must be used to perform the BCP process.
