January salary is expected to be paid on the 24th by the Controller, this means the validation window will be opened between  the 18th of January 2023 and to 20th of January 2023.

Do not expect any Alert on the 24th because this is the date Controller pays or gives Green light for payment, within three (3) days, if things work fast or Five working days,   this becomes available to hit the individual workers account at  GCB  or ADB. This can be  for example validation on the 20th means salary will be paid 23rd and by the 25th -28th of January 2023 salaries will be paid.
