Hello Awasum Thanks for your response, I have read the content in the links and as specified in them this project uses the Google Java Style, however I’ve seen that some of those conventions like 2 spaces indentation and column limit of 100 characters aren’t applied in the code and my IDE is formatting the code using those rules. As I’ve said before this may seem a trivial issue but I want to be sure that I am not doing something wrong while modifying existing classes.

What you can do in this case is reformat the code base in accordance to the above specifications and send a PR. For the rest of your query, I will give way for a more experienced contributor to Fineract 1.x to respond. Thanks.
