APPENDIX 4

[See Note 3 below Rule 26(d)]

Subject:     Grants-in-aid and loans sanctioned by various Ministries/ Departments of the Government of India to State/Union Territory Governments in connection with Central Plan Schemes and Centrally sponsored Plan Schemes.

Grants-in-aid and loans are given by various Ministries/Departments of the Government of India to State Governments/Union Territory Governments under Central Plan Schemes and also Centrally sponsored Plan Schemes. Many of the Central Plan Schemes/Centrally sponsored Plan Schemes are common to a number of States/Union Territories. In order to achieve uniformity in the accountal of such central grants/ loans in the books of all recipient State/Union Territory Governments, the following procedure shall be adopted:

2.     Provisions for the release of grants-in-aid and loans to State/Union Territory Governments under Central Plan Schemes and Centrally-sponsored Plan Schemes are made in the Union Budget comprising (i) major/sub-major heads "3601/3602-Grants-in-aid to State/Union Territory Governments" alongwith 'grants for Central Plan Schemes' or 'grants for Centrally Sponsored Plan Schemes' and under "7601/7602 Loans and Advances to State/Union Territory Governments" alongwith "Loans for Central Plan Schemes' or 'Loans for Centrally Sponsored Plan Schemes' and (ii) minor heads thereunder with nomenclature designed in terms of paras 3.9 and 6.5 of 'General Directions' contained in the List of Major and Minor Heads of Account of Central and States. According to these paragraphs, the first portion of the nomenclature of the minor head is to indicate the function as per sub-major head (or where a sub-major head does not give any indication of the function e.g. General, the major head concerned is to be indicated in bracket; or in the absence of a sub-major head, function as per major head itself) on the revenue expenditure side and second portion is to indicate the programme minor head.

3.     Approval for the plan outlay under various schemes and also sanctions issued by the Central Ministries/Departments releasing grants-in-aid and/or loans, will indicate the budget head/head of the account upto minor head designed as above and also sub-detailed heads to which the expenditure is debitable in central books. The nomenclature of the minor head mentioned in the sanctions etc. would automatically provide necessary clue in regard to the major/sub-major and minor heads under which corresponding provisions should be budgeted for and expenditure accounted for in State/Union Territory Government books, and the sub/detailed heads mentioned in such sanctions would provide clue to similar heads to be opened in State/Union Territory Government books.

4.     Some illustrations of the manner in which budget head/account head should be devised in books of the recipient Government with reference to budget/account head in the central books and mentioned in the sanction etc. releasing the grant/loan by the Central Government Ministries/Departments, are given in the Annexure for facility of understanding the modus operandi of the above procedure.

5.     There may be some schemes/programmes in which constitution of a fund in the public account may also be involved. If the relevant sanction of the Ministry releasing fund relating to such a scheme does not indicate the head (s) of account to be operated upon in the public account portion etc. of the State/Union Territory Government, the Controller General of Accounts, Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) may be approached for the purpose of indicating necessary major/minor head of account in the interest of uniformity of classification.
