Main Paragraph 5.14 Самая подробная информация window washing manhattan на сайте.

Insert the following paragraph below paragraph No. 5.14.1 :—

5.14.2. Expenditure incurred under the Consolidated Fund of India and booked to the correct heads is also accounted for in the Appropriation Accounts and forms part of the balances under "Government Account" or under Loan, Debt, etc. heads in the Finance Accounts.

Certain types of decisions taken by Government occasionally, affect such balances (which represent progressive effect of bookings during earlier years), and necessitate alteration in the figures of balances exhibited in the "Ledger of balances", Finance Accounts, etc. For this purpose, the device of "proforma correction" is adopted so as not to have to pass the old transactions of expenditure, etc. once again through the monthly accounts/S.C.T. of the year whose accounts are open at the time the relevant Government decision is taken.

The following are some main types of situations in which "Proforma corrections" are required to be resorted to :—

(i) Whenever a decision is taken by Govt. (i.e. Ministry/Department concerned in consultation with the Budget Division of the Department of Economic Affairs, C.G.A. and on the advice of the C. & A.G.) to change classification of a specific type of transaction from a head closing to "Government Account" or to balance under a Loan, Debt, etc. head to another Loan, Debt, etc. head which closes to balance. The decision would imply that the aggregate effect of transactions booked during earlier years under the relevant affected head would have to be transferred to the new head selected for the purpose. An example of this type which arose recently is the decision that investment in the form of debentures which was being booked earlier against an investment head concerned (capital head closing to Government Account) should be deemed to be a sort of loan, and booked to the relevant Major Head under Section F—Loan and Advances. Another example is of consolidation of loans given to States, as a result of recommendation of the Finance Commission, which involves transfer of aggregate balances from Minor Heads under relevant sub-Major Heads to various Minor Heads under the new Sub-Major Head e.g. "F-Pre 1979-80 Loans" below the Major Head "760-Loans and Advances to State Governments".

(ii) Based on decisions of Government, Controller of Aid Accounts and Audit as well as Railway Board effect certain increases or decreases in the opening balances of heads of account operated upon exclusively by them, without routing adjustments through the monthly accounts or State of Central Transactions of the year for which the Finance Accounts are under preparation.

(iii) If and when under special orders of Government, a Government aided institution is taken over without any cash outgo for being run as a Departmental Undertaking, balances pertaining to its liabilities, namely, loans and advances borrowed by it and assets and investments owned by it, are taken under the relevant head of account with a contra entry against "Government Account" and or loan head under which loans may have been given to it earlier. Similarly, where a Departmental Undertaking is converted into a Company or Corporation, etc. the balances (or progressive capital expenditure under various capital expenditure heads) pertaining to the Undertaking, would need re-classification under the appropriate heads in the light of the change in status of the Undertaking. In such cases also, "Proforma corrections" of the balances under relevant heads would be necessary.

(iv) Whenever a decision is taken by Central Govt. for conversion of a Grant-in-aid given during any earlier financial year a State Govt. or U.T. Govt. into a loan; or a loan given into a Grant-in-aid with retrospective effect, after issuing necessary sanction therefor and including necessary explanation in the notes on Demands for Grant concerned. In the former type of cases, the progressive figure under the Major Head "760-Loans and Advances to State Governments" will be increased through a "Proforma correction" after affording contra credit for a corresponding amount under "Government Account". This will have to be reflected in the ledger of balances "Form CAM-41", "Government Account" (Form CAM-42) and in the material for Finance Account to be submitted to CGA. A note should also be kept in the loan register indicating briefly the terms and conditions of the repayment of loan. In the case of retrospective conversion of a loan given earlier into a Grant-in-aid, the relevant sanction order should indicate the treatment to be given to the portion of loan which had already been repaid and also to the interest paid to Central Govt. by the recipient of the loan. "Proforma correction" would similarly be required so as to decrease the progressive figure under the relevant Minor Head under the Major Head "760-Loans and Advances to State Governments" by affording contra debit to the extent of the corresponding amount to "Government Account" in the relevant documents referred to above.

(v) Paras 10.8.5 and 10.8.6 envisage the raising of or lowering down of balance under the 3 Minor Heads "Advances for purchase of other conveyances", "Festival Advances" and "Other Advances" by Principal Accounts Offices, wherever necessary, with the approval of the C.G.A. To give effect to this, they would have to effect proforma corrections to the closing balance(s) against the affected head(s) in their ledger of balances in form CAM-41 reflecting contra effect in their "Government Account" in form CAM-42 and in the material for Finance Accounts to be submitted to C.G.A.

These balances are to be exhibited with a break up indicating those as on 31st of March of the preceding financial year, and the cumulative effect of transactions that had arisen from 1st April to the end of the month preceding the month in which the transfer is effected. The balance as on 31st March will be obtained from the Ledger of Balances (Form CAM-40) maintained by the relevant Pay and Accounts Office and the figures for the remaining period shall be based on the progressive figures of transactions appearing in the affected month's consolidated abstract. Before transferring the balances, it is to be ensured that in respect of major heads like 805, 842 etc. which involve calculation of interest, the interest on the balances (as at the end of the preceding financial year only) is worked out and added to the major/minor head totals through March (Supplementary) Accounts of the originating Department so as to ensure that the interest so calculated is also accounted for in his circle of Accounts and the balances transferred as on 31st of March of the preceding financial year takes into account all such calculations.

(B) Transfer of work involving transfer of a part of the work handled by a Pay & Accounts Office

(i) Balances under major heads 858—Suspense Accounts, (except as specified in the note given below) 870—Cheques and Bills, 875—Deposits with Reserve Bank, 886—Adjusting Accounts between Central and State Governments are not to be transferred to the new Accounts Office, but the circle in which the balances arose under these heads shall be responsible for clearing the outstandings based on the payment scrolls to be received from the Bank and response from the Accounts Officer against whom debits or credits had been raised through outward claims.

Note : In respect of the amounts held against the minor head "Suspense Account (Civil)" under the sub-heads "Unclassified Suspense", "Challans/vouchers suspense" and "outstation pay-bills for March" below the major head '858—Suspense Accounts', the originating PAO shall be responsible for obtaining the details from the departmental officer/bank concerned for the former two and pass on the vouchers/challans alongwith the details and the balances under these Suspense sub-heads to the PAO to whom the Department is transferred, to enable the latter to book the expenditure under the final heads in the accounts in hand after clearing the Suspense heads.

(ii) In respect of all the major heads for which individual-wise detailed accounts are maintained by the PAO, e.g. 766—Loans to Government servants HBA/MCA, and other loan heads, 805—GP Fund etc. the original ledger folios and relevant broad sheets shall continue to be held in the custody of the originating Accounts Office. It should, however, send a statement, individual-wise indicating balances as on 31st of March of the preceding financial year, subscriptions/recoveries effected during the current financial year (when the transfer is during middle of the year), monthwise, and should also furnish details of the drawal of original advances, like amount sanctioned, number and date of drawal of advances, certificate regarding agreements/mortgage deed having been executed by the Government servant in favour of the President of comprehensive insurance taken by him etc. to enable the succes-for Accounts Officer to make necessary entries in his broadsheets. [See paras 6.7.3 and 10.7.2 also].

(iii) In respect of major heads appearing under the Sector F—Loans and Advances, an extract from the relevant loan register should also be furnished.

(iv) In respect of Major heads appearing under the Sector K—Deposits and Advances, apart from furnishing a list of the deposits as per the relevant register (Form CAM-63), list of deposits already lapsed to Government extracted from register in Form CAM-63-A in terms of provisions of Rule 189 of Central Government Account (Receipts and Payments) Rules, 1983 should also be sent to the successor Accounts Office.

(C) Transfer of work involving transfer of an entire Pay and Accounts Office dealing with the Department's work.

In cases where the transfer of a Department involves transfer of its accredited Pay & Accounts Office in toto, [as in the case of Pay & Accounts Office attached to the Department of Civil Supplies], the balances outstanding under all the debt, deposit, suspense and remittance heads held in the books of that PAO shall be transferred without any exception to the Principal Accounts Office to which the PAO stands transferred. It will carry with it all its accounts records. The question of bifurcation of the balances under various heads as allocable and non-allocable, would not, arise and the PAO shall continue to be responsible for the final clearance of all transactions booked under the Various Suspense and remittance heads and for watching the repayment and proper accountal of loans given, deposits made and subscriptions recovered etc.

(D) Manner & format for effecting 'Proforma' transfer of balances

Two copies of the format given below, duly filled in and accompanied by necessary details such as analysis of difference between ledger and broadsheet, duly supported by extracts of details as mentioned in (B) or (C) above shall be sent by the originating (i.e. transferor) Principal Accounts Office to the Principal Accounts Office (responding or transferee) of the Ministry to which the Department stands transferred. The responding Principal Accounts Office would adopt the ledger balance indicated in the format on 'Proforma basis' in his books and return one copy of the same to the originating Principal Accounts Office with a certificate that the ledger balances shown therein have been adopted on 'Proforma baisis' in his books. The originating Principal Accounts Office shall drop such balances from its books on receipt of a copy of the format from the responding Principal Accounts Office.

Para 11.5.1

Substitute the following for existing para 11.5.1

11.5.1 The following working principles have been laid down for selecting subheads in respect of which reasons for variations, both savings and excesses, are required to be included in the head-wise Appropriation Accounts :

(a) If the variation in a Sub-head exceeds Rs. 50 lakhs :

All variations both savings and excesses, irrespective of the percentage which the variation bears to the sanctioned provision (original or supplementary, or both taken together).

(b) If the variation in a Sub-head does not exceed Rs. 50 lakhs:

(i) Where the variation is an excess :—All cases in which the excess exceeds 10% of the total sanctioned provision or Rs. 5 lakhs, whichever is higher. The total sanctioned provision in this clause means the original provision (if there is no supplementary provision); supplementary provision (if there is no original provision); and original and supplementary provisions taken together; if both exist.

(ii) Where the variation is a saving :—All cases in which the saving exceeds 10% of the original provision of Rs. 5 lakhs, whichever is higher, if in that sub-head there is no supplementary provision. If, however, there is a supplementary provision in a sub-head, either with or without any original provision, all cases in which the saving exceeds 10% of the supplementary provision will be included.

(c) If the Grant/Appropriation as a whole has been exceeded (i.e. where excess has occurred in any of the four segments viz. voted revenue voted capital, charged revenue and charged capital) :

Only such sub-heads as involve an excess of over Rs. 1 lakh each, may be picked up. If, however, there is no individual sub-head involving an excess of over Rs. 1 lakh, subheads which mainly account for the overall excess may be included. Of course, the criteria laid down in (a) and (b) (ii) will also be followed.

Note: (1)     Notwithstanding the working principles mentioned in the preceding para, if it is considered necessary at any stage of processing of the Appropriation Accounts, either during audit, or after the completion of audit of the head-wise accounts, or even at the stage of condensation to include any additional sub-heads for the purpose of explaining the variations, explanations for variations in those sub-heads shall also be included in the head-wise Appropriation Accounts before they are got signed by the Secretary of the Ministry/Department as the Chief Accounting Authority.

Note: (2)     For the purpose of this para, variation means the variation under column 1 (re-appropriation element only) and the variation in column 4 taken together.

11.5.2 The reasons for variations should be brief, lucid and analytical. The reasons should be mentioned in the order of their importance. Vague observations like "due to over-estimates", "covered by re-apprapriation" should be avoided.

11.5.3 The accounts should be got independently checked with reference to the Check List furnished at Annexure IV and a certificate to the effect that the various requirements mentioned in the Check List have been complied with and incorporated in the Account may be obtained from the checker(s).
