resulted in delay in closing of annual accounts in many cases. Suitable action may be taken to
ensure that the departmental reconciliation of both receipts and expenditure figures, if in
arrears, is brought up to date immediately.
7.
All adjustments of debit/credits relating to payments/receipts made during the year
2013-2014 by one Ministry/Department on behalf of another should be finally accounted for in

To complete the accounts, it is essential to conduct a thorough review of all cases of
periodical and annual adjustments including interest adjustments etc., which are to be carried
out in the account for the year 2013-2014. This may be done immediately, if need be, in
consultation with other CCAs/CAs concerned in order to ensure that no adjustments required to

have been duly incorporated before closing the Supplementary-II.

Annexure ‘B’
General instruction for preparation of material for the compilation of
Union Government Finance Accounts for the year 2013-14
1.
The material for the Union Government Finance Accounts is required to be submitted to
this office by rounding off the transactions to the nearest thousand of rupees. It has to
be ensured that figures during the year should tally with the figures appearing in
SCT/JEs. However, in respect of balances under Debt, Deposits and Remittances
heads, adopted/dropped on proforma basis, the full details of actual balances so
adopted/dropped are to be given in the supporting Statement as hitherto fore.
2.
Adverse balances under various heads and huge accumulations under ‘Suspense heads’
and “outstanding cheques” have been engaging the attention of the Government as
well as the Audit. In order to check the increase in the number of Adverse balances and
accumulation of balances under suspense heads and outstanding cheques it is
necessary that these should be scrutinized in depth and action taken immediately to
liquidate the same in the accounts for 2013-14 itself. CCA/CA/Dy. CA (holding
independent charge) of the Ministry/Department and Accountants General are required
to append an ‘Action Taken Note’ duly signed by him/her explaining therein the reasons
of adverse balances and remedial measures taken and also action taken for liquidation
of outstanding balances under Suspense heads along with the material for Statement
No. 13, 14, 14A and 16 of Finance Accounts.
3.
It has been seen in the past that one of the reasons for minus transactions as explained
in the SCT/Material was due to rectification of misclassification in previous years. This is
not acceptable to the Audit. The reasons of minus transactions wherever they occur,
should be specific and in case of rectification of misclassification, year/years to which
the misclassification pertains together with the relevant heads of Account should be
clarified.
4.
As per Para 17.13.2 of Civil Accounts Manual, the Principal Accounts Office is required
to furnish a consolidated report on Review of Balances for the preceding year for the
Ministry/Department as a whole by 15th October of next year. As such, consolidated

whole should reach Finance Accounts Section by 15th October, 2014.

Any variation should invariably be supported by valid remarks.

and shown in col. 2 of the statement for ‘Maximum amount guaranteed during the year’
i.e. (col. 2) = “(col. 3) + (col. 4)”
x.

The Principal Accounts Offices have already adopted the balances under Debt; Deposits and
Remittances heads allocated to them by the Accountants General up to 31.3.2013 on
proforma basis and have already included these balances in their Statement No.13 for
2013-14 in accordance with instructions issued on the subject. The opening Balances as on
1.4.2013 should, therefore, include balances adopted by them up to 31.3.2013.
Only the balances shown as adopted in the annual progress report, which falls due for
submission to this Office by 23.05.2014 vide item 2(ii) of the Time Schedule for closing of
annual accounts should be shown in col.3 of Statement No.13. The number and date of the
communication furnishing the annual progress report may also please be quoted if this
Statement has already been sent.
(b) The following points should also be kept in view:-
i.
The Statement should be prepared according to the minor heads of account strictly
in accordance with the authorised Major/Minor heads of Accounts as per the List of
Major and Minor Heads of Account. The totals against each major/minor head of
account should be worked out.

18
ii.
The figures of ‘Receipts’ and ‘Disbursements’ during the year against each
Major/Minor head of account should agree with the corresponding figures shown in
the Statement of Central Transactions.
iii.
The figures appearing under column 6 (Disbursements) and column 7 (Closing
balance) under suspense major heads ‘8658-to 8663’ would give a clue that certain
items/transactions remain there under without clearance and adjustment to the final
expenditure head in the Appropriation Accounts of the concerned Demand for
Grants. It should, therefore, be ensured that, normally no balance remains
outstanding under any of these heads at the end of the year. Of course, balance
representing amounts of outstation pay bills pertaining to March encashed during
that month shall remain outstanding under the minor head Suspense Accounts
(Civil).
iv.
The outstanding amount under the Major Head ‘8670-Cheques and Bills’ should
represent the amount of unencashed cheques only. Normally, no amount should
remain outstanding under this head beyond three months. The balance under this
head may please be reviewed frequently for taking remedial action, where
necessary. A statement showing the amount of outstanding cheques in respect of
cheques issued on or before 31.12.2013 under different minor heads may be
furnished along with the material for statement no.13 in the format given below:

A similar statement showing the amount of outstanding cheques as on 31.06.2014
for cheques issued on or before 31.3.2014 under different minor heads may be
furnished by 16.07.2014.
v.
The minor head ‘Departmental Adjusting Account’ under Major Head ‘8658-111
Suspense Accounts’ became inoperative with effect from the accounts for 1982-83
in the books of departmentalised accounting authorities. It may, therefore, be
ensured that no new accretions appear under this head during 2013-14, but old
items could be cleared by operating this minor head. Action may be taken to clear
the outstanding balance at the end of 2013-14.
vi.
In accordance with the instructions contained in Note (4) below the Major Head
8658 Suspense Accounts to the List of Major and Minor Heads of Account, Central
PAOs (except Cabinet Secretariat) are not permitted to operate the minor head
8658-00-107 Cash Settlement Suspense Account. It may, therefore, be ensured
that no new accretions appear under this head during 2013-14 but old items could
be cleared by operating this minor head. Action may please be taken to clear the
outstanding balances at the end of 2013-14.
vii.
The outstanding balances under various suspense minor heads below the Major
Heads ‘8658 to 8663’ as at the end of 2013-14 may be reviewed and suitable steps
taken to clear all outstanding items/ to bring down the outstanding balances in due
course. The year-wise breakup of the balances as on 31.3.2014 may be furnished.

ix.
If there are any debit balances under heads against which there should normally be
credit balance or vice versa representing adverse balances the reasons therefore
should be fully explained in footnotes along with the action taken to liquidate the
adverse balances.
x.
There should normally be no minus transaction under any head except Suspense
heads during the year. If there are any, full reasons therefore may be indicated.
xi.
The opening balances under Debt, Deposits and Remittances heads should agree
with the respective closing balances shown in preceding year’s statement. The
rectification of misclassification relating to earlier years in the case of Debt, Deposits
and Remittances heads of account detected as a result of reconciliation of balances
or otherwise are required to be carried out through regular accounts in the manner
prescribed in Para 5.3.4 of Civil Accounts Manual. Correction to balances without
any actual accounting adjustment which used to be carried out proforma prior to
1982-83, are now made through ‘Prior Period Adjustment’ as envisaged in Para
5.15.3 of Civil Accounts Manual. This requirement may be kept in view while
furnishing material for Statement No.13 of Union Government Finance Accounts,
2013-14. It should be ensured that wherever a footnote was given during an earlier
year, promising further action/ probe and remedial steps, this is actually done in the
subsequent year; and, if not, the reasons therefore may be indicated.

Funds, etc.’ may be shown by Sub-major Heads/Minor Heads against relevant major
head of account in Statement No.13 as these details are required for compilation of
