PREFACE
The Central Government Account ( Receipts and Payments) Rules contain rules regulating the custody of the
Consolidated Fund of India and the Contingency Fund of India, the payment of moneys into such funds, the
withdrawal of money therefrom, the custody of public moneys other than those credited to such funds received
by or on behalf of the Government of India, their payment into the Public Account of India and the withdrawal
of moneys from such Account in and others matters connected therewith or ancillary thereto. Applicability
thereof is indicated in sub-rule 3 of rule 1 thereof. Due to the introduction of the system of departmentalisation
of accounts of all transactions (except payments relating to pensionary benefits) of Central Civil, Ministries and
Departments during 1976-77, and elimination of treasury system for related receipts and payments, Treasury
Rules of the Central Government do not fit in with the new system. Therefore, new rules (alongwith
appendices and forms) have been framed so as to meet the requirements of the said departmentalised
system of payments and accounting introduced in the Central Government, and separation of accounts from
audit introduced in the Union territory of Delhi from 1-4-1977 and in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands from 1-
6-1980.
2. Payments relating to certain pensionary benefits of Central Government pensioners still continue to be
made through State and Union territory treasuries and also through public sector banks which are required to
render accounts of such transactions, to treasury etc. Therefore, rules meant to cover procedure for
submitting claims relating to this type of transactions have not been included in these new rules. Such
payments will continue to be governed by relevant rules (viz. rules No. 319 to 374 and 441) of the Treasury
Rules of the Central Government and the scheme for payment of pension through public sector banks. Posts
& Telegraphs and Defence departments continue to have departmental treasure chests in some of their
offices. Relevant rules of the Treasury Rules of the Central Government will continue to be applicable to them
in regard to custody and operation of the departmental treasure chests.
3. These rules have been cleared by the Comptroller and Auditor—General, by the Reserve Bank of India in
so far as rules having an impact on banks and banking procedures are concerned, and vetted by the Ministry
of Law (Legislative Department). The help and co-operation extended by the various officers in these
organisations is gratefully acknowledged.
4. Union Territory Governments whose accounts have been separated from audit may follow these rules by
adapting them in terms of sub-section (3) of sections 47 and 48 of the Union Territories Act, 1963.
(K. LALIT),
Controller General of Accounts.

without cheque drawing powers), or both: —
(i) Every such officer (referred to in this rule as the Head of the Office) should maintain a cash
book in Form G.A.R.3.
(ii) All monetary transactions should be entered in the cash book as soon as they occur and
attested by the Head of the Office in token of check.
Exception (a).—An 'Account Payee' crossed cheque or bank draft drawn in the personal name of a recipient
(Government servant or third party) by a Pay and Accounts Officer (or by a cheque drawing D.D.O.) and routed
through a departmental office merely for the purpose of delivery to the recipient thereof, need not be entered by
the latter office in its cash book; the delivery of such a cheque or draft to the concerned party may be recorded
in, and watched through a separate "crossed cheques and bank drafts transit register."
Exception (b).—Cheques issued by cheque-drawing D.D.O.s are required to be entered in a 'Register of Cheques
issued' in Form G.A.R.4. Therefore, only those cheques drawn by him which are encashable in his capacity as
Disbursing Officer for arranging payments in cash, need be entered in the cash book.

Exception (c).—Receipts in the form of local cheques, or demand drafts (to be crossed) in favour of Pay and
Accounts Officers (or endorsed in their favour as per Note 2 under rule 18) accepted by non-cheque drawing
D.D.Os need not be entered in the Cash Book but should be entered in the Register of Valuables (Form G.A.R. 5)
and remitted into the accredited bank duly supported by challans for credit to Govt. Account.
{Refer
Correction Slip 20
(iii) The cash book should be closed regularly and completely checked. The Head of the Office
should verify the totalling of the cash book or have this done by some responsible subordinate
other than the writer of the cash book and initial it as correct. {Refer to Correction Slip 24}
Exception: In order to minimise the balance under 'Traffic Suspense - Cash-in-Transit' at the close of financial
year, Ministry of Railways may keep their cash books open for the month of March each year upto 18th April for
N.F.Railway, and upto 10th April in respect of other Indian Railways.
(iv) At the end of each month, Head of the Office should verify the cash balance in the cash book
and record a signed and dated certificate to that effect. In regard to any discrepancy noticed
therein, the instructions contained in Section V of Chapter 2 of the General Financial Rules,
1963 should be followed. In case the verification of cash balance is not possible on the last
working day of a month on account of disbursement of, monthly salary and allowances, it may
be done on the first working day of the next month before making any transactions on that day.
(v) Entries made in the cash book regarding remittance of receipts to the accredited bank for
credit into Government Account should be attested by the Head of Office after verifying them
with reference to the bank's receipt recorded on the pay-in-slips or challans. When the credit
appears in the receipt scroll from the bank, the actual date of realisation of the cheque or draft
should be indicated by cheque drawing D.D.O.s against the original entry in the cash book so as
to keep track of outstanding items.
(vi) An erasure or over-writing of an entry once made in the cash book is strictly prohibited. If a
mistake is discovered, it should be corrected by drawing the pen through the incorrect entry and
inserting the correct one in red ink between the lines. The Head of Office should initial every
such correction and invariably date his initials.
(vii) A Government officer who handles Government money should not, except with the special
sanction of the Head of Office be allowed to handle also in his official capacity money which
does not belong to the Government. Where under any special sanction, a Government officer
deals with both Government and non-Government money in his official capacity, the
Government money should be kept in a cash box separate from the non-Government money
and the transactions relating to the latter should be accounted for in a separate set of books and
kept entirely out of the Government Account.
(viii) The employment of peons to fetch or carry money should be discouraged. When it is
absolutely necessary to employ one for this purpose, a man of some length of service and
proved trust worthiness should only be selected and in case where the amount to be handled is
large, one or more guards should accompany the messenger.
NOTE 1.—The duties imposed by clauses (ii) to (vi) of this rule on the Head of Office may be entrusted to a
subordinate gazetted officer nominated by the Head of Office for this purpose.
NOTE 2.—The cash books should be bound in convenient volumes and their pages machine numbered. Before
bringing a cash book into use, the Head of Office or the officer nominated by him under Note 1 should count the
number of pages and record a certificate of count on the first page of the cash book.
NOTE 3.—If large number of bank drafts, cheques are received by any departmental office, receipt thereof and
remittance into bank need not be entered individual itemwise in the cash book. It would be sufficient if the total
of the daily entries pertaining to the same classification from a register of valuable (Form G.A.R. 5) maintained
for the purpose is carried to the cash book giving cross reference in the latter to the serial numbers thereof in the
former.

NOTE 4.—Cash and other valuables held in safe custody, on behalf of the Government, by a departmental officer
or drawing and disbursing officer should be kept in an adequately strong cash chest or almirah (where,
necessary, even embedded in the wall). The type of cash chest to be used for the purpose may be decided on the
basis of the amount of cash and other valuables generally required to be kept therein in safe custody, and other
relevant circumstances, such as general state of security of the premises of the office, the areas in which it is
located, etc. The cash chest/ almirah should be secured by two locks of different patterns so that the keys of one
do not fit into the other. The keys of such locks should be kept in different persons custody where practicable;
and in any case, should be kept apart from that of the other lock so that the chest will not be accessible to
unauthorised persons. The chest should not be opened unless both the custodians of the two locks are present
for the purpose. Duplicate keys thereof should be placed in separate sealed covers and lodged with different
officers of higher rank than the custodians of the chest. Wherever possible, such sealed covers should be kept in
the relevant branch of the accredited bank conducting business of the department concerned.
A duplicate keys register should be maintained indicating the authorities with whom they are lodged. Once a
year, in April, the keys must be sent for examination and returned under fresh sealed covers to the respective
officer / bank with whom they are meant to be lodged, and a note kept in the register that they have been
inspected and found intact and genuine and sent back to the nominated authorities. Similarly, entries should be
made in the register in regard to any occasion when the duplicate keys had to be obtained for opening the chest
and the date of re-sealing and lodging with the nominated authorities.
Subject as provided in the preceding paras of this note, the detailed procedure to be observed with regard to the
custody of Government money in the possession of the departmental officers may be laid down by departmental
regulations.
14. Adjustment of transactions of the Government with a State Government.-
No transactions of the Government with a State shall be adjusted against the balance of the Government
except in accordance with such directions as may be given by the Controller General of Accounts on the
advice of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India to regulate, the procedure for the accounting of such
transactions.
15. Extent of responsibility of the Reserve Bank in connection with the business of
Government.-
Nothing contained in, or in the application of these rules shall have effect so as to impose upon the Reserve
Bank in connection with the business of the Government any responsibility not imposed upon it by the terms of
the agreement referred to in rule 3.
NOTE.—The bank will be kept open for the conduct of Government transactions on a recognised holiday, or
beyond normal business hours on any day (e.g. on the last working day of March every year), if so required by
the Controller General of Accounts, or by any authority or authorities nominated by him.
16. Authority competent to frame departmental regulations for detailed procedures
under these rules.-
(1) Where, under the provisions of these rules, detailed procedure with respect to any matter is required to be
prescribed or regulated by departmental regulations, such regulations relating to particular departments shall
be made by the Government, or with the approval of the Government, by such departmental authorities as
may be authorised by the Government to act in this behalf.

PART II
RECEIPT OF GOVERNMENT REVENUES, DUES, ETC. AND
CREDITING THEM INTO THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNT
18. Acceptance of Government revenues, etc. by departmental officers.-
Government revenues, dues or other moneys receivable on Government account may be realised in cash
(namely, in legal tender coins or notes), or by cheques or drafts drawn on any local branch of a scheduled
bank or by money orders or postal orders or in such other form as may be prescribed by Government.
Revenues and dues of the Government are generally received by departmental Officers or by specified
branches of the accredited bank in the form of crossed local drafts or local cheques or in cash unless
otherwise specifically ordered. Unless specially authorised to receive higher amounts in cash, departmental
officers may normally receive cash upto an amount not exceeding Rs. 100 in each case.
NOTE 1.—The term 'local branch' as used in this rule and in rule 19, means a branch of a bank located at the
station in which (a) a departmental officer with cheque drawing powers or (b) a Pay and Accounts Officer
accredited to a departmental officer without cheque drawing powers, in whose favour (by official designation) the
instrument is to be drawn or (c) the specified branch of the bank is situated.
NOTE 2.—Such instruments being accepted by departmental officers not having cheque drawing powers, should
be drawn in favour (indicating official designation) of the concerned Pay and Accounts Officers. However, when
cheques or bank drafts are received in the name of departmental officers under any Act or rule or otherwise,
these may be endorsed by them for payment to their respective Pay and Accounts Officers. Revenues and dues
received in cash by such departmental officers functioning at places other than those of their Pay and Accounts
Offices may be remitted to the latter office by means of crossed bank drafts, for being credited into Government
Account.
NOTE 3.—Notwithstanding the above provisions, and the provisions of rule 19, a Ministry, Department and, or
union territory in consultation with the Controller General of Accounts may specify that only bank drafts (but not
cheques) should be tendered in payment of Government dues to any category of or all its departmental officers
wherever this is not contrary to the provisions of any Act under which the dues are realised; or the Controller
General of Accounts may on his own, stipulate similarly in respect of certain categories of departmental officers.
19. Cheque, bank drafts tendered in payment of Government revenues, dues, etc.—
(1) (a) Cheques, bank drafts drawn on local branch of a scheduled bank may be accepted by departmental
officers or by the specified branch of the accredited bank or by a bank specially notified for the purpose, in
payment of Government dues or in settlement of other transactions with the Government, subject to the
provisions of special instructions, if any, issued by a Ministry, Department and, or union territory, in
consultation with the Controller General of Accounts, relating to any specific type of dues being followed. The
cheques, bank drafts, should be crossed by the drawer before tendering. However, until they are cleared, the
Government cannot admit that payment has been received; consequently, the receipt of the cheque alone
may be acknowledged when it is tendered. A formal payment receipt shall be given to the tenderer (or sent to
his address wherever such an arrangement is envisaged by the department, or bank) after the cheque or draft
has been cleared. The preliminary acknowledgement of the receipt of the cheque or draft, will be given in the
form indicated below by the departmental Officers:—
"Received cheque/ draft number ------- for Rs -------- drawn on --------- on account of --------".
NOTE 1.—The bank reserve to itself the right to refuse to accept cheques or drafts, collection of which in its
opinion cannot reasonably be undertaken. If, however, a bank draft drawn on a branch of a bank is tendered at
the same (i.e. the drawee) branch for being credited to Govt. account, the receipted challan may be delivered to
the tenderer on the same day, if the draft is otherwise in order. {Refer Correction Slip 11}
NOTE 2.—Metal or paper token or a preliminary acknowledgement as above will be issued by the bank to the
depositor to facilitate delivery of the receipted challan to him in due course.
(b) In the event of the cheque or draft being dishonoured, the fact shall be reported at once to the tenderer

with a demand for payment in cash and the dishonoured cheque or draft should be returned to the tenderer on
surrendering the preliminary acknowledgement of the receipt of the cheque or draft or any token previously
granted. The Government cannot, however, accept any liability for loss or damage which may possibly occur
as a result of delay in intimating that the cheque or draft has been dishonoured.
NOTE.—The challan accompanying the cheque or draft and presented to the bank should not be returned to the
tenderer when the dishonoured cheque or draft is returned to him but should be retained and destroyed in due
course.
(c) In the case of Government dues which are payable by a certain fixed date, the person desiring to make
payments by means of cheque or bank draft must take suitable precaution to ensure that his cheque or draft
reaches the bank or the departmental office concerned in good time, keeping in view the provisions of rule 20
(i) and (ii). The bank, and, or departmental office may, at its discretion, refuse to accept—
(i) cheques or drafts tendered on the last day to the former, and on the last two working days to
the latter respectively; and, or
(ii) cheques or drafts which require clearance at the inter-bank clearing house before credit can
be afforded to Government Account, if and when work of such clearing house is disrupted or
apprehended to get disrupted so as to impede realisation of credit thereof by the due date.
Explanation.—For the purpose of this rule and rule 20 "working day" shall be deemed to be a day on which the
departmental office and the bank are both open for transacting their respective ordinary business.
(2) The Government may, in relation to any particular class of transactions involving payment of Government
dues, issue orders varying or relaxing any of the conditions prescribed in this rule.
20. Date of receipt of Government revenues, dues etc.—
Government dues tendered in the form of a cheque or draft which is accepted under the provisions of rule 19
and is honoured on presentation, shall be deemed to have been paid-
(i) where the cheque or draft is tendered to the bank, on the date on which it was cleared and
entered in the receipt scroll;
(ii) where a cheque or draft is tendered to a departmental officer (in cases where such tendering
is permissible or required under relevant departmental provisions) on the third working day after
its presentation;
(iii) if it is sent by post in pursuance of instructions to make payment by post, on the date on
which the cover containing it is put into the post:
Provided that, where a cheque or draft is marked as not payable before a certain date, the payment shall not
be deemed to have been made until the date on which it becomes payable.
NOTE.—The provisions of clause (iii) shall apply mutatis mutandis to payments made to the Government by
postal money order or by any other recognised mode of remitting money by post, wherever such a mode of
payment is authorised by any particular department.
21. Grant of receipt to the payer by departmental Officers.—
(1) Subject to the procedure prescribed in clause (a) of sub-rule (1) of rule 19 being observed, the Head of an
office where money is received on behalf of the Government must give the payer a receipt duly signed by him
after he has satisfied himself, before signing the receipt and initialling its counterfoil, that the amount has been
properly entered in the cash book. If the circumstances so justify, he may at his discretion authorise any other
officer subordinate to him, whether gazetted or non-gazetted, to sign such receipts for him.

Note.—It is not necessary to issue a receipt to a payer in case where the field staff of the National Savings
Organisation receive moneys on account of sale of savings boxes.
(2) Where money is realised not in cash but by recovery from a payment made on a bill setting forth full
particulars of the deduction, receipt may be granted only if specially desired by the payer, the fact of the
recovery having been made by deduction from the bill being clearly recorded on the receipt.
(3) All receipts must be written in figures and in words in the original and signed in full over the 'Cash
Received/| Received Payment' stamps. Other copies thereof, may however, be initialled against the amount
already indicated therein over the "Cash Received/ Received Payment' stamp.
22. Form and custody of receipt books.—
(1) Receipt books in machine numbered Form G.A.R. 6 may be obtained from the Central Forms Store,
Calcutta. This standard form shall be used by all Government officers receiving money on behalf of the
Government unless any special form of receipt is prescribed by Departmental regulations to suit the
convenience of any particular department or office.
(2) The receipt books must be kept under lock and key in the personal custody of the Officer authorised to
sign the receipt on behalf of the Government.
(3) Before a receipt book is brought into use, the number of forms contained therein shall be counted and the
result recorded in a conspicuous place in the book over the signature of the Government officer in charge of
the book. Counterfoils of used receipt books shall be kept in his personal custody.
23. Issue of duplicates and copies of receipts.—
No Government officer may issue duplicates or copies of receipts granted for money received on the
allegation that the originals have been lost. If any necessity arises for such a document, a certificate may be
given that on a specified day a certain sum on a certain account was received from a certain person. This
prohibition extends only to the issue of duplicates on the allegation that the originals have been lost and does
not apply to cases authorised by these rules or by special orders of the Government in which duplicates have
to be prepared and tendered with originals.
24. Detailed procedure to be prescribed through departmental regulation.—
Subject to the provisions of rules 18 to 23, departmental regulations may be framed for prescribing the
detailed procedure to be adopted in any particular department of the Government with regard to the realisation
of Government dues and granting of receipts for the money realised.
25. Procedure for affording transfer credit when departmental receipts are utilised for
payment.—
(1) Whenever under the provisions of sub-rule 2 of rule 6 moneys received on account of revenues, receipts if
the Government instead of being paid into the bank are Utilised to meet departmental payments, the gross
receipts and the payments made, therefrom shall be entered as receipts and expenditure in any record that
may be, kept of the payments into and withdrawal from the Consolidated Fund or Public Account as the case
may be, and accounted for as such to the Accounts Officer. If the receipts are in excess of the payments
made, the excess shall be remitted to the bank or Accounts Officer, as the case may be; and save where it is
otherwise provided in these rules, the officer making such remittance shall note on the challan prescribed
under rule 26 the full amount of cash actually received by him and per contra the expenses met therefrom and
not merely the net receipts.
(2) When the departmental officer submits a formal claim, or bill to the Accounts Officer in adjustment of
departmental receipts temporarily utilised for departmental payments, the words "received payment by
transfer credit to. ....................." (inserting the head of account to which the amount is creditable in the portion)

should be endorsed on the "Nil" claim or bill. Necessary superscription should be made on such a bill to
indicate that no cash payment is sought against it.
26. Grant of receipted challan by the bank.—
(1) Subject as otherwise provided in these rules or unless the Government direct otherwise in relation to any
particular class of transactions, any person or party paying money into the bank on Government account
under the provisions of rule 19 shall present with it challan (in duplicate, triplicate or quadruplicate as specified
by the concerned Ministry or Department) in Form GAR 7 showing distinctly the nature of the payment, the
department or office on whose account it is made, particulars of the concerned Pay and Accounts Office,
proper account classification of the credit, and where necessary, information relating to its allocation between
Government Department concerned. As far as possible separate challans should be used for moneys
creditable to different heads of account.
(2) Save where any other arrangement has been authorised by the Government for the supply of challan
forms, printed forms of challan, which may with advantage be bi-lingual, shall be supplied by the departmental
officer or by the bank free of charge.
NOTE 1.—Receipts relating to direct taxes (such as income tax, corporation tax) and indirect taxes (such as
customs and excise duties) administered respectively by the Central Board of Direct Taxes and the Central Board
of Excise and Customs, shall be credited or remitted by the tax payers into the Reserve Bank of India and
branches of specified public sector banks at a selected centre in accordance with rule 7, using challan forms
specifically prescribed under the relevant provisions of the schemes of revenue collection of these Boards.
NOTE 2.—In making rupee deposits to the Government Account in respect of imports financed under Direct
Payment Procedure applicable to various foreign loans or credits, Form GAR 8 shall be used invariably in
quadruplicate.
27. Examination fees.—
Fees payable by candidates in India for examinations conducted by the Union Public Service Commission or
Staff Selection Commission should be remitted to the Secretary of the respective commission by means of
crossed Indian Postal Orders or by such other negotiable instruments as may be notified by these
Commissions with the approval of Government. Such fees in the case of candidates residing outside India
may be received by the Missions abroad.

PART III
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNT
SECTION I: GENERAL RULES RELATING TO CLAIMS FOR WITHDRAWALS AND MANNER
OF PAYMENT
28. Mode of withdrawals.
Save as otherwise specially provided in these rules or unless Government in the Ministry of Finance
(Department of Expenditure) otherwise direct in any case, no withdrawal of money may be made from the
Government Account except by presentation of bill in support of relevant claim for the purpose.
Explanation.—A bill is a statement of claims against the Government containing specification of the nature and
amount of the claim, either in gross or by items, and includes such a statement presented in the form of a simple
receipt. A bill becomes a voucher only when it is receipted and stamped 'PAID'. Office copies of bills (except of
regular monthly pay and allowances bill vide Note under rule 66) may be retained by each Drawing Officer
bearing only his initials (and not full signatures) and the words 'office copy' prominently written thereon.
29. Presentation of claims.—
Save as hereinafter provided bills drawn and presented by a departmental officer to an Accounts Officer or to
a cheque drawing DDO shall themselves be duly receipted for payments. Separate receipts, duly affixed with
revenue stamp wherever necessary, shall be obtained and furnished to the bill passing and paying authority at
the time of receiving payment from him in respect of all other payments claimed through bills.
30. Claims of, and payments to Suppliers, etc.
(1) When a person not in the Government employment claims payment for work done, service rendered or
articles supplied, such claims shall, unless there are express orders of the Government to the contrary, be
submitted through the Head of the Department or other responsible Government officer under whose
immediate order the service was done or the equivalent was given for which payment is demanded. The
officer to whom such a claim is submitted, shall be responsible for Completing the necessary formalities and
for making the payment with due expedition. The payment may be made by the officer by any recognised
mode of payment, that is by cheque as far as possible or by bank draft, or by Cash or by postal money order
at the request and expense of the payee concerned. The other relevant rules of this Section may also be
observed for the purpose. A certificate to the effect that the payment has been made to the proper person and
that a proper acknowledgement has been obtained and filed in his office may be sent to the Accounts Officer
when the payment is made to a private party.
(2) Payments to pensioners are governed by rules 319 to 374 (both inclusive) and 441 of the Treasury Rules
of the Central Government.
NOTE 1.—Payments due to contractors may, if so desired by them, be made to their banks instead of direct to
contractors, provided that the department concerned obtains:
(i) an authorisation from the contractor in the form of a legally valid document such as a power of attorney or
transfer deed, conferring authority on the bank to revive payment, and
(ii) the contractor's own acceptance of the correctness of the amount made out as being due to him by the
Government; or his signature on the bill or other claim preferred against the Government before settlement of
the account or claim by payment to the said bank. While the acknowledgement by a bank of cheque or draft
received towards payment shall constitute a full and sufficient discharge, for the payment, contractors should,
wherever possible, be induced to present their bills duly receipted and discharged through their bankers. Nothing
herein contained should operate to create in favour of the bank any right or equity vis-a-vis the Government.
NOTE 2.—Income tax is required to be deducted at source at the rate of 2 per cent in all cases of payment to
contractors and sub-contractors exceeding Rs.10,000 in terms of the provisions of Section 194-C of the Income

Tax Act, 1961 (43 of 1961).
31. Permanent Advances.—
Government officers may make such payments as are authorised to be paid out of permanent advances or
imprests which they are permitted to hold under orders of competent authority issued in terms of rule 90 of the
General Financial Rules, 1963 subject to recoupment on presentation of bills.
32. Arrear Claims.—
Claims against the Government which are not preferred within two year of their becoming due would attract
the provision of rules 82 to 88 of the General Financial Rules, 1963. After relevant requirements thereof are
satisfied, they may be presented to the Accounts Officer for pre-check payment; provided, further, that this
rule shall not apply to claims on account of arrears of pensions, the payment of which is regulated by rule 369
of the Treasury Rules of the Central Government.
33. Preparation of bills.—
The following instructions with regard to preparation of bills shall be observed.
(i) Printed forms of bills as prescribed under these rules or other departmental regulations
should, as far as possible, be used. Bill for all debt-head items should be drawn in separate
forms printed in red ink on white paper.
(ii) If, in any case, the use of a bill purely in any regional language becomes unavoidable, a brief
abstract should be endorsed in English under the signature of the preferring officer stating the
amount, the name of payee and the nature of the payment. .
(iii) All bills must be filled in and signed in ink; entries and signature with ball point pens are also
permissible provided the same are clear and legible. The amount of each bill should, as far as
whole rupees are concerned be written in words as well as in figures. The fraction of a rupee
may, however, be written in figures after the words stating the number of rupees, but in the event
of there being no fraction of a rupee, the word 'only' must be inserted after the number of whole
rupees and care should be taken to leave no space for interpolation as in the following examples
'Rupees twenty-six only' 'Rupees twenty-five and 25 paise'.
(iv) All corrections and alterations in the total of a bill whether made in words or figures should be
attested by the full signature, with date, of the person signing the receipt as many times as such
corrections and alterations are made.
NOTE.—Erasures and overwriting in any bill are absolutely forbidden and must be avoided; if any correction be
necessary, the incorrect entry should be cancelled neatly in red ink and the correct entry inserted. Each such
correction or any interpolation deemed necessary should be authenticated by the drawing officer setting his full
signature with date against each.
(v) The full accounts classification must be recorded on each bill by the drawing officer, the
classification in the Budget being taken as a guide. The classification should also show whether
the expenditure is voted or charged; and as far as practicable, its allocation between
departments or between Central Government and State Governments where necessary.
(vi) Charges against two or more major heads should not be included in one bill.
NOTE.—This does not apply to the allowances of a Government servant drawn with pay, as in such case, the
whole of the allowances, even if belonging to two or more major heads of accounts, should be drawn on a single
bill, if debitable wholly to the Government.
(vii) When bills are presented on account of charges incurred under any special orders, the order

sanctioning the charge should be quoted and the sanction attached to the bill.
(viii) Dates of payment should, when possible, be noted by the payees in their
acknowledgements in sub-vouchers and acquittance rolls. If, for any reason (such as illiteracy or
the presentation of receipts in anticipation of payment), it is not possible for the dates of payment
to be noted by the payees, the dates of actual payment should be noted by disbursing officers on
the documents under their initials either separately for each payment or by groups as may be
found convenient.
(ix) When payment is desired wholly or partly by a bank draft (wherever payment by bank draft is
permissible) or by cheques in favour of another payee, formal application for the draft or cheque
should accompany the bill and the manner in which the payment is desired should also be
indicated in the drawer's receipt on the bill.
(x) the spaces left blank either in the money column or in the columns for particulars of the bill
should invariably be covered by oblique lines.
(xi) A note to the effect that the amount of the bill is below a specified amount expressed in
whole rupees, which is slightly in excess of the total amount of the bill, should invariably be
recorded in the body of the bill in red ink.
34. Form of bills.—
The forms prescribed for the preparation of bills relating to various classes of claims such as pay and
allowances of Government servants, contingencies, and the procedure to be observed in the presentation of
such claims are specified in the rules in the subsequent Sections and Parts.
NOTE 1.—A Bill Register in Form GAR 9 should be maintained by all Heads of Offices who are authorised to draw
money on bills signed by them. The register should be reviewed monthly by a gazetted officer and the result of
the review recorded thereon.
NOTE 2.—A Bill Transit Register in Form GAR 10 should be maintained by all Heads of Offices who are authorised
to draw money from the Accounts Officer/ cheque drawing D.D.O. as the case may be. To prevent presentation of
fraudulent bills, the register should be reviewed bi-weekly by a gazetted officer and the result of the review
recorded thereon.
35. Signature and counter-signature on bills.—
(1) Unless Government have expressly authorised it in the case of any specified office, no payment may be
made on a bill or order signed by a clerk instead of by the Head of an Office, although in the absence of the
latter the clerk may be signing letters for him. Nor may any money be paid on a bill or order signed with a
stamp. When the signature on the bill is given by a mark or seal or thumb or great toe impression, it shall be
attested by some known person. Signatures in Indian languages other than Hindi must always be
transliterated.
Note 1.- Bill affixed with facsimile signature of the authorised officer presented by the Posts & Telegraphs
Department for telegram and truck call call charges by the municipalities and corporations for water and
electricity charges and by Air India on account of their dues against Government (for passage fares, cargo and
excess luggage charges), forming sub-vouchers of the contingent bills may be accepted for payment, if otherwise
in order. Similarly, the recovery claims and credit notes affxied with facsimile signature of the authorised officer
of the Marine, Shipping, Electricity and Forest departments of the Andaman and Nicobar Administration may be
accepted, if they are otherwise in order.
Note 2.- Unsigned bills, prepared on computer, presented by Indian Airlines on account of its dues against the
Government (for passage fare, cargo and excess luggage charges) forming sub-vouchers of the contingent bills
may be accepted for payment if otherwise in order. The disbursing officer should, however, maintain a record
containing the complete details of journeys, etc. so that the claim when presented can be verified.
(2) The Head of an Office may authorise any Gazetted Officer serving under him to sign a bill or order for him,

communicating the name and specimen signature of the officer to the disbursing officer concerned. This will
not, however, relieve the Head of the Office in any way of his responsibility for the accuracy of the bill or for
the disposal of the money received in payment. When the above arrangements are made due to his temporary
absence from headquarters on account of leave or tour, he should immediately, on return, check that the bills
passed and cheques issued by the nominated officer during the period of his absence are correct, the
payments have been properly accounted for and record a certificate to this effect in the cash book. Similar
action may also be taken in case the arrangements are made due to his transfer but in that case, the
prescribed verification may be made by the successor officer, soon after he takes over the new charge.
(3) Bill requiring previous counter-signature shall not be presented for payments before such counter
signature has been obtained.
36. Duplicates and copies of bills, etc.-
(1) No Government officer may issue duplicates or copies of bills or other documents for the payment of
money which has already been paid, on the allegation that the originals have been lost. If any necessity arises
for such a document, a certificate may be given that on a specified day a certain sum was paid to a certain
person. This prohibition extends only to the issue of duplicates on the allegation that the originals have been
lost and does not apply to cases, if any, in which by any rule or order, duplicates have to be prepared and
tendered with the originals.
(2) In the case of a bill passed by the Drawing Officer or Controlling Officer for presentation to an Accounts
Officer or cheque-drawing D.D.O. as the case may be, but lost either before payment or before such
presentation, the Government Officer , who drew the original bill shall ascertain from the Accounts Officer or
Cheque drawing DDO that payment has not been made on it, before he issues a duplicate thereof. The
duplicate copy if issued must bear distinctly on its face the word 'duplicate' written in red ink. The fact that
duplicate bill has been issued shall be immediately communicated to the Accounts Officer or cheque-drawing
D.D.O. as the case may be, with instructions to refuse payments on the original bill if presented.
NOTE.- For the purposes of this rule, the Accounts Officer or cheque-drawing DDO, on receipt of a request
from any Drawing or Controlling Officer shall, after due verification from his records, furnish a certificate in the
following form:-
"Certified that Bill No........................ dated ..................... for Rs......................
(Rupees .................................) reported by .................................. (Drawing Officer) to have been drawn by
him in favour of ....................... has not been paid, and will not be paid if presented hereafter".
(3) When any kind of bill is required to be prepared in duplicate or triplicate, only one copy shall be signed or
counter-signed in full and the other copy or copies may be only initialled. Only the original copy shall be sent
Accounts Officer or cheque-drawing D.D.O. for payment.
37. Stamps for receipts-
Receipts from all sums exceeding Rs.20 must be stamped under section 3 read with item 53 of Schedule-I of
the Indian Stamp Act, 1899 (2 of 1899) unless they are exempt from stamp duty.
NOTE 1.- The limit of Rs.20 upto which a receipt is not required to be stamped should be applied to the net
amount payable on a bill and not to the gross claim preferred therein.
NOTE 2.- Receipts for payment made outside India should be obtained from the payees and stamped in
accordance with local laws, if any, governing the stamping of such receipts.
38. Source from which cheque books are to be obtained.-
(1) Subject as hereinafter provided in this rule, cheques on the accredited bank shall be drawn on forms
contained in cheque books supplied by the Accounts Officer or cheque-drawing D.D.O. concerned. Cheque
books are not to be obtained from the bank for the purpose.

(2) Drawing Officers of the Defence, Railways and Posts and Telegraphs shall obtain their supplies of cheque
books under departmental arrangements.
(3) Accounts Officers specially authorised by the Government to write cheques by means of cheque-
perforating machines may obtain their supply of, cheque forms by requisition from the Deputy Controller of
Stamps, Central Stamp Stores, Nasik Road. Such cheque forms shall be in continuous lengths and shall not
be bound in books.
39. Intimating branch bank regarding cheque book to be used.—
(1) The Accounts Officer or cheque-drawing D.D.O. shall notify to the branch bank upon with he draws, the
number of each cheque book which, from time to time; he brings into use and the number of cheques it
contains. The bank will keep a record of these particulars for verifying the genuineness of the cheques
presented for encashment.
NOTE.—Where cheques are authorised to be written by means of cheque perforating machines, there will be no
separate book number on the cheque forms. In such cases, the numbers assigned to cheque forms intended to
be used during a particular period shall be intimated to the relevant branches of the accredited bank by the
concerned Principal Accounts Office.
40. Scrutiny, safe custody and surrender of cheque books.—
(1) Cheque books shall, on receipt, be carefully examined by the drawing officer who should count the number
of forms contained in each and record a certificate of count on the flyleaf.
(2) Each cheque book must be kept under lock and key in the personal custody of the Accounts Officer and
cheque-drawing D.D.O. who, when relieved, shall take a receipt for the exact number of cheques made over
to the relieving officer.
(3) In cases where withdrawal of funds by cheques is no longer necessary, all the cheque forms of cheque
books which remain partly or wholly unused shall be surrendered to the Accounts Officer who will put to
proper use the books which are wholly unused after either taking them on stock under intimation to the
Principal Accounts Office and destroy by incineration the partly used ones under personal supervision after
keeping note of the fact in the relevant records under proper attestation.
41. Intimating branch bank about loss of cheque book, bank cheque form.—
The loss of a cheque book or a blank cheque form shall be notified promptly to the branch bank with which the
Accounts Officer or cheque drawing D.D.O. concerned has his account.
42. Instructions for indicating amounts of cheques.—
All cheques shall have written across them in words at right angles to the type, a sum a little in excess of that
for which they are drawn; thus 'under rupees thirty only' will mean that the cheque is for a sum not less than
Rs. 20 but less than Rs. 30 and similarly 'under rupees eight hundred only' will mean that it is for less than Rs
800 but not less than Rs. 700. The amount shall be written in the manner prescribed for bills in clause (iii) of
rule 33 and no abbreviation such as eleven hundred for 'one thousand one hundred' is permissible.
NOTE 1.—In drawing or cashing a cheque, it should be remembered that a common form of fraud consists in
altering the words 'one' into 'four' by prefixing an 'f' changing the 'e' into 'r', the figures being easily altered to
correspond. The word 'twenty' written carelessly has also sometimes been changed into 'seventy', the drawer of
a cheque in which these words occur should, therefore, so write them as to make the fraud impossible.
NOTE 2.—The cross entry is not necessary if the amount in words is type perforated by special cheque writing
machine.

NOTE 3.—There is no bar on cheques being drawn for less than Rs. 10. However, in the case of the Postal
Section of the Posts and Telegraphs Department, the lowest sum for which a cheque may be issued is Rs. 100.
NOTE 4.—All cheques should be written and signed in indelible ink only.
43. Attestation of corrections, alterations in a cheque.—
All corrections and alterations in a cheque shall be attested by the drawing officer over his full signature.
44. Types of cheque forms.—
(1) Cheque drawn in favour of Government offices or Departments or payment on account of inter-
departmental or inter-Governmental dues shall be crossed and the words "for credit to Government account
and not payable in cash" written between the lines.
NOTE.—A distinct format for this type of cheques, bearing the superscription "Government Account" has been
approved by the Controller General of Accounts for use by the Accounts Offices and also by cheque drawing
D.D.Os who have to pay telephone bills through cheques of this category in terms of rule 114 and are functioning
under the scheme of departmentalisation of Central (Civil) Accounts for the purpose of payment of inter-
departmental, inter-Governmental claims. These cheques are not negotiable and not payable in cash but
creditable to Government Account only. These special cheque forms, therefore, do not require to be crossed as
indicated in this sub-rule.
(2) Cheques payable to Government officers to enable them to make disbursement in cash, such as of pay
and allowances of establishments, of contingent expenditure on behalf of the. Government, shall be issued in
favour of the disbursing Government officer concerned by designation, the word "only" being added after the
designation of the payee officer on the cheque. Such cheques shall bear the superscription "not transferable"
on the top and are not negotiable.
NOTE 1.—A distinct format for this type of cheques bearing the superscription "Not-Transferable" has also been
approved by the Controller General of Accounts for use by Accounts Offices and by cheque-drawing D.D.Os under
the scheme referred to in the note under sub-rule (1).
NOTE 2.—In the case of such cheques, the payments will be made to the payee or to his messenger holding a
letter or authority for proper identification. The specimen signatures of these officers will be supplied to the bank
in advance and care will be taken by the bank to see that the signature given as discharge on the cheque agrees
with the specimen signature on its records.
(3) (a) Subject to the provisions of clause (b), all cheques towards payment or personal claims of Government
servants, pensioners, contractors, suppliers and public sector companies and corporation shall be drawn as
payable to or order of the payee.
(b) Cheques coming within the purview of clause (a), if drawn on the bank shall be crossed with the
superscription "Account Payee only" wherever the amount exceeds Rs. 1000 in regard to salary cheque, or
wherever the amount exceed Rs.500 in respect of non-salary cheques. Such non-salary cheque for an
amount not exceeding Rs. 1000 may, however, be issued as open cheque if so desired by the payee but only
as order cheque. It should be ensured that no payee makes it a practice to get uncrossed cheques in his
favour as a matter of course. {Refer Correction Slip 23}
NOTE 1.—A distinct format for this type of cheques bearing the words "Pay to......... or order" on its body has
been approved by the Controller General of Accounts for use by Accounts Offices and cheque drawing D.D.Os
under the said scheme.
NOTE 2.—Government servants are permitted to receive their salary in cash or by cheque at their option.
Acquittance for the payments made to them shall be obtained in accordance with the provisions of rule 92 of
these rules. An option, in this regard will, however, be exercised in March every year for the ensuing financial
year. Payments other than of salary will also be made by the same kind of payment as of salary. However, in
bases where salary is payable in cash, other payments like house building advance may nevertheless be paid by
cheque if these are heavy and where specifically requested for in writing by the payee.

NOTE 3.—In cases where the working of any bank accredited to a Ministry, Department or Union territory is
affected by go-slow and timely payment of salary and other payments is likely to be delayed, the officers and
staff getting salary by cheques may be issued 'open' instead of 'Account Payee' cheques even when the amount
to be paid in a case exceeds Rs. 1000. For this purpose, the provisions contained in clause (b) of sub-rule 3 may
be relaxed by the Chief Controller of Accounts or Controller of Accounts or Deputy Controller of Accounts with the
approval of the Financial Adviser in respect of payments to be made at the headquarters of the Ministry or
Department. At other places, similar action may be taken by the concerned Pay and Accounts Officer with the
approval of the Head of Department, subject to the condition that whenever such relaxation is granted, a report
to that effect is immediately furnished to the Chief Controller, Controller of Accounts or Deputy Controller of
Accounts, as the case may be. This procedure may also be followed by the relevant offices in the Posts and
Telegraphs, Defence and Railway Departments.
NOTE 4.—'Open' cheque will invariably be made over to the individual payees through the concerned Drawing
and Disbursing Officers who would be responsible for obtaining their acknowledgement in the register in Form
GAR 11.
45. Period of validity of a cheque.—
Cheque shall be payable at any time within three months after the month of issue; thus a cheque bearing any
date in January is payable at any time upto 30th April.
NOTE.—The provisions of this rule do not apply to cheques drawn on local banks by the Indian Missions and
Posts abroad. The period of currency of cheques in these cases will be determined according to local regulations
of the country concerned.
46. Procedure for revalidation of a time-barred cheque, etc.—
(1) A time-barred cheque may be received back by the drawer and in a case where its amount was not
cancelled and written back in the accounts in accordance with the provisions of sub-rule (2) of rule 47 and it is
not older than one year from its original date, may be revalidated under the signature of the drawer by
changing the date; otherwise, a new cheque may be issued in lieu thereof, after he satisfies himself about the
reasons for its non-encashment and also justification for revalidation or issue of a new cheque in lieu. The fact
of receipt of the time-barred cheque and action taken should be noted on its counterfoil and in the register of
cheques delivered; and in the latter case, necessary cross reference should be given in the new counterfoil.
Where the drawer of the cheque is a cheque drawing D.D.O., he should deface it suitably and forward it to the
Pay and Accounts Office alongwith the list of payments, in support of the item representing the drawal of the
new cheque.
(2) In the event of the non-return of the time-barred cheque to the drawer, the drawer should, on the expiry of
the prescribed period of 3 months after the month of issue of the cheque, request the payee either to return
the cheque or explain the causes for its non-return and take further action, as may be necessary, in terms of
the provisions of rule 47 or 48, as the case may be.
47. Procedure for cancellation of a cheque.—
(1) When it is necessary to cancel a cheque, (i) in cases where the cheque is not issued, its cancellation
should be recorded with dated signature on the counterfoil and the cheque should be destroyed;
(ii) where it is issued and withdrawn, after similar note on its counterfoil, it should be defaced;
and forwarded to the Pay and Accounts Office where the drawer is a cheque-drawing D.D.O.;
entries in the accounts should be suitably reversed;
(iii) if the cheque is not in the drawer's possession after satisfying himself with reference to his
records (namely payment and error scrolls and register of cheques delivered) that it is not paid,
he should promptly send an intimation by registered post (acknowledgement due) to the branch
bank on which it is drawn to stop payment of the cheque. In case the drawer is a cheque-
drawing D.D.O., he should inform the Pay and Accounts Office. If the currency of the cheque has
not expired at the time of sending the intimation, the bank shall acknowledge in writing in the

form indicated in clause (i) of sub-rule (2) of rule 48 that it has kept a note of the 'stop payment'
order.
(2) A cheque remaining unpaid for any cause, six months after the month of its issue and not surrendered for
renewal should be cancelled in the manner indicated in clause (iii) of sub-rule (1) with the difference that no
acknowledgement of the stop order may be insisted from the bank. Its amount should also be written back in
the accounts.
NOTE.—Fan-fold cheques used in the Defence Accounts Department and cheque forms in continuous lengths
permitted to be used by certain offices under the provisions of sub-rule (3) of rule 38 have no counterfoil. The
cancellation of such cheques, should, therefore, be recorded by the drawing office on the copy of the schedule of
cheques issued and the register of bill payments, as the case may be.
48. Lost cheques.—
(1) A request for the issue of a cheque in lieu of a cheque alleged to be lost, may be entertained if the request
is received by the Pay and Accounts Officer or Accounts Officer or cheque-drawing D.D.O. who had issued
the original cheque, within a period of one year from the date of issue of the original cheque, irrespective of
the date on which the relevant claim had accrued. However, the concerned Principal Accounts Officer may,
nevertheless, order entertainment of such a request received by the Pay and Accounts Officer or Accounts
Officer of cheque-drawing D.D.O. within a period of 3-1/2 years from the date on which the relevant claim had
become due, wherever this is beneficial.
(2) The Pay and Accounts Officer shall proceed with a request relating to a cheque issued by him and which
satisfies the above conditions in the manner stated below:
(i) The Pay and Accounts Office should send an intimation by registered post, acknowledgement
due, to the bank drawn on regarding the alleged loss of the cheque and advise it to stop
payment if the cheque alleged to have been lost is presented for payment thereafter. If the
currency of such a cheque has not expired in terms of rule 45 ibid at the time of sending such an
intimation, the bank shall acknowledge in writing in the following form, that it has kept a note of
the Stop Payment Order:—
"We acknowledge receipt of your letter No.....dated.......... and advice having noted to stop
payment of cheque No .... ........dated .......for Rs...........Rupees....... favouring.............
In this connection, it is certified, that cheque No. ............dated. ........for Rs. ..... reported by the
drawing officer to have been drawn by him on this bank in favour of....... ..... .will not be paid if
presented thereafter."
In case, however, the currency of the cheque alleged to have been lost has expired when the
intimation regarding loss of cheque is sent to the bank, no acknowledgement of the Stop
Payment Order may be insisted from the bank. The postal acknowledgement may be treated as
sufficient for the record of the Pay and Accounts Office.
(ii) The Pay and Accounts Officer should satisfy himself with reference to the records maintained
in his office such as the payment or error scrolls received from the paying bank and register of
cheques delivered, that the payment of the cheque in question has not been made. He should
also keep a suitable note on the counter-foil of the lost cheque and against the relevant entries in
the register of cheques delivered and paid voucher, regarding the Issue of a fresh cheque in lieu
of the lost one.
(iii) The Party requesting for the issuance of a fresh cheque in lieu of the lost one should execute
an indemnity bond in Form G.A.R. 12. However, in the case of a Government Department,
Public Undertakings wholly owned by Government or the bank, the execution of such an
indemnity bond is not necessary but a fresh cheque should, in these cases, be issued only on
receipt of a certificate that the cheque alleged to have been lost was not received by them or
having received the same, it was lost and further that it will be returned to the Pay and Accounts

Office if found afterwards.
(iv) on completion of the requirements in clauses (i) to (iii), the Pay and Accounts Officer Officer
may issue a fresh cheque in lieu of the lost one under intimation to the drawee office.
NOTE: If the currency of the lost cheque expires on Saturday, the Pay and Accounts Officer shall also verify the
scroll of cheques paid for the subsequent working day of the bank for purposes of clause (ii) and sub-rule (3).
(3) When cheque drawing D.D.O. reports to the paying branch of the bank about a cheque issued by him
having been lost, the bank shall record a 'Stop' against the cheque and issue an acknowledgement in the form
given in clause (i) of sub-rule 2. On receiving a copy of this acknowledgement from the said cheque-drawing
D.D.O., the Pay and Accounts Officer concerned will after verification of his relevant records such as register
of cheques delivered and after keeping a suitable note against the relevant entry in that register, issue a non-
payment certificate to the cheque drawing D.D.O. in the following form:—
"Certified that cheque No.————dated——for Rs.—————reported by (the drawing officer) to have been
drawn by him on.... .......branch of ........ bank in favour of—————has not been paid".
The cheque-drawing D.D.O. will note particulars of the non-payment certificate received by him against the
relevant entry in the office copy of the list of payments, to indicate that the original cheque has not been paid
and it has been 'stopped' from payment. A similar note will also be made by him on the counterfoil of that
cheque and office copy of the relevant paid voucher before issuing a fresh cheque in lieu thereof. Provisions
of clause (iii) of sub-rule 2 will be followed for the purpose of issue of a fresh cheque and the number and date
of the fresh cheque will also be noted on the list of payments, paid voucher and counterfoil of the old and
cancelled cheque. While the paying bank need not thus issue 'non-payment certificate', there will be no
change in their responsibilities in regard to lost cheques. All usual precautions will continue to be exercised by
them with a view to ensuring that a cheque in respect of which 'stop' advice has been received, is not
subsequently paid.
(4) If it is found afterwards, that the original cheque had been paid, the Pay and Accounts Officer will take up
the matter with the paying branch telegraphically and stop payment of the renewed cheque if not already paid.
He will also reverse the entries made in the relevant record (including counterfoils) on this account on receipt
of confirmation of this fact from the paying branch. In case the renewed cheque is reported to have been paid
by then, he will place the paid amount under the head of account "858-Suspense Accounts-Suspense Account
(Civil)-cheques cancelled but paid" till the matter is investigated and the amount is recovered or written off.
The paid cheque will also be removed from the payment scroll and kept in the personal custody of the Pay
and Accounts Office till then. In case the fact of such payment is noticed by the drawing and disbursing officer,
he will report the matter immediately to the paying branch and inform the Pay and Accounts Officer
accordingly by a telegram for further action.
49. Date of payment.—
(1) For the purpose of this rule, payment realised by the payee by encashing a cheque revalidated in terms of
sub-rule (1) of rule 46 or a fresh cheque obtained in terms of sub-rule (1) of rule 48 shall be treated as
payment realised by encashing the original cheque. Without prejudice to the provisions of rule 190 of the
General Financial Rules 1963, the date of payment when payment is made by a cheque of the type referred to
in clause (a) of sub-rule (3) of rule 44 will be reckoned as—
(i) the cheque is handed over to the payee or to his authorised messenger,
(a) the bank's working day next to the date of the cheque if the cheque does not
bear superscription in terms of Note 2 or
(b) the specific date superscribed in terms of Note 2 on the cheque, as the case
may be; or
(ii) if it is posted to the payee in pursuance of a request for sending it by post, the date on which

the cover containing it is put into the post or the date under sub-clause (b) of clause (i),
whichever is later.
(2) Wherever payment is arranged by means of a bank draft to a payee located at a station different from that
of the authority competent to draw relevant cheque (against which the draft is purchased), the date of payment
will be reckoned as—
(i) date on which it is handed over to the payee or his authorised agent (presuming that no
undue delay is caused by the payee in this regard) or the specific date superscribed in terms of
Note 2, if the latter date is later; or
(ii) if it is posted to the payee, the date on which the cover containing it is put into the post or the
said specific date whichever is later, as the case may be.
NOTE 1.—Payment made by Government by postal money order or by any other recognised mode of remitting
money by post shall be reckoned as having been made on the date on which the receipt for the money is issued
by the post office.
NOTE 2.—The superscription "payable on or after. .. ." (specific date of payment to be indicated in the blank
space) may be recorded on cheques wherever necessary. The superscription should invariably be affixed with a
rubber stamp in bold letters just below the date of issue of the cheque. The contemplated due date of payment
should preferably be written in red ink. In the case of a bank draft also, similar superscription could be got
endorsed by the bank.
(3) Cases of payment of Rs. 1 crore and above to a public sector undertaking/ Government aided institution,
have to be authorised by the concerned PAO at New Delhi through the Reserve Bank of India, New Delhi,
which will afford credit to the bank (current) account of the beneficiary by affording contra-debit to the
Ministry's/ Department's account with the Reserve Bank. The date of payment in such cases will be the date
indicated against the relevant entry in the payment scroll rendered by the Reserve Bank.
50. Letters of Credit against assignment accounts, etc.--
(l) The Accounts Officer concerned shall communicate to the relevant branch of the accredited bank, the
amount of quarterly assignment authorised in favour of cheque drawing D.D.O.s rendering account to him. A
fresh letter of credit, issued after expiry of the period prescribed in the earlier letter of credit will be treated as
an addition to the unspent balance of the earlier letter of credit. The Pay and Accounts Officers, while
communicating the assignment for the second and subsequent quarters should indicate not only the amount
assigned for that quarter, but also the progressive total of alignment upto the end of the quarter so that the
bank is able to ensure that the total cumulative drawals from the beginning of the year do not exceed the total
progressive assignments. However, the assignment remaining unspent as at the end of a financial year is not
to be carried forward to the first quarter of the next financial year. The paying branch is responsible to ensure
that at no time the amount assigned in the letter of credit is exceeded by the payment of any cheque. The
cheques actually issued during the last quarter but presented for payment during the next quarter (within the
period of validity) will be taken by the bank against the assignment of the year in which they were drawn and
not against the assignment of the year in which they are paid.
(2) A drawing officer in whose favour an assignment account has been opened in the accredited bank, is not
permitted to draw the whole amount and place it in a separate account in the bank or in a private account.
NOTE.—It is not also permissible to draw cheques and deposit the amount in the department's cash chest at the
end of the year for the purpose of showing the full amount of the grant as utilised.
51. Specimen signatures and other safeguards.—
(1) Every Government officer who is authorised to (i) sign or countersign bills shall send a specimen of his
signatures to his Accounts Officer through some superior officer or predecessor whose specimen signature is
already with the Accounts Officer and (ii) draw cheques, shall send specimen of his signatures similarly to the
branch bank concerned (and also to the Accounts Officer in cases where the officer is cheque-drawing

D.D.O.). When such an officer makes over charge of his office to another, he shall likewise send a specimen
of the signature of the relieving officer to the Accounts Officer and bank concerned.
(2) Specimen signatures when forwarded on a sheet of paper, other than the forwarding letter itself, must be
duly attested by the officer signing the forwarding letter.
NOTE.—The Mint Masters are exempted from circulating the specimen signature of their officers issuing Mint
Out-turn Certificates payable at the bank.
52. Comparison of signature with the specimen, etc.—
(i) With regard to claims presented, the signature of the drawing officer shall be compared carefully with his
specimen signature received under rule 51 before payment is ordered.
NOTE.—Specimen signatures received should be carefully pasted in guard files which must be kept in the
personal custody of the Accounts Officer and cheque drawing D.D.O.
(2) Special precautions must be taken as regards all bills and documents showing signs of alteration and if
such documents be frequently received from any office, the attention of the Head of the Office shall be
formally drawn to the irregularity.
(3) No document bearing an erasure can be accepted and payment on such documents shall be refused and
a fresh document called for.
53. Special seal to be affixed on payment authorities.—
All orders and authorities for payment wherever required to be issued from one Accounts Office on another
(e.g. Pension Payment authority) will be stamped with a special seal, which will remain in the personal custody
of the officer signing them, and specimen impression of the seal duly attested will be supplied to all Accounts
Officers concerned.
NOTE.—The provisions of this rule are not applicable to payment orders issued by or upon Defence Accounts
Officers.
54. Payment by postal money order.
(1) In case in which money due by the Government is paid by Postal Money Order, the cost of remittance
shall, in the absence of any special rule or order to the contrary, be borne by the payee.
(2) Wherever money is withdrawn by departmental officers under these rules, from Government Account for
payment, such as to a refundee in cash, and the claimant does not receive it (or arrange to receive it) within a
month from the date of drawal in spite of intimation thereof, and where individual payments are of value upto
Rs. 100, the money may be remitted to the payee by postal money order irrespective of whether a request to
this effect has been received from the payee or not.
55. Rules applicable to officers in charge of Military Treasure chest etc. in dealing with
claims.—
Unless there be anything repugnant in the subject or context, and subject to such variation or modification as
may be authorised by departmental regulations, the rules contained in Rules 177 to 204 of the Treasury Rules
of the Central Government shall be followed generally by officers-in-charge of Military Treasures chests, and
offices of the Posts and Telegraphs department mentioned in rule 4, in dealing with claims against the
Government that may be presented to them for disbursement.
56. Vouchers for payment.—

Subject as hereinafter provided in this rule, a Government officer entrusted with the payment of money shall
obtain for every payment he makes, including repayment of sums previously lodged with the Government, a
voucher setting forth full and clear particulars of the claim and all information necessary for its proper
classification and identification in the accounts. Every voucher must bear, or have attached to it, an
acknowledgement of the payment signed by the person by whom or on whose behalf the claim is put forward.
The acknowledgement shall be taken at the time of payment.
NOTE 1.—As adjustment bills for 'Nil' amount involve no payment, it is not necessary to insist upon any
acknowledgement of payment in respect of such bills.
NOTE 2.—A single receipt, stamped where necessary, given by a payee in acknowledgement of several
payments or a lump sum payment, either in cash or by cheque, made to him on one occasion, shall constitute a
valid quittance and the disbursing officer, in such cases, should give cross reference on all vouchers to which the
receipt relates.
57. Certificate of payment in certain circumstances.—
In all cases in which it is not possible or expedient to support a payment by worker or by the payee's receipt, a
certificate of payment duly signed by the disbursing officer and counter-signed by his superior officer, together
with a memorandum explaining the circumstances, should invariably be placed on record and submitted to the
Accounts Officer where necessary. Full particulars of the claims should invariably be set forth; and where this
necessitates the use of a regular bill form, the certificate itself may be recorded thereon.
NOTE 1.—In case of articles received by value payable post, the value payable cover together with the invoice or
bill showing the details of the items paid for, may be accepted as a voucher. The disbursing officer should
endorse a note on the cover to the effect that the payment was made through the Post Office and this also
covers charges for the money order commission.
NOTE 2.—A certified copy, marked 'duplicate', of a receipted voucher may be retained by the disbursing officer,
should this be necessary to complete the record of his office, but the payee should not be required to sign such a
copy or give a duplicate acknowledgement of the payment.
58. Scrutiny of claims presented to a departmental office.—
The provisions of rules 33 and 37 regarding the preparation of bills and giving of stamped receipts shall be
carefully observed in regard to claims presented at a departmental office of disbursement.
NOTE.—Cash memoranda which do not contain an acknowledgement of the receipt of money from persons
named therein are not receipt within the meaning of clause (23) of section 2 of the Indian Stamp Act, 1899 (2 of
1899). Further, the mere writing of the purchaser's name and address on a cash memorandum for delivery
purposes does not transform it into an acknowledgement to the purchaser that the money has been paid. Cash
memoranda will not therefore, be regarded as sub-vouchers in audit unless they contain an acknowledgement of
the receipt of money from the person named therein (with stamps affixed when the amount exceeds Rs. 20)., or,
in cases where this is not practicable, they are stamped 'paid' and initialled by the drawing and disbursing officer.
The cash memoranda submitted in support of the claims for reimbursement of the cost of special medicines
purchased from the market under the Medical Attendance Rules need not, however, be stamped or bear the
supplier's acknowledgement.
59. Instructions relating to affixing pay orders, defacing of stamps affixed on
vouchers and manner of cancellation of vouchers.
(1) Every voucher must bear a pay order signed or initialled by the responsible disbursing officer, specifying
the amount payable both in words and figures. All pay orders must be signed by hand and in ink.
(2) All paid vouchers must be stamped 'paid' or so cancelled that they cannot be used a second time. Stamps
affixed to vouchers must also be Cancelled so that they may not be used again.
(3) All sub-vouchers to bills must be cancelled in such a manner that they cannot be subsequently used for
presenting fraudulent claims or other fraudulent purposes.

60. Safe custody etc., of vouchers and acquittances which are not required to be
submitted to Accounts Offices.—
(1) Vouchers and acquittances which are not required to be submitted to the Accounts Officer shall be filed
and retained carefully in the office concerned as important documents till they are destroyed under the orders
of competent authority.
(2) The provisions of rule 109, with regard to cancellation and destruction of sub-vouchers relating to
contingent expenditure shall apply generally to sub-vouchers in respect of other classes of payments, unless
they are governed by special departmental regulations or orders of the Government to the contrary.
61. Overcharges.—
Subject to such special orders as the Government may issue in any individual case, the responsibility for an
overcharge shall rest primarily with the drawer of a bill, and it is only in the event of culpable negligence on the
part of the controlling officer or of the Accounts Officer that the question of recovery from either of them may
be considered.
62. Audit objections and recoveries.—
(1) Every Government servant must attend promptly to all objections and orders communicated to him by the
Accounts Officer, Internal Check Inspecting Officer and Statutory Audit Officer.
(2) When an Accounts Officer disallows a payment as unauthorised, the disbursing officer is bound not only to
recover the amount disallowed without listening to any objection or protest but to refuse to pay it in future till
the Accounts Officer authorises the payment to be resumed.
NOTE.—If a Government servant from whom a recovery is ordered is transferred to the jurisdiction of another
disbursing officer, the orders of recovery should be passed on to that disbursing officer without delay.
(3) Recoveries may not ordinarily be made at a rate exceeding one-third of pay unless the Government
servant affected has, in receiving the excess, acted contrary to orders or without due justification or taken an
advance for a specific purpose, not utilised it for the purpose (for which the advance was sanctioned) within
the prescribed period, and failed to refund the outstanding amount within the stipulated date.

66. Form and preparation of pay and travelling allowance bills.—
(1) Bills for pay, fixed allowances (including permanent travelling allowance, conveyance allowance) and leave
salary shall be prepared in Form G.A.R. 13. Departments which are using data writing machines, such as the
Bradma machine for the preparation of pay bills shall substitute inner pages of Form G.A.R. 13. with pages in
Form GAR 13A. Bills for travelling allowance, other than permanent or fixed allowances shall be presented in
Form G.A.R. 14, along with the claims in Form 14A, 14B or 14C as the case may be.

(ii) personnel to whom salary is payable individually by cheques and
(iii) group 'D' employees.
Each of the bills may be prepared by including both permanent and temporary establishments, and divided
into separate sections comprising the establishments and indicating the description of each section
prominently, along with sanctioned number of posts included therein. (In the case of large establishments,
separate bills may be prepared for different sections, if administratively found convenient). While for

permanent posts the sanctioned strength need only be indicated at the top of each section of posts, in the
case of temporary posts, the number and date of the sanction letter shall also be indicated. In cases where
sanction for continuance of posts has been applied, for, the drawing and disbursing officer shall indicate this
fact in the bill and draw pay and allowances of the persons concerned at earlier rates. Except as provided in
sub-rule (4), the name of every incumbent shall be shown against each post and the rates of pay and
allowances claimed for each shall also be shown. When pay and allowances are drawn for a portion of a
month only, the actual period for which these payments are claimed shall be mentioned against the concerned
Government servant in the body of the bill. The other instructions printed on the form of the bill should also be
carefully followed.
(3) Entries in all the money columns of the bill shall be totalled separately under each section and part; and
the totals written in red ink. The totals must be checked by the drawing officer himself or by some responsible
person other than the person preparing the bill.
(4) (a) Names of non-gazetted Government servants of the following categories shall be omitted:
(i) all persons in Central Services Group D;
(ii) all head constables and constables.
(b) The Government may, in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor-General, extend the provisions of
this rule to other specified classes of establishments where entry of names in the pay bills is not essential for
pre-check or audit purposes or both:
Provided that in all such cases a certificate in the following form shall be endorsed on the bill, namely:—
"Certified that all persons whose names are omitted from, but whose pay has been drawn in this
bill, have actually been employed during the month, that full details of the emoluments drawn for
them working up to the total included in this bill have been duly shown in the Pay Bill Register
and that the emoluments drawn are according to the relevant rules and orders".
(c) The claims of Government servants whose names are omitted under the provisions of this rule shall not be
lumped together and entered as a single item in the bills but the bills must show separately the number of
employees on different rates of pay or with different designations.
NOTE—A Pay Bill Register in Form G.A.R. 17 and abstract of Pay Bill in Form G.A.R. 18 shall be maintained, the
former being in the form of a ledger for recording the dues payable and deductions made in respect of each claim
for pay and allowances of a Government servant and the latter being an abstract of pay and allowance bills
presented for payment. No office copy of a regular monthly pay and allowances bill need be maintained, but a Bill
check register in Form G.A.R. 19 shall be maintained, which will be made use of in preparing the sectionwise
acquittance rolls in large establishments where pay is disbursed through Section Supervisors. In small
establishment where pay is disbursed directly by the cashier, this register is not required, but net total can be
copied out on acquittance roll from each bill.
67. Absentee statement.—
The monthly bill shall be supported by an absentee statement in Form G.A.R. 20 if a Government servant,
other than that belonging to any of the categories covered by sub-rule (4) of rule 66 was absent during the
month either on special duty or suspension, or with or without leave other than casual leave, or when a post is
left vacant substantively. This statement is required to be submitted only in respect of long leave chains/ spells
and other long-term vacancies caused due to death, suspension, transfer, deputation etc. against which either
postings or officiating arrangements are made.
68. Increment Certificate.—
(1) To the first bill in which a periodical increment is drawn for a Government servant, a certificate in Form
GAR 21 shall be appended. In the case of Government servants whose names are omitted from pay bill under
sub-rule (4) of rule 66, such certificates need not be so attached to the pay bills but should be made available

for test check during local audit.
(2) Of the two alternative certificates printed in Form GAR 21, the former may be, used in any case in which
the increment becomes due to the Government servant concerned for having been incumbent of the post
specified for the prescribed term counting from the date of the last increment or of appointment to the post,
excluding periods such as of absence from duty not counting for increment and absence on extraordinary
leave, and if he has held a post in an officiating capacity, or if the post held by him substantively was a
temporary post, kinds of leave which are shown in the tabular portion of the certificate. In all other cases, the
second alternative form of certificate shall be used and it shall be supported by an explanatory memorandum
showing briefly but clearly the grounds on which the increment is claimed.

specified therein from the relevant bill in which pay is drawn. After the recovery is made, one copy of the
demand statement shall be returned to the authority from which it was received after noting the amount (s)
recovered and recording a certificate to the effect that the recovery is in order and has been made and that the
emoluments are correct.
(2) If the licence fee recoverable from a Govt. servant is limited to a certain percentage of his emoluments, the
particulars of such emoluments shall be noted in the remarks column of the demand statement before its
return. If, after the return of the demand statement, the emoluments of the Government servant are changed
retrospectively, such changes shall either be shown in the next demand statement or intimated to the authority
concerned by a special letter.

(i) the recovery of licence fee from Government servants of the Central Government in respect of
buildings belonging to a State may be made in accordance with such procedure as may be

together with, licence fee for building proper.
(5) The procedure under sub-rules (1) to (4) shall not apply to the General Pool accommodation under the
Control of Director of Estates. The Directorate of Estates, including its Regional offices, issue standing

amount recovered and other relevant details if any.
(6) In cases where any general pool accommodation is allotted to Officers whose pay and allowances are
drawn from other than Central Government's Civil Estimates i.e. Posts and Telegraphs, Railways, Defence or

passed the order of insolvency or the Receiver appointed by the Court. The amounts which have been under
attachment in execution of the decree against the insolvent shall also, after the order of insolvency, vest in
such Court or the Receiver, and the attached amounts in such cases, instead of being sent to the various
courts which issued the orders of attachment, should be sent to the Insolvency Court or the Receiver for pro
rata distribution among all the creditors of the insolvent Government servant.

salary is payable in cash, there is no need of any break up to be shown in the pay bill, but this
may be done distinctly in the acquittance roll (Form GAR 24).

other event necessitating the discontinuance of such payments.

allows his pay to remain undisbursed in order to evade payment on account of an attachment
order issued by a Court of law, the head of the office may draw the pay of the judgment-debtor in
satisfaction of the attachment order, subject to the prescribed restrictions, and remit the amount
to the court concerned.

receipt for the amounts shall be filed with the attachment register or such other suitable record
as, may he kept by the drawing officer.

Government from time to time.
(2) A drawing and disbursing officer, even when not located within the territorial limits to which any of the
above mentioned Acts applies, may effect recoveries on account of profession tax or dues of a co-operative
society from the salary payable to a Government servant, provided that such Government servant, in the case
of dues of Co-operative societies, authorises the disbursing officer in writing, to effect such recoveries and the

previously hold any post under the Government or is re-employed after resignation or forfeiture of past
service, a certificate by the drawing and disbursing officer to the effect that the medical certificate of fitness in
the prescribed form has been obtained in respect of the Government servant must accompany the bill in
conformity with and if so required, by any rule or order governing the conditions of the service to which he
belongs. Where the competent authority under any rule or order authorises the drawal of pay and allowances
of a newly appointed Government servant for a period not exceeding two months without a medical certificate
of fitness, a certificate to this effect shall be, furnished in the first pay bill. If a pensioner is re-employed, the
fact shall be stated in the bill.

shall be charged to office contingencies.

allowed by the Government to an individual Government servant, or class of Government servants for drawing
a part of their pay at places other than their headquarters.
83. Drawal of arrears pertaining to a post held previously.—
The pay and allowances due in respect of the old post (on account of a refixation of pay and allowances)

sent to that of the earlier office or parent office as the case may be, for verification of the claim. The earlier
office or parent office may check these documents, make entries in their records and return to the concerned
drawing officer with a certificate that the arrears relating to the Government servant have been noted in the
relevant office copies of the bills. On receipt of the 'Due and Drawn Statement' duly vetted, the arrear bill may
be drawn. If inter-departmental adjustment is required in regard to the arrears, the concerned office shall
record the classification and acceptance of the debit.

office for keeping necessary note in the pay bill register. He may check the details of payments authorised by the
new D.D.O. and in case any discrepancy/overpayment is noticed, he may intimate it to the new D.D.O. for
recovery from the Government servant. The previous D.D.O. shall send a confirmation to the present D.D.O.
about his having kept a note of the payment of arrears in the pay bill register. The new D.D.O. shall watch the
receipt of such a confirmation from the previous D.D.O. and shall make a note to this effect in the pay bill
register.

foot thereof should invariably be signed by the disbursing officer in token of the total amount actually paid. The
'PAID' stamp, duly attested by the drawing officer, need be affixed only against the total disbursed amount of the
acquittance roll. In respect of undisbursed amount paid subsequently, the items should be stamped 'PAID'
individually and attested by the drawing officer while signing the Cash Book.
NOTE: 2 —Cash drawn on pay and travelling allowance bills should not be mixed with regular cash balance of the
department, if any. An account of undisbursed pay and allowance, should be kept in a Register in Form GAR 25.
Entries of the total and particular amount of undisbursed pay and allowances may be made against each bill
serially and subsequent payment thereof entered in the appropriate columns of the Register and the Cash Book,
each such entry being attested by a Gazetted Officer. From this register, an abstract of amounts remaining
undisbursed for three months should be prepared to ensure their refund either in cash or by short drawal from
the next bill.
93. Last payment of pay and allowances
Normally, the last payment of pay or allowances in respect of a Government servant who finally quits service
of the Government or who is placed under suspension may be made only after the Head of Office satisfies
himself, by reference to his own records and to other appropriate authorities where necessary, that there are
no demands outstanding against the Government servant. However, in case, where security for an amount

considered by the said Head of Office to be adequate to cover the aforesaid demands is taken from such
Government servant, in cash, or by a surety bond, or by with-holding a part of the gratuity payable to the
Government servant, the last payment of pay and allowances may be made and the last pay certificate issued,
even if the likely dues from such Government servant remain to be assessed and realised.
Exception.—The disbursement of pay and allowances in lieu of notice period under the provisions of rule 56 (j) of
the Fundamental Rules or rule 48 of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, shall be governed by special
instructions issued by the Government in this behalf.
NOTE:—The above provisions apply mutatis mutandis to payment of final dues or honorarium to (i) contract
officers and officers purely in the temporary employment of the Government, proceeding on foreign service in or
out of India, and (ii) non-officials including members of any Commission or Committee whether statutory or not,
on their termination of service with the Commission, or Committee.
94. Death of payee.—
Pay and allowances can be drawn for the day of the Government servant's death; the hour at which death
takes place has no effect on the claim.
NOTE:—'Day' for the purpose of this rule should mean a calendar day beginning and ending at midnight.
95. Arrears payable after death.—
{Refer Correction Slip 18 and Correction Slip 16}
(1) Subject to the provisions of rule 93, pay and allowances of all kinds claimed on behalf of a deceased
Government servant may be paid without production of usual legal authority, under the orders of the Head of
office in which the Government servant was employed at the time of of his death, provided the Head of office
is otherwise satisfied about the right of the claimant.
In cases where the gross amount of the claim exceeds Rs.10,000, payment will be made by the Head of
Office only on the execution of an indemnity bond in Form GAR 26 duly stamped for the gross amount due for
payment with such sureties as may be deemed necessary.
Provided that the Head of office may, subject to the condition prescribed in para 1, make anticipatory payment
of an amount not exceeding Rs.10,000.
NOTE 1.—Normally, there should be two sureties, both of known financial stability unless the gross amount of
the claim is less than Rs.10,000 in which case the authority accepting the indemnity bond in Form G.A.R. 26 for
and on behalf of the President should decade on the merits of each case, whether to accept only one surety
instead of two.
NOTE 2.—The obliger as well as the sureties executing the indemnity bond should have attained majority so that
the bond may have legal effect or force. The bond is also required to be accepted on behalf of the President by
an officer duly authorised under clause (1) of article 299 of the Constitution.
(2) In case of any doubt, payment shall be made only to the person (s) producing the legal authority.
(3) On receipt of the claim for payment of arrears of pay and allowances of all kinds (including travelling
allowance claims) on behalf of a deceased Government servant from his heir (s), the Head of the Office in
which the Government servant was last employed should draw the amount in the appropriate bill form. The
claim should be supported by, all the relevant certificates which the Head of Office is required to furnish in the
normal circumstances. However, in respect of the certificates which solely depend on the personal knowledge
of the deceased Government servant and which obviously cannot be furnished by the Head of Office, the
Head of Office should record if he is satisfied about the correctness of the claim, and furnish a certificate to the
effect that, "the claim, is not susceptible of verification but is considered reasonable". The amount should be
disbursed to the claimant by the Head of the Office by following the procedure laid down in sub-rule (1). A
formal receipt, stamped where necessary, should be obtained from the claimant.

NOTE.—The procedure prescribed in this rule shall apply to any claim for payment of dues or honorarium
payable to deceased non-officials, including deceased non-official members of any Commission or Committee
whether statutory or not

PART III
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNT
SECTION III—CONTINGENT CHARGES
96. Meaning of the term.—
The term '"contingent charges" or "contingencies'' used in this Section means and includes all incidental and
other expenses (including on stores) which are incurred for the management of an office as an office or for the
working of technical establishment such as laboratory, workshop, industrial installation, store depot and the
like but other than expenditure which has been specifically classified as falling under some other head of
expenditure e.g., 'works', 'tools and plant'.
97. Application.—
(1) The rules of procedure prescribed in this Section shall apply primarily to contingencies, but miscellaneous
expenditure which is not classed as contingencies is also subject to these rules, except in so far as it may be
governed by any special rules of procedure prescribed in Section IV of this Part or by any departmental
regulations.
(2) The provisions of this Section shall apply primarily to contingent charges of Heads of Offices of Civil
Ministries or Departments. Contingent charges of other departments, such as Posts and Telegraphs, Defence
and Railways are also subject to the rules in this Section, except in so far as they are supplemented or
modified by their authorised departmental regulations.
98. Types of contingent charges.—
Contingent charges incurred on the public service are divided into the following types, the types adopted in
each department or office being determined by orders of competent authority—
(i) Contract contingencies.—those for which a lump sum is placed annually at the disposal of a
disbursing officer for expenditure without further sanction of any kind. They generally consist of
charges, the annual incidence of which can be averaged with reasonable accuracy.
(ii) Scale-regulated contingencies—to comprise such contingent charges as may be regulated by
scales laid down by competent authority, such as rewards for destruction of wild animals.
(iii) Special contingencies—to include such contingent charges, whether recurring or non-
recurring, as cannot be incurred without the previous sanction of superior authority.
(iv) Countersigned contingencies—to include such contingent charges as may require approval
of some controlling authority before they can be admitted as legitimate expenditure against the
Government, such approval usually taking the form of countersignature after payment on a
detailed bill submitted to the Pay and Accounts Officer.
(v) Fully vouched contingencies—to comprise contingent charges, which require neither special
sanction nor countersignature, but may be incurred by the Head of Office on his own authority
subject to the necessity of accounting for them. These may be passed on fully vouched bills
without counter-signature.
NOTE.— The five types of contingencies set forth above are not necessarily mutually exclusive. There may be
cases in which special contingencies may be regulated by scales, or in which a bill scale-regulated contingencies
may require counter-signature. When a contingent charge falls within two or more types, the procedure
prescribed in rules 113 to 122 for each of these types shall, as far as possible, be applied.

99. Payment of contingent expenditure out of permanent advances, etc.—
Government officers who have to make payments for contingent expenditure before they can place
themselves in funds by drawing contingent bills, may make such payments out of permanent advances or
imprests which they may be permitted to hold under the orders of competent authority (issued in accordance
with the provisions of rule 90 of the General Financial Rules, 1963), subject to recoupment on presentation of
contingent bill. All such claims upto Rs.2,000 may be disbursed out of permanent advance or imprest. {Refer
Correction Slip 25} and {Refer Correction Slip 14}
NOTE.—The monetary limit will not apply in regard to claims relating to Telephone, Electricity and Water bills in
the case of a non-cheque drawing DDO stationed at a place different from that at which the accredited Pay and
Accounts Officer or cheque drawing DDO authorised to pay his contingent bills, as the case may be, is located.
100. General Limitations.—
(1) All charges actually incurred must be paid and drawn at once, and under no circumstances they may be
allowed to stand over to be paid from the grant of another year. The charges relating to two or more major
heads may not be included in one bill.
(2) No money shall be drawn from Government Account unless it is required for immediate disbursement. It is
not permissible to draw money from Government Account in anticipation of demands or to prevent the lapse of
budget grants.
(3) Save as hereinafter provided in sub-rule (4), no pay of any kind and no additions to pay may be drawn on
bills for contingent expenditure.
(4) (a) Subject to any general or special orders issued by the Government, the pay of Group D servants, by
whatever designation they may be called, who have been or may be, declared by competent authority to be
ineligible for pensions and who discharge the duties of the classes mentioned below, may be treated as
contingent expenditure:—
(i) Hot weather establishments;
(ii) Mazdoors engaged on manual labour and paid daily or monthly wages;
(iii) Sweepers;
(iv) Other clashes of Group D servants like dhobies, tailors, syces, grass-cutters.
(b) The wages of temporary field establishments of Surveys and Settlements and of extra potdars entertained
for accompanying remittances, may also be drawn on contingent bills.
101. Certificates relating to certain types of contingent charges.—
(1) Contingent charges incurred on account of the wages of mazdoors engaged on manual labour and paid at
daily or monthly rates shall be supported by certificate signed by the disbursing officer to the effect that the
mazdoors were actually entertained and paid.
(2) Contingent bills for claims relating to rents, rates, taxes, electricity and water and other connected charges
incurred on account of the hire of private buildings by Government for accommodation of Government offices
should be accompanied by either of the two following certificates to be signed by the Drawing Officer:
(a) no portion of the building for which the expenditure was incurred, was utilised for residential
or other purposes during the period to which the charges relate; or

(b) the share of expenditure required to be recovered for the portion of the building used for
residential or other purposes during the period for which the charges were paid, has been
recovered as indicated against each, from the undermentioned persons from whom it was due.
102. Certificate in support of stores purchase bills.—
If not provided otherwise by departmental regulations, bills presented in support of payments for purchase of
stores shall be accompanied by a certificate that the articles detailed in the vouchers, and their quantities are
correct, their quality good and according to specifications, that the rates paid are not in excess of accepted or
market rates, and that suitable notes of payment have been made in the indents, supply orders and invoices
concerned to prevent double payment. The authority, unless it is a general one, under which the purchase is
made, shall also be quoted.
103. Contingent items purchased through Directorate General, Supply and
Disposals.—
Provisions of rule 127 shall be applicable to purchase of contingent items through Directorate General,
Supplies and Disposals.
104. Certificate in support of contingent bills which include sales tax charges.—
Contingent bills which include charges on account of purchase of goods on which sales tax has also been
charged, should be supported by the following certificates signed by the disbursing officer:—
"Certified that in the case of sub-vouchers attached to the bill and those retained in my office
relating to the purchase of goods on which sales tax has been charged, the goods have not
been exempted under the Central Sales Tax Act or the rules made thereunder and that the
amounts paid on account of Sales Tax on those goods are correct under the provisions of that
Act or the rules made thereunder, and that in the case of supplies against regular contracts, the
relevant contract includes a specific provision that Sales Tax is payable by Government."

entertained in Government service during the period concerned."
(b) "Certified that the rates of pay and dearness allowances of part-time and casual employees
drawn in this bill have been fixed in accordance with the orders of the Government of India
presently in force."

107. Responsibility of drawing officers.—
Every Government officer shall exercise the same vigilance in respect of contingent expenses as a person of
ordinary prudence may be expected to exercise in spending his own money. The drawing officer is further
responsible for seeing that the rules regarding the preparation of bills are observed, that the money is either
required for immediate disbursement or has already been paid from the permanent advance, that the
expenditure is within the available appropriation and that all steps have been taken with a view to obtaining an
additional appropriation if the original appropriation has either been exceeded or is likely to be exceeded, and
that in the case of contract contingencies. the proposed expenditure does not cause any excess over the
contract grant.
108. Responsibility of controlling authority.—
The countersigning officer shall be responsible for seeing that the items of expenditure included in a
contingent bill are of obvious necessity and are at fair and reasonable rates, that previous sanction for any
item requiring it is attached, that the requisite vouchers are all received and are in order, that the calculations
are correct, and specially that the grants have not been exceeded nor are they likely to be exceeded and that
the Accounts Officer has been informed either by a note on the bill or otherwise of the reason for any excess
over the monthly proportion of the appropriation. If expenditure be progressing too rapidly, he shall
communicate with the drawing officer and insist on its being checked.
109. Cancellation and destruction of sub-vouchers.—
The following rules for the prevention of the fraudulent use of sub-vouchers shall be observed by all drawing
and controlling officers in the matter of cancellation and destruction of sub-vouchers:
(i) Unless in any case it is distinctly provided otherwise by any rule or order, no sub-vouchers
may be destroyed until after a lapse of three years.
(ii) Every sub-voucher which under the provisions of rules 111 (sub-rule 3), 113, 119 and 120 is
not forwarded either to the Accounts Officer or to a controlling officer along with bills but is
recorded in the office to which the expenditure relates, must be duly cancelled by means of a
rubber stamp or by an endorsement in red ink across the voucher, the cancellation being
initialled by the officer authorised to draw the contingent bills of the office. The cancellation
should be made at the time when the contingent bill in which the sub-vouchers are included is
actually signed. If the amount of the sub-voucher exceeds the permanent advance, the
cancellation should be made as soon as the payment is made and entered in the contingent
register.
(iii) Sub-vouchers submitted to a controlling officer which he is not required to forward to the
Accounts Officer should be duly cancelled by him after check and the cancellation should be
attested by the controlling officer at the time of countersignature on the bill.
(iv) In all cases in which sub-vouchers are not required to be submitted to the Accounts Officer
or the controlling officer, the drawing officer should certify in the bill that sub-vouchers other than
those attached to the bill have been so defaced or mutilated that they cannot be used again. A
similar certificate should be furnished by the Controlling authority in respect of sub-vouchers
submitted to him by the drawing officer but which he is not required to submit to the Accounts
Officer.
NOTE.—Sub-vouchers which are required to be sent to the Accounts Officer should not be cancelled either by the
drawing officer or by the controlling officer, as the duty of cancelling these sub-vouchers and keeping them in
proper custody to prevent their fraudulent use devolves on the Accounts Officer.
110. Contingent register.—

(1) A register of contingent expenditure shall be kept in each office and the initials of the Head of the Office, or
of a gazetted officer to whom this duty has been delegated by the Head of the Office, shall be entered against
the date of payment of each item.
(2) The standard form of the contingent register will be as in Form G.A.R. 27. The actual details such as the
number of columns to be opened, the subheads and detailed heads and such further detailed classification as
may be required for the purpose of control, may be settled by the Accounts Officer and the controlling
authority to suit the conditions of each department or office.
(3) As a general rule, the most common sub-heads and detailed heads may have separate columns with
appropriations noted at the top. The less important and trival items may be lumped together in one column
when each of the separate items need not be accounted for or watched separately. Any charge falling under
any of the separate columns but requiring explanation may be described in the column "Description" though
the amount of it is entered only in its special column; the same "Description" column will serve also for note of
the month or period to which any recurring charges entered in the other columns belong.
NOTE 1.—If more convenient, a separate register may be maintained for each class of contingent charges.
NOTE 2.—If during the absence of the Head of the Office and of the gazetted officer to whom the duty of
maintenance of contingent register has been delegated, the entries in the contingent register have been initialled
by a non-gazetted Government officer, the register must be reviewed and the entries reinitialled by the Head of
the Office or such gazetted officer on return to duty at the headquarters.
(4) As each payment is made, entries must be made in the contingent register, of the date of payment, the
name of payee and the number of sub-voucher in the three columns to the left, and the amount in the proper
column, and in the case of any charge requiring explanation, the initials of the officer incurring it shall be taken
against the description.
(5) To enable the disbursing officer to watch the progress of the expenditure under each detailed head as
compared with the appropriation for it, a progressive total of all the columns must be made monthly
immediately after the monthly total so as to include all payments under each head, as also charges intimated
by Account Office as adjusted on account of debit received from the commencement of the year upto the end
of the last expired month.
111. General instructions relating to bills, for drawal of contingent charges.—
(1) When it is necessary to draw money for contingent expenses, as for example, when the permanent
advance begins to run short, or when a transfer of charge takes place and in any case, at the end of each
month, a red ink line shall be ruled across the page of the register or registers, the several columns added up
and several totals posted in separate bills for each class of contingent expenditure. The Head of the Office or
the officer to whom this duty has been delegated shall carefully scrutinise the entries in the register (s) with the
sub-vouchers, initial them if this has not already been done, and sign the bill which will then be dated and
numbered and presented for payment.
(2) The heads of contingent expenditure may be entered in manuscript in the bill and the totals posted against
them provided that in a case of expenditure requiring explanation, full details of the charges must be entered
in the bill except when they are given in the sub-vouchers sent to the Accounts Officer.
(3) Unless the Controller General of Accounts on the advice of the Comptroller and Auditor General directs
otherwise, sub-vouchers for more than Rs.500 each shall be submitted to the Accounts Office in respect of
contingent charges referred to in rules 114 and 115. {Refer to Correction Slip 21}
NOTE 1.—In respect of petty contingent expenditure upto Rs.500, if any, for which original sub-vouchers are not
required to be attached to bills, the items should, however, be listed out in Form GAR 28 to be attached to them.
NOTE 2.—When the permanent advance is running short, a demand may be presented in excess of the balance;
this item too should be entered in the register and included in the bill, the number given being that which the

sub-voucher (s) will bear when payment is made.
112. Certificate in support of payment to payees whose names cannot he disclosed.—
When in paying rewards to informers, or in any other case, it is not desirable to disclose the names of payees,
a certificate in the handwriting of the disbursing officer to the effect that the payment has been duly made shall
be submitted to the Accounts Officer in support of the payment in lieu of the payee's receipt ordinarily
required.
113. Contract contingencies.—
In respect of contract contingencies, the bill shall be presented in a form similar to Form G.A.R. 29. No sub-
vouchers need be sent to the Accounts Officer.
114. Fully vouched contingent charges-and special provisions relating to telephone,
electricity and water charges.—
Contingent bills, of officers which do not require countersignature may be drawn by presenting bills in Form
G.A.R. 29 showing full details of the charges and supported by sub-vouchers.
Provided that in case any officer has to embody in his bill, charges of any subordinate officer who normally
draws money by presenting his bills directly to the Pay and Accounts Officer or under his cheque-drawing
powers, the countersigning officer must submit monthly bills in the manner stipulated in rule 119 in adjustment
of the abstract bills cashed by himself or his subordinates.
NOTE 1.—The proviso is intended to cover cases where a Head of Department or Controlling Officer has to
submit after counter-signature, monthly detailed bills to the concerned Accounts Officer, in adjustment of the
abstract bills cashed by himself and his subordinates under the provisions of rule 117.
NOTE 2.—In cases (other than those of a non-cheque drawing D.D.O. situated at a place different from that of
the accredited Pay and Accounts Office or cheque-drawing D.D.O. authorised to pay the contingent bills, as the
case may be) where payments of telephone, electricity and water charges are generally more than the monetary
limit prescribed in rule 99 and which cannot, therefore, be paid out of the permanent advance, funds required for
making only these three types of contingent payments may be drawn on fully-vouched contingent bills (GAR 29)
under the provisions of this rules, attaching thereto a duplicate copy of the demand bill received, as sub-voucher.
For such payments, wherever only one copy of the demand bill is received from the Telephone Department or
State Electricity Board or local body and the payments are made only by cheque, funds required may be similarly
obtained by attaching photostat copy of the demand bill (duly attested in regard of amount) which will serve as a
sub-voucher in support of relevant contingent bill as a special case. This special provision shall not, however, be
extended to any other type of cases; or even to the three instant types if the payment accrues to a private party.
In the case of telephone bills, 'Government Account' category cheques shall be drawn. Cheques, in others cases,
shall be crossed 'A/C Payee only'. Stamped receipt or receipt thereon, received against payment of such a bill by
cheque may be retained by the drawing and disbursing officer and will be accorded by him, the same treatment
as envisaged in rule 109 Also see 'Note' below condition (vi) under rule 90 ' of the General Financial Rules, 1963.
115. Scale regulated charges and special contingencies.—
(1) In terms of rule 97 of the General Financial Rules, 1963 an authority competent to classify an expenditure
as scale-regulated, shall prescribe the conditions precedent to the application of the scale, the certificates to
be furnished with the bill and whether such a bill shall be countersigned before or after payment. In the latter
case, such charges may be drawn in the abstract bill Form G.A.R. 30, with a full description of the charges,
and subject to presentation of the detailed bill to the Controlling Officer for countersignature and transmission
of the Accounts Officer in accordance with the procedure prescribed in rules 118 to 121.
(2) Special contingencies, which require the previous sanction of the superior authority before they can be
incurred, may be drawn either in the abstract bill Form GAR 30 with a full description of charges and subject to
presentation of detailed bill in accordance with the procedure laid down in rules 118 to 121; or in the bill Form
GAR 29 as the occasion may demand. When expenditure for which a lump sum is granted under a single
special sanction, is continued over more than one month, the second and subsequent months' bills shall bear

a note of how much has been spent up to that date, against the sanction.
116. General instructions relating to countersigned contingencies.—
Items of contingent charges requiring countersignature and list of drawing and disbursing officers Who can
draw them on abstract bills should be drawn up as laid down in Government of India's decision No. 2 under
rule 92 of the General Financial Rules, 1963.
117. Form of abstract bills, etc. pertaining to countersigned contingencies—
Except in the case of contingencies requiring countersignature before payment, contingent charges falling
under this group may be drawn by presenting abstract bills in Form GAR 30 subject to the presentation of
detailed bills to the controlling officer for countersignature and transmission to the Accounts Officer in
accordance with the procedure hereinafter prescribed.
118. Preparation of abstract bill.—
The numbers assigned to sub-vouchers (in cases of payment from permanent advance) or to credit bills or
pre-receipted bills, if any (which on payment will become sub-vouchers) pertaining to each entry in the
abstract bill shall be detailed against the entry concerned, the amount being given only in those cases where a
sub-voucher is for more than Rs. 50. A certificate shall be attached to every abstract contingent bill to the
effect that the detailed contingent bills have been submitted to the controlling officer in respect of abstract
contingent bills drawn during the month previous to that in which the bill in question is presented for payment.
On no account may an abstract contingent bill be cashed without this certificate.
119. Form and preparation of detailed bill relating to countersigned contingencies—
(1) A monthly detailed bill shall be prepared in the case of contingent charges to be countersigned after
payment, from the monthly totals of the contingent register; such detailed bill will be in Form G.A.R. 31,
headed 'Not for payment'" and will show the monthly total of each column with description of each charge
requiring explanation. The numbers assigned to the sub-vouchers shall be entered in detail against each item;
the number and date of every abstract contingent bill cashed, and the sub-vouchers included in each shall be
shown in the memorandum at foot. The amount shown in the bill must be agreed with the total of the abstract
bills cashed during the month. Differences, if any, between the total of a detailed bill and the register must be
adequately explained.
(2) The detailed bill shall be signed by the Head of the Office and submitted to the Controlling Officer, (or if
there be no controlling officer to the Accounts Officer, direct) with all sub-vouchers above Rs.50 his signature
to the certificate endorsed on the bill taking the place of the smaller ones.
NOTE.—The limit of Rs. 50 above which sub-vouchers are required to be submitted to the Controlling Officer is
subject to alteration by the Controller General of Accounts on the advice of the Comptroller and Auditor-General.
(3) If, in any month, the monthly proportion of the appropriation has been exceeded, a report of the special
circumstances which rendered the excess necessary shall be sent to the counter-signing officer with the
detailed bill.

as may be kept in the office of the Controlling Officer. The countersigning officer shall then record the date of
admission, under his initials, sign the bill and despatch it to the Accounts Officer direct with the sub-vouchers
for items for more than Rs.200 each, his signature to the certificate endorsed in the bill, taking the place of the
smaller ones.

NOTE 1.—The term 'items' refers to items of expenditure and not items of charge; for example a charge for
Rs.220 for section-writers would not require to be supported by a sub-voucher if the amount is made up of sums
paid to several individuals none of which exceed Rs.200. The limit of Rs.200 is, however, subject to alteration by
the Controller General of Accounts on the advice of Comptroller and Auditor General.
NOTE 2.—In the absence of the countersigning officer, the examination and countersignature of the bill may be
performed by some responsible gazetted officer authorised by the countersigning officer.
NOTE 3.—A register of contingent expenditure may also be kept in the office of the controlling officer in such
form and according to such method as may be titled by a Department of the Central Government in consultation
with the Accounts Officer.
NOTE 4.—The detailed bills duly signed by the controlling officer shall be sent to the Accounts Officer direct
within a month from the date of receipt of such bills in his office.
121. Disallowance by the countersigning officer.—
After despatch of the bill to the Accounts Officer, the countersigning officer shall communicate any
disallowance to the drawing officer and its amount shall without fail be refunded by short drawing in the next
contingent bill presented for payment by the same department or office. The gross amount of each sub-
voucher shall be entered in such bills, and below the total shall be entered 'Deduct disallowed from the bill
of.............Rs................', the receipt given being for the net amount only. If, after correspondence, the
countersigning officer withdraws his objection, the amount may be redrawn in the next bill by entering after the
total of sub-vouchers 'Add amount disallowed from bill of......... refunded by deduction from contingent bill
No............... dated...........and subsequently allowed as per...............'; the receipt would be for the gross
amount, and the items would be re-included in the next monthly contingent bill.
122. Contingencies requiring counter-signature before payment.—
Bill for contingent charges requiring counter signature before payment shall be drawn in Form G.A.R. 32.
123. Payment for purchase of service postage scamps.—

work of stocking or distribution or both of service stamps has not yet been taken over by the Posts and
Telegraphs Department) or State Bank of India branches which are authorised to sell stamps may be drawn or
obtained by drawing and disbursing officers from Pay and Accounts office by preferring a bill indicating the
value of postage stamps of various denominations required, and giving a certificate that the stamps will be

In this Section, the term 'Stores' is used to indicate all articles and materials required for the public service and
coming into an office's possession for various purposes which are budgetted for and classifiable under heads
of expenditure such as works, tools and plant, machinery, equipment, material and supply.
125. Application-—

Government as lapsed and was not paid previously and that the claimant's identity and title to the money are
certified by the officer countersigning the application for the refunds.

whose favour the deposit account has been opened.
(2) While the balance as a whole in a personal deposit account of the type referred to in clause (b) of sub-rule

Account) or (ii) in suitable instalments sanctioned by the Ministries or Departments as and when necessary for

physical transfer of funds from the Consolidated Fund to the personal deposit accounts will be needed, but

accredited bank indicating the amounts of credit to be reckoned as receipt towards the account'. As and when
intimations are sent to the bank, an account entry will be made by debiting the functional head under the
Consolidated Fund by affording contra credit to the Personal Deposit Account to that extent. In the former
category of cases, the balance in the account shall be allowed to be carried over to the subsequent years. But
in the latter category of cases, at the end of each financial year, based on the account Statement received

deposit account may be revived in the subsequent year again, if necessary, in the usual manner.

(ii) In cases where the fees arc divisible between the Government and the Government servant concerned—
(a) If the exact amount of the fees and the distribution of shares between the Government and
Government servant are known before hand, the share due to the Government should be
credited as miscellaneous receipt of the department to which the Government servant belongs
and the rest should be collected by the Government servant himself. The Government share
should be paid into Government Account as far as possible by the body or person paying the fee

after ascertaining the procedure therefor from the departmental authority concerned;
(b) If the amount of the fees or the shares are known only approximately, beforehand, all the
fees should in the first instance be similarly credited to Government Account, as far as possible,
by the body or person paying the fees. The receipts should be credited to the appropriate
deposit head, pending final settlement, when the share due to the Government should be
credited as miscellaneous receipt of the department to which the Government servant belongs,
and the rest should remain under the deposit head for disbursement to the Government servant
by the Head of Office who will draw the amount on a bill in ordinary pay bill form specifying
therein the authority sanctioning the payment of fees.
NOTE.—These rules are intended to be applied to cases in which the whole or a share of the fees as such is
payable to the Government servant doing work for non-Government bodies or persons. They are not applicable
to cases, e.g., fees levied for overtime work in a department where such practice is in existence, or where a
Government servant undertakes the work as a part of his official duties although in view of the extra work
involved and in consideration of the fees realised he is remunerated by a share out of these receipts. In the latter
case, the fees realised are adjustable as departmental receipts, and the disbursements to the Government
servant as departmental expenditure.
197. Other deposit accounts.—
Moneys appertaining to special deposit accounts which do not strictly fall under any of the separate classes
specified in this Part may be paid into or drawn out 'of the Government Account in accordance with such
general or special directions as may be given by the Government.
198. Power to remove difficulties.—
If any difficulty arises in giving effect to the provisions of these rules, the Government may, subject to such
restrictions and conditions, if any, as it may think fit to impose, dispense with Or relax the provisions of any of
these rules.
199. Interpretation.—
Where any doubt arises as to the interpretation of any of these rules, the matter shall be referred to the
Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure—Controller General of Accounts) for its decision.

ANNEXURE
(i) Petty cash payments for local purchases are met out of permanent cash imprest available with the Head
of office and recoupment bill duly supported by sub-vouchers (where necessary) is required to be preferred
periodically to the Pay & Accounts Office for replenishment of the imprest. As far as possible, suppliers should
be persuaded to cooperate in rounding off the amount payable to them on each occasion to the nearest
rupee. In exceptional cases where payment of paise cannot be avoided, the total of the sub-vouchers sought
to be recouped would include paise also. Nevertheless, the recoupment bill shall be submitted to the PAO for
the whole rupee portion only. However, for the purpose of balancing the transactions in the main cash books
as well as in the petty cash book, the DDO will (a) indicate the actual amount received in recoupment of the
permanent advance; (b) record therein the unrecouped paise as an item of "rounding off of transactions"; and
(c) carry it over to be claimed through the subsequent recoupment bill in which this amount was short-
received. Illustrative examples are given in performae A&B for guidance.
(ii) In the case of receipts arising out of sale of waste papers or old newspapers, periodicals, condemned
furniture etc. the amounts to be realised should be rounded to the nearest rupee and not include paise in the
sum total of transactions with any party for which a single receipt is given so that the receipts are credited into
government account in whole rupees only.
