ORDER

During the course of visit of different DH&FWs & BH&FWs it has been noticed that most of the samities especially BH&FWs are retaining liquid cash beyond the permissible limit of Rs. 25000/-and also making cash transactions even where it is possible to make payment through bank. In many cases advances are being drawn for programmes without making proper note-sheet and budget. The amount of unadjusted advances is on the rise and there is inordinate delay in submitting adjustment. Advance registers are also not maintained properly. It may be noted that the earlier order regarding retention of liquid cash holding upto Rs. 25000/- was issued at a time when payment to JSY beneficiaries were paid in cash. Now the mode of cash payment has been dispensed with for JSY. Therefore, the necessity of holding liquid cash has been reduced substantially at present.

In most of the offices especially at block level there are no lockers/ iron safes and security guards are also not available.

For better and efficient cash management as well as for safety and security of public money the following steps are to be followed with immediate effect:-
