No. 5100-F(Y) Dated, 1st July, 2015


Receipt of Government tax and non-tax revenue under various heads of accounts of the state Government has been made mandatory wef 1.7.2015, vide FD memo. no. 4168-F(Y) dt. 28.5.15.

It has been brought to the notice of Finance Department that money deposited by stamp vendors and individuals for purchase of stamps from treasuries needs to be verified with reference to the credit scroll sent by the treasury link bank to the respective treasury before issuing stamps to the stamp vendors/ individual persons. Since receipts deposited through GRIPS are reported to and accounted for by the e-treasury at DTA, WB, there will be practical problem if such deposits are made through GRIPS.

Similarly, money deposited in the bank under heads of accounts of GPF and GISS for the employees on deputation needs to be intimated to AGWB by the concerned employees through the organisation where they are serving on deputation with copies of receipted challans and GPF and GISS schedules to account for the receipts in favour of the concerned employees.

In view of the practical problems of dealing with such receipts under GRIPS portal the Government has decided to exempt the following receipts from the purview of GRIPS.

  1. Money to be deposited for purchase of stamps from Treasuries;
  2. Deposit towards GPF subscription and GISS in bank for employees on deputation.

Some of the heads of accounts under which money is deposited for purchase of stamps have already been included in the GRIPS portal. The heads of accounts will not be withdrawn since in some cases money needs to be deposited under the same heads for purposes other than purchase of stamps from treasuries. GPF and GISS heads of accounts have not been included under GRIPS.

This exemption will take effect from 1.7.15.
