Memorandum

It has been observed by the Finance Department that due to heavy rush of Bills at the end of every financial year, it becomes difficult for some Treasury Officers to pass at the bills and delivery the Cheques within midnight of the last working day of March resulting in occurrence of some unpleasant situation at those treasuries due to lapses of fund. Moreover , it has been noticed that in some treasuries due to heavy pressure the cheques are being delivered to the concerned D.D.Os on the last working day of March without recording the same through computer system causing non inclusion of such payment in the Treasury Accounts.
