Receipt of Government Revenue by Bank will be continued

Government of West Bengal
Finance Department
Audit Branch

No. 5157-F(Y) Dated, 2nd July, 2015


Deposit of Government Tax and Non Tax Revenue under Government Revenue receipt heads through GRIPS portal has been made mandatory with effect from 1st July 2015 vide F.D. Memo No. 4168-F(Y) dated 28th May 2015. In the meantime, information has been received from various departments of the Government that receipt of Government Revenue in the Bank counter has been stopped by some banks on the basis of Finance Department’s order mentioned hereinabove.

Since, most of the people are not aware of the procedure of deposit in GRIPS portal they are coming to the bank counter with money for deposit following the existing procedure.

Banks will continue to receive the money along with the filled up challans and account for the receipts in their respective credit scroll before transmission of the same to the Treasury/PAO attached to the Bank for the purpose until Government intimates bank to discontinue the system.

This may please be treated as very urgent.
