Memorandum

Sub: Restriction on Transfer of fund from Scheme Head to Bank Accounts of the Directorates, Societies, PSUs, Corporations, Statutory Bodies, Samitis, Boards/ Unnayan Parishads, etc. and providing information regarding bank accounts

It has recently been reported that funds from different scheme heads of Government Accounts as well as from the LF/ PL/ Deposit Accounts of different Departments, Directorates, Societies, PSUs, Corporations, Statutory Bodies, Samitis, Boards/ Unnayan Parishads, etc. are being transferred to the Bank Accounts of such Departments, Directorates, Societies, PSUs, Corporations, Statutory Bodies, Samitis, Boards/ Unnayan Parishads, etc. This practice of transferring funds provided in the Budget of the Departments into Bank Accounts of the Departments, Directorates, Societies, PSUs, Corporations, Statutory Bodies, Samitis, Boards/ Unnayan Parishads, etc. is highly irregular and against financial norms.

With the view to promote better financial discipline in the working of the Government, the Governor is pleased to direct that no Budgetary fund unless approved by the Finance Department be transferred to Bank Accounts of the Departments, Directorates, Societies, PSUs, Corporations, Statutory Bodies, Samitis, Boards/ Unnayan Parishads, etc. either direct or through the LF/ PL/ Deposit Accounts, etc.

It is further directed that all the Departments shall send a “Status Report” on the details of Bank Accounts along with budgetary amount transferred to these bank accounts in FY 2016-17 & 2017-18 and also balance as on 31.03.2017 and 31.05.2017 as per the “Annexure- A” (signed and scanned in pdf format) related with all the Directorates, Societies, PSUs, Corporations, Statutory Bodies, Samitis, Boards/ Unnayan Parishads, etc. under the administrative Control of the Department and also a soft copy of the “Status Report”, (in excel format) to sogroupt@gmail.com positively by 12.06.2017. The details of Bank Accounts in field offices may also be provided in the said report.
