Sub: Introduction of revised standard format of ‘Utilisation Certificate’ for payment made as Grants-in-Aid to the Non-Government Bodies/Grantee Institutions.

The issue relating to introduction of a revised standard format of ‘Utilisation Certificate’ for Grant-in-Aid payment made by the State Government to various Non-Government Organisations/ Grantee Institutions has been under active consideration of the Government for some time past. The Principal Accountant General (A&E) West Bengal has also suggested introduction of a revised standard format of ‘Utilisation Certificate’ for payment made from the State’s exchequer through Grants-in-Aid Bills. After careful consideration of the matter, the Governor has been pleased to introduce a revised standard format of ‘Utilisation Certificate’ for payment made to various Non-Government organisations/ Grantee Institutions as Grant-in-Aid. The ‘Utilisation Certificate’ shall be issued by the Sanctioning Authority after obtaining the required information and supporting records from the Drawing & Disbursing Officer for each Sanction Order issued. The Departmental Controlling Officer shall submit the year-wise ‘Utilisation Certificates’ to the Principal Accountant General (A&E) West Bengal within the prescribed time. The revised standard format of ‘Utilisation Certificate’ for Grant-in-Aid payment made to various Non-Government Organisations/ Grantee Institutions is enclosed as Annexure-A. Necessary amendment in the West Bengal Financial Rules will be made in due course.
