In terms of G.O. no. 296-EDN(B) dated 07.10.1985 the “Director of Pension, Provident Fund and Group Insurance or any officer authorised by him” has been declared as “Audit Officer” for the purpose of auditing Pension cases under the West Bengal Recognised Non-Government Educational Institution Employees (DCRB) Scheme, 1981.

Again In terms of G.O. no. 86-SE(B) dated 01.06.1995 the procedure of verification of pension papers before submission of the same to the Directorate of Pension, Provident Fund and Group Insurance by the District Inspector of Schools was laid down in detail where it was stated that the pension papers in respect of the employees of Secondary Schools would be verified by the Joint/Deputy/Assistant Director of Accounts, Education Department and that in respect of the employees of Primary Schools would be verified by the Finance Officer, now re-designated as Controller of Finance of the District Primary School Council.
