No bills after March 20, says Haryana governmentMay 25th, 2011 - 10:08 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, May 25 (IANS) In view of a large number of requests made by various departments for diversion or re-appropriation of funds in the month of March, the Haryana Government has decided that no bills pertaining to medical reimbursement, travelling allowance (TA) and other categories will be accepted after March 20 every year.
A state government spokesman said here Wednesday that heads of departments have been instructed to ensure that there is no rush of bills in the last week of March, which is the end of the financial year, for clearing of pending bills.
Besides medical reimbursement and TA, other bills pertain to leave travel concession (LTC), general provident fund, arrears, wages and salary.
Treasury officers, who clear the bills and give reimbursement, have been directed not to entertain bills coming after March 20.
“A decision to this effect has been taken because a large number of requests for diversion or re-appropriation of funds during the month of March cause a huge rush of bills in the last week of financial year in the treasury. Such delay in getting funds diverted at last moment not only increase the probability of funds not being utilised efficiently but the scrutiny of such bills at treasury also becomes difficult,” the spokesman added.
“Such bills need to be presented at the treasury before March 20 and if any bill submitted up to the referred date is rejected by the Treasury Officer due to some objection, then the bill can be resubmitted by March 25 after removing the objection and also ensuring that budget is available online. No bills will be accepted by the treasury during the last three working days of financial year and treasuries will only dispose off the pending bills during these days,” he added.
He said that the finance department will not receive any request for re-appropriation or diversion of funds after March 15.
