To utilized government funds in a better manner, the Haryana finance department has decided that no advance payment for purchases or works will be made to the state corporations at the fag end of the financial year if such bill was presented before the treasury after March 1.
The department has issued instructions in this regard to all head of departments, commissioners of all divisions, deputy commissioners and sub-divisional officers (Civil).
"It has come to the notice of the government that at the fag end of the financial year, a number of departments make advance payments for purchases or some work to various state corporations or funds are provided to societies being operated by the departments. Such payments usually do not serve any
useful purpose in the said financial year, as the works required to be done or purchases to be made cannot be completed by the closing day of the financial year. These funds thus keep lying unutilised," said a government spokesperson.
He added: "If the amount of advance proposed to be withdrawn is more than Rs 1 crore, such bill should be presented in the treasury on or before February 15 in the financial year. In all such cases where such advances are drawn during the financial year, the detailed contingency bill should be submitted in the treasury by March 25."
