SRINAGAR, Aug 16: The Governor's Administration in J&K mulls enhancing financial powers of the Divisional and Deputy Commissioners given their increasing role in development administration.
This information was given at a meeting convened here today under the chairmanship of Principal Secretary Finance, Navin K Choudhary to review the working of the newly created Expenditure Management Cell and the measures taken by the Finance Department to improve the State's fiscal health.
Principal Secretary Finance asked the Director General Codes to prepare a proposal for increasing the financial powers of the Divisional Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners to facilitate them to spend plan, non-plan, grant, grant in aid, etc funds. "One Accounts Officer and one Accounts Assistant shall be posted in each DC office by way of internal adjustment in the cadre," he said and added that on the directions of Governor N N Vohra some untied grants are also being put at the disposal of Div Coms and DCs to meet fiscal emergencies.
Choudhary stressed the officers to use the data on expenditure for generating reports on the performance of various departments.
"A slew of reform measures have been initiated by the Finance Department to refine the expenditure policy. This has improved the financial health of the state with J&K registering improvement in its ranking from 11 in2016 to 7 in 2018 among all the states in Fiscal Management," he said.
Choudhary also directed the officers to ensure that the codes of Drawal and Disbursal Officers (DDO) are not changed in cases where the designation of DDOs changes. He also asked the officers to organize special training programs on BEAMS and Treasury Net for the concerned officials of the Finance Department.
