                                   BUDGET CIRCULAR 2014-2015
      Guidelines for the Ministries/Departments for framing the Revised Estimates for 2013-2014 and
Budget Estimates for 2014-2015 and submitting the same to the Budget Division are as under:-


                                   I. ESTIMATES OF RECEIPTS
1.     REVENUE RECEIPTS
1.1     Estimates of Central taxes and duties administered by the Central Board of Direct Taxes and
Central Board of Excise and Customs as also of cesses collected by the CBEC, will be furnished by
them to the Budget Division giving commodity-wise estimates of manufacture/imports, duty rates and
foreign exchange rate assumptions forming the basis of the estimates.
1.2     All other items of revenue receipts, for the purpose of preparing estimates, have been divided
into the following categories:
       (i)     Taxes, duties and receipts in relation to Union territories without legislature;
       (ii)    Interest receipts in respect of loans and advances sanctioned by Ministries/ Departments
               to State and Union territory Governments, foreign governments, public sector enterprises
               and others including Government servants, interest charged to working expenses of
               departmental commercial undertakings, etc.;
       (iii)   Estimates of Revenue receipts adjustable under Major Head ` 1605 - External Grant
               Assistance' and `1606-Aid Material and Equipment' ; and
       (iv)    All other Revenue receipts including cesses except cesses collected by the Central
               Board of Excise and Customs.
1.3      Estimates of taxes, duties and other revenue receipts in relation to Union territory
Administrations will be furnished to this Ministry by Director of Accounts, Andaman and Nicobar Islands
Administration and Director of Accounts, Daman and Diu Administration, and for the other Union
territories, by the concerned Accountants General, in the form at Appendix-I.
1.4   Receipt estimates, except for items at para 1.2(ii) and 1.2(iii) above, will be furnished to the
Budget Division in the form at Appendix-I.
1.5     Recoveries from the State Governments under Article 290 of the Constitution of India, of
pensions including gratuities of High Court Judges charged on the Consolidated Fund of India under
Article 112(3)(d)(iii) of the Constitution of India are adjustable as receipts under Major Head "0071-
Contributions and Recoveries towards Pension and Other Retirement Benefits". These estimates will be
furnished by the State Accountants General to the Central Pension Accounting Officer, Ministry of
Finance, Department of Expenditure, Trikoot-II, Bhikaji Cama Place, R.K. Puram, New Delhi-110066.
1.6   Estimates of CGHS contributions will be consolidated and furnished by the Chief Controller of
Accounts, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
1.7    Estimates of rent (licence fee) recoveries accountable under Major Head "0216-Housing" in
respect of general pool Government accommodation, will be consolidated and furnished by the Chief
Controller of Accounts, Ministry of Urban Development. Where a Department has a separate pool of
accommodation (like Indian Meteorological Department, Central Board of Direct Taxes, Central Board
of Excise and Customs, etc.) the Chief Controller of Accounts of the Departments concerned with such
                                                      2
separate pool of accommodation may furnish estimates of rent receipts direct to the Budget Division
along with the estimates of other revenue receipts of the Department, in the form at Appendix-I.
1.8     Estimates of revenue receipts, adjustable under the major heads `1605-External Grant
Assistance' and `1606-Aid Material and Equipment', representing foreign aid receipts in the form of
cash grant and commodity grant respectively, may be furnished by the Ministries/Departments in the
form at Appendix `I-B' to the Controller of Aid Accounts and Audit, Department of Economic Affairs,
Indian Oil Bhavan, 5th Floor, `B' Wing, Janpath, New Delhi. The Controller of Aid Accounts and Audit
will process these estimates in accordance with the procedure prescribed separately and render the
consolidated estimates to Budget Division.
1.9     Estimates of receipts in respect of pensionary charges recoverable from Departmental
Commercial Undertakings (vide list at Statement 7 of Expenditure Budget, Vol. 1) should correspond to
related expenditure provisions.
1.10 Estimates of receipts of commercial departments, which are taken in reduction of expenditure in
the Expenditure Budget, should exactly correspond to the receipts assumed on the Expenditure side.
CCA concerned will ensure this while furnishing the receipt estimates.
1.11 The estimates should be based on past and current trends and policy decisions and other
relevant developments and supported by cogent explanations for any large variations as well as broad
particulars wherever the estimates under a minor head exceed ` 10 lakhs. This is particularly essential
for major items like import/export licence fees, CGHS contributions, house rent receipts, mint and
currency receipts, receipts of thermal/nuclear power stations, dividends from Government investments.
Estimates of dividend receipts should be given company-wise along with details of total paid up capital,
government equity & profit after tax during 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 as in the form at
Appendix I-A. These estimates on dividend receipts should be in conformity with circulars issued on
dividend payout by this Ministry. It should be noted that these explanations will form the material for the
preparation of the Explanatory Notes on the Receipts Budget and, therefore, adequacy and accuracy of
the explanations are of utmost importance. In addition to the information sought in Appendix-IA, the
specific information as sought in Appendix-IAA should also be furnished.
1.12 Department of Health and Family Welfare in respect of CGHS contributions and Ministry of
Urban Development in respect of licence fee of general pool residential accommodation may separately
indicate in the receipts estimates to be rendered by them, the additional receipts estimated to be
realised consequent upon the revision in the rate of contribution and licence fee.
1.13 Estimates received by the Financial Adviser will be scrutinised in his office in regard to the
correctness of accounts classification, full coverage and reasonableness of the estimates and modified
(reduced, increased and/or missing items added) to the extent necessary in the judgment of the
Financial Adviser. Thereafter, the Controller of Accounts should furnish the estimates as finally
approved by the Financial Adviser, to the Budget Division by 22nd November, 2013.
1.14 ESTIMATES OF INTEREST RECEIPTS: These estimates may be prepared in the following
groups:
       (a)     Interest receipts from State and Union Territory Governments;
       (b)     Interest receipts from foreign governments;
       (c)     Interest receipts from public sector financial institutions;
       (d)     Interest receipts from industrial and commercial enterprises, both in the public and
               private sectors;
       (e)     Interest receipts from statutory bodies (municipalities, port trusts, etc.);
       (f)     Interest receipts from departmental commercial undertakings;
       (g)     Interest receipts from other borrowers (excluding Government servants) e.g. dock labour
               boards, cooperative societies, educational institutions, etc.;
       (h)     Interest on advances to Government servants; and
       (i)     Other interest receipts e.g. premium on loans floated, interest on Cash Balance
               Investment Account - these would mainly pertain to the Department of Economic Affairs.
                                                    3
1.14.1 The Controllers of Accounts will prepare estimates of interest receipts with reference to loans
outstanding against borrowers in their books including loans expected to be sanctioned during 2014-
2015. The estimates will, after obtaining the approval of the Financial Adviser, be furnished by them, in
duplicate, in form at Appendix-II latest by October 22, 2013. In case of `nil' proposal, the same may also
be submitted to Budget Division in writing without fail. For the sake of convenience this form covers
both interest receipts as well as loan repayments.
1.14.2 In the case of industrial and commercial undertakings in the public sector/other parties, the
estimates should invariably be supported by details in the form at Appendix-II-A for each such
undertaking/party. Wherever the interest receipt is notional (being either matched by subsidy provision
or by grant of loans to meet the interest liability), this fact should be specifically indicated in the
`Remarks' column. No column in Appendix-II-A is to be left blank, especially relating to Defaults in
respect of dues upto. 31.3.2013.
1.14.3 A realistic assessment of interest due from Public Sector Undertakings and other loanees as
also of loan repayments by them will be made taking into account the need to ensure that the loanees
fully discharge their current interest obligations and also clear outstanding dues in the next 2-3 years.
1.14.4 The estimates of interest receipts, and also recoveries of loans and advances, from public
sector enterprises including financial institutions must be framed on the basis of the departmental
records as per loan register maintained by the PAOs and not as proposed by the companies or
financial institutions. Accordingly, information to be given in the form Appendix II-A should reflect the
position as per departmental records. The estimates should show (i) defaults of repayments of
interest upto 31.3.2013 company-wise, (ii) BE 2013-2014 (iii) RE 2013-2014 (iv) BE 2014-2015 on
the basis of current dues according to loan registers. Separately in a footnote, assessment of the
prospects of recovery of dues as approved by F.A. may also be given in `Remarks' column. The
amount due for recovery as interest & loan repayment during 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 should also
be shown distinctly for each PSU.
1.14.5 Interest charged on capital outlay of departmental commercial undertakings should correspond
to expenditure provisions for the purpose. Controllers of Accounts while framing the estimates may
invariably ensure that this correspondence is maintained. Average rate of interest to be adopted for this
purpose is being advised separately.
1.14.6 Reliefs and concessions provided to various PSUs in the form of write off of loans, waiver of
interest/guarantee fee are reflected in Expenditure Budget as distinct items of expenditure with
equivalent receipts assumed there under. These are all non-cash expenditure. The receipts so
assumed in such cases may also be included in the Receipts Budget while furnishing receipts
estimates to Budget Division.
2.     CAPITAL RECEIPTS
2.1    Estimates of Capital receipts from Ministries/Departments will include receipts by way of loan
repayments, disinvestment of equity holdings in Public Sector Enterprises, issue of bonus shares by the
PSEs in favour of Central Government, and net receipts under Public Account transactions.
2.2     Estimates of receipts by way of loan repayments will be furnished in forms at Appendices II and
II-A, along with estimates of interest receipts as earlier mentioned in paragraphs 1.14.1 and 1.14.2
above. Where such receipts are notional (by way of write off or refinancing through fresh loans or
conversion into equity), the fact should be highlighted in the ` Remarks' column. Likewise, any
modification in the terms of repayment, like extension of period of moratorium and/or repayment, should
also be indicated. Here also the estimates should fully reflect the endeavors to realise the amounts due
from the various loanees.
2.3    Estimates of receipts in respect of bonus shares, issued by Government companies in favour of
the Central Government, classifiable under Major Head `4000-Miscellaneous Capital Receipts' will be
furnished company-wise by the Controller of Accounts in form at Appendix-I. The estimates should
correspond to the provisions for related investments included on the expenditure side.
2.4    The estimates of disinvestment of equity holdings in Public Sector Enterprises may be centrally
furnished by Department of Disinvestment.
2.5   The estimates of receipts in form Appendix-II in so far as Government servants are
concerned, will include estimates of interest receipts and Estimates of repayment of loans.
                                                    4
2.6     PUBLIC ACCOUNT:- The Controllers of Accounts and the concerned Accounts Officers of
Union territory Governments/Administrations (i.e. both with and without legislatures) should make a
detailed review of the Public Account transactions which are accounted for in their books, except those
referred to in para 2.7 below, and work out on the basis of the past trends and other information
available with them, estimates for receipts and payments under it relating to their
Ministries/Departments. The estimates of receipts and outgoings should be prepared on separate
sheets. These estimates should reach Budget Division latest by October 22, 2013 in the form at
Appendix-III. The estimates should have footnotes explaining the nature of the transactions and
adequate explanations for any major variation in estimates with reference to past actuals and Budget
Estimates. The estimates to be furnished to Budget Division should be as approved by the Financial
Adviser and duly consolidated and complete in all respects, for the Ministry/ Department as a whole,
Demand-wise. These should not be sent in piecemeal.
2.7      Estimates relating to Group Insurance Scheme for Central Government employees introduced
from 1.1.1982 will be furnished to the Budget Division by the Chief Controller of Accounts, Finance and
those relating to the Union Territory Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme introduced with
effect from 1.1.1984 by the Ministry of Home Affairs (U.T. Cell).
2.8    Ministry of Railways (Railway Board), Department of Telecommunications and Ministry of
Defence (Finance Division) in respect of Defence Services will furnish estimates of Public Account
transactions in their Cash Requirement Estimates.
       Normally Ministries/Departments should not have any large transactions in Public Account
except in areas like provident funds and approved special deposits. No net debit or credit in a year in
the Public Account will, therefore, be accepted except with full justification.


                                II. ESTIMATES OF EXPENDITURE
3.     BUDGET ESTIMATES
3.1     The estimates of expenditure are to be furnished to Budget Division in stages. The estimates
will be finalised after Secretary (Exp.) has held discussions with the Financial Advisers, as in the past.
These discussions are scheduled to commence in October/November 2013. These will focus on the net
Budget of each Ministry/ Department i.e. expenditure less revenue receipts and capital receipts, like
recoveries of loans, issue of bonus shares, etc.
3.2     The following aspects may be kept in view by the Ministries/Departments while formulating the
expenditure estimates:
3.2.1 It is necessary to review the existing Expenditure Budget in the first instance, to prioritise the
activities and schemes, both on the Plan and Non-Plan side and identify those activities and schemes,
which can be eliminated or reduced in size or merged with any other scheme. All
Ministries/Departments were expected to take up the exercise of reviewing/evaluation of all ongoing
schemes/programmes to determine their continued relevance vide Secretary(Expenditure)' s O.M.
F. No. 7(5)/E-Coord/2004 dated 24.09.2004(Annex - A). Departments should ensure that all schemes
that have been discontinued, do not find mention in RE 2013-14. Similarly schemes that are not to
continue beyond the year 2013-14, should not be included for BE 2014-15. A mention of the schemes
discontinued or merged should be made in the notes below the SBEs. Moreover, from the Eleventh
Five Year Plan, Planning Commission's "guidelines regarding inclusion of new Schemes in the Plan,
enhancement of Five Year Plan/Annual Plan outlays, major changes in the scope and investment
approval of the Plan Schemes, for the Central Ministries/Departments" vide their U.O. No.
N-11016/4/2006-PC dated 29.8.2006 (Annex - B) may be strictly adhered to before firming up the SBEs
by Ministries/Departments. Planning Commission, vide their OM No. M- 12043/03/2013-PC dated
11.07.2013 (Annex ­ R) has issued guidelines regarding restructuring of Centrally Sponsored schemes
in the 12th Plan. All Ministries/Departments may give due regard to these guidelines.
3.2.2 All the Ministries/Departments (except those specifically exempted by Ministry of
Development of North Eastern Region) are required to spend 10% of the Gross Budget Support from
their Central Plan for the benefit of North Eastern Region & Sikkim. This Division's O.Ms. of 24th April,
2001 (Annex - C), 13th September, 2002 (Annex - D), 14th September, 2005 (Annex - E) and 5th
February, 2007(/Annex-E-I) in this connection may be kept in view. While sending the RE 2013-14
                                                      5
(Plan), the Ministries/ Departments should separately show the Central Plan Expenditure on
schemes/projects benefitting the North Eastern Region and Sikkim. The details of exemptions for
schemes/programmes, if any, granted by the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region may
be furnished along with Plan SBEs. "Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region may send the
List of Ministries/ Departments and the schemes that are exempted from earmarking 10% of the
budgeted allocation as a lump sum provision for NER for the year 2014-2015 by 25.1.2013 positively".
3.2.3 Plan Provisions for North Eastern Region and Sikkim: Budget provisions towards
projects/schemes for development of North Eastern Region and Sikkim have, hitherto, been provided
as `lump sum' under the Major Head `2552-North Eastern Region' for Revenue expenditure and the
Major Head `4552-Capital Outlay on North Eastern Region'/ Major Head '6552-Loans for North Eastern
Region' for Capital expenditure for eventual re-appropriation to appropriate functional heads of
expenditure. However, such lump sum provisions should be disintegrated upto object head level
corresponding to different functional major/sub-major/minor heads, indicating the details, in the Detailed
Demands for Grants and provided for under the Major Head `2552-North Eastern Region' for Revenue
expenditure and the Major Head `4552-Capital Outlay on North Eastern Region'/' 6552-Loans for North
Eastern Region' for Capital expenditure, respectively for eventual re-appropriation. This is to facilitate
informing Parliament about the nature of expenditure, end-beneficiary, etc. After approval of the budget
by Parliament, the expenditure provisions can be transferred to the functional head for incurring
expenditure through re-appropriation by exercise of powers delegated in this Ministry's D.O. letter No.
F.2 (66)-B (CDN)/2001 dated 12.6.2001 (Annex - F). In this connection, instructions have been issued
vide this Ministry's O.Ms. No. F.2(66)-B(CDN)/2001 dated 14.9.2005 (Annex - E) and dated
5.2.2007(Annex-E-I).
3.2.4 While framing the estimates, due note may be taken of the past performance, the stages of
formulation/implementation of the various schemes, the institutional capacity of the implementing
agencies to implement the scheme as scheduled, the constraints on spending by the spending
agencies, and most importantly the quantum of Government assistance lying with the recipients
unutilised/ unaccounted for etc. with a view to minimising the scope for available surrenders at a later
stage. The Parliamentary Committees have been repeatedly expressing concern over incidence of
large savings in the Grant. The Public Accounts Committee also requires that savings in a Grant
amounting to ` 100 crore and above have to be explained to the Committee.
3.2.5 Ministry of Finance, Budget Division has issued instructions on the need for the individual
Ministry/Department to put in place effective mechanism for realistically assessing their requirement of funds
in a way that would ward off the occurrence of unwarranted surrender of savings at a later date. The latest
instructions on large scale unspent provisions have been issued for strict compliance by the
ministries/Departments vide O.M. F. No. 7(6)-B(R)/2001 dated 20th July, 2001 (Annex- G) and
F.No.7(1)/B(D)/2006 dated 31st July, 2006 (Annex- H).
3.2.6 Under the standing instructions of this Ministry, no provision should normally be made in the
Budget without completion of pre-Budget scrutiny of a project/scheme. However, where provision has
been made without the necessary scrutiny, such scrutiny should be completed and appropriate
approvals obtained therefor, before the commencement of the financial year or latest by the time the
Budget is passed by the Parliament.
3.2.7 The Ministry of Finance has suggested some Measures for effective control of expenditure
against the sanctioned grant/ appropriation vide O.M. No. 7(2)/E.Coord/2013 dated 18.09.2013
(Annex-Q). All Ministries/Departments may give due regard to these instructions for effective
expenditure control.
3.2.8 For providing grants-in-aid to autonomous bodies and institutions, the instructions contained in
Rule 209 of the General Financial Rules, 2005 may be kept in view. In cases where activities of a body
cover more than one function of the Government and the body is likely to approach several Departments
for grants, consultation should take place between the concerned Departments before the grants are
approved. The body should be specifically asked to furnish details of assistance received or proposed to
be received from other Central Government Departments and also from State Governments.
                                                    6
3.2.9 No provision may be made in the establishment budget for posts, which are lying vacant for one
year or more. Even otherwise, provisioning for vacant posts should be made with circumspection so as
to avoid chances of eventual savings due to these vacant posts not being filled up.
3.2.10 The provision for externally aided projects may be made under identifiable heads, segregated
from other items of expenditure as in the form at Appendix IX-B.
3.2.11 Ministries/Departments are making Plan provisions against externally aided projects and these
are being shown in a separate annex viz., "Statement showing project-wise provisions for expenditure
on externally-aided projects in the Central Plan" in the `Detailed Demands for Grants' of the concerned
Ministry/Department, as prescribed in para 8.6(ii) (Appendix-IX B) and as in the form at Appendix-X B. It
is observed that there is a time lag between incurring of expenditure and claiming reimbursement
thereof from the concerned donors. This obviously puts pressure on the GOI' s Ways & Means
Advances position. In order that the eligible expenditures are promptly lodged in the form of claims with
the relevant donors through the Office of Controller of Aid Accounts & Audit for seeking disbursement of
the committed external assistance, Financial Advisers should hold periodical reviews in this regard. It is
proposed to review the budget provision made in BE 2013-2014 against externally aided projects and
the action taken to claim reimbursements thereof from the external donors, during the pre-budget
review meetings to be taken by Secretary (Expenditure).
3.2.12 Items of expenditure which are linked to receipts, like those met from proceeds of cess or '1605-
External Grant Assistance' or '1606-Aid Material and Equipment' may also be similarly segregated in
the Statement of Budget Estimates.
3.2.13 Subsidies being provided towards payment of interest fall under two categories. They are (i)
100% subsidy and (ii) interest differential (part subsidy). These two items may be shown distinctly in
Statement of Budget Estimates.
3.2.14 With a view to maintaining uniformity in the treatment of provision for Voluntary Retirement
Scheme(VRS)/Voluntary Separation Scheme (VSS) to Central PSUs, it is desired that these amounts
should be depicted as a Non-Plan loan, unless approved otherwise by the Competent Authority.
3.2.15 As per Article 112 of the Constitution of India, Annual Financial Statement shall distinguish
expenditure on revenue account from other expenditure. Rule 46(2) of General Financial Rules, 2005
(GFR) mentions that the estimates of expenditure shall distinguish provisions for expenditure on
revenue account from that for other expenditure including expenditure on Capital Account on loans by
the Government and for repayment of loans, treasury bills and ways and means advances. Further
Rule 79 of GFR defines the Capital and Revenue Expenditure. All the Ministries/Departments may
kindly refer to these Rules and prepare the Budget Estimates in compliance of the statutory obligations.
3.3    Other Instructions on Preparation of Statement of Budget Estimate :- The Statement of
Budget Estimates included in the Expenditure Budget, Volume 2, should normally show distinctly,
schemes, etc. for which the provision in the RE or next BE is ` 10 crore or more. Important schemes,
irrespective of the provision for them, can also be shown separately in the SBE, if necessary.
3.4     Further, the estimates of expenditure in the Expenditure Budget Vol. 2 and also in Demands for
Grants, are expressed in crores of rupees with two decimal places. Under the present system of
rounding, major head under which the total provision is less than ` 50,000 gets excluded from the two
documents referred to above. This causes discrepancy with Detailed Demands for Grants in which the
provisions are expressed in thousands of rupees. In such cases the major head, etc. will be shown in
the SBE and the Demands for Grants with a footnote that "the provision is less than ` 1 lakh". See also
instructions at paragraph 12.1.
3.5    The Ministries/Departments may review the SBEs for 2013-2014 in respect of their Demands for
Grants and modifications therein, if any, as may be required keeping in view the guidelines mentioned
above may be suggested to Budget Division.
       The SBE's will be furnished to Budget Division in two stages as indicated below:
3.6.1 Statement of Budget Estimates (Proposed) :- Ministries/Departments will, as usual, arrange
to obtain the estimates of expenditure for the current year and the next year from various organisations
                                                     7
and units under their control. The estimates may be obtained in the form in Appendix-IV as may be
modified to suit the special requirements of individual Ministries/Departments. The estimates will be
scrutinised by the administrative units of the Ministry/Department and forwarded to the Financial
Adviser for further examination and processing. The estimates finally recommended by the Financial
Adviser will be summarised in the form of Statement of Budget Estimates (proposed) and eighteen (18)
copies thereof forwarded to the Budget Division of the Ministry of Finance. The estimates will be on the
same pattern as appearing in the Expenditure Budget 2013-2014 Vol. 2. In SBEs, items of omnibus
nature like "other programmes" may be desegregated so that they are below ` 10 crore. The
expenditure on "Salaries and Wages" may be shown separately. Further, the expenditure met from any
cess or on externally aided projects (reimbursable portion) may be distinctly identified. The form in
which these estimates are to be furnished is at Appendix IV-A.
3.6.2 Discussions with Secretary (Expenditure) :- In the SBE (proposed), the RE 2013-2014 for
Plan and Non-Plan expenditure and BE 2014-2015 for Non-Plan expenditure may be indicated
separately for Revenue and Capital expenditure. In preparing RE, the following factors inter-alia,
must be taken into consideration:

              2013-14. The actuals may be reconciled with the monthly accounts compiled by
              Controller General of Accounts before incorporating the same in Appendix IV-B;
       g)     The following information may also be furnished to Budget Division along with the SBEs

               (x)     Explanations for variations between BE 2013-14 and RE 2013-14 (proposed)
                       may be given scheme-wise separately. Any increase/decrease in BE 2014-15
                       (proposed) may also be explained suitably.
Note: - The Pre-budget meeting of the Ministry/Department will be scheduled only after receipt of full
        information as required above.
3.6.3 It is proposed to discuss during the meetings to be taken by Secretary (Exp.) the totality of
the requirements of funds for various programmes and schemes, along with receipts of the
Departments (viz. interest receipts, dividends, loan repayments, departmental receipts, receipts
of Departmental Commercial Undertakings, etc). As indicated in para 3.1 the indicative budget
figures will be discussed on a net basis. The dates of discussions will be intimated separately. In
the meantime, Financial Advisers may process the SBEs and forward the same to Budget
Division by:
       (i)     10 th October, 2013 in respect of the U.T. Demands and Non-plan Demands
               (except Defence Services and Defence Pensions).
       (ii)    22 nd October, 2013 in respect of all other Demands.
3.7     Statement of Budget Estimates (Final) :- After the pre-Budget meetings are over, the
approved ceilings for expenditure, as finalised in these meetings, will be communicated on the basis of
which Financial Advisers will prepare the Statement of Budget Estimates (Final) in form Appendix IV-A
and forward to Budget Division. This SBE (final) will be accompanied by four statements mentioned
below:-
       (i)      Showing the amount of charged expenditure included under each of the major heads in
                RE 2013-2014, BE 2014-2015 (Appendix V);
       (ii)     Showing the estimates, if any of recoveries taken in reduction of expenditure under each
                of the major heads included in the SBE, (Appendix V-A);
       (iii)    Loan and equity components of investments in Public Enterprises with the externally-
                aided component therein (Appendix V-B);
       (iv)     Brief notes explaining major variations between BE 2013-14 and RE 2013-2014; and
                also between RE 2013-2014 and BE 2014-2015 should be furnished in all cases
                wherever the variations under the items listed in the SBE exceed 10% of the BE or RE,
                as the case may be, whichever is lower. The explanation should be meaningful and
                specific. Vague indications in phrases like "due to less requirement of the project" or
                "more requirement of the project" will not be accepted.
3.8    The SBE (final) will be sent to Budget Division in two stages: (i) Immediately after the ceilings
are communicated by this Ministry the columns relating to Non-Plan RE 2013-2014 and BE 2014-2015;
and Plan RE 2013-2014 should be filled and forwarded to Budget Division; and (ii) As soon as the
Planning Commission communicates the Annual Plan allocations, SBE (final) for the Plan expenditure
in BE 2014-2015 should be forwarded to the Budget Division. Budget Division will require three copies
of SBE (final) in both cases.
3.9    In so far as the Department of Atomic Energy and Department of Space are concerned, SBE
(proposed) may be forwarded to Budget Division as soon as the estimates are compiled, but not later
than October 22, 2013; without waiting for the approval by the respective Commissions. SBE (final) for
Non-Plan RE 2013-2014 and BE 2014-2015 and Plan RE 2013-2014 may be sent as soon as the
estimates are approved by the Commissions. SBE (final) for Plan expenditure 2014-2015 may be sent
as soon as the Planning Commission' s allocations are received.
3.10 Office of the Comptroller & Auditor General of India may send the SBE to Budget Division by
October 22, 2013. These may be supported by actuals as indicated in preceding paragraph along with
item-wise actuals for 2012-2013, as also actuals upto September, 2012 of BE 2012-13 and actuals
upto September, 2013 of BE 2013-2014.
3.11 In case any modification or amendment is required to be made in the figures already
communicated to Budget Division through SBE (final), the modifications/amendments should be
                                                    9
communicated in the form in Appendix VI. Ministries/Departments should not send once again
the entire SBE for this purpose.
3.12 Ministries/Departments may take particular care in filling the estimates relating to each of the
public enterprises (budgetary support, internal and extra budgetary resources and total plan outlay).
Similarly, if works expenditure is to be incurred through the Ministry of Urban Development, the same
should be included in the column provided therefor in the Statement of Budget Estimates after settling
the estimates with Ministry of Urban Development. SBE (final) for Plan should carry a certificate that the
total provision inclusive of the works outlay corresponds to the allocation given by the Planning
Commission.
3.13 The budget provision towards `Works Outlay' is reflected in the Demands for Grants for the year
2013-14 (both under plan and non-plan) in respect of Ministries/Departments, who expressed their
willingness for such reflection, in terms of this Division' s O.M. No.1(5)B(AC)/2005 dated 12.10.2006
(Annex-P). Such provisions in respect of other Ministries/Departments will continue to be reflected in
the Demands for Grants of Ministry of Urban Development (Demand No.101-Department of Urban
Development and Demand No.102-Public Works) in BE 2014-15. Ministries/Departments, which are
willing to shift their provisions towards ` works outlay' from the Demands for Grants of Ministry of Urban
Development to their Demands for Grants, may approach this Division, separately.
3.14 In the case of Union Territories without Legislature the Ministry of Home Affairs (being the nodal
Ministry) will get the Statement of Accepted Estimates from the Ministries/Departments and U.T.s
concerned and examine these to ensure that the total provisions are within the ceilings approved for
each U.T. They should furnish the information along with related recoveries, and receipts, to the
Ministry of Finance (Budget Division) Major Head-wise and Ministry-wise on the same pattern as per
the Demands for Grants 2013-2014. The other Ministries/Departments and U.Ts are requested not to
send any SBEs to the Ministry of Finance direct. All correspondence in this regard should be made with
the Ministry of Home Affairs only.
3.15 In cases of items of work transferred from one Ministry/Department to another, subsequent to
the presentation of the Budget for 2013-2014, the B.E. and R.E. 2013-2014 (and in the Detailed
Demands for Grants, the Actuals 2012-2013 also) in respect of these items may be shown along with
the BE 2014-2015 in the relevant Demands for Grants (for 2014-2015) of the Ministry/Department
which has taken over the work, to facilitate comparison. Consequently, these items may completely be
deleted from the Demands for Grants for 2014-2015 of the Ministry/ Department from which these have
been transferred. Necessary Supplementary Demands for Grants provision may be proposed by the
Ministry/Department to which the work has been transferred.
3.16 Pursuant to the instructions contained in the Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules
1961; any transfer of items of works and their corresponding provisions from a Ministry/Department
would be effected through Supplementary Demands for Grants. Therefore, at RE stage, the
Ministry/Department from where the work has been transferred should surrender the expenditure
provision from those specific items of work and indicate the same categorically during the pre-Budget
discussion under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Exp.).
4.     SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE COMPOSITE DEMAND FOR CIVIL `PENSIONS' - The
arrangements for submission of estimates for inclusion in the Demand `Pensions' will be as follows:

               expenditure, it should be reflected accordingly.
       (iii)   The Director of Audit, Central Revenues will furnish to CPAO the estimates of pensions
               in respect of staff of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department retiring during 2014-

               Social Security and Welfare - Other Social Security and Welfare Programmes - Other
               Programmes'. In furnishing the estimates for payments out of Compassionate Fund, this
               classification may be adopted.
     Note (2): Central Government Employees' Insurance Scheme: This Scheme is confined to
               those employees only who have opted out of the Group Insurance Scheme introduced
               from 1st January 1982. The Department of Expenditure (Establishment Division) in this
               regard will furnish consolidated estimates of expenditure to the Budget Division, under
               advice to the CPAO.
5.     SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS RELATING TO ESTIMATES TO BE INCLUDED IN COMPOSITE
       DEMANDS CONTROLLED BY BUDGET DIVISION

(Railway Board), Ministry of Defence.
        It may please be noted that Public Accounts Committee, in its 23rd Report (13th Lok
Sabha) on the excesses over voted grants and charged appropriation (1998-99), suggested that
effective coordination between various estimating and disbursing authorities be put in place
with the help of sound data-base and other IT facilities so that the excess expenditure could be
avoided altogether. It is emphasized that PAC's directive may be complied with in order to
avoid excess expenditure in the `Appropriation-Interest Payments'. The Finance Wings of the
Ministries/Departments are advised to ensure that estimates of ` Interest Payments' are furnished by
their Controllers of Accounts to Budget Division. Any increase or decrease in Revised Estimates
for the current year and in Budget Estimates for the next year will also be explained suitably by the
estimating authority, while furnishing estimates to Budget Division. The Ministries/ Departments

                                                    11

6.     NOTES ON DEMANDS
6.1    The notes on Demands for Grants appear in Expenditure Budget Volume-2. These are
intended to depict a brief summation of the budget allocations as appearing in the Expenditure Budget
Volume-2. Hence, these may be brief, to the point and must bear a link to the item for which the
Budget allocations have been reflected. Abbreviations contained in the notes should be expended at
least once for clarity. More elaborate detailing on schemes can be made in the Expenditure Budget
Volume-1.
6.2    The notes may be forwarded in bilingual form together with a soft copy to the designated officers
in the Budget Division within three days of rendition of the Final SBE for Plan expenditure
2013-14.
6.3   Broad guidelines for preparation of the Notes on Demands are contained in Appendix VIII.
These guidelines may be adhered to and all relevant information made available in time.
7.     MATERIAL FOR STATEMENTS TO BE APPENDED TO DEMANDS FOR GRANTS ­
        A statement showing items of new service/new instrument of service is included in the Demands
for Grants. Ministries/Departments should, as soon as SBE (Final) is forwarded to Budget Division,
arrange to furnish a statement showing details of items of new service/new instrument of service for which
provision is made in BE 2014-15 (Appendix X-A). The information so furnished for inclusion in Demands
for Grants should exactly match the information included in the Detailed Demand for Grants of the
respective Ministry /Department. Attention is invited to Department of Economic Affairs' O.M. No.F.1 (23)-
B(AC)/2005 dated 25.05.2006 on Revised Guidelines on Financial Limits to be observed in determining
cases relating to "New Service/New Instrument of Service" (Annex-O)
8.      DETAILED DEMANDS FOR GRANTS
8.1     The respective Ministries/Departments will prepare the Detailed Demands for Grants. While
preparing the Detailed Demands for Grants it is important to ensure that the classification, namely,
major head, minor head, etc. is as per the heads of account prescribed in the List of Major and Minor
Heads of Account. During formulation of Detailed Demands for Grants for the year 2014-2015, due
regard may be given to this Division's circular F.No.15(4)-B(D)/2003 dated 9th July, 2003 (Annex- I),
on the issue of budgeting for "Information Technology". It is noticed that despite the said instructions of
Budget Division, the same are not complied with by some of the Ministries/Departments. It is
emphasized that the Ministries/Departments may note these instructions for compliance.
8.2      It has also to be ensured by Ministries/ Departments that the totals for each Major Head and the
total provisions by Revenue and Capital Sections separately for `charged' and `voted' included in the
Detailed Demands for Grants exactly correspond to the provisions included in the main Demands for
Grants which are prepared by the Budget Division. For this purpose copies of the main Demand as
finally included by the Budget Division will be made available to the Ministries/Departments concerned
for ensuring this correspondence. Final Print order for Detailed Demands for Grants should be
given only after the reconciliation is completed.
8.3      The Major Heads Codes shown in the Detailed Demands for Grants should correspond to the
code in the main Demands for Grants. Consequently, where for a major head there is only actual for
2012-2013 and no provision has been made in B.E. 2013-2014, R.E. 2013-2014 and B.E. 2014-2015, a
separate sub-head therefor should not be retained. The actual may, however, be included in the total
for that major head with a footnote as follows:
"Includes expenditure of Thousand ` .......... against sub-head ....... in the Demands for Grants No.
........ for 2012-2013."
8.4    Instructions issued by this Ministry in December, 1994 regarding standard numeric codification
of heads of accounts may be strictly adhered to. No new sub-head/detailed head will be opened and
incorporated in the Detailed Demands for Grants without getting necessary numeric codes therefor,
from the Controller General of Accounts.
8.5    In cases of items of work transferred from one Ministry/Department to another subsequent to the
presentation of the Budget for 2013-2014, the B.E. and R.E. 2013-2014 (and in the Detailed Demands
                                                    12

for Grants, the Actuals 2012-2013 also) in respect of these items may be shown along with the BE
2014-2015 in the relevant Demands for Grants 2014-2015 of the Ministry/Department which has taken
over the work, to facilitate comparison. Consequently, these items may completely be deleted from the
Demands for Grants for 2014-2015 of the Ministry/ Department from which these have been
transferred. Necessary Supplementary Demands for Grants provision may be proposed by the
Ministry/Department to which the work has been transferred. Pursuant to the instructions contained in
the Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules, 1961, any transfer of items of works and their
corresponding provisions from a Ministry/Department would be effected through Supplementary
Demands for Grants. Therefore, at RE stage, the Ministry/Department from where the work has been
transferred should surrender the expenditure provision from those specific items of work and indicate
the same categorically during the pre-Budget discussion under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Exp.).
8.6    The Detailed Demands for Grants will be accompanied by the following schedules/ statements:-
       (i)      Schedule showing the estimated strength of establishment and provision therefor
                (Appendix IX-A). Povisions are to be grouped according to pay scales. The figures shown
                should correspond with those given for summary statement as at paragraph 10.1 (v).
       (ii)     Statement showing project-wise provision for expenditure on externally aided projects in
                the Central Plan (Appendix IX- B).
       (iii)    Schedule showing broad details of Non-Plan expenditure provisions of ` 25 lakhs and

included under a major head should also be suitably rounded so as to work up to the total in
respect of each major head in crores of rupees with two decimal places. Similarly, the provisions
under the various detailed heads in the Detailed Demands for Grants should also be suitably
rounded so that the total under each major head included in that demand is in crores of rupees
with two decimal places. It should, however, be ensured that in the amount so rounded off, there
is no inflation in the total fund requirements.

      Ministry of External Affairs).
h)    In regard to a capital project, the focus of attention should be on the following:­
      (i) Purpose of the project. (ii) Estimated cost of the project in Rs. crore. (iii) Capacity. (iv) Target date for completion.
i)    All major projects under a Public Enterprise costing Rs.25 crores or more may be specifically referred to in the Notes. In respect of multi-
      project enterprises like NTPC, for projects costing Rs.100 crores or more, budget provisions may be indicated in the Notes.
j)    In respect of a Ministry/Department for which a separate Performance Budget is not presented (like Defence Ministry), the total value
      of production may be given in respect of each of the public enterprise under it.
k)    All projects, schemes, etc. which are financed (fully or partly) from external assistance may be mentioned.
l)    All organisations, schemes, etc. included under the residuary items like other programmes may be mentioned except where the Budget
      provision is very small.
m) In respect of Government 's investment in public sector enterprises for plan purposes, the break-up of the investment as equity
   investment and loans may be given separately, preferably in a tabular form when more than one company is involved.
n)    Lastly, lengthwise, the Notes should be concise and devoid of repetition.
o)    Where the expenditure includes any item connected with foreign currency expenditure, a note indicating the exchange rates adopted
      for the purpose of estimation should accompany the SBE.
p)    It has been noticed that many items do not provide any useful insight about the expenditure. It is stressed that the notes on Demands
      are carefully and comprehensively revised and that last year's notes are not merely modified.

                      allowances with reference to the previous year, or the projections made for the next year, this may invariably be explained in brief.

                                       OFFICE MEMORANDUM
   Sub : Guidelines on expenditure management - Fiscal prudence and austerity
   In supersession of this Departments O.Ms, dated 17/6/1996, 20/8/1998, 5/8/1999, 24/9/2000 and 10/
10/2001 on the subject cited above, the following austerity measures shall take effect from October 1,
2004 :
   i)   All on-going programmes and schemes, both Plan and non-Plan, should be carefully reviewed,
        scrutinized and evaluated to determine their continued relevance. This exercise should be taken
        up immediately and completed before the end of this calendar year.
   ii) Deviations of expenditure from the prescribed budgetary ceilings should not be allowed. FAs
       should personally ensure that unauthorized expenditure above the appropriations is not incurred
       in any circumstances.
   iii) It should be ensured that all profit-making PSEs declare a minimum dividend on equity of 20% or
        a minimum dividend pay out of 20% of post-tax profits, whichever is higher. The minimum dividend
        pay out in respect of Oil, Petroleum, Chemical and other infrastructure sectors should be 30% of
        post-tax profits;
   iv) All profit making companies must also consider issuing bonus shares to the Government.
   v) All profit making Joint Venture companies should be asked to make concerted efforts to give a
      dividend of 20% on Government equity holding.
   vi) Other non-tax receipts should be revised so that at least the cost of the services is recovered.
   vii) Budget formulation should lay greater emphasis on explicit recognition of the revenue constraints
        and a realistic projection of the budgetary allocations required for various projects/schemes and
        there must be rigid adherence to budgetary ceilings. All procedures laid down for incurring both
        Plan and Non-Plan expenditure on schemes should be followed scrupulously. In view of the severe
        constraints on resources, additional funds to any Ministry or Department shall not be provided at
        the revised estimate stage, except in rare and exceptional circumstances.
   viii) No fresh financial commitments should be made on items which are not provided for in the budget
         approved by Parliament.
   ix) There have been cases of Ministries, releasing funds to autonomous bodies year after year,
       despite the fact that there are substantial balances with them remaining unutilised and kept in
       deposit with the banks. . The Ministries should complete a detailed review of all such cases by
       31.10.2004 and, pending such a review, the Ministries are advised not to release funds in such
       cases. The responsibility for regulating release of funds in these cases will rest with the Financial
       Advisers (FAs).
   x) Most autonomous bodies are given 100% deficit grants. These shall be reduced in a graded
      manner by 5% in successive years/i.e. to 95% in the first year, 90% in the second year and so on,
      in respect of such bodies which have the potential of raising resources.
   xi) Timely repayment of loans provided by the Government to the PSUs and payment of fees/charges
       on Government Guarantees should also be monitored by the FAs.
   xii) There shall be a mandatory 10% cut in the budgetary allocation-for non-plan, non-salary
        expenditure, including OTA/ honorarium. No re-appropriation of funds to augment these heads of
                                                    47
         expenditure would be allowed. Austerity must be reflected in furnishing of offices/offices at
         residences. The expenditure limit prescribed for these purposes shall be strictly enforced.
     xiii) Utmost economy should be exercised in use of staff cars and other official vehicles. In accordance
           with the ceiling prescribed at SI. No. (xii), there shall be a 10% cut in the consumption and allocation
           of funds for expenditure on POL and travel.
     xiv)Foreign travel should be restricted to unavoidable official engagements. There shall be a ban on
         foreign travel for Study Tours, Seminars, Workshops etc. funded by the Govt. of India except for
         annual and other formal meetings of bilateral/multilateral bodies viz. IMF, World Bank, WHO, ILO,
         Joint Commissions, etc. Size of official delegations, where foreign travel is unavoidable, shall be
         restricted to the bare minimum.
     xv) The rate of per diem allowance for travel abroad to all countries and for all categories, officials/
         non-officials belonging to Government, autonomous institutions and PSUs shall continue to be
         depressed by 25% as at present.
     xvi)Utmost austerity will be observed in organizing conferences/ seminars/workshops. All grants being
         given for such purposes would be reviewed by Department of Expenditure.
     xvii) Ban on creation of Plan and Non-Plan posts will continue. Any unavoidable proposals for the
          creation of plan posts including Groups `B', "C and `D' posts -shall' continue to be referred to the
          Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) for approval.
     xviii) Every Ministry/Department shall undertake a review of all the posts which are lying vacant in the
          Ministry/Department and in the Attached and Subordinate Offices, in consultation with the Ministry
          of Finance (Department of Expenditure). FAs will ensure that the review is completed in a time
          bound manner (and, in any event, not later than 31.10.2004) and full details of vacant posts in
          their respective Ministries etc., are available. Till the review is completed, no vacant posts shall be
          filled up except with the approval of the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure).
     xix)Implementation of existing instructions concerning abolition of posts should be ensured.
     xx) Purchase of new vehicles is banned until further orders, Exceptions will be allowed only for meeting
         the operational requirements of Defence, Central Para Military Forces, etc. New vehicles shall not
         be purchased even in replacement of condemned vehicles. Hiring of private vehicles from outside
         shall be limited to the number of vehicles condemned.

   Subject: Guidelines regarding inclusion of new Schemes in the Plan, enhancement of Five
            Year Plan/Annual Plan outlays, major changes in the scope and investment approval
            of the Plan Schemes, for the Central Ministries/Departments.

I. Proposals are often received from the Ministries for inclusion of new schemes in the Plan, enhancement
of Five Year Pian / Annual Plan outlays, major changes in scope of the schemes (including change in
objectives criteria and pattern of assistance / subsidies etc.). In this regard, inclusion of new schemes in
the Plan requires 'in principle' approval of Planning Commission before they are submitted for approval
to competent authorities as per existing delegation of powers. From the Eleventh Five Year Pian, the
following procedure would be adopted for inclusion of schemes / projects in the Plan.
a) Schemes that would not require 'In Principle' approval:
    Formulation of a Five Year Plan is a detailed exercise preceded by extensive deliberations "and
consultations by the Working Groups and Steering Committees. The existing schemes are examined by
the Working Groups / Steering Committees and revamping / modifications / strengthening are suggested
in many cases. The Steering Groups also recommend initiation of new schemes to fulfill specific objectives
after taking into account the plan priorities and the availability of resources.
(i) In case of the existing schemes which need to be continued in the next Plan, no `in principle' approval
would be required. This does not, however, mean that schemes can be continued from one Plan to
another without going through a rigorous Zero Based Budgeting exercise. In case a new component is to
be added to an existing scheme, this would be considered by the Steering Committee and recommended
for inclusion in the Five Year Plan. In case the component to be added is included in the Five Year Plan
with adequate allocation of resources, the additional component in existing Schemes would not require
'in principle' approval,
(ii) The new schemes /projects which are proposed to be taken up in the Plan have to be indicated in the
Plan Document and financial resources have to be fully provided for that scheme / project. In such cases,
'in principle' approval of the Planning Commission would not be required.
(iii) It may be noted that a mere mention of a project/scheme / additional component in an existing scheme
without adequate plan provision at the beginning of the Five Year Plan period would not be exempted
from the disciple of 'in principle' approval procedure. In brief, only the new schemes / projects/ additional
components that have been included in Five Year Plan with full provision of resources would not require
'in principle' approval.
b) Schemes that would require 'in principle' approval :
(i) Scheme / Project / additional component in an existing scheme which could not be included in the
Five Year Plan with adequate provision would require in principle approval of the Planning commission
before the Ministries / Departments seek sanction of the appropriate authorities for taking up the scheme/
project'.
(ii) For seeking 'in principle' approval, the Ministries / Departments should submit a detailed note to the
Planning Commission on the-justification for the new scheme / project with a broad outline of the proposed
scheme '/project
(iii) After obtaining 'in principle' approval, the Ministries / Departments shall conduct an exercise to find
resources for the proposed scheme /project / additional component in an existing scheme in consultation
with Planning Commission. This would require a detailed analysis of requirement and availability of funds
                                                     49
for the existing Schemes and Projects. In case requirement of funds is higher than the availability, the
Ministries / Department should undertake a reprioritization exercise in consultation with subject division in
Planning Commission and based on the result give details of commitments on on-going schemes / projects
along with the requirement and availability of funds for the proposed scheme / project additional component
in an existing scheme clearly spelling out the implications of the reprioritization (in terms of re-phasing of
on-going schemes and / or weeding out of schemes together with its impact on physical output).
(iv) After obtaining 'in principle' approval of Planning Commission (which would mean specific approval
of Secretary Planning Commission) and tying up financial resources, the Ministry / Department would
process the scheme /project / additional component in an existing scheme to obtain necessary approvals
as per existing delegation of powers through SFC/EFC/'PIB, as the case maybe.
II. Enhancement of Five Year Plan/Annual Plan outlays: The Five Year Plans are generally indicative
in nature. They are operationalized through Annual Plans. As such outlays to be provided by the Planning
Commission for the Annual Plan will take into consideration such adjustments and enhancement as may
be necessary. After the Annual Plans have been finalized and corresponding amounts provided in the
Budget of the Centra! Ministries, upward revision of more than 10% of the Budget Estimate at the Revised
Estimate stage, should be referred by the concerned Ministry to the Planning Commission and it is only
after the Planning Commission concurs that these should be taken up with the Ministry of Finance for
Supplementary Grants.
III. Change in Scope: Major changes in the scope of the schemes already included in the Plan, in terms
of change in objectives, coverage of population, criteria, pattern of subsidy, assistance, etc. should be
first referred to the Planning Commission for obtaining concurrence in the same manner as a new scheme
(item 1 above) before the revised scheme is processed for sanction by the competent authority. In case
of continuing CSS, approval for change in scope etc., may. be sought as per the existing procedure and
delegation of authority from the Planning Commission, as in other Plan Schemes.
IV. Sanction of the Scheme:
    All continuing and new schemes included in the Five Year Plan are to be sanctioned by the competent
authority (Board of Companies/Ministries/Ministry of Finance/CCEA) after the recommendations of the
respective body (DSC / SFC / EFC / PIB, etc.) as the case may be, in accordance with the existing
delegation of financial powers. These approvals should be processed by the Central Ministries only after
necessary Pian provisions are available in the Five Year Pian /Annual Plan, in case of new schemes,
these should be processed after the Planning Commission has concurred to their inclusion in the Plan.
V. Procedure for introduction of a new Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS);
    Approval of full Planning Commission is necessary for including a CSS in the Plan. For introduction of
a new Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS), which meets the criteria* laid down by the Committee of
National Development Council (NDC), the Ministries/Departments should first obtain an "in principle"
approval of the Planning Commission, (specific approval of Secretary, Planning Commission) giving
justification for introduction of the scheme and indicating :
(i) whether the existing Centrally Sponsored Schemes being run by the Ministry/Department have been
    reviewed and schemes identified for closure, weeding out and/ or merger with full details thereof;
(ii) whether an exercise has been carried out for avoidance of multiplicity of implementation machinery,
     and if so, results thereof;
(iii) Scheme wise details of number of posts sanctioned/created at the Ministry/Department, Central,
      State and District level;
(iv) Whether any rationalization exercise has been undertaken, and if so, details thereof;
(v) Are there existing schemes with similar objectives in the Ministry/Department of ether Central Ministries/
    Departments and / or schemes with similar objectives being implemented by the State Governments,
    and if so: details thereof and the justification for taking up the new scheme instead of strengthening /
    modifying the existing schemes;
                                                         50
(vi) The reasons for not implementing the scheme under State Plan with earmarked funds.

Subject: Lump sum Provision for North Eastern Region & Sikkrm

       Communications have been received from the Planning Commission regarding
certain shortcomings in lump sum provisions made for North Eastern Region & Sikkim
for the fiscal 2001-02. Based on the review of Ihe Budget Documents for 2001-02, certain
lacunae have been observed in the manner of depiction of the provision and the quantum
allocated. With a view to maintaining uniformity in depiction and in the quantum of
allocation the following is clarified for information and guidance:
(a)    10% of Central Plan allocations is to be earmarked for projects/schemes for
       the benefit of North-Eastern Region and Sikkim. It is observed that in case
       of a number of Ministries/ Departments the provision indicated is much
       lower than the stipulated percentage. It is reiterated that the provision made
       for the lump sum amount should be in accordance with the Budget Division
       letter of 28.01.00.,
(b)    the lump sum provision-of project/schemes for North Eastern Region &
       Sikkim should be made      under Major Head 2552     (in case of revenue
       expenditure) and Major Head 4552 (in case of capital expenditure). Certain
       Ministries/Department have incorrectly depicted the provision under other
       Major Heads. Changes in classification may be brought about by taking
       necessaiy supplementaries.
(c)    Except such Ministries/Departments that have been exempt from making
       provision for North Eastern Region & Sikkim, all others are to make such
       allocation.   Ministries/Department s like Water Resources,  Public works,
       Telecommunications,      Industrial  Policy  &   Promotion,  Small    Scale
       Industries & Agro & Rural Industries have not made any allocation and
       may clarify to this Ministry if they have been exempted from making
       allocation  for   North     Eastern  Region  &   Sikkim,  by the   Planning
       Commission.
This issues with the approval of Secretary (Expenditure).

Subject: Budgeting for/ Expenditure from Lump sum Provision for North Eastern
         Region & Sikkim


      In accordance with the decision of the Government, all Ministries/Departments, unless
specifically exempted from doing, so, are to make a lump sum provision of 10% of their central
plan allocation for projects / schemes in North Eastern Region and Sikkim. Over the years
Minislries/Departments have been making these provisions and incurring expenditure in the region
in terms of laid down decisions on the subject. However, certain divergence in practices have
been observed in the matter and, therefore, the following is clarified for guidance:

      (a) Lump sum provision for Revenue expenditure in the NE region should be provided for under
          Major Head 2552- "North Eastern Areas". Similarly lump sum provision for capital
          expenditure should be provided under Major Head 4552- "Capital Outlay on North
          Eastern Areas". It is important to make a realistic assessment of revenue and capital provision
          at the Budget formulation stage itself since reappropriation from revenue to capital and
          vice versa is not within the powers of the Ministries and will call for a supplementary
          provision. The practice of making provision for North Eastern Region and Sikkim should
          not be done under any other major head, as has been observed in the case of some Departments.

      (b) At the revised estimate stage, the lump sum provision should be 10% of the revised plan
          amount and depicted accordingly in SBEs. It has been observed that some Ministries/
          Departments have been showing a zero provision at the RE stage under the lump sum
          heads on the ground that the amounts due to be spent in the region have been duly
          reappropriated for Project/Schemes in the region. With a view to maintaining uniformity
          across Ministries/Departments it has been decided that all Ministries/
          Departments at the RE stage indicate lump sum provisions as 10% of the
          central plan RE amount unless exempt from making provisions for the
          region.

      (c) In some Ministries/Departments there are large savings being reported
          under Major heads 2552 and 4552 at the end of the year on account of inadequate
          expenditure in the region. It is impressed upon all Ministries/Departments that expenditure
          in the region should be in conformity with the 10% requirement as has been laid down.
                                                              53
          Large savings will be contrary to instructions issued by this Ministry on strict financial
          discipline, based on recommendations of the Public Accounts Commitfee.
      (d) I n s ta n c e s o f rea p p r o p r i a t i o n s b e i n g p r o p o s e d f r o m l u m p s u m p r o v i s i o n i n

          proposals will not ordinarily be entertained in this Ministry." Expenditure should be
          undertaken on projeet/schemes in the region itself.
      The above issues in consultation with the Department of Development of North
      Eastern Region.

                                           OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject:       Procedure for providing funds for development of North Eastern
               Region and Sikkim under `Plan' expenditure in Statement of Budget
               Estimates and Detailed Demands for Grants.


       At present, the funds for development of North Eastern Region and Sikkirn are being provided
for under the Major Heads `2552-North Eastern Region' for revenue expenditure and `4552-Capital
Outlay on North Eastern Region' for Capital expenditure under `plan' side. These are shown as
lumpsum provisions in the Statement of Budget Estimates and Detailed Demands for Grants of the
respective Minisiry/Department, initially. Such sums are subsequently re appropriated to the functional
heads of accounts for the purpose of incurring the expenditure. Reappropriations from the lumpsum
provision from the Major Heads `2552' and `4552' are carried out with the approval of Secretaries of
respective Ministry/Department, who have, been delegated powers for this purpose through this
Ministry's D.Q.No.2(66)-B(CDN)/2001 dated 12.6.2001.

2,     The above procedure has further been reviewed in the light of concerns expressed
by   few     Ministries/Departments        in   obtaining       the necessary      Parliament sanction in time,
through Supplementary Grants, during the course of the year, as either the break-up of
scheme-wise          expenditure        provided         under      `2552-etc '         and      `4552-etc'      are
not brought to the notice of Parliament through Detailed Demands for Grants or certain
items of expenditure, such as, grants-in-aid, subsidy, etc. attract the limits of New
Service/New Instrument of Service. This leads to delays in the release of budget
sanctions and implementation of programmes and schemes in the North Eastern Region.

3.     To    mitigate       such   difficulties,    it   has    been    decided     to    show      the   proposed
break-up of the lumpsum provision for development of North Eastern and Sikkim
Region      upto     object    head    level       corresponding       to   different    functional       rnajor/sub-
major/minor        heads,     indicating    the     details, and    depict     accordingly        in   the Detailed
                                                            `
Demands for Grants under the Major Head 2552-North Eastern Region' and the Major
Head `4552-Capital Outlay on North Eastern Region ' for eventual reappropriation. This
would facilitate informing Parliament about the nature of expenditure, end-beneficiary,
etc. After approval of the budget by Parliament, the expenditure provisions can be
transferred to the functional head for incurring expenditure through reappropriation by
exercise, of powers delegaied in this Ministry's D.O.letter Nb.F.2(66)-B(CDN)/2001
dated 12.6.2001.

Subject:      Procedure for providing funds for development of North Eastern
              Region and Sikkim under `Plan' expenditure in Statement of
              Budget Estimates and Detailed Demands for Grants.


             Attention is invited to this Ministry's Office Memorandum of even number dated
14.9.2005, wherein the procedure for depicting the detailed provisions upto object head level towards
development of North Eastern Region and Sikkim under `Plan' expenditure in Statement of Budget
Estimates and Detailed Demands for Grants was brought out.
2.             Certain Ministries/Departments have sought clarification on operation of the object
head `Loans and Advances' under the Capital Outlay head viz. `4552-Capital Outlay on North
Eastern Areas'. As the object head `Loans and Advances' is operated in the loan section, it has
been decided to .operate the Major Head `6552-Loans for North Easter Areas' out of the 10%
mandatory allocation (from GBS) towards development of NER in case funds are sought to be
provided as `loans'. Thus, the procedure enunciated in paragraph 3 of this Ministry's O.M. of even
number dated 14.9.2005 will, equally, be applicable to the Major Head `6552-Loans for North Eastern
Areas'. While reckoning the 10% mandatory allocation towards development of North Eastern
Areas and Sikkim, the provision made under the Major Head `6552-Loans for North Eastern Areas'
will also be taken into account.




                                                                        Additional Budget Officer

Dear Secretary,

         Finance Ministry has been receiving references from several Ministries/Departments regarding
difficulties in re-appropriation of funds from the lump-sum provision for schemes for the benefit
of North-Eastern Region and Sikkim to relevant functional heads.

2.     A s p e r t h e D e l e g a t i o n o f F i n a n c i a l P o w e r s R u l e s , c e r ta i n p o w e r s v e s t
with the Ministry of Finance for reappropriation of funds which can be met out of savings
available within the Grant. It has now been decided that as far as reappropriation of funds from
the lump-sum provision for schemes for benefit of North-Eastern Region and Sikkim are concerned,
the power to re-appropriate will be delegated to the Secretaries of the Ministries/
Departments, who will exercise this power in concurrence with their Financial Advisers. It may,
however, be stressed that this particular delegation of power is limited to the re-appropriation of
funds from lump-sum provision to the schemes for the benefit of schemes/programmes in the
North Eastern Region and Sikkim alone. It is, thus, the responsibility of the concerned Ministry/
Department to ensure that no re-appropriation from the lump sum provision for the North Eastern
Region and Sikkim is carried out for schemes which are not for the benefit of NER and Sikkim.

         With regards,
                                                                                                      Yours sincerely,



                                                                                                                Sd/.......

                                       OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject:    Sixteenth Report of the Public Accounts Committee (13th Lok Sabha) Union Government
           Appropriation Accounts (Civil) - 1996-97 -Measures for minimising "unspent balances".


        The undersigned is directed to invite a reference to the observations and recommendations made
by the Public Accounts Committee in para 13.1 of their above mentioned Report and to say that the Public
Accounts Committee while faking adverse note of the whopping saving of Rs. 44231.22 crore in the
grants pertaining to civil Ministries/Departments for the year 1996-97 has noted that out of (he above
saving, Rs. 29466.03 crore was on account of less drawal of 31 days Treasury Bills. Excluding these
Treasury Bills savings, the effective saving of Rs. 34765.3 3 crore constituted more than two (times the
supplementary grants of Rs.. 7326.86 crore and 3.5 per cent of the total provision of Rs. 420902.71 crore.
The Committee has further observed that there was aggregate savings (both Revenue and Capital Sections)
amounting to Rs. 3 1266.16 crore in the Voted portion mid Rs. 32965 .06 crore in the Charged portion.
2.      Taking serious view of this state, of affairs, the Public Accounts Committee has observed that
this indicates the lack of earnestness on the part of Ministries/Departments concerned reflecting on the
injudicious formulation of budget estimates/utilisation of funds, where such savings could have
been significantly reduced, if not avoided altogether, by making realistic budgetary project tons by the
concerned Ministries/Departments.
3.      In order, therefore, to avoid this recurring malady, all Ministries/Departments are advised that
existing mechanism of review, monitoring and control should be so geared as to make a
more careful formulation of plan/schemes having regard to ground realities and achievable targets and
also to make realistic assessment of funds.                The monitoringmechanism to oversee flow of
expenditure under various schemes should also be lightened in such a way as to keep a monthly watch
over flow of expenditure. In case there is likelihood of any savings, corrective action should be taken
immediately in surrender the saving well in advance as required under Rule 69 of Genera! Financial
Rules.



                                                                               (D.Swarup)

                                           Office Memorandum


Subject: Public Account Committee (14th Lok Sabha) -Recommendation in Para No. 14
         contained in Report No 17- Large-scale Unspent provisions - regarding.


         The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department's OM No.7(6)-B(R)/2001 dated 20th July,
2001 issued in the context of the Public Accounts Committee (13th Lok Sabha) in para 13.1 in their 16*
Report, taking adverse note of the large scale unspent provisions of Rs.44,231.22 crore in the Grants/
Appropriations operated by the Civil Ministries/Departments during the year 1996-97 and recommendation
thereon (copy enclosed). Further to that Report the PAC of 14th Lok Sabha has inter-alia recommended
in para 14 of 17th Report that the Ministry of Finance, being the nodal Ministry should impress upon all
the Ministries/Departments to make a thorough study of the cases where large scale (Rs.lOO crore or
more) unspent provisions have occurred and lay down appropriate guidelines for being followed by them
in this regard.
2,      In this context, attention is invited to Department of Expenditure's OM No. F.No. 5(6)/L&C/2006
dated 1st June 2006 regarding updated Scheme of' Integrated Financial Adviser'. Para 9 (i) of the above
mentioned OM enjoins upon Financial Advisors with the assistance of CCAs/CAs the responsibility of
bringing in more analytical inputs" into the budget formulation process to ensure better inter-
se programme/priortization and allocation within budget ceilings based on expenditure profiles of each
programme, assessment of outcomes and current status of projects. Such analysis is envisaged to ensure
a more realistic and efficient deployment of resources, reduce the reliance on supplementaries and
help significantly control injudicious formulation of budget estimates/utilization of funds where
"large savings'/unspent provisions can be reduced if not altogether avoided. Further in order to efficiently
re-deploy the savings anticipated to occur in the financial year, the Financial Advisers are required to
comply with the provisions in Rule 56 of the General Financial Rules 2005 for surrendering the savings to
Government in time as per the dates prescribed by the Ministry of Finance.
3.      It is expected that earlier instructions of this Ministry on the need for the individual Departments to
put in place effective mechanism for realistically assessing "their requirement of funds in a way that
would ward off the occurrence of unwarranted surrender of savings at a later date, may have
been implemented by Departments/Ministries concerned. The Public Accounts Committee" (PAC) in
Para 14 of the 17th Report relating to Union Government Appropriation Accounts (Civil) 1996-97 has
observed that "large scale unspent provisions under Grants/Appropriations by the civil Ministries/
Departments have become an almost recurring feature and the position is still to improve. The Committee
are inclined to conclude that the concerned Ministries/Departments have not made any serious attempts
to apply effective corrective measures in accordance with the Committee's recommendations". Therefore,
in compliance with the recommendation made by the PAC in this regard, the Financial Advisers are
requested to carry out a thorough study of the cases/schemes where large-scale unspent provisions
have occurred and take the following appropriate action so as to avoid recurrence of large-scale unspent
provisions in their respective Demands for Grants:
   (i)     Budget Estimates and Revised Estimates shall be prepared with reference to the measurable/
           monitorable commitments made in the Outcome Budget and fiscal discipline enforced in
           implementation of programmes/projects to ensure 'value for money';
                                                             60
     (ii)       Ministries/Departments may)' review the expenditure profile of each major schemes/
                programmes at regular intervals and apply the result of such analysis at the time of initial
                budget formulation so that a more realistic estimation of expenditure is made;
     (iii)      Ministries/Departments may, after carrying out such review, intimate this Ministry at the time

                                            OFFICE MEMORANDUM
             Subject :   Cash management system in Central Government -- modified exchequer
                         control based expenditure management and restrictions on expenditure during
                         the last quarter of the financial year.


       The undersigned is directed to refer to Office Memorandum of even number dated January 10,
2006 regarding introduction of exchequer control based expenditure with effect from April 1, 2006.
2.     Based on the working of the scheme, it has been decided to expand and modify
the Scheme as detailed below.
3.      The Modified           Cash    Management       System     seeks    to   achieve,    inter alia,   the
following objectives -


      (i)       Obtain greater evenness in the budgeted expenditure within the financial year, especially in
                respect of items entailing large sums of advance releases and transfers to corpus
                funds.
     (ii)       Reduce rush of expenditure during the last quarter, especially the last month of the financial
                year.
     (iii)      Reduce tendency of parking of funds.
     (iv)       Effectively monitor the expenditure pattern.
     (v)        Better planning of Indicative Market Borrowing Calendar of the Central Government.


4.      The Scheme shall apply in respect of 23 Demand for Grants listed in Annex I,
including 9 to which the Scheme is being extended with effect from financial year 2007-08.
5.    Financial Advisor would be responsible for the implementation of the modified
expenditure management system. He/she may nominate a nodal officer for the purpose.
6.     In respect of each Demand for Grant, Monthly Expenditure Plan (separately for
Plan and Non-Plan Expenditure) [MEP] would be worked out and included as an annex
to the Detailed Demand for Grant in respect of the said Demand for Grant. Suggested
format is at Annex-II.
7.    MEP would form the basis of Quarterly Expenditure Allocations [QEA]. The
Department/Ministries concerned may not issue cheques beyond the Quarterly
Expenditure Allocation [which would be equal to the sum of provisions under Monthly
Expenditure Plan], without prior consent of Ministry of Finance [Cash Management Cell,
Budget Division].
8.           The MEP may be finalized taking into account the following -
     (a)        MEP for the month of March may not exceed 15 per cent of the budgeted
                provision [Budget Estimate];
                                                    63
     (b)    MEP for the months of January-March may be so fixed that the QEA for the
            last quarter may not exceed 33 per cent of the budgeted provision; and
    (c)     The extant guidelines of Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure,
            including D.O.No.7(3)/2006/E.Coord, dated December 21, 2006.
9.      The exchequer control would apply cumulatively at the Demand for Grants level
only, i.e. inter se variations between months within a quarter, between plan and non-plan
and between schemes would be permissible, subject to statutory restrictions and extant
guidelines.
10.     Savings, if any, incurred under the Quarterly Expenditure Allocations would not
be available for automatic carry forward to the next quarter. The Department/Ministry
may, however, approach Ministry of Finance for revalidation of such savings through
modification in the Monthly Expenditure Plan and thereby Quarterly Expenditure
Allocation. Spill over in respect of Monthly Expenditure Plan, not inconsistent with
Quarterly      Expenditure Allocation         would     not require    prior revalidation from
Ministry of Finance but may be included in the quarterly modification.
11     Ministry of Finance would consider such requests for revalidation within a period
of 15 days of receipt of such request, failing which the request for revalidation would be
deemed to have been granted.
12     The Monthly Expenditure Plan and Quarterly Expenditure Allocations pertaining
to the 4 th .quarter of the financial year would be subsumed in the finalization of Revised
Estimate for the financial year.
13     The Monthly Expenditure Plan and Quarterly Expenditure Allocations may be
made in gross terms.
14     In addition to the above, it is advised that even in respect of Demand for Grants
not covered by the modified exchequer management system, the expenditure in the last
quarter of the financial year may not exceed 33 per cent of the Budget allocation for the
Demand for Grants. However, in the event of Revised Estimates being fixed lower than
the Budget Estimate, actual expenditure may be kept within the Revised Estimate.
           It is clarified that the above provision shall apply in the current financial year as well.
15     This Office Memorandum supersedes the Office Memorandum of even number
dated January 10, 2006.
16        Receipt of this Office Memorandum may kindly be acknowledged.

                 Dear Secretary,

                         I write to highlight some of the important initiatives taken for improvement in
                  public expenditure management and also to share the concerns and priorities that fie
                  ahead in this direction.

                  o       Revised Charter for Financial Advisers and (Chief) Controllers of Accounts was
                  issued vide OM no. 5(6)/L&C/2006 dated June 1. 2006 with a view to redefine their
                  role, responsibilities and accountability, authority and facilitate capacity-building.

                  Q      Economy instructions were issued vide No. 7(3) /2006 / E-Coord dt July 22,
                  2006, followed by suppiementaries /clarifications vide OM No. 7(3) /2006 / E-Coord
                  dated August 8. 2006: OM No. 23(2) /2006 / E-Coord dated August 18.2006. October
                  30. 2006 (Pt I, II & III) and OM No. 7(3) /2006 / E-Coord dt December 7. 2006.

                  o       Manuals on `Works', `Consultancy' and `Goods' have been finalized and circulated
                  to all Ministries/Departments. (August 31, 2006 and November 7, 2006)

                  o      The Finance Secretary impressed upon the need of strengthening Internal Audit
                  in the Ministries/Departments, vide his D.O letter no. 3(ll)/06 (L&C) dated September
                  4. 2006 and the C&AG of India was requested to constitute a Task Force to benchmark
                  the status of internal audit and suggest roadmap of reforms. The report of the Task
                  Force has recently been received.

                  o      Revised guidelines were issued for preparation of Outcome Budget 2007-08
                  vide OM no. F. No.2(l)Pers/E-Coord/OB/2005 dated December 12. 2006 merging the
                  performance budget and the outcome budget into a single document; requiring the
                  Ministries to link release of funds with progress in achieving monitorable physical
                  progress and putting in place formal monitoring mechanisms to monitor progress against
                  commitments made in the Outcome Budget.

                  2.      During pre-Budget meetings, the need of observance of 33% ceiling on
                  expenditure during the last quarter; reduction in unspent balances and outstanding
                  utilization certificates; and observance of conditionalities, rules and procedures in
                  incurring expenditure has been repeatedly emphasized. While the follow up action on
                  the above will continue, it is felt that the following initiatives should be taken at the
                  earliest.
                                                    67
3.      Further modernization of financial management system should be given a high
priority, considering the increased level of public expenditure in a decentralized manner.
The Financial Advisers should pro-actively review the status of e- banking and e-
procurement in the respective Ministries/Departments and apprise us on the achievements
thereon.

4.     Sound expenditure management begins with control and monitoring of commitments
to    expenditures.     Ministries/Departments        may consider putting  reporting
systems in place to give the Secretary a regular feedback on build-up of commitments
such as the following: (We look forward to specific suggestions in other areas-where
formal systems of commitment tracking may be introduced.)

(i)     Unpaid bills for goods/services received.

(ii)    Un-discharged liability under contracts that prevents space for taking up new activities,

(iii)   Carry forward liability of funds requirements to complete on-going works that would be a
        priority charge on future budgets and would reduce the scope of undertaking new projects.

5.      Avoidance of rush of expenditure towards the end of the financial year continues to
be an area of concern. Presently, not more than one-third of the Budget Estimates may be
spent in the last quarter of the financial year. It is considered necessary to fine tune this
further for controlling expenditure in the last month of the year. Accordingly, it is being
stipulated that during the month of March, the expenditure should be limited to 15%
of the Budget Estimates. Detailed instructions are being issued by the Budget Division.
All the Ministries/Departments would be required to adhere to these guidelines.

6.     It is necessary to ensure that as far as practicable the cheques issued in a financial
year are encashed within the financial year. Further, all cheques / bank drafts should be
delivered to the payees or dispatched on or before 31 st March. Exact measures to be taken
may be decided locally. These may include a combination of (a) surrender of
chequebooks; (b) certified reports to be given to higher authorities by 31 st March on last
cheque/draft issuedydispatched/delivered; and (c) a ban on issue of cheques on 31 st March.
It is expected that use of cheques should in any case decline, with increasing resort to
electronic transfer of funds to payees. The Ministries/Departments are advised to review
their payment systems with these considerations in mind and have appropriate internal
checks in place.

7.     It is also considered desirable that in the last month of the year, payments
may be made only for the goods and services actually procured and for reimbursement
of expenditure already incurred. Hence, no amount should be released in advance (in the last
month) with the exception of the following:

(i)     Advance payments to contractors under terms of duly executed contracts as the Government
        would not renege on its legal, contractual obligations,

(ii)    Any loans or advances to Government servants etc. or private individuals as a measure of
        relief and rehabilitation as per service conditions or on compassionate grounds.

(iii)   Any other exceptional case with the approval of the Financial Adviser. However, a list of such
        cases may be sent by the FA to the Department of Expenditure by 30th April for information.
                                                   68
8.      Considering substantial improvement in the ways and means position of the~States
and the pressing need to reduce the prevalence of unspent balances, regular recipients of
Central budgetary support may be encouraged to switch over to claiming frequent
reimbursement. To assist them, a. rolling advance may be initially given. We would
liberally support pilot projects and selected schemes for coverage under such
reimbursement-based financing system.

9.     It has been observed that with convergence and consolidation of Government
intervention into major programmes, budget outlays for these have increased substantially.
However, the schemes guidelines and practices regarding release of funds have not been
modified to allow for more staggered releases. This results in uneven flow and front-
loading of expenditures. Ministries/Departments should review existing arrangements in
this regard and ensure that wherever schemes entail advance releases, and budget
allocations are large, such advances should appropriately be released in at least four
installments during the year subject also to fulfillment of the conditionalities attached
to the further release of such funds. This norm will be applicable with effect from
2007-08. Particular attention is invited to stipulations contained in the `Outcome Budget
circular ' (OM no.' F. No.2(l)Pers/E-Coord/OB/2005 dated December 12, 2006)
requiring the Ministries to link release of funds with progress in achieving monitorable
physical progress against commitments made in the Outcome Budget.

                                                                       Yours sincerely,

Subject:- Government Guarantees - Preparation of Database.

        The enactment of the Fisca] Responsibility & Budget Management Act, 2003 has re-emphasised
the need for effecting measures towards fiscal adjustment and consolidation together with the need
for greater transparency in the fiscal process. The C&AG of India has also established the Government
Accounting Standards Advisory Board (GASAE) for the Union and the States with a view to establishing
and improving standards of governmental accounting and financial reporting and enhance
accountability mechanism. As part of the effort of the government to address a range of fiscal issues
as also to provide uniform and complete disclosure it has been decided to review the existing reporting
methodology with regard to government guarantees.

2.     It is accordingly requested that in order to create a database, information in the enclosed
proforma (Annexure-IT) may be furnished to this Ministry in respect of the cases, under your Ministry.
The information may be furnished after, thoroughly scrutinising each case and with the approval of
the Financial Advisor so that correctness of the information furnished is ensured.

3.     It would be seen that the proforma enclosed, inter alia, provides for 'classification
of the guarantees in terms of class and sectors vide Col. 7 and 8. Class and sectors have
been listed in Annexure I for guidance and ready reference. While filling the proforma
the sectors to which guarantee is provided may be indicated in full. In case of the class
only the legend as indicated against each class may be used. %

4.      It is further requested that the information may be furnished immediately in the

practice. In cases of guarantees where the data undergoes a change from the previous
quarter, the same may be suitably highlighted in the forwarding letter.

                                         OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:    Preparation of Asset Register, as required under the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget
            Management Rules, 2004
1.   As the Ministries of Agriculture etc. are aware, an Asset Register is required to be maintained in
     prescribed format under the FISCAL Responsibility and Budget Management Rules, 2004 in
     order that appropriate disclosure about the position of assets may be made in the Budget 2006-07
     onwards . The format of the disclosure statement is enclosed for ready reference. It is requested
     that necessary action may please be taken to prepare the asset register showing the status as on
     31 March, 2005. The following clarifications may please be noted to facilitate this task
      The Asset Register is required to be prepared only in respect of assets owned by the Central
           Government. This would by implication exclude the assets belonging to autonomous bodies
           and public sector undertakings even though the assets were created with the financing support
           provided by the central government by way of grants-in-aid.
      The financing by way of loans end equity investment will, however, be shown   the financial
                                                                                             AS
           assets of the Central government for which detailed accounts are being maintained by
           the concerned Accounts Officers.
      The exercise to prepare the Asset Register is expected to be completed in-house, without
           hiring any outside professionals because the information as to be compiled based on the book
           value of assets that should be available in the accounts and departmental records. No
           assessment of current market value is required to be done. Similarly, no adjustment need
           necessarily be done for depreciation of assets.
      The Departmental Estates Officers may provide the information in respect of government lands
           and buildings under their charge. In respect of such government lands and buildings where the
           Estates management is not directly, being handled by the particular Ministry/Department, the
           information to complete the asset register will be centrally collected from the Central Public
           Works Department. CPWD may send the information to concerned Ministries/Departments
           for cross checking and verification before finalization and intimation to us.
      It would be desirable to have an exhaustive inventory of assets with full reconciliation of physical
           balances with the financial accounts as early as possible. However, pending full reconciliation ,
           it would be helpful if initially the opening balances, say as on 1st April, 2004 or before as
           administrative expedient, are taken from financial records and subsequent acquisition/disposals
           of assets are fully accounted for both physically and financially.
2.   It may be helpful to utilize this exercise as an opportunity to have a proper stock-taking of departmental
     assets and to keep suitable explanatory remarks on the present state of the economic life of asset, its
     current usage, potential for better alternative uses, disposal options so that there is improved asset
     management by drawing attention to optimum utilization, maintenance and accounting of assets.

                                        OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject: Revised Guidelines on Financial Limits to be observed in determining cases relating
        to `New Service'/`New instrument of Service'.
        In accordance with the commitment made in the Fiscal Policy Strategy Statement (Budget 2005-06)
under the mandate of the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management (FRBM) Legislation and in pursuance
of the approval of Public Accounts Committee (2005-2006) in the twenty-third report (Fourteenth Lok Sabha)
on the proposal for review of Financial Limits to be observed in determining the cases relating to `NEW
SERVICE'/`NEW INSTRUMENT OF SERVICE' for reappropriation of funds (Annex), which has the
concurrence of the C&AG, the following revised guidelines for re-appropriation of funds are hereby conveyed,
in modification of this Ministry's Office Memorandum No. F.7 (15)-B(RA)/82 dated 13th April, 1982.
2.     Definition of the terms `New Service'/`New Instrument of Service' and its application:
       (i) `New Service': As appearing in article 115(1)(a) of the Constitution of India, this has been held
            as referring to expenditure arising out of a new policy decision, not brought to the notice of
            Parliament earlier, including a new activity or a new form of investment.
       (ii) `New Instrument of Service': Refers to relatively large expenditure arising out of important
             expansion of an existing activity.
       (iii) While using these terms and applying the financial limits as indicated in the Annex, it needs to
             be noted that no expenditure can be incurred from the Consolidated Fund of India on a `New
             Service'/'New Instrument of Service' without prior approval of Parliament through supplementary
             demands for grants. Further, the determination of these financial limits will be with reference
             to Primary Unit of Appropriation.
       (iv) Where in an emergent case of `New Service'/`New Instrument of Service' it is not possible to
            wait for prior approval of Parliament, the Contingency Fund of India can be drawn upon for
            meeting the expenditure pending its authorisation by Parliament. Recourse to this arrangement
            should normally be taken only when Parliament is not in session. Such advances are required
            to be recouped to the Fund by obtaining a Supplementary Grant in the immediate next session
            of Parliament. However, when Parliament is in session, a Supplementary Grant should
            preferably be obtained before incurring any expenditure on a `New Service'/ `New Instrument
            of Service'. That is to say, recourse to Contingency Fund of India should be taken only in
            cases of extreme urgency; in such cases the following procedure recommended by the Sixth
            Lok Sabha Committee on Papers Laid on the Table in their 4Ih Report should be observed:
           "As far as possible, before such withdrawal is made, the concerned Minister may make a
           statement on the floor of the Lok Sabha for information giving details of the amount and the
           scheme for which the money is needed. In emergent cases, however, where it is not possible
           to inform the Members in advance, the withdrawal may be made from the Contingency Fund
           and soon thereafter a statement may be laid on the Table of the Lok Sabha for the information
           of the Members".
           It has been suggested by the Rajya Sabha Secretariat that the above procedure may also be
           observed in Rajya Sabha.
                                                    81
3.      Checks to be observed by the Ministries/Departments to ensure compliance of the provisions
of this Office Memorandum are as under:
      (i) By Integrated Finance Division/Budget Unit: A specific certificate should be recorded in each
          case involving augmentation of sanctioned provision on receipt of related proposals, to the
          effect that the proposed augmentation attracts/does not attract financial limits of `New Service'/
          `New Instrument of Service'.
      (ii) By PAOs: Each expenditure sanction to be examined by PAOs from the `New Service'/ `New
           Instrument of Service' angle keeping in view the financial limits indicated in the Annex.
      (iii) Where any doubt arises about the application of financial limits of `New Service'/ `New Instrument
            of Service', the PAO would seek decision from CCA/FA of appropriate jurisdiction.
4.    Circumstances for obtaining Supplementary grants for expenditure qualifying as `New
Service'/ `New Instrument of Service' and the reporting procedure thereof are as follows:
      (i) if sufficient savings are available within the same section of the relevant grants for meeting
          additional expenditure to the extent mentioned in column 2 of the annex, re-appropriation can
          be made, subject to report to Parliament,
      (ii) The Report to Parliament should ordinarily be made through the ensuing batch of Supplementary
            Demands for Grants, failing which by adding an Annex in the Detailed Demands of the Ministry/
            Department for the ensuing year.
      (iii) A suitable write-up of such cases where possible, may also be made in the Notes on Demands
            for Grants of the Ministry/Department.
      (iv) Mere depiction of augmented provisions in the Revised Estimates included in the Demands
           for Grants will not be adequate to meet the requirement to incur expenditure. In cases where
           the financial limits of `New Service'/ `New Instrument of Service' are attracted, approval of
           Parliament may be obtained for incurring such expenditure through supplementary demands
           for grants.
      (v) The provisions in the `Vote on Account' are not intended to be used for expenditure on any `New
          Service'. In cases of urgency, expenditure on a `New Service' during Vote on Account period
          can, therefore, be incurred only by obtaining an advance from the Contingency Fund in the
          manner recommended by the Sixth Lok Sabha Committee on the Papers Laid on the Table
          already referred to in para 2(iv) of this OM. Such advances will be resumed to the Contingency
          Fund on enactment of Appropriation Act in respect of expenditure for the whole year.
5.    Exceptions:
      (i) Having regard to the volume and nature of Government transactions, it is not possible to list
          out all such cases which are not attracted by `New Service'/ `New Instrument of Service' limits.
          Broadly, however, expenditure on normal activities of Government (such as normal
          administrative expenditure - including that resulting from re-organization of Ministries/
          Departments, holding of conferences, seminars, exhibitions, surveys, feasibility studies, etc.
          assistance to foreign Governments, contributions to international bodies and fulfillment of
          Government guarantee on its invocation) are not attracted by the limits of `New Service'/`New
          Instrument of Service'.
      (ii) Transfers to State and Union Territory Governments are also exempt from these limits provided
           the scheme is not new.
      (iii) Further, these limits are applicable only to expenditure which is subject to Vote of Parliament.
                                                    82
6.     Doubtful cases:
        In case of disagreement between the Integrated Finance Wing and Pay and Accounts Office, the
Ministry/ Department may send a self-contained communication to the Budget Division, Ministry of Finance
bringing out the specific point of doubt incorporating their Financial Adviser's views thereon. The decision
taken by the Budget Division in the matter will be final.
7.     Conclusion:
While agreeing to the revision of norms for re-appropriation of funds as annexed, the Public Accounts
Committee in its twenty-third report (Fourteenth Lok Sabha) has concluded by stating as under:
        "The committee also expects the Financial Advisors of the Ministries/Departments to ensure that
there is no violation in implementation of the said revised norms for re-appropriation of funds and any
slackness in complying with the said norms is strictly dealt with".

                                        OFFICE MEMORANDUM

        Sub:   Expenditure Management Economy Measures and Rationalization of Expenditure.

                                                   ******


         Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure has been issuing austerity instructions from time
to time with a view to containing non-developmental expenditure and releasing additional resources for
priority schemes. The last set of instructions was issued on 31st May 2012, 1st November 2012 and 14th
November 2012. Such measures are intended at promoting fiscal discipline, without restricting the
operational efficiency of the Government. In the context of the current fiscal situation, there is a need to
continue to rationalize expenditure and optimize available resources. With this objective, the following
measures for fiscal prudence and economy will come into immediate effect:-

2.1     Cut in Non-Plan expenditure:
        For the year 2013-2014, every Ministry/Department shall effect a mandatory 10% cut in non-
        Plan expenditure excluding interest payment, repayment of debt, Defence capital, salaries, pension
        and the Finance Commission grants to the States. No re-appropriation of funds to augment the
        Non-Plan heads of expenditure on which cuts have been imposed, shall be allowed during the
        current fiscal year.

2.2 Seminars and Conferences:
(i)     Utmost economy shall be observed in organizing conferences/ Seminars/workshops. Only such
        conferences, workshops, seminars, etc. which are absolutely essential, should be held wherein
        also a 10% cut on budgetary allocations shall be effected.
(ii)    Holding of exhibitions/seminars/conferences abroad is strongly discouraged except in the case of
        exhibitions for trade promotion.
(iii)   There will be a ban on holding of meetings and conferences at five star hotels.

2.3     Purchase of vehicles:
        Purchase of vehicles is banned until further orders, except against condemned vehicles.

2.4     Domestic and Foreign Travel:
(i)     All officers are to travel in economy class only for domestic travel, except officers in the Apex
        Scale who may travel in executive class. Officers may travel by entitled class for international
        travel, however officers in Apex scale may travel only by business class. In all cases of air travel,
        only the lowest fare air tickets of the entitled class are to be purchased/ procured. No companion
        free ticket on domestic/ international travel is to be availed of. The existing instructions regarding
        travel on Leave Travel Concession (LTC) would continue.
                                                    88
(ii)    It would be the responsibility of the Secretary of each Ministry/Department to ensure that foreign
        travel is restricted to most necessary and unavoidable official engagements based on functional
        necessity, and that extant instructions are strictly followed.
(iii)   Where travel is unavoidable, it will be ensured that officers of the appropriate level dealing with
        the subject are sponsored instead of those at higher levels. The size of the delegation and the
        duration of visit will be kept to the absolute minimum.
(iv)    Proposals for participation in study tours, workshops/ conferences/ seminars/presentation of papers
        abroad at Government cost will not be entertained except those that are fully funded by sponsoring
        agencies.
(v)     Travel expenditure (including FTE) should be so regulated as to ensure that each Ministry remains
        within the allocated budget for the same. Re-appropriation proposals on this account would not
        be approved.

2.5     Creation of Posts:
(i)     There will be a total ban on creation of Plan and Non-Plan posts.
(ii)    Posts that have remained vacant for more than a year are not to be revived except under very
        rare and unavoidable circumstances and after seeking clearance of Department of Expenditure.


3.      Observance of discipline in fiscal transfers to States, Public Sector Undertakings and
        Autonomous Bodies at Central/State/Local level:
3.1     Release of Grant-in-aid shall be strictly as per provisions contained in GFRs and in Department
        of Expenditure's OM No.7(1)/E.Coord/2012, dated 14.11.2012.
3.2     Ministries/Departments shall not transfer funds under any Plan schemes in relaxation of conditions
        attached to such transfers (such as matching funding).
3.3     The State Governments are required to furnish monthly returns of Plan expenditure - Central,
        Centrally Sponsored or State Plan - to respective Ministries/Departments along with a report on
        amounts outstanding in their Public Account in respect of Central and Centrally Sponsored
        Schemes. This requirement may be scrupulously enforced.
3.4     The Chief Controller of Accounts must ensure compliance with the above as part of pre-payment
        scrutiny.

4.      Balanced Pace of Expenditure:
4.1     As per extant instructions, not more than one-third (33%) of the Budget Estimates may be spent
        in the last quarter of the financial year. Besides, the stipulation that during the month of March
        the expenditure should be limited to 15% of the Budget Estimates is reiterated. It may be
        emphasized here that the restriction of 33% and 15% expenditure ceiling is to be enforced both
        scheme-wise as well as for the Demands for Grant as a whole, subject to RE ceilings. Ministries/
        Departments which are covered by the Monthly Expenditure Plan (MEP) may ensure that the
        MEP is followed strictly.
4.2     It is also considered desirable that in the last month of the year payments may be made only for
        the goods and services actually procured and for reimbursement of expenditure already incurred.
        Hence, no amount should be released in advance (in the last month) with the exception of the
        following:
        (i)      Advance payments to contractors under terms of duly executed contracts so that
                 Government would not renege on its legal or contractual obligations.
        (ii)     Any loans or advances to Government servants etc. or private individuals as a measure of
                 relief and rehabilitation as per service conditions or on compassionate grounds.
        (iii)    Any other exceptional case with the approval of the Financial Advisor. However, a list of
                 such cases may be sent by the FA to the Department of Expenditure by 30th April of the
                 following year for information.
                                                   89
4.3    Rush of expenditure on procurement should be avoided during the last quarter of the fiscal year
       and in particular the last month of the year so as to ensure that all procedures are complied with
       and there is no infructuous or wasteful expenditure. FA's are advised to specially monitor this
       aspect during their reviews.

5.     No fresh financial commitments should be made on items which are not provided for in the
       budget approved by Parliament.

6.     The instructions would also be applicable to autonomous bodies.
7.     Compliance
       Secretaries of the Ministries/Departments being the Chief Accounting Authorities as per Rule 64
       of GFR shall be fully charged with the responsibility of ensuring compliance of the measures
       outlined above. Financial Advisors shall assist the respective Departments in securing compliance
       with these measures and also submit an overall report to the Minister-in-Charge and to the
       Ministry of Finance on a quarterly basis regarding various actions taken on these measures/
       guidelines.

       Subject: Restructuring of Centrally Sponsored Schemes in the 12th plan - approval of the
               Cabinet


    The undersigned is directed to inform that following proposals for restructuring the Centrally Sponsored
Schemes under the 12th Plan have been approved:

1. The existing CSS/ACA Schemes in the Twelfth Five-Year Plan have been re- structured into 66
Schemes, including Flagship Programmes. The list of 66 schemes approved by the Cabinet is enclosed
at Annex-I. It may be mentioned that in the current financial year, budgetary provision has been made for
137 CSS and 5 scheme based ACA schemes. The indicative mapping of these schemes into 66 CSS,
placed at Annex-IA has also been approved. The list of the CSS components which may be implemented
as Central sector schemes is at Annex-II.

2. In the 12th plan, no new CSS other than those which have been included in the list of 66 CSS would
be introduced. For the 66 CSS/ACA/Flagship schemes, implementing Ministries/Departments should
obtain scheme wise approval of the Competent Authority in case guidelines of the scheme are proposed
to be changed for implementation in the 12th plan. Where no specific guidelines are to be changed and
the schemes have been merged into Umbrella schemes, implementing Ministries/Departments may issue
instructions to that effect. It is further proposed that where introduction of an additional component within
an existing Umbrella scheme or modification of an `existing component is sought, the level of approval
would be determined by the extant financial delegation as if the said component is a stand- alone scheme.

3. If a new CSS is proposed to be introduced, they may ordinarily be considered only at the stage of
mid - term appraisal of the 12th Plan. In addition, such proposals may be first placed before the empowered
Inter-Ministerial Committee co-chaired by Secretary Planning Commission and Secretary Expenditure
and with representatives of the Administrative Ministry after consultation with State Governments.

4.     Out of the 66 approved CSS, 17 would be implemented as Flagship Programmes as listed at Annexure
Ill.

5. At least 10% of the outlay of each CSS/ACA/Flagship Scheme would be kept as Flexi funds. In this
regard, Planning Commission would be issuing guidelines separately.

6. All Plan schemes under which Central Assistance is provided to the States are to be classified and
budgeted together as Central Assistance to State Plans with effect from 2014-15 {BE) onwards.
                                                    91
7. State specific guidelines for each CSS/ACA/Flagship scheme may be formulated for which an lnter-
Ministerial Committee under the Co-chairpersonship of the. Secretary {Planning Commission) and
Secretary (Department of Expenditure) with representative of the State Government concerned is to be
constituted. A notification forming the aforesaid Committee is being issued separately.

8. For each new CSS/ACA/Flagship scheme, at least 25% of funds may be contributed by the General
Category States and 10% fund by the Special Category State's including States of J&K, Himachal Pradesh
and Uttarakhand.

9. For all CSS/ACA schemes funds will be placed with the Administrative Ministries for transfer to the
States through the Consolidated Fund of the States concerned. This mode of transfer may be implemented
