                                   BUDGET CIRCULAR 2015-2016
      Guidelines for the Ministries/Departments for framing the Revised Estimates for 2014-2015 and
Budget Estimates for 2015-2016 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 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 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 21st November, 2014. 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 2015- 2016. 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, 2014. 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. 31.3.2014. 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 31.3.2014 company-wise, (ii) BE 2014-2015 (iii) RE 2014-2015 (iv) BE 2015-2016 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 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 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, 2014 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 be held in October/November 2014. 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 2014-15. Similarly schemes that are not to continue beyond the year 2014-15, should not be included for BE 2015-16. 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 Plan allocations 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 2014-15 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 2015-2016 by 25.1.2015 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 unutilized/ unaccounted for etc. with a view to minimizing 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 there for, 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 2014-2015 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 2014-2015 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 2014-2015 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) :- The Plan Component for BE (2015-16) shall also be discussed in the mid-year review meeting. The format for sending the Plan expenditure proposal is being issued separately. Accordingly, the RE 2014-15 and BE 2015-16 for both Plan and 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: a) Latest actuals during current year; b) Actuals for the same period in preceding year; c) Actuals in past year/previous years; d) Appropriations/reappropriations ordered/contemplated during remaining part of the year, or any sanction to expenditure issued/proposed to be issued during the remaining part of the year; e) Any other relevant factor which may be foreseen at the time of framing the RE 2014- 15/BE 2015-16; f) Actual expenditure upto September, 2013 of BE 2013-14 as also actuals upto September 2014 of BE 2014-2015 may supplement the process of finalisation of RE 2014-15. 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 (proposed): (i) Effect of additional installments of dearness allowance sanctioned this year and the net additionality asked therefor (that is, after setting off against savings, if any). (ii) Estimates of committed expenditure, which is being provided for the first time as Non-Plan in RE 2014-2015 and thereafter in BE 2015-2016. (iii) Items of expenditure, which are matched by or linked to receipts like externally aided projects, bonus share, cesses etc. (iv) Provision included in respect of vacant posts. (v) As indicated in Para 3.2.11, a separate statement indicating (a) Plan provision made scheme/project-wise in BE 2014-2015 against externally aided projects, (b) expenditure incurred up to August/September 2014, (c) amount for which claims have been lodged with the office of Controller of Aid Accounts & Audit, DEA seeking reimbursement from the external donor and (d) requirement in RE 2014-2015.

(vii) Unspent balances as on 31st March, 2014 with all grantee/loanee bodies (other than the States) in respect of all bodies which received more than ` 1 crore grant/loan during 2013-2014. (Separate details for each body). (viii) Unspent balances, State-wise and scheme-wise, as on 31st March, 2014, in respect of all schemes. (ix) Status of pending utilisation certificates. 8 (x) Explanations for variations between BE 2014-15 and RE 2014-15 (proposed) may be given scheme-wise separately. Any increase/decrease in BE 2015-16 (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) 20th October, 2014 in respect of the U.T. Demands and Non-plan Demands (except Defence Services and Defence Pensions). (ii) 22nd October, 2014 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 2014-2015, BE 2015-2016 (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 2014-15 and RE 2014-2015; and also between RE 2014-2015 and BE 2015-2016 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 2014-2015 and BE 2015-2016; and Plan RE 2014-2015 should be filled and forwarded to Budget Division. The Plan ceilings shall be communicated by this Division separately after ascertaining the final receipt position. Once the annual Plan allocations are communicated by this Division, SBE (final) for the Plan expenditure in BE 2015-16 should be forwarded. 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, 2014; without waiting for the approval by the respective Commissions. SBE (final) for Non-Plan RE 2014-2015 and BE 2015-2016 and Plan RE 2014-2015 may be sent as soon as the estimates are approved by the Commissions. SBE (final) for Plan expenditure 2015-2016 may be sent as soon as the Plan allocations are received. 3.10 Office of the Comptroller & Auditor General of India may send the SBE to Budget Division by October 22, 2014. These may be supported by actuals as indicated in preceding paragraph along with item-wise actuals for 2013-2014, as also actuals upto September, 2013 of BE 2013-14 and actuals upto September, 2014 of BE 2014-2015. 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 communicated in the form in Appendix VI. Ministries/Departments should not send once again the entire SBE for this purpose. 9 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 under Plan 2015-16. 3.13 The budget provision towards `Works Outlay' is reflected in the Demands for Grants for the year 2014-15 (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.104-Department of Urban Development and Demand No.105-Public Works) in BE 2015-16. 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 2014-2015. 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 2014-2015, the B.E. and R.E. 2014-2015 (and in the Detailed Demands for Grants, the Actuals 2013-2014 also) in respect of these items may be shown along with the BE 2015-2016 in the relevant Demands for Grants (for 2015-2016) 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 2015-2016 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: (i) The Demands for Grants `Pensions' is administered and controlled by the Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO), Department of Expenditure, New Delhi, as referred to in para 1.5 above.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS RELATING TO ESTIMATES TO BE INCLUDED IN COMPOSITE DEMANDS CONTROLLED BY BUDGET DIVISION 5.1 Interest Payments: Estimates for interest on provident fund balances of employees, including Group `D' employees, and on various deposits in the Public Account including Reserve Funds, deposits of Commissioners of Payments and other items for inclusion in the Appropriation "Interest Payments" will be furnished by the Controllers of Accounts and by the Ministry of Railways (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.

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 2015-16 (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 2015-2016, 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 2013-2014 and no provision has been made in B.E. 2014-2015, R.E. 2014-2015 and B.E. 2015-2016, 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 2013-2014." 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 2014-2015, the B.E. and R.E. 2014-2015 (and in the Detailed Demands for Grants, the Actuals 2013-2014 also) in respect of these items may be shown along with the BE 2015-2016 in the relevant Demands for Grants 2015-2016 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 2015-2016 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 12 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). Provisions 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 above in BE 2015-2016 (Appendix IX -C). (iv) Schedule showing provisions included in BE 2015-2016 for payment of grants- in- aid to non-Government bodies. (Appendix IX-D). (v) Statement showing details of individual works and projects costing ` 5 crore or above included in BE 2015-2016 (Appendix IX-E). (vi) Statement showing revised cost estimates of projects of public sector enterprises and departmental undertakings (Appendix IX-F). (vii) Statement showing transfer or gift of Government properties of value exceeding ` 5 lakhs to non-Government bodies (Appendix IX-G). (viii) Statement showing contributions to International bodies provided for in the Budget Estimates for 2015-2016 (Appendix IX-H). This statement will include only items of contribution, membership fees to international bodies, which constitute revenue expenditure. Subscriptions to international bodies, which represent investments and are accounted for in the Capital section, are to be excluded from it. (ix) Statement showing guarantee given by the Central Government and outstanding as on 31.3.2014(Appendix IX-I). This should not be at variance with the statement of guarantee shown in Receipt Budget [see paragraph 10.2]. Guarantees given by the Government on loans from foreign sources contracted by other bodies, PSEs, etc., the outstanding loan amount to which the guarantee relate, should be converted at the exchange rate prevalent on 31.3.2014, which may be obtained from the Controller of Aid Accounts and Audit of this Ministry, instead of the historical value. It may be noted that if the Government guarantee is for repayment of the principal and payment of interest, the sums guaranteed and outstanding as on 31.3.2014 should cover both. It may be ensured that the totals shown in this statement should exactly correspond with the summary statement as at paragraph 10.2. (x) Statement showing grants-in-aid exceeding ` 5 lakhs (recurring) or ` 10 lakhs (non- recurring) actually sanctioned to private institutions/organisations/individuals during the year 2013-2014 (Appendix IX-J).

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 49 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.

All Heads of Public Sector Enterprises 50 Annex-B Government of India Planning Commission Yojana Bhavan, Sansad Marg, New Delhi-110 001 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 51 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.

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). Deputy Secretary (Budget) All FA's. 54 Annex-D F. No. 2(66)-B(CDN)/2001(Vol II) Ministry of Finance & Company Affairs Department of Economic Affairs (Budget Division) Office Memorandum New Delhi, the 13 September, 2002 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. 55 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 t h e N o r t h E a s t e r n R e g i o n a n d S i k k i m to O t h e r P r o j e c ts / S c h e m e s o u ts i d e t h e r e g i o n h a v e b e e n r e c e i v e d i n t h i s M i n i s t r y. It i s r e i t e r a t e d t h a t s u c h 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. Deputy Secretary (Budget) All Financial Advisers. 56 Annex-E N o. F. 2 (66)- B(CDN)/2001 Ministry of Finance Department of Economic Affairs ( Budget Division ) New Delhi, 14th September, 2005. 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. 57 (From pre-page) 4. This procedure becomes operative from the year 2006-07 onwards. 5. This has the approval of Secretary (Expenditure).

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. 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.

As per the Delegation of Financial Powers Rules, certain powers vest 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.

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.

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'; 62 (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 of finalization of Revised Estimates of the current year the possible savings in their Grant for re-deployment of resources to other priority sectors; (iv) In case any savings are identified even after finalization of Revised Estimates of the year," surrender of such savings may be intimated to this Ministry immediately; 4, All Ministries/Departments are requested to note the above instructions for strict compliance.

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]; 65 (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.

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.

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. 69 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. 70 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 Ce ntr al bud geta ry sup por t m ay be enc oura ged to sw itc h o ver to cl aimi ng f re que nt reimbu rsement. To assist t hem, a. ro lling adva nce may be initially given. W e 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 f low 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 f ulfillment of the conditionalities attached to th e f urth er rel eas e o f s uch f un ds. Th is nor m w ill be app lic abl e w ith eff ect f r om 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 date d 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.

(Budget Division) New Delhi, the 26th April, 2005 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. 83 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. 84 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". 8.

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. 90 (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. 91 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.

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. 93 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 in a phased manner in BE 2014-2015. 10. These arrangements shall come into force for the remaining years of the Twelfth Five Year Plan.

No. 2(26)/2014-E.II (A) (Part) Government of India Ministry of Finance Department of Expenditure ******* New Delhi, Dated 7th July, 2014 OFFICE MEMORANDUM Subject : Re-appropriation proposals- adherence to the principles of financial propriety reg. The Administrative Ministries/Departments, during the course of the Financial Year, seek augmentation of budget allocation under the respective Object Heads/Primary Units of appropriation to meet financial commitments in respect of the relevant heads of expenditure. While forwarding such proposals, it needs to be ensured that they are in conformity/compliance with the provisions of GFRs 2005, DFPRs 1978, Economy instructions and austerity measures issued from time to time by the concerned nodal ministries in this regard. It has been observed that in some cases the Ministries or Departments seek augmentation of funds after booking the expenditure under the relevant object heads. Incurring of expenditure in such case in excess of allocations is in violation of basic guidelines on accounting and financial propriety. Seeking augmentation at the end of the financial year leads to rush of expenditure in the closing months of the Financial Year and is not in conformity with the extant instructions, particularly Rule 56 (3) of the GFRs, 2005 and needs to be critically viewed. The expenditure may be booked only after ensuring the availability of funds under a particular head of account either by way of appropriation approved by Parliament or by re-appropriation of funds with the approval of the Competent Authority. It may be pointed out here that re-appropriation of funds should not be routinely done. In case any expenditure attracts the New Service/New Instruments of Service as laid down in Budget Division's OM No. F.1(23)- B(AC)/2005 dated the 25th May, 2006 and O.M. No. 1 (5)8 (AC)/2011 dated 21st May, 2012, prior approval of Parliament is necessary in such cases. Apart from containing the expenditure within the primary unit of appropriation as well as within over all ceilings of the Grant, compliant of the instructions on restrictions on expenditure in the last quarter & month of the financial year may also be ensured. The time limit stipulated for submission of re-appropriation proposals as indicated in this Ministry's D.O. No. 2(19).8 (SD)/2014 dated 5th March, 2014 in respect of the current year, may also be noted for strict compliance. ... .. . 2/- 95 Accordingly, the Mlnistries/Departments besides ensuring the financial propriety while booking of expenditure should also comply with the GFR, DFPR provisions and any general & special instructions issued by this Ministry from time to time, including austerity/economy measures so issued. The re- appropriation proposals should be processed accordingly. (Ratan P . Watal) Secretary (Exp) 1. Secretaries to the Government of India. 2. Financial Advisers of the Ministries/Departments. 3.

II ( A ) Branch 96 Annex-T No.F.1(5)-B(AC)/2011 Ministry of Finance Department of Economic Affairs ( Budget Division ) ... New Delhi, 21.5.2012. OFFICE MEMORANDUM Subject: Clarification on the Financial Limits to be observed in determining cases relating to 'New Service'/'New Instrument of Service'. The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Ministry's O.M. issued vide letter No.1(23)-B(AC)/2005 dated 2.5.5.2006, wherein the revised guidelines on financial limits to be observed In determining cases relating to 'New Service' (NS) /'New Instrument of Service' (NIS) were prescribed, and to state that there has been lack of clarity at Ministry/Department level while determining the cases of NS/NIS on augmentation of funds under the object heads 'Grants-in-aid', 'Subsidies' and 'Major Works'. It is observed that Ministries/Departments, in some cases, have failed to obtain the prior approval of Parliament through Supplementary Demands for Grants whenever funds are augmented through re-appropriation of funds leading to avoidable objection from Audit. With the addition of new object heads like 'Grants for creation of capital assets', 'Grants-to-aid- salaries', it has become necessary to Issue a circular clarifying/amplifying the following: 'Grants in aid': Any augmentation under the object head 'Grants-in--aid' through re-appropriation of savings within the same section of grant requires prior approval of Parliament through Supplementary Demands for Grants except in cases of Grants to States and Union Territory Governments on existing schemes. Cases requiring augmentation of funds, arising out of reclassification of expenditure, from 'Grants-In-aid ·General', 'Grants for creation of capital assets' and 'Grants-In-aid-Salaries' under the same scheme also require the prior approval of Parliament. 'Subsidies': All cases for augmentation of funds (through either re-appropriation of funds or additionally) under the object head 'subsides' require prior approval of the Parliament through supplementary demands for grants, without any exemption. 'Major Works': A view Is being held In some Instances that the financial limits prescribed in column 3 against item 'D- Expenditure on New Works (Land, Buildings and/or Machinery)' In Annex to this Ministry's O.M. Issued under letter No.F.1(23)-B(AC)/2005 dated 25.5.2006 are applicable to cases of 'New Works' only. This view is Incorrect in view of the fact that column 3 also mentions about the augmentation of funds by above 2.5 crore or 10% of the appropriation already voted with the prior approval of the Parliament. . Thus, the words 'appropriation already voted' refer to the existing on-going works and hence the financial limits prescribed under column 3 against Item D- Expenditure on New Works (Land, Buildings and/or Machinery) are equally applicable to cases relating to existing works and attract provisions of 'New Instrument of Services'. It is therefore clarified that all cases relating to augmentation of funds under object head 'Major Works' would require prior approval of the Parliament in case the augmentation is above 2.5 crore or above 10% of the appropriation already voted irrespective of the fact that the augmentation is for 'New' Works or for the existing works.
