Transparency in Treasury

Transaction:To enhance the transparency in treasury transactions, the FIFO (First- In-First-Out) system is introduced in all the treasuries. The system will decide the seniority of the bill as soon as the bill is entered and clears it on FIFO basis. Interactive Voice Response System has been introduced to facilitate the DDOs to know the status of bill in treasuries by a mere Phone call.

Budget Control: The system controlled budget monitoring is an important feature of this Project. The budget releases by the Head of Department (CCO) to COs are uploaded to the central server at treasury network management centre after due verification by the system. They are transferred to the COs across the state in the district servers immediately. A similar budget distribution by the COs at district level to their implementing officers (DDOs) is uploaded at the district treasuries which are again after system validations is passed to the taluk server immediately. This budget distribution is released with full particulars up to the last item of expenditure, by the time the treasury officer captures the details of the bill into the system, the system already has the information regarding the funds released for this particular scheme/DDO. If the fund is available, the bill will be cleared, otherwise system raises an objection. This has eliminated the over drawl of funds and misclassification.
