Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Aug 7: In a meeting held at Raj Bhavan Principal Secretary Finance, Navin K. Choudhary gave a detailed presentation to Governor N.N. Vohra on the execution of current year's budget, the obtaining fiscal and revenue position and the various salary related and other emerging fiscal problems.
An official spokesman said that Chaudhary informed the Governor that while revenue expenditure is taking place at its own pace, the pace of developmental expenditure needs to be speeded up so that the targets fixed for the year are achieved.
The Governor re-iterated his serious concern for maintaining financial prudence, ensuring against any kind of wasteful expenditure, utilization of available resources for securing the maximum possible benefit for the people, while adhering to financial rules and regulations to ensure transparency and accountability of public expenditure.
Appreciating the functioning of the Expenditure Management Cell in the Finance Department, Governor emphasized the need to use IT tools to regularly monitor all expenditures. He directed that all releases should be timely made through BEAMS and PFMS and DBT Portal should be fully operationalized for capturing all expenditure data to ensure transparency.
Governor directed Principal Secretary Finance to closely scrutinize the entire Budget to ensure against any avoidable expenditure and all resources being used for the completion of all incomplete projects. He also directed that the contracting and procurement processes should be revamped to bring them in line with the best practices elsewhere.
While expressing regret on the very slow progress to regularize the services of casual labourers, need based workers etc., Governor directed that all Administrative Secretaries should be urgently informed to personally monitor the urgent submission of cases to the Finance Department for approval and if they found that the number of casual workers shown against their Departments are in- correct, the same must be immediately corrected. Governor emphasized the need to have a full clarity regarding the exact number of eligible workers who have to be regularized.
Governor reviewed the Aadhaar Based Biometric Attendance System and directed its urgent completion and asked Finance Secretary to link it with the Centralized Personnel Information System (CPIS) and Leave Management System to secure a complete data base on each individual employee alongwith their attendance and leave status online. He directed that all Administrative Secretaries should be advised to update the data on CPIS and get integration done with ABBAS.
To curtail the continuing delays in the disposal of files/papers in various offices, Governor directed Finance Secretary to work out a strategy with IT Secretary for introduction of File Tracking System in all offices of the Civil Secretariat.
He complimented Finance Secretary for having successfully introduced this system in his own office.
Governor observed that he would address Union Finance Minister and request very early concurrence for raising of Rs.3500 crores State Power Bonds to clear Power Purchase liabilities which, inter-alia, will result in financial savings of approx Rs.500 crores on annual basis. He also directed the Finance and Planning Departments to closely monitor reimbursement of funds under PMDP and CSS by various concerned Central Government Departments and to keep him informed.
Finance Secretary informed Governor that the tendering process for Group Mediclaim Insurance Policy for employees and pensioners has been completed and a note for consideration of the SAC is being sent to the Chief Secretary.
