- What are the points seen while authorizing Cash Assignment to Pojects/TFs?
The cash assignment cases are received as Per BE during the beginning of the
financial year and as per RE at the close of the financial year. Budget Section
notes down the allotments given by the HQ DGBR to the Projects and also the Task
force wise distribution of funds made by the Projects. The following points are
examined while releasing the cash assignment-:
- That the Cash Assignment demand is based on the actual allotments available
with the Project/Task Force.
- The demands received on quarterly basis are examined and after performing
prescribed deductions as per HQ DGBR office vide letter No.
22641/CA/GEN/2008-09/DGBR/10/E5B dated 01.08.2008 the balance allotment
available for release of cash assignment is worked out.
- The additional demand for cash assignment without budgetary provisions for
payment of GPF, encashment of EL, pensionery benefit etc. is considered as per
demand for cash assignment submitted by the Project/Task Force/Formation.
- The demand for cash assignment in respect of Task Force/Formation should
invariably be sanctioned (not Recommended) by the Chief Engineer Project as per
Para 97 of OM Part XIII. On the same lines the demand for cash assignment in
respect of the Chief Engineer (Project) should be sanctioned by the HQ DGBR.
- Only actual allotments available with the Project/Task Force/Formation are
taken into account while preparing the CA demand. Demand of CA prepared on the
basis of Projected BE/RE can not be acted upon. Demands on the basis Projected
BE/RE result into avoidable delay.
- Task Force wise distribution of allotment made by Projects should invariably
be attached with the demand.
- The details of outsourced works/execution contract/LA/FA payments should be
attached with the demand as no deduction towards adjusted expenditure shall be
made on this.
- Cash assignment for payments to attached personnel at HQCE (Project) should
be catered for by HQCE(Project). However, in case of PNR Coy Personnel,
expenditure is debitable to Task Forces and hence, a reduction will have to be
reflected in the cash assignment demand of the Task Forces.
- The amount of Deposit for Agency/Deposit Works shown in the demand should
match the amount of deposit shown in the monthly report submitted by AO Task
- The demands for cash assignment w.r.t. actual allotment and other necessary
