Implementation & fund flow arrangements – APCBTMP


Government  have issued orders on the implementation  and fund flow arrangements  for APCBTMP  with Government  of India and World Bank Assistance.

The State  Project  Director,  APCBTMP, Hyderabad,  has stated that among other implementation  arrangements,  under fund  flow  arrangements,  it is envisaged  that  the funds  required  by the  Line Departments  against component – III (ALSS), shall be drawn by the State and district  units  as  per  geographical   location  of  the  activity  either  at  State headquarters  or  at  the  district  through  the  A.C.  bills  following  the  existing norms.  As per the above Government instructions, advances are being given to the Line Departments  such as Agriculture  , Horticulture,  Fisheries,  etc. for the activities being carried out by the Line Departments  under the component – III of APCBTMP.    He has also stated that huge amounts drawn through AC bills are held  – up with  the  Line  Departments  for want  of DC bills  which  resulted  in withdrawal of reimbursement already made by the World Bank in the subsequent claims. In addition  to that, much difficulty  is being experienced  in getting the advances  given to the Line Departments,  settled and the advances  have been pending  with  the  Line  Departments   for  years  together  without  rendering adjustment  accounts.        During  the  recent  visit  of  World  Bank  Mission,  in 12/2012,the above issue has been discussed at length and the Mission felt that the DDOs of Line Departments  would present the bills to the Pay and Accounts Officer (PAO) concerned  as is being followed  in respect  of APWSIP  under the World Bank Project, for the APCBTMP also, instead of giving advances to the Line Departments  on  drawal  of  AC  bills  by  the  Irrigation  departmental  offices  at district level /PMU level.

In view of the suggestions  of the World Bank Mission, the State Project Director, APCBTMP, Hyderabad has  proposed to bring all the DDOs of the Line Departments  such as Agriculture,  Horticulture,  Fisheries etc.,. who are involved in the implementation of the ALSS activities under APCBTMP, under the payment control of the PAOs concerned under the overall control of the Director of Works Accounts to whom the distribution of funds (i.e.) LoC and NON LoC items, will be issued in favour of the DDOs of the Line Departments, for arranging payments to the above DDOs on presentation  of bills at the respective PAOs, duly following the   procedure   laid   down   in   the   G.O.Ms.No.   278,   Finance   (TFR.I)   dept. dated: 22-09-2006., with effect from 01-04-2013  i.e. from the ensuing Financial Year   2013-14.

Government of AP after examination of the above proposal, agree and  issue modified orders to bring all the DDOs of the Line Departments such as Agriculture,   Horticulture, Fisheries etc., who are involved in the implementation of the ALSS activities under APCBTMP, under the payment control of the PAOs concerned under the overall control of the Director of Works Accounts to whom the distribution of funds (i.e.) LoC and NON LoC items, will be issued in favour of the DDOs of the Line Departments,  for arranging payments to the above DDOs on  presentation   of  bills  to  the  respective   PAOs,   on  the  same   lines  of G.O.Rt.No.31, I &CAD, (PW.EA) Dept., dated:22.01.2011, duly following the procedure    laid    down    in    the    G.O.Ms.No.278,     Finance    (TFR.I)    Dept., dated:22-09-2006.,  with effect from 01-04-2013  i.e. from the ensuing Financial Year 2013-14.
