CGA’s Push for On-Time Monthly Account Submissions

The Controller General of Accounts (CGA), under the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, Government of India, has issued an Office Memorandum (OM) emphasizing the timely submission of monthly accounts by Principal Accounts Offices (PAOs) to the O/o CGA.

The OM refers to earlier OMs, which advanced the submission date to the 8th of the following month, to enable the timely submission of accounts to the Ministry of Finance. However, the CGA has observed that many Controllers are not adhering to the prescribed timelines, leading to delayed compilation of accounts.

The CGA has requested all PAOs to review their compilation position and ensure that accounts are submitted before the outer date of submission, i.e., 8th of the subsequent month. The OM is issued with the approval of Jt.CGA(A&ER).
