State to widen DBT
IMPHAL | Apr 19
The state government has widened the scope of Direct Benefit Transfer to cover all schemes taken up under state fund to ensure targeted delivery of benefits with utmost transparency.
This is in view to streamline all state schemes as the government of India has decided to implement DBT in all schemes throughout the country from the next financial year, said a release.
It further said for the improvement of financial management in implementation of government funded schemes, usage of Public Financial Management System (PFMS) modules will be made mandatory for all departments and agencies for making payments, advances and transfers.
Therefore, all departmental agencies incurring expenditures in respect of both central and state schemes should register and compulsorily use the PFMS module, it said.
The exercise of state’s initiatives is very crucial and requires immediate attention by all administrative departments, so that all transactions under DBT schemes with the use of PFMS can be rolled out in the state within three months with effect from April 2017, it added.
