Subject:    Relaxation in Central Government Account (Receipt and Payment) Rules, 1983 for ensuring smooth payments by PAOs/ CDDOs and enabling them to “work from Home” (WHF) -  facilities of GPF advance/ withdrawal to Civil Accounts Employees -reg.


                 We are thankful to find in the website of the office of the Controller General of Accounts that, the request made by us vide our letter No:- AICAEA-AICAEA CAT II/HQ/A-2/2020/1209- 29  dated 07.04.2020  to  kindly promote “e-office” and  “work from home” pattern has been taken care of  and your office vide Office Memorandum No. 3(2)/TA-II/2020/173 dated 08-04-2020  has decided to amend certain provisions of Receipts & Payment Rules, 1983 temporarily. This decision of yours has undoubtedly been well appreciated by the officers and employees.

            The government has taken few decisions appreciating the prevailing situation in the country and may not discontinue or withdraw the Lock down in the near future. So far as the Civil Accounts organisation is concerned there exists a need to explore amendments to procedures which cause undue hardships to employees and officers of Civil Accounts organisation as the Principal Accounts offices of various Ministries/ Departments situated at Delhi are not able to function like normal times. In majority of the Ministries/ Departments powers for approval/ sanction of GPF advance and withdrawal rest with Principal Accounts offices. It is therefore, becoming inconvenient for the individuals who suddenly fall in the dire need of money as they find it very difficult to reach upto their local HOO even in the present scenario sometimes. 

            In view of the circumstances described above, we have been directed to request you to kindly ask the Heads of the Departments of Civil Accounts Organisation (PCCAs, CCAs, CAs) to delegate sufficient powers to Head of offices (PAO/ ZAO/ RPAO) to make payments of GPF Advance/ withdrawal or necessary arrangement may be made so that on the basis of electronic instructions/ approval of the competent authority, payment or the provision of taking ex post facto sanction from the competent authority for the same may be made.

            We hope you will kindly take an early favourable decision in this regard and direct your office to intimate the favourable decision of yours to us through a line in intimation.

Thanking you,
            Yours Sincerely,
Sd/-                                                                                                                                                  Sd/-
