Govt directive on Treasury malpractices

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 18 � The Finance Department has issued a directive to all the Deputy Commissioners and Sub Divisional Officers to put in place an effective vigilance mechanism for firmly dealing the �reported malpractices and collection of illegal gratifications in the offices of the DDOs as well as the Treasuries.�

An official press release here said that this has been done after receiving reports of large scale malpractices and illegal gratifications taking place in the offices of many DDOs, particularly those under the Education Department for passing of arrear salary bills following the recent revision of pay scales of the State Government employees.

The DCs are responsible for smooth functioning of the transactions in the State Treasuries and hence they have been asked to take appropriate action against the offenders, which amount to criminal offences under the IPC. The concerned DCs and SDOs have been asked to designate one or more Magistrate in each district and sub-division to receive complaints from the victims of such malpractices and initiate necessary action, said the press release.
