The Haryana government will establish a new Non-Banking Financial Company to act as an in-house treasury manager for efficient management of surplus funds of public enterprises, autonomous bodies and other state entities.
He said the state government had decided to restructure its State Subordinate Accounts Services and Audit cadre, to promote highest standards of professional competence in areas of accounting and auditing.
"For this purpose, the Institute of Public Auditors of India, Chandigarh, is conducting a study. This will facilitate the cadre to do their job in a more professional manner and eventually result in better management of state finances in government departments as well as public sector enterprises," he said in an official release here.
He said the state government had set up the 'Swarna Jayanti Haryana Institute for Fiscal Management' to provide structured training and research programmes for government officers and officials in the areas of public finance policy, financial management and financial administration, with specific focus on taxation, budgeting, financial planning, audit and accounts management procedures and policy issues.
Abhimanyu said, a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Coordination Centre was being set up as a part of the institute with the support of United Nations Development Programme, to implement 'Vision 2030' based on the SDG in Haryana.
To promote financial discipline, he said the state government would make a major procedural change by allowing departments and public sector undertakings including autonomous bodies to operate only one or two major bank accounts with effect from April 2018.
This means that all remaining bank accounts would have to be consolidated into one or two accounts for efficient utilisation of funds by every department, board, corporation, authority, he added.
He said the state government has made considerable progress in Treasury Management through implementation of Integrated Financial Management System and Public Finance Management System for online monitoring of flow of funds from Government to end user on a real time basis.
