Haryana to establish non-banking financial company for management of surplus funds

Haryana to establish non-banking financial company for management of surplus funds

Chandigarh, Mar 11 (UNI) Haryana government will establish a new Non-Banking Financial Company - Haryana State Financial Services Limited- to act as an in-house treasury manager for efficient management of surplus funds of public enterprises, autonomous bodies of Haryana and other state entities and it is expected to become operational in the first quarter of 2018-19.

Stating this here, Finance Minister Capt Abhimanyu said that the state government has decided to restructure its State Subordinate Accounts Services and Audit cadre, to promote highest standards of professional competence in areas of accounting and auditing. The Institute of Public Auditors of India, Chandigarh, is conducting a study for this purpose. This would 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 that the state government has set up 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.

The Minister further said that a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) coordination centre is being set up as a part of the Institute with the support of UNDP, to implement the Vision 2030 based on the SDG in Haryana.

To further promote financial discipline, he said that, the state government would make 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, inter alia, means that all the 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 that 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.
