Recovery of Co-operative societies dues
107-CC. Recoveries from the pay of Government servant on account of dues of co-operative societies, registered under the various Co-operative Societies Acts, where such Acts impose a statutory obligation on the Government to make such deductions, shall be made in accordance with the procedure indicated below :
(a) Non gazetted Government servantsOn receipt of the requisition, in writing, from the society it shall be the duty of the Drawing and Disbursing Officer of the Government servant concerned to make the recoveries in satisfaction of the requisition. The Drawing and Disbursing Officer should draw the gross amount of the pay and allowance of the Government servant concerned, in the usual manner, but should disburse only the net amount, after making the recoveries. The amount thus recovered should be paid to the co-operative society concerned, without undue delay, after deducting the remittance charges, if any.
(b) Gazetted Government servants and others who draw their own billsIt shall be the duty of the head of the office receiving the requisition from the co-operative society to send the necessary intimation to the Accountant General or the officer under whose authority the employee draws his pay. On receipt of such intimation the Accountant General or the officer shall arrange to make the recoveries by issuing, if necessary, suitable instructions to the Treasury Officer concerned. The amount thus recovered should be paid to the co-operative society, without undue delay, after deducting the remittance charges, if any.
(c) Where the Government servant intentionally allows his pay to remain undrawnIn cases where the Government servant concerned intentionally allows his pay to remain undisbursed or undrawn, with a view to evading payment on account of the dues of co-operative societies, the Drawing and Disbursing Officer, in the case of non-gazetted servants who are not allowed to draw their own bills, or the administrative head of the department concerned, in other cases, should draw such amount out of the pay of the debtor-employee under intimation to him as may be stated in the requisition received from the co-operative society taking necessary precautions to avoid drawal of that part of pay again, and remit the amount to the society; without undue delay, after deducting the remittance charges, if any.
(d) Treatment in the accountsThe amount recovered in accordance with clauses (a), (b) or (c) above shall be treated in the accounts in the same way as salary paid to the Government servant concerned, the particulars of the requisition received from the co-operative society being cited in the pay bill or the acquittance roll, as the case may be, as an authority for the charge, and the receipt of the co-operative society for the amount remitted to it shall be filed with the relevant records.
(e) ReceiptReceipts to the individuals concerned for the amounts recovered from them will be issued by the co-operative society concerned.
