Annexure-A

 

POINTS TO BE SPECIFICALLY LOOKED INTO BY THE CONTROLLING OFFICERS WHILE PREPARING PROPOSALS FOR ESTIMATES OF "NEW SERVICE / NEW EXPENDITURE"

  1. Is it very necessary to implement the scheme/ programme by the State Government given its limited resources?
  2. Can the proposed scheme/ programme be not implemented by a non-government organization? If the scheme can be implemented by incurring less expenditure ( that is, by giving grant-in-aid to a non-government organization ) by a private/ non-government organization, it will reduce the burden of expenditure on the State Government.
  3. The cost-benefit analysis of the proposed scheme/ programme be carried out also keeping in view the extent to which the proposed expenditure will result in economic/ social benefits.
  4. Can the proposed scheme/ programme be taken up without incurring any additional expenditure by terminating some continuing scheme/ schemes?
  5. What percent of the recurring expenditure on the proposed scheme/ programme is on establishment? How much expenditure on the capital side is estimated on the creation of assets and the basis thereof? Has the cost of the scheme been determined on the basis of some standards?
  6. The departments should carry out "Zero-base review" of continuing schemes to ensure that items that have become irrelevant are not included. The departments should list savings thus estimated.
  7. Have the projects/ schemes been prioritized, and whether such projects / schemes are proposed to be included in the budget as are financially and economically viable and which entail better returns? It is essential to avoid excessive multiplicity of schemes with same or similar objectives in the budget so that the resources are not thinly spread over such schemes. Such schemes may be dovetailed. (See para-206)
  8. The concept of "Value for Money" should be borne in mind while assessing schemes.
