An instance…… Civil fund amounting to Rs.11.00 lakhs was transferred to SMCs bank A/c’s under Dibrugarh District from SPOs bank A/c in the month of Jan. Instead of crediting the same into the SMC bank A/c’s, the district bank branch has credited the amount to DPO bank A/c. The Cashier of the DPO also missed out the same amount while writing Cash Book, as it was directly transferred from SPO. The matter was traced only at the end of March while preparing BRS for the last quarter. Thus the corrective measures could be taken only at the end of March. results……………. Such type of critical situation arises if we donot prepare BRS on regular basis. Fund was lying ideal for 3 months.
