Accounting functions -
 
Many of the errors noticed in the GPF accounting are due to improper data received in this office in the form of Schedules. Carelessness or Ignorance on the part the officials of the concerned departments causes the data sent to this office to be erratic, illegible or incomplete. We, the office of the Accountant General Nagaland, always desire an error free GPF account, so that subcribers are assured that the money they contribute to the fund are safe. To achieve our vision to have an error free GPF accounting system, we solicitate the cooperation of the Drawaing and Disbursing Officers and Treasury Officers. We hope that tips provided here to the DDOs and TOs would help to provide us with perfect data in respect of the contributors/contribution to the fund.

Ensure that minimum subscription of the employee is not less than 6% of Basic Pay + Dearness Pay and not more than Basic Pay + Dearness Pay
Ensure that all schedules are properly signed and stamped by DDOs and TOs.
Ensure that Grade IV and workcharged staffs' schedules are NOT clubbed along with schedules of Grade III or others. Separate Schedules are to be prepared.

Do not omit the Account No. or Name while preparing the Schedules.
Do not club the monthly subscription alongwith refund of withdrawals. This has to be shown separately in the schedule indicating as "refund" or "subscription" against the amount.

Do not change the "series" of the Account Number unilaterly, just because the employee has been transfered from one department to another.
