    2. A guiding principle is that sanction of a Spl Items wks should not set up a newpractice or a precedence.

    3. Power of various CFAs for sanction of Spl items wks are as under :-

    Ser Competent Financial Without IFAs With IFAsNo Auth concurrence concurrence

    (Rs Lakh) (Rs Lakh)

    (a) COAS 20.00 75.00

    (b) GOC-IN-C 7.00 30.00

    (e) Sub Area Cdr 0.15 2.00

    (f) Stn Cdr 0.05 -

    (g) QMG - 2.00 * in r/o ArmyHQ officers

    4. CFAs have to exhaust their wk sanctioning powers with IFA before projecting itto the next higher CFA.

    5. If the CFA for spl item of wk is higher than the CFA for total cost of the job,then the wk will be sanctioned by the higher CFA.

    1. Even though the best method of fnancial control consists in evaluation of

    physical achievements against resource inputs, but in the Army, it is not alwayspossible to quantify the outputs. Therefore, it becomes necessary to use combinationof physical and financial evaluation as an instrument of control. In the Army, financialcontrol is exercised in financial terms only.

    2. The method of control and system of accounting for plg and exec of EngrServices in MES is designed to ensure full adm, financial and tech control, to enablefinancial authorities to submit the accts of expdr in the form desired by Govt and toenable expdr to be compared with Adm Approvals and with allotment of funds. Theadm control is exercised by CFAs but the resp to render engr advice to CFAs restswith CEAs. Resp for financial and tech control of Engineer Services devolves fully on

    the CEAs. These are in three phases namely Financial Control, Constr Accts andMechanics of Budgeting.

    Financial Control

    3. Financial Control ensures that : -

    (a) Total estimate for each service is not exceeded beyond permissiblelimits.

    (b) No expdr or liability is incurred until funds to meet it are available exceptas indicated in Para 183 of RMES regarding incurring liabilities.

    (c) The funds are expended on those duly auth services for which fundsare allotted and not on others.

    (d) The funds allotted in any yr and available under any Head or Subdivision of that Head are not exceeded.

    4. The essential ingredients to ensure effective financial control are : -

    (a) Correct maint of wks accts.

    (b) Budget formulation and its periodic review.

    (c) Expenditure monitoring and reporting.

    Maint of Constr Accts

    5. To exercise effective financial control, it is essential that correct andmeticulous acct of the expdr and the liabilities are maintained. RMES lays downdetailed guidelines on the maint of constr acct. The constr acct is the basic docu

    which would help in arriving at the correct assessment of the budget reqmts, andcontrol of expdr. Detailed instrs on maint of constr accts have been issued vide E-in-Cs Branch letter No A/00358/ POL/E2(WPC) dt 10 May 93.

    Budget Formulation and its Periodic Review

    6. Correct budget formulation and its periodic review enables the engrs to carryout various constr and maint activities planned for exec during the yr. Wks budgetcomprises of Capital Wks as well as Revenue / Maint Wks.

    7. Capital Wks budget consists of two elements viz. Carry Over Wks and NewWk. Assessment of the reqmt of funds for carry over wks is carried out on the actualreqmt basis depending on the proj profile (time frame) and funding pattern. The reqmtfor New Wks is assessed at 5 to 10% of the ceiling approved by the Ministry.

    8. For low budgeted wks, a time frame of one and half to two yrs is envisaged.For proj costing Rs 2 Crores, it is 3 to 4 yrs and those above Rs 2 Crores is 4 to 5 yrs.In the case of CCPA projs, a time frame is specially incl in the CCPA approval. Theideal funding pattern in respect of low budgeted wks is 20-70-10. In case of wks uptoRs 2 Crores funding pattern is 10-40-40-10 and it is 5-20-30-30-10-5 for wks over Rs

    5 Crores.

    9. Keeping the proj profile and the funding patterns as indicated above, anassessment of the carry over liabilities are to be carried out depending upon thephasing of the proj, contract packages, delays if any anticipated in the exec as alsothe incidence of FCs /RAEs and the sanction /release of the matching services.Before the budgetary projections for Capital Wks is made, it is essential to determinethe planned prog of each of those contracts along with the reqmt of the Schedule Band other stores required.

    10. To wk out the reqmt of funds as also to assess the carry over liabilities, info onthe proforma attached at Appendix A to E-in-Cs Branch letter No 03364/ 92-93/E5dt 22 Jun 93 will be maintained by the Zonal CEs /CsWE/ GEs. This info will beupdated each qr. In addition, a financial stock taking statement will be prepared onthe proforma attached at Appx B of the same policy letter of E-in-Cs Branch and willbe maintained by the Zonal CEs / CsWE / GEs and updated each qr.

    11. If the allocation recd is less than the reqmt projected in Forecast Estimate /Budget Estimate, a detailed analysis should be carried out to prioritise the variousitems of expdr with a view to keep the expdr for the yr within the allocations made.

    Revenue and Maint Budget

    12. Experience over the last few yrs indicates that the expdr has exceeded thebudget allotments as the allocation against the revenue budget were short of thereqmts. It is essential that a detailed analysis is carried out imdt on receipt ofallotments to prioritize various items of expdr against the revenue wks budget. Thefirst change on revenue budget is age element against each Sub-Head. Next in theorder of priority will be the obligatory tariff payments for electricity /water. Expdr onother items should be incurred only if funds are available as the Govt is committed torestrict the revenue expdr within certain specified limits. Excess expdr againstrevenue budget is viewed seriously by the Ministry and would invite discp action

    against the offrs resp. Local Fmn Cdr and the Users should be apprised of the fundsposn at the beginning of the yr and the maint programme drawn up for each stnshould match the availability of funds and no liabilities in excess of the allotmentsshould be incurred.

    Electricity Saving Measures

    1. The industrial and agriculture growth in India has enhanced the energy

    demand manifolds, but there has not been a proportionate incr in the powergeneration. Due to this, gap between demand and sup is rising daily. As MES doesnot generate electricity and is totally dependent upon the State Electricity Bds (SEB),the total energy available to MES also gets affected due to this overall shortage.

    2. Along with the over all shortage of power, the tariff for energy is being raisedby the SEBs exponentially every yr. The revenue that is collected from theconsumers is only a meager percentage of the tariff we pay. Due to high tariff, thetotal funds available for maint of bldgs reduces correspondingly. Tremendoussavings in tariff can be made by avoiding wasteful use of electricity.

    3. A few tips to help you to conserve electricity are given below : -

    (a) Street Lights .

    (i) Ensure that the street lights are switched on only after last lt andthese are switched off at first lt.

    (ii) Whenever the lights are found switched on after first lt, the sameshould be brought to the notice of the GE.

    (iii) Use only alternate lights on max rds in the stn. Decision onwhich rds alternate street lights are to be switched on should be takenby the Stn Cdr.

    (iv) Ensure that no unauth connections /tapings are taken from thestreet lt feeder. The Stn Cdr should direct the GE to carry out surprisechecks and report defaulters.

    (b) OTM Accn.

    (i) The OR should be taught to switch off all lights after sunrise or

    when ever the same are not required.

    (ii) The OR should be taught to make max use of natural lt duringday time.

    (iii) Window panes and ventilators should be kept clean to allowaccess of natural lt during day.

    (iv) Low wattage Compact Flourescent Lamps (CFL) should be usedwhere precision wk like writing etc is not done. Examples are corridors,bathrooms, veh parking areas etc.

    (v) Unauthorised electric gadgets like heaters, immersion rods etcshould not be permitted under any circumstances. Raids should be

  • 8/12/2019 Aide Memoire-17 Oct



    conducted by the COs and Stn Cdrs and discp action initiated againstdefaulters, if any.

    (vi) All lights should be switched off when lt out is announced andsame should be ensured through the Duty NCO /ni sentry.

    (vii) Lt should be switched off while going out for PT in the morning.

    (viii) Lights of cook houses and dinning halls should be switched offafter dinner timings.

    (ix) Security lts should be switched on at last lt and switched off atfirst lt.

    (x) Main switch should be switched off if it is connected to a large Noof lights, which are not reqd at a particular time instead of resorting to

    switching off the individual lts.

    (c) OR Md Accn.

    (i) Do not permit anyone to use the heaters /improvised immersionrods etc. Surprise raids /checks should be carried out and discp actioninitiated against defaulters, if any.

    (ii) Users should be educated of the need to save energy.

    (iii) All the relevant pts enumerated under OTM accn should beimplemented.

    (d) Offices.

    (i) Max use of natural lt should be encouraged and therefore barestmin No of lights should be used during day time.

    (ii) In the mornings, the sweepers and the duty JCO be directed toswitch off the electric pts in the offices imdt after the rooms have beenswept/cleaned.

    (iii) Suitable checks be initiated and implemented to ensure that noelectric gadget is kept switched on inadvertently after office hrs.(iv) All offrs and clerks be directed to switch off their respectiverooms electric lts and appliances as and when they leave theirrespective offices (even for short duration).

    (v) To reduce the peak load, the No of air conditioners switched onat any one time be restricted by staggering their use.

    (vi) Offices where sufficient sunlight is available be advised not to

    use lt pts unnecessarily.

  • 8/12/2019 Aide Memoire-17 Oct



    (vii) All lights of an office room should be switched off whenever theoccupant leaves the office for discussions, mtgs and confs etc or anyother purpose requiring his absence for more than a min or so.

    (viii) Lights of corridors, conf rooms, stores, libraries etc should be

    used only when required.

    (ix) Low wattage CFL should be used in bathrooms, canteens,waiting rooms etc or the places where precision wk like writing andreading is not undertaken.

    (x) All lights, fans and other appliances should be switched offbefore leaving the office.

    Water Saving Measures

    4. India receives the sec highest annual rainfall in the World. Yet there is chronicshortage of water. Water conservation has thus become the urgent need of the day ifwe are to solve the problem, which has, today, assumed alarming proportions. Waterconservation really commences at the individual level. For this, there are manysimple, cost-effective measures we can adopt in our daily activities, measures, whichdo not call for a drastic change in our lifestyles. A few tips to help you are givenbelow : -

    (a) Close taps tightly.

    (b) Report about leaking taps imdt to the GE and get them repaired.

    (c) Do not remove overhead tank float valves.

    (d) Report about overhead tank overflow to the GE and get them repaired.

    (e) Regularly check faucets, pipes and the base of your toilet for leaks andget them repaired promptly.

    (f) Check for leaks in your flushing cistern tank by putting a little colouringin the cistern. If the colour begins to appear in the bowl without flushing, youhave a leak that should be repaired at once.

    (g) When cleaning your teeth, shaving or washing your hands, never leaveyour tap running. Fill a mug or bowl with water for mouth rinsing, shaving orbrushing.

    (h) To save water do not use the shower. A bucket of water suffices for abath.

    (j) Wash vegetables, fruit and meat in a bowl of water, washing thecleanest ones first. Use this water for your plants.

  • 8/12/2019 Aide Memoire-17 Oct



    (k) Use water from cooked vegetables in dal or rice cooking. Not only youwill save water, you benefit as well, as it is full of nutritious vitamins andminerals.

    (l) In times of acute water shortage use a bucket to water in your garden

    rather than a hose.

    (m) Wash your vehs with bucket and sponge instead of a hose. By usingthe hose for washing a car over 400 litres of water is utilised. By using abucket upto 300 litres of water can be saved.

    (n) Never use a hose to clean your driveway. Use broom instead. If youfeel the driveway really needs a rinse, start by washing the car there.

    (o) Water the garden early in the morning, as watering during the heat ofthe day results in evaporation.

    (p) Resort to water saving techniques like mulching. Grass clippings fromthe lawn can be used to cover garden beds and thus retain moisture.

    (q) Waste water from the kitchen can be used to water the garden.

    (r) The size of kitchen garden should be kept to the very min.

    (s) Catch rain water in large tubs or cans and use it to water your plants.

    (t) Lawns need only 2 to 3 cms of water and can be watered only 3 to 5days a week, less if it rains. When you water, give it a thorough soaking. Thiswill produce a deep root system and stronger grass. Daily watering results inshallow roots and weaker grass.

    (u) In drought prone areas, using drought resistant plants in your gardenlike cacti etc, are good options. Your local nursery owner can advise you.

    (v) During a drought, you can skip watering the lawn. It may turn brown,but it will revive when it rains.

    (w) Do not cut your grass too short. Taller grass holds water better andactually looks richer.

    (x) Avoid using pesticides, fungicides and herbicides in your garden forthey leach into the grnd and pollute grndwater. Instead, resort to organicgardening. Repel insects and wks by planting friendly flowers such asmarigolds, pull up weeds by hand and introduce carnivorous insects to killpests. A good text on organic gardening can help.

    1. Dining Hall Dining hall requires enormous ventilation with fly proofing. Theincumbents enter the Dining hall for lunch directly after their routine exercise. At this

    hour they are sweating profusely. The stench of the sweat is trapped in dining hall, inabsence of adequate ventilation. The ventilation to the dining hall therefore should bein the form of very large windows and continuous horizontal fixed mosquito proofopenings underneath the roof beam alround the dining hall.

    4. Plate Wash. Guidliness for the design of plate are as follows :-

    (a) There is a need to cater for two sets of plate washes for the Dining hall.

    (b) After taking food in the dining hall, the incumbent has to go out andwash the plate himself. Traditional trough type wash basin is not suitable for

    washing the plates. The food particles clog the outlet of wash basin and thepresent width of the wash basin is inadequate for washing the plates.

    (c) It is therefore necessary to provide wider trough type wash basin at lowlevel with saucer drain for effective cleaning of the plates. Max No of tapsshould be provided to reduce long queue. The plate wash should have agarbage bin outside but accessible through the hatch with collapsible flap. Theplate wash should have the water pt for drinking water in a segregated fashion.

    (d) It is possible to derive the area of the plate wash from the plinth area ofthe dining hall.

    5. Servery. Guidelines to be followed while designing servery are as follows :-

    (a) The present length of servery is grossly inadequate. Only two personsat a time can get the food served resulting in long queue and delay. It alsoresults in crowding in front of the servery. To avoid this situation, it isnecessary to increase the length of the service counter. It may be possible toachieve this by utilizing the total plinth area auth.

    6. Cook House. Guidelines to be followed while designing Cook House are as

    follows :-

    (a) The clear height of the cook house should be at least 4.2 mtrs Thereshould be a covered hatch in the roof slab of the kitchen which will take care ofventilating the heat and smoke which accumulates under the roof slab. Inaddition to this continuous roof ventilator under the roof beam with fly proofingshould be provided for the entire length of the wall. Ample amount of exhaustfans should ne provided.

    (b) The kitchen layout should be divided into two types of cooking. On oneside proper arrangement for the Steam Cooking with a raised platform (200

    mm height) and saucer drain in the center with provision of water taps forwashing the container at this platform itself, should be provided. On anotherside in the kitchen, place for dough kneader, chapathi stand and hot plate forchapathi in an assembly like fashion should be provided. The chapathi table

  • 8/12/2019 Aide Memoire-17 Oct



    should be in the form of a wk table having a size of 2.5 x 1.2 mtr with a granitetop. At a time 4 to 5 persons are making chapattis. Thus, there is a need toleave clearance around this wk table.

    (c) Provision for housing the kitchen equipments like wet grinder, potato

    peeler, mixer, deep freezer etc should be made in the preparation roomadjoining to the kitchen.

    (d) The LPG gas cylinder should be housed outdoor which should beplaced outside the kitchen wall on a two tier platform with a chajja and grilldoors. This arrangement can be below the level of the windows of thekitchen.

    7. Boiler Room. There is a need to provide a separate boiler room. The minsize required is 3x3 mtrs. The boiler room should be in the form of a shade with roof,to be provided outside the kitchen.

Polished Kotah flooring with a Nahnitrap also to be provided with proper slopes, so that this store can be washed. Therehas to be provision of extensive ventilation and provision of a fan.

    9. Dry Store. The Dry Store should have only a platform 60 cm high from thegrnd level so that the gunny bags and storage bins can be kept on this platform.Provision of 3 tier shelving is not reqd in the dry store. The dry store should alsohave provn of ventilation and provn of a fan.

    10. Meat Preparation Store. The meat prepration store must have extensiveventilation and a ceiling fan. Since the dressing of the meat is done by squatting onthe floor rather thatn on the platform, it is preferable to provide polished Kotah stoneflooring.

    11. Pan Wash. The Pan wash is meant for washing big containers. There is aneed to provide low level platform on one side to keep the container after they arewashed. For washing, there should be min 3 taps with a saucer drain. The pan washalso should have extensive light and ventilation. This ventilation should be in theform of a fixed fly proof frame for the entire length of the wall commencing from cill to

    bottom of roof beam.

    12. Gen Pts. The flooring of Dining hall, Plate wash, Cook house, Fresh store,Dry store and Pan wash should be of polished kota stone.
