Meanwhile, AC approved strengthening of Audit & Inspection Department by creating 54 posts at various levels to ensure establishment of District Audit Offices in each district.
The decision is aimed at making the audit exercise more effective, decentralized and broad based to enhance the coverage of government offices and bring accountability in governance. Internal audit of various government entities will be held periodically in a phased manner.
The Audit and Inspection Department is an empowered arm of the Government for internal audit of government departments and autonomous bodies. The resources of the Department will be augmented to take follow up action on Audit Inspection Report (AIRs) by way of constituting Audit Analysis Monitoring and Follow up Cells (AMFC) at UT and Divisional level.
Administrative Council also approved the transfer of state land measuring 02 kanal at Udhampur in favour of Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, Government of India to build the sub-regional office building of National Sample Survey Office (NSSO). The land will be transferred on payment of Rs. 13,20,000.
Currently, the Field Operation Division (FOD) of National Sample Survey Office has its regional offices in Jammu & Srinagar with their sub-regional offices in Udhampur, Anantnag & Baramulla districts which are housed in rental buildings.
Opening up of regional and sub-regional offices with adequate infrastructure will go a long way in strengthening people’s participation in policy formulation and execution.
