Accounts of Public Works and Forest Divisions

  • In the earlier sessions we have discussed that apart from State Treasuries, major departments like Public Works Divisions and Forest Divisions, which have been vested with cheque drawing powers, render compiled accounts to the State Accountants General. These compiled accounts are also initial accounts and the Accountants General incorporates these initial accounts in the monthly and annual accounts of the State Government.

Public works department

Public Works Department

  • The PWD of the Government is entrusted with construction and maintenance of public works. The Department is divided into several branches, e.g., Buildings, Roads, Irrigation, and Public Health Engineering, etc. Each branch in a State is generally in the charge of a Chief Engineer. Each branch is divided into circles headed by an SE, which in turn is divided into divisions headed by an EE.
