The Controller General of Accounts held a review meeting with the senior officers on 13.04.2020. Keeping in view the various measures taken up by the Government to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided that henceforth and until further orders all files in CGA office shall be processed through e-office only. In exceptional cases physical files may be processed with the prior approval of the respective head of the vertical.
2. The development of a facility in PFMS for review of sanctions using eoffice is under consideration. However, till such time the system/facility is put in place, it has been decided that Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs (IC) in the line Ministries/Departments may process the files in e-office to avoid the physical movement of files/documents in view of risks. It is therefore advised that Pr.CCAs/CCAs/CAs (IC) may ensure implementation of e-office in their field Pr.AOs/PAOs/RPAOs/ZAOs in letter and spirit.
