- The newly posted Accountants would be given one month induction training including hands - on-training on use of computers.
- Those promoted, as Accountants will be retained as Accountants for a minimum period of three years except, of course, in case of promotion.
- Computerisation of PRI accounts will be initiated along with this process.
- In those Grama Panchayats, which already have Junior Superintendent and Head Clerk posts, new posts of Accountants would not be created.
In 18 such Grama Panchayats the Head Clerk post will be re designated as Accountant posts. There are 642 Grama Panchayats where the staff strength is 10 and above, including re-deployed staff, in such Panchayats, to reduce the financial burden due to the creation of new post, one of the existing post of Upper Division Clerk will be upgraded to the Accountant. In 339 Grama Panchayats where the staff strength is below 10, a post of Accountant will be created.
The post of Accountant is equated to that of Head Clerk in the scale of pay of Rs.8390-13270. The additional expenditure due to the post creation would be absorbed by the village panchayat themselves from their own fund / General Purpose Fund.
