Treasury is the “Bank of Government”, functioning with the objective of maintaining all transactions to the government and sending reports to the Accountant General. Any transaction related to government is performed in the form of a bill. Initially a bill is submitted to the counter of a Sub Treasury / District Treasury / Pay and Accounts Office through a messenger. The bill goes through a phase of approval. This phase is called auditing the bill. Auditing clerk can reject the bill or can approve the bill. If the bill is approved, it is sent to the cheque release counter. The clerks at cheque release counter handover the cheque to the messenger if Treasury type is banking. If the Treasury is non-banking type, cash is given to the messenger.

The application software developed by NIC provides online environment with systems available on all working tables starting from the bill submission counter. The officials can process the bills online and take action for passing / rejecting the claim. Once the bill is passed the payment is done thru Electronic Clearance System.
