The Office of Controller General of Accounts (CGA) on Thursday organised a workshop here on “Public Finance Management System (PFMS)” to generate awareness among the officials on the functioning and achievements of the system.
Chief guest CGA Deepak Das said the Government of India has introduced the PFMS to bring accountability and transparency in the governance. “PFMS over the years has transformed the entire public finances system. It has ensured last-mile delivery of services,” he said, adding that Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) for various schemes has abolished the middlemen system.
Das congratulated Odisha for completing 100% on-boarding in the PFMS and said Odisha is among the six States having successfully implemented the PFMS.
Earlier in the day, Das inaugurated an exhibition on Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotav organised by the Regional Outreach Bureau (ROB) Bhubaneswar showcasing the rich art and culture of Odisha and the role of its freedom fighters.
Shri Das commended the efforts of ROB Bhubaneswar and congratulated the team for putting up such a noble initiative. “The exhibition was indeed very unique in its nature. It gives us the insight of the stories of our freedom struggle. I am proud to know about our unsung freedom fighters from the exhibition,” he said.
