Departments are requested to submit proposals for inclusion of items of expenditure not covered by the GOs in vogue with a view to bring the list up to date. The values for the items of expenditure in the delegations were also defined atleast 15 years ago and need to be revised to make them more realistic. Also for routine items of expenditure like electricity bills and rents, departments are requested to recommend norms for adequate budgeting. These proposals may reach the Finance Department by 30th April, 2015.
