Department of Treasury

Who we are


The Department of Treasuries has been created to facilitate easy financial transactions with regard to major functions such as receipt of government money and payments on behalf of the government. This Department is also dealing with pension payments, sale of stamps through vendors, district wise compilation of government accounts, safe custody of valuables and maintenance of accounts for local fund.  Besides this, this department is submitting monthly accounts, preparing pension statements and monitoring budget provision at the district level. This department is therefore created to keep all government money at the district level and to regulate all the government payments.



District Treasury’ is a repository of district funds or public money. Treasury is created to deposit government money and to disburse eligible claims it to various line departments and authorised parties.

Treasury was created to control and regulate the payment of government money. The e-treasury/computerisation initiatives have brought greater visibility of transactions and convenient approach to records of public money distribution in Jharkhand.

The computerization of District Treasury was done in a phased manner. It has helped to streamline the functions between the different offices in the Department, reduce paper work to facilitate faster, efficient effective working and usher transparency in financial administration by simplifying the accounting process. It has enabled a swifter and smoother transition to e-governance

The process of computerization of accounts with the help of software developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC) covered all the District Treasuries and sub treasuries, Pay & Accounts Offices and Pension Pay Offices. Another innovative section of the practice has been an adoption of the electronic clearing systems ( ECS) which enabled the transition to a single window administration where people do not have to needlessly queue up to receive their salaries, pensions etc. All activities are performed electronically. The only pre-requisite condition to availing this ECS facility is that pensioners had to compulsorily open a bank account. With the application of software developed by NIC, the Pensions and Pay Office is able to generate monthly bankwise and branch-wise details for direct pension payment.
