G.I., M.F., O.M. No. F. 7 (18)-E. (Co-ord.)n9, dated 12-11-1979
Sub.:-Reduction in Central Government non-Plan Expenditure.
Attention is invited to this Department’s O.M. of even number, dated the 7th September, 1979, wherein ban orders have been issued under various items, such as on telephones economy in the use of paper, creation of new posts, transfers of Government employees, traveling allowance, contingencies, overtime allowance, staff sanctioned for Centrally-sponsored Schemes, and foreign travel. A doubt has arisen whether the provisions therein would apply only to non-Plan expenditure or it would extend to Plan expenditure. It is clarified for the information of all Ministries/Departments that in regard to items other than “creation of new posts”, the economy instructions issued vide this Department’s O.M., dated the ih September, 1979, would apply irrespective of whether the expenditure is Plan or non-Plan
