About Us(Audit Wing)

Print

We are the inheritors of the Accountant General, North Western Provinces and Oudh, Agra. Mr. G.Lushington, the then Accountant General, shifted the Office to Allahabad, in October 1862. Boats transported records as there were no Railways those days. The Office was known as that of the Accountant General, United Provinces and Oudh. Consequent to some sort of separation of Accounts, the Chief Accounts Officer of the provincial Government took over the Accounting responsibility from 1st April, 1926, and the office was titled as that or ‘Director of Audit of the United Provinces.’ An Officer-in-Charge, Central Pay & Accounts Office, was also appointed for accounting the Central transactions in the United Provinces. A separate cadre of Pay & Accounts Officers, under the control of the Officer on Special Duty, Finance Department, Government of India was formed on the 24th January 1927. The Offices of the Indian Audit & Accounts Department were restructured into separate Audit and Accounts & Entitlement offices with effect from 1st March, 1984.
