Audit of Benevolent Fund Account discussed


Karachi: Chief Secretary Sindh, Mohammad Siddique Memon has asked the Director General Audit Sindh to conduct audit of the Benevolent Fund Account, currently being dealt with by the offices of Deputy Commissioners in the Province.

He was presiding over a meeting of Board of the Benevolent Funds Directorate at the Sindh Secretariat which was attended among others by the SMBR-Mohammad Waseem, Accountant General Sindh Ehsan Kehar, Secretary General Administration Sajid Jamal Abro, Secretary Finance Suhail Rajput and others.

It was decided by the meeting that system would be made easy after the Audit of B.F. A/c from 2011 to 2014, enabling the beneficiaries – especially widows and orphans to receive their dues every month through their Bank Accounts, instead of frequently visiting different offices including D.C. Offices.

The deduction rate has also been enhanced in view of increased salaries. The A.G. Sindh held out assurance to extend the cooperation to this effect, as well D.G. Local Fund Audit has been asked to submit the audit report of B.F. A/c of 2011, in the next meeting of B.F. Board of Sindh Government, that is scheduled to be in November 2015.
