Motivation Scheme for the Defence Accounts Department


The need for adequately motivating officers and staff at all levels of the Central and State Governments has been engaging the attention of the Government for some time. Keeping this in view, the Government of India have introduced Prime Minister’s Awards for excellence in Public Administration in order to recognize extraordinary and innovative work done by officers of the Central and State Governments individually, or as a group or as organizations. A similar motivation scheme had been introduced in the DAD to motivate staff and officers to excel in their work. It has also been felt that instead of the HQrs office directly involving itself in the activity of nomination/ selection of individuals doing meritorious work, general guidelines could be provided to the Controllers to decide the Awards at their level while the HOrs office makes use of the database available with the Controllers to decide the Awards at All India Level.


2.1 It is necessary to first identify the level of admissibility of the Awards. The broad parameters governing this are as follows:

a) Two Awards for the Best Official and/ or Team of Officials (upto the Sr.AO level and including Clerks/ Auditor/ SA/ AAO/ AO/ SAO) would be decided and given by each Pr. Controller/ Controller/ CFA (Fys) which will be regulated as per Annexure-I & Annexure-II enclosed.

b) There would be 02 Awards each for main office of PCA(Fys) Kolkata & the organisation of CIA (Fys).

Note: In exceptionally deserving cases, maximum number of awards to be given by a Principal Controller/Controller etc. under 2.1(a) & (b) could be enhanced to three with the prior approval of the HQrs. office. In such cases all the three entries would have to be forwarded to the HQrs. office latest by 15″ July, 2020 for a decision.
