About the Module
Government of India (GoI) has taken a decision to introduce
accrual-based double entry accounting system in ULBs. Government
of India also had other considerations in taking the decision like
Hon’ Supreme Court’s directive and Finance Commission’s
recommendations. They have developed National Municipal Accounting
Manual (NMAM), communicated it to all the States across the
country and advised the States to develop State specific manuals.
Incidentally, accounting reforms have become necessary due to the
ongoing reform process initiated by the Finance Commissions.
On the suggestions of GoI, Government of Andhra Pradesh have in collaboration with Center for Good Governance (CGG), Hyderabad has developed Andhra Pradesh Municipal Accounting Manual (APMAM) and issued instruction to all ULBs in the State to switchover the accounting system from cash basis to double entry accrual basis. The NMAM and APMAM have followed the principles of accrual based double entry accounting system.
