(See Paragraph 701)

CLASSIFICATION OF CAPITAL AND OTHER WORKS EXPENDITURE

EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM


           

The Revised Classification of expenditure on works irrespective of whether they are charged to to Capital, Fund, DRF,DF,RSF,RRSK and DSF will come under a single Demand-16 namely Assets-Acquisition, Construction and Replacement. The Accounting Classification for works expenditure in in the form of a 8 digit numerical code. The first module- 2 digits indicates the source of fund viz., Capital, Capital Fund, DRF,DF, RRSK and DSF as the case may be. The second module of 2 digit which is numerical will represent the 2 digits corresponding to the detailed head of classification giving the details of the assets acquired, constructed or replaced. The last module which is of two digits will indicate the primary unit i.e., object of the expenditure.

For the purpose of link with the accounts of the Central Government the Plan Heads will form the Minor Heads of Railway Capital under the Major Heads “5002-Capital Outlay on Indian Railways-Commercial lines” and “5003-Capital Outlay on Indian Railways-Strategic lines.” The minor Heads classification are as follows :”

The sub and detailed heads give the breakup of the expenditure on assets in its details such as Preliminary Expenses, Land, Formation, Permanent Way, Bridges, Stations and Buildings etc. In the classification given in the following pages the details of sub-heads and detailed heads which have been given for the minor heads 1100-New Lines will be adopted for other minor heads depending upon the nature of asset being created or replaced to the extent indicated against the respective head.

For example, when track renewals are undertaken the allocation of expenditure will be given as 3141 or 3142 for renewals of rails and fastenings or sleepers and fastening as the case may be. To these 4 digits will, however, be added the code for primary unit of expenditure viz, wages or materials etc to complete the allocation e.g., 3141-04 will indicate the pay and allowances of departmental establishment engaged on renewals of rails and fastenings. The cost of permanent Way materials etc. directly supplied for this work will be allocated to 3141-04 and soon.

If a work of construction  of workshop alone is undertaken the workshop building will be represented by 4263 and the workshop equipment by 4274 (assuming the equipment is for Mechanical Department). The primary unit (or object) code will be added as the last 2 digits according to the object of expenditure.

The source of financing will be indicated in the following Source code :-

Capital

As the Plan Heads of classification coincide with the sub-heads of Demand for Grant the compilation of budget is also rendered easy and direct. The detailed explanatory notes follow the classification the correct booking of the expenditure.

EXPLANATORY NOTES

1110.

Preliminary expenses of all kinds connected with all surveys including the Final Location Survey of the line, preparation of plants and estimates for the project and administrative and general charges incurred after the Abstract Estimate of a project is sanctioned and before the work construction is completed are initially charged to "345- Indian Railways - Policy, Formulation, Direction, Research and other Misc. Organisations-Surveys" and transferred to this head when the construction of a project has been actually completed. The cost of preliminary expenses connected with extensive alterations to a project requiring the employment of a distinct staff after the general project has been sanctioned or commenced should also be initially charged to "345-lndian Railways-Policy, Formulation Direction, Research and other Misc. Organisations-Surveys" and transferred to this head when the project has been completed. The cost of petty alignment etc. for which no special staff is engaged should be charged to the estimates for construction.

 

Note.- For the purpose of above rule, a construction should be deemed to have been 'completed' when the line is opened for any kind of traffic. The adjustment from "345 - Indian Railways - Policy Formulation, Direction, Research and other Misc. Organisations-Surveys1' to this head should therefore be made in the year in which the line is opened for any kind of traffic.

1111, 1112,  1113.

All preliminary expenses relating to surveys including Final Location Surveys are initially charged to "345 - Indian Railways Policy, Formulation, Direction, Research and other Misc. Organisations - Surveys" and transferred to this head when the construction of a project has been completed. 

 

Note - Same as under explanatory note under the head 1110 above.

1114.

Miscellaneous. This head is intended to record all items of expenditure which cannot be recorded under any of the other prescribed heads of classification. The expenditure earlier booked under the minor head Cap-VIII Miscellaneous would be booked under this head. The details of this expenditure in the printed accounts should continue to be shown as before.

1120.

Land- Land includes all expenditure incurred in acquiring land, viz., compensation to the owners or occupiers of such land including payments for houses, trees, crops or other property situated on such land; compensation for damages, loss or injury caused to adjacent property by operations incidental to the construction of the railways, salaries, fees, allowances, etc. of civil officer and other persons deputed or employed on the valuation, transfer or demarcation of land, and all charges connected with the primary dabbling and temporary marks necessary to enable the civil authorities to determine the boundaries.

 

Exceptions- (a)  The compensation payable for land acquired temporarily under Section 35 of the Land Acquisition Act, should be charged to the work or purpose concerned.                

(b) Land required for the manufacture of materials, also for the acquisition of material by quarrying, mining, boring or other operation, and payments for royalty, mining rights, etc., connected with the same are not chargeable to this heads but may be dealt with as part of the cost of the manufacturing operations or if more convenient, charged off finally to the work concerned. 

(c) Permanent boundary marks are included under "1145-Fencing".
