Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government today asked its departments to submit all bills in the government Treasuries by March 29, 2020.
In a letter to Secretaries and Heads of Department, Finance Secretary Ashok K. Meena stated some Departments/Heads of the Departments may not be able to submit the bills in the Treasuries by 13.3.2020 and 20.3.2020 for some reasons and others. Besides, some Departments/Heads of the Departments may find it difficult to adhere to the deadlines of 26.3.2020 for submission of the bills in Treasuries due to lockdown declared by the State government for COVID-19.
