(a)to (b): The Central Government/Ministry of Finance allocate funds through budgetary process to different Ministries/Departments for each of the 28 Centrally Sponsored Scheme. The respective Ministry/Department in turn allocates the Central Government share for Centrally Sponsored Scheme as per Scheme guideline to the States/UTs through the Consolidated Funds of the States. Concerned Ministry/Department periodically monitors individual scheme. The release of funds/installment by Central Government Ministry/Department is based on the furnished Utilization Certificate of the penultimate (last to last) installment. For avoiding the back-loading of expenditure towards the end of the year, there is a ceiling of expenditure to the extent of 33% and 15% of budgetary outlay for respective scheme in the last quarter and the last month of the financial year respectively. To establish an efficient funds flow system, the funds of CSSs are released to the State through the Public Financial Management System (PFMS).
