Indian Civil Accounts Service (ICAS) Controlled by Ministry of Finance

The separation of accounts from an audit at the Union level has led to the creation of the new Indian Civil Accounts Service cadre. The Controller and Auditor General of India does not, however, control this cadre but the Secretary (Expenditure) in the Ministry of Finance (Government of India) exercises this function.

Indian Civil Accounts Service Eligibility

The eligibility criterion for the Indian Civil Accounts Service exam is actually similar as for the other services. Once the candidate clears the civil services and gets an allotment to the Indian foreign service as per his rank, he has to go through specified training.

Indian Civil Accounts Service (ICAS) Recruitment and Training

ICAS (Indian Civil Accounts Organization) has the major responsibilities in the execution of financial management services for the Indian Government. CGA (Controller General of Accounts) is the apex of the office and thus supervises for managing the system.

After successfully clearing the exam officers selected for ICAS are trained in three phases. The officers undergo a training session for a time duration of 10 months to National Institute of Financial Management (NIFM), Faridabad and National Academy of Direct Taxes at Nagpur with officers selected for Accounts and Finance Services, Indian Defence Accounts Services, Indian Postal-Telecom.

Further NIFM offers candidates selected for ICAS, PG diploma in Public Financial Management and also taken overseas for Foreign Country experience. In the year 2011, the selected candidates for ICAS were taken to Manchester, in 2012 Malaysia and Singapore and in 2013 University of California and US.

After the NIFM training, the ICAS officers are then sent to the third and the last stage of training to INGAF which is the Institute of Government Accounts and Finance. Here the ICAS Officers are sent for the on-job- training that is (OJT) from the office of CGA.

INGAF was established in 1992 and is very well known for its brilliance in Public Policy, Finance, Audit and Management fields. The programs held by INGAF seeks attention not merely of professionals from Central Government but also of the State Administration and Union Province, Civic Division undertakings, Sovereign Bodies and Banks.
