With over 250 years of dedicated service behind us, we are one of the oldest departments under the Government of India. The Defence Accounts Department is entrusted with the payment, accounting and internal audit of the expenditure and receipts of the Armed Forces as also auxiliary services viz. Defence Ordnance Factories, DRDO Labs/Projects, Coast Guard, DGQA, DGBR, DG NCC, Defence Estates, CSD etc. The Department handled a budget of Rs. 109,000 crores for the year 2008-09 which constituted 20.82% of the Government of India’s total Non- plan outlay. This has increased by about 34% to Rs. 145,695 crores this year. Further, the Department will handle a defence pension budget of Rs. 21,790 crores, DGBR budget of Rs. 2451 crores, , DAD budget of Rs. 1002 crores and CSD annual turnover of about Rs. 6869.5 crores. Thus in this financial year, we would be handling an over-all budget of Rs. 1,82,242 crores.

With our vast network of offices and a dedicated professional task force, we strive to live upto the motto of being “In the Service of Services” and contribute to the defence of the country. We operate from around 983 offices located at 230 stations over the length and breadth of the country constantly responding to the needs of the Armed Forces and allied organizations. At present, we are in the midst of computerisation of our offices on a massive scale and once this is completed, all our offices will be networked and would be on-line.
