Appropriation Accounts are the accounts reflecting the Government’s expenditure in a financial year compared against the amounts of voted grants and charged appropriations, as specified in the schedules appended to the Appropriation Act passed by Parliament. These accounts contain information regarding re-appropriation of the sanctioned provision from one unit of appropriation to another, saving and excess of expenditure if any against these appropriation as well as the supplementary grants.  The appropriation account is an aid for the Parliament and the Public Accounts Committee to ascertain the performance of Government against the budgeted provisions.
