    Introduction to the Accounting System of AMC

    The accounting system of Amdavad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has been developed to comply with the statutory requirement of The Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporation Act (BPMC Act), 1949. The system is designed on the basis of the accounting principles and the methods of applying those principles in the preparation and presentation of financial statements by AMC. AMC has maintained credit rating for Municipal Bonds at "CARE AA" (Double A) from CARE Rating. Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has issued Municipal Bonds first time in India in the year 1998, 2002, 2004 and 2005.

    In order to align the National Level perspectives of reforms in municipal finance and financial management with that of the State Government, Ministry of Urban Development, (GOI) have formulated Municipal Accounting Manual. The manual contains accounting policies, procedures and guidelines to ensure correct and timely recording of Municipal transactions so that accurate & relevant financial reports are generated.

    The books of accounts are maintained as per double entry accounting system and financial statements are prepared as per accrual system of accounting. Hence, the system can be said to be matching with National Municipal Accounting Manual. The reports generated meets with requirement of various user groups. Since the adoption of double entry accounting system, we have Public Financial Management cycle which includes following internal control.
