This Report on the Finances of the Government of Manipur is being brought out with a view to assess objectively the financial performance of the State during the year 2009-10. The aim of this Report is to provide the State Government with timely inputs based on actual data so that there is a better insight into both well performing as well as ill performing schemes/programmes of the Government. In order to give a perspective to the analysis, an effort has been made to compare the achievements with the targets envisaged by the State Government in Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act, 2005 as well as in the Budget  estimates of 2009-10. A comparison has been made to see whether the State has given adequate fiscal priority to developmental, social sector and capital  expenditure compared to other Northeast (NE) states and whether the expenditure has been effectively absorbed by the intended beneficiaries.

The Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) has been commenting upon the Government's finances for over four years since the FRBM legislation and have published four Reports already. Since these comments formed part of the Civil Audit Report, it was felt that the audit findings on State finances remained camouflaged in the large body of audit findings on compliance and performance  audits. The obvious fallout of this well-intentioned but all-inclusive reporting was that the financial management portion of these findings did not receive proper attention. In recognition of the need to bring State finances to centre-stage once again, a stand-alone Report on State Government finances is considered an appropriate audit response to this challenge. Accordingly, from the report year 2009 onwards, C&AG had decided to bring out a separate volume titled 'Report on State Finances.' This Report is the second in this endeavour.
Based on the audited accounts of the Government of Manipur for the year ending March 2010, this Report provides an analytical review of the Annual Accounts of the State Government. The Report is structured in three Chapters.                      
Chapter I is based on the audit of Finance Accounts and makes an assessment of the Government of Manipur's fiscal position as on 31 March 2010. It provides an  insight into trends in committed expenditure, borrowing pattern besides a brief account of Central funds transferred directly to the State implementing agencies.      
Chapter II is based on audit of Appropriation Accounts and gives the grant-by'grant description of appropriations and the manner in which the allocated resources were managed by the service delivery departments.      
Chapter III is an inventory of Manipur Government's compliance with various reporting requirements and financial rules.
