On an earlier occasion, the PSC had not allowed the Finance Department to check its records. The PSC chairman's stance was that the Finance Department has no power to conduct such inspections. However, the government and Finance Minister K.M. Mani stood firm that the Finance Department's inspection wing had the power to check how each paise released from the state exchequer is being utilised.
The Finance Department has decided to go ahead with the action now as authorities feel that the PSC is not complying with financial discipline despite its objections.
