3. List of Standard forms for Traffic Accounts

List of forms in which documents are prepaid on machine for use in the Traffic Accounts Office



As stated in the preface to Part T, the revision of Indian Railway Code for Accounts Depart­ment was taken up in pursuance of the recommendations of the Railway Convention Committee, 1971. While Part I deals with General Accounts, Part II contains rules and procedure for the check and accounting of Traffic Receipts. 

2. The first 'Provisional' issue of Indian Railway Code for the Accounts Department, Part II was issued in 1940 and reprints of the same were issued in the years 1946, 1950, 1957 and 1969. The Revised Edition—'Provisional issue'—of the same was brought out in 1971. The present revision takes into account the changes introduced as a result of mechanisation and computerisation in respect of Goods and Passenger Traffic Earnings and also incorporates simplification of the checks due to computerisation. 

3. The procedure prescribed in this Code for "Througn" traffic refers to, traffic interchanged between the Government Railways only. For traffic fnterchanged with the non-Government Railways, the procedure already in force will continue to be followed. 

4. This code supersedes all existing rules and orders issued by the Railway Board on the subject dealt within it. Unless the contrary intention is expressed or implied in the wording of the existing rules, the provisions of this code are mandatory and binding on all Indian Railways. For devia­tion from the mandatory rules, the sanction of the Railway Ministry should be obtained. All other deviations including unimportant differences in procedure may. as heretofore, be authorised by the railway administrations themselves and, when so authorised, should be set out in detail in manuals issued by them. 

5. In accordance with the Government of India's policy, this Code is being issued as a diglot-cdftion. 

6. Any errors or omissions which may be found in this edition may please be brought to the notice of the undersigned. Equally welcome are comments and suggestions.

            3. References to Paragraphs.—Reference to paragraphs of any code is made by putting the paragraph number suffixed by the index letter of the code concerned.

II-A means paragraph 5 of Appendix II to the Indian Railway Code for the Accounts Department 

            4.
