Funds to ATMA       
8.   ATMA is a district level autonomous body (registered Society), which is a convergence of line departments like Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Dairy, Fisheries, and Sericulture etc. For the MACP project, funds to ATMA for training and demonstration programs will be released for two line departments, viz. Dept. of Agriculture and Dept. of Animal Husbandry. So the budgetary grants which are received by the Commissioner Agriculture through BDS will explicitly mention in the budget release order the grants under Agriculture and Animal Husbandry departments. After the Dept. of Agriculture in Mantralaya releases grants through BDS to the Commissioner Agriculture, the DDO in the office of Commissioner Agriculture will access the BDS and submit bill to the treasury. After passing of the bill, the treasury will deposit the amount of bill through a system of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or directly to the accounts of the concerned ATMA. The ATMA account for MACP Project would be operated by the DSAO who is the ex-officio Project Director of ATMA and the Drawing and Disbursing Officer in his office. The ATMAs in the phase II and Phase III districts will not be eligible for fund releases unless a dedicated project accountant is recruited for each ATMA.
