Performance of Ordnance Factory Board

The supply target vis-à-vis achievement of Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) during last three years is given below:
RE Target

The factual data shows marginal shortfall, which is on account of reasons like delay in receipt of input from trade sources both indigenous and import origin, capacity constraints in some areas, non-realization of advance from Police units and civil market for arms and weapons, delay in indents for logistic vehicles, Non receipt of Bulk Production Clearance etc.

CAG audit has indicated instances of advance Issue of Vouchers.  These are, however, an exception.  The cases of Advance Issue Vouchers mentioned by CAG Audit have been examined in consultation with OFB for necessary corrective action.  Principal Controller of Accounts (Factories) has instructed branch Accounts Offices not to accept Issue Vouchers without dispatch details.  With the introduction of payment of Excise Duties (ED) by the Ordnance Factories on their products from 1st June, 2015, Issues of the items are linked with Excise Gate Pass thereby eliminating instances of Advance Issue Vouchers.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh in a written reply to Shri Ram Charitra Nishad in Lok Sabha today.
