Computerisation of treasuries in Jharkhand has not only ensured an efficient financial management, but has also eliminated the possibility of forged withdrawals, according to the Jharkhand Economic Survey 2010-11.
"All 24 treasuries and seven sub-treasuries are computerised and connected to JHARNET (Jharkhand State Information & Communication).
"All banks which conduct business of the treasuries are also linked with the state data centre and the treasuries concerned with high speed leased lines," said the survey.
JHARNET is the communication network built for the use of the state government and its various departments.

"The details of every bill passed in any of the treasuries are made available to the state headquarters and the banks immediately... eliminating long process of bill processing and realisation," it says.
