Considering that presently, the accounting and financial reporting practices of educational institutions in India are oriented towards meeting the needs of the governing bodies running them and educational institutions follow not only diverse accounting practices but also different basis of accounting, the Group has recommended that all educational institutions should be mandated to apply accrual basis of accounting; Accounting Standards issued by the ICAI should be made mandatory to educational institutions; Fund based accounting may be introduced for Earmarked / Designated Funds; All educational institutions should follow a common format for presentation of its general purpose financial statements to ensure proper accountability, financial discipline, end-use of funds and to meet the needs of stakeholders. It is also recommended that the statutes having specific formats for financial reporting by educational institution may also modify the same in line with the suggested formats and Ministry of Human Resource Development in coordination with ICAI shall organise capacity building programme to train the staff of educational institutions.
