We are the inheritors of the Accountant General, North-Western Provinces and Oudh, Agra. Mr.G.Lushington, the then Accountant General, shifted the Office to Allahabad, in October 1862. Boats transported records as there were no Railways those days. The office was known as that of the Accountant General, United Provinces and Oudh. Consequent to some sort of separation of Accounts, the Chief Accounts Officer of the provincial Government took over the Accounting responsibility from 1st April, 1926, and. the office was titled as that of 'Director of Audit of the United provinces.' An Officer-in-Charge, Central pay and Accounts Office, was also appointed for accounting the Central transactions in the United Provinces. A separate cadre of Pay & Accounts Officers, under the control of the Officer on Special Duty, Finance Department Government of India was formed on the 24th January 1927. This experiment failed within a short span of five years and the Office of the Accountant General, United Provinces (U.P.) came into being on the 1st November 1931. From the 30th January 1950, the abbreviation "U.P" stood for Uttar Pradesh and not "United Provinces". The office was bifurcated into that of Accountant General-I and Accountant General-II on the 1st November 1971, on the functional basis. The next Re-organization took place on the 1st February, 1977, and the office of the Accountant General-III was created taking the rapid expansion in Revenue Audit and phenomenal growth in expenditure into account and, as a sequel to that, Audit Report on Revenue Receipts is being published separately from 1972-73 and the Audit Report (Commercial) from 1973-74. The offices of the Indian Audit & Accounts Department were restructured into separate Audit and Accounts & Entitlement offices with effect from 1st March, 1984. The offices of the Accountant General (Audit)-I and Accountant General (Audit)-II, thus, came into existence from that date. The office of the Accountant General (Audit)-I was co-located with the Accounts & Entitlement offices in the old premises. The Audit Offices were shifted to "Satyanishtha Bhawan" in January 1996. The office of the Accountant General (Audit)-I was upgraded to the office of the Principal Accountant General (Audit)-I in August 2002 and was renamed as office of the Principal Accountant General (Civil Audit) with effect from September 2004.
