PFMS

 
 

Public Financial Management System (PFMS) is an initiative of Ministry of Finance, Govt. of India which provides a web based application for e-payment of Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT)/ Non DBT payments for both Aaadhar based & Non- Aaadhar based bank accounts with the objective of bringing transformational accountability and transparency in the Government Financial Management Systems and promoting overall good governance in India.
