The UT administration today constituted an Administrative Council, headed by the Lt-Governor as its chairman and his Advisers as members, to dispose of the cases of various kinds, comprising those involving legislation, including the issue of ordinances.

According to a government order, the Chief Secretary would function as Secretary to the Administrative Council. The Administrative Secretaries of the Departments of Finance, Planning, Development & Monitoring, General Administration, Law or of any other department would be invited to the meetings of the council as required by it.

The order said, “Cases which would be brought before the Cabinet (Administrative Council) include cases involving legislation, including the issue of ordinances, proposals to summon or prorogue or dissolve the legislature of the state, address of Governor to the legislature and cases involving the question as to whether a member of the House of the legislature of the state is subject to any disqualification.”

“Other cases to be brought before the council include the annual financial statements to be laid before the legislature and demands for supplementary, additional or excess grants and cases in which the attitude of the government to any resolution or a Bill to be moved in the legislature is to be determined,” the government order said.

The Administrative Council would also deal with “the cases of the annual audit review of the finance of the report of the Public Accounts Committee, proposals involving any important change of policy or directives or embodying changes in the administrative system, proposals for appointments, or for taking any action inconsistent with the recommendations of the Public Service Commission and cases in which a minister desires decision or direction of the Cabinet in a matter of importance on a subject assigned to his charge.”

“Cases in which a difference of opinion arises between two or more ministers and a Cabinet decision is desired would also be dealt by the Administrative Council,” the order said.

Similarly, the council would also deal with any proposal for the institution of prosecution by the government against the advice tendered by the Department of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs.

“Except the cases of forest leases and sale of forest produce, including minor forest produce, proposals involving alienation, either temporary or permanent, or sale of government property, including land and temporary lease of immovable property, where such lease of government property is not in accordance with the rules or a general scheme already approved by the Cabinet and the value thereof exceeds Rs 50,000 in each case will also be brought before the Cabinet,” the order said.
