In order to introduce the Double Entry Accounting System, each Urban Local Body under Kolkata Metropolitan Area has already been provided with one Accounts and Finance Coordinator under the KUSP Programme. For the other Municipalities outside KMA area the work of appointing Accounts and Finance Coordinator has been taken up.
