Panchayati Raj Institutions Accounting Software (PRIASoft) is one of the applications developed as part of Panchayat Enterprise Suite (PES) under e-panchayat Mission Mode Project (MMP) (http://epanchayat.gov.in). PRIASoft aims to keep track of all the in-flow (Receipts) and out- flow (Payments) of the PRIs. PRIASoft is highly user friendly and simple to use. It not only facilitates maintenance of accounts under MAS, but also ensures monitoring of allocated funds, expenditure incurred, inter-PRIs transfers/advances and automatic generation of desired reports, registers and other financial information just by making basic transaction entries from the vouchers. PRIASoft is a Centralized Accounting Software intended for maintenance of accounts by all the three levels of Panchayats viz., District, Block and Village Panchayat. The software would not only serve the purpose of maintenance of accounts but also works as a good financial management tool, leading to the following distinct advantages: a) Improve transparency and accountability of the Panchayats in managing large volume of funds. b) Enhance credibility of Panchayats which would induce greater devolution of funds to Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs). c) Enhance ability of higher authorities to effectively monitor flow and usage of funds for a better planning of the requirement of PRIs.
