The GFRs are rules and orders dealing with matters involving public finances.General Financial Rules were issued for the first time in 1947 bringing all existing orders and instructions together in one place pertaining to public finance. These have subsequently been modified and issued as GFRs 1963 and GFRs 2005.

The revised GFR-2017 aims to provide a framework within which an organization manages its business in a financially prudent manner without compromising its flexibility to deal with varied situations, the GFR-2017 enables an improved, efficient and effective framework of fiscal management while providing the necessary flexibility to facilitate timely delivery of services.

GeM (Government e-marketplace) – As per rule 149 of the GFR-2017 procurement of Goods and Services from GeM became mandatory for Ministries/Departments of Central Government. GeM has its own set of procedures for the procurement of Goods & Services available on GeM.
