The formation of new State of Rajasthan, after integration of Rajputana States was achieved on 30th March, 1949.

The office of the Accountant General, Rajasthan, started functioning from 1st October, 1949 at Jaipur in part of the City Palace, at Jaleb Chowk and hired accommodation in ‘Khwasji ki Haweli’ known as ‘Achrol House’ with a branch office under the charge of Dy. Accountant General at Jodhpur. Shri Rang Bihari Lal was the first Accountant General. The first consolidated account for Rajasthan including transaction of Defence, Railways and Postal Department was prepared for the second half of the year 1949-50.

For providing adequate accommodation and addressing the problem of congestions and dispersal of offices in several buildings situated at considerable distance, His Highness Sarmand-I-Raja Hai Hindustan Raj Rajendra Shri Maharajadhiraj Sir Sawai Man Singh Bahadur, GCSI, GCIE, LLD. Maharaja of Jaipur and Rajpramukh of Rajasthan laid down the foundation stone for the present office building on 17th February, 1955.

Further, the office was bifurcated into two offices in April 1982 – “Accountant General-I and Accountant General-II”. The former was entrusted with the work of accounting of the State transactions and Civil Audit. The latter was entrusted with the work of audit of State Government’s Companies, Corporations and Commercial Undertakings and audit of Receipts (both Central and State).

In March 1984, the offices were further reorganized into two distinct functional categories, namely Accountant General (Accounts and Entitlement) and the Accountant General (Audit). Shri V. Doraiswami was the Accountant General (A&E) and Shri S.C.Anand was Accountant General (Audit).

At present, shri D.P. Yadav is working as 33rd Principal Accountant General in this office.
