The Office of the Principal Accountant General (Accounts and Entitlement) came into existence in its present form in March 1984 consequent upon the re-structuring of the combined Audit and Accounts Offices of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department.

The Office is headed by the Principal Accountant General (A&E) who is assisted by two Group Officers, a Welfare Officer, 24 Branch Officers and other staff. The office is organized into two distinct functional wings placed under two Group Officers viz. Administration and Accounts. The Entitlement functions viz. Pensions and GPF of State Government employees have been transferred to the State Government and are being dealt with by the Director of Pensions and the Director of State Insurance & Provident Fund respectively. This office thus has no entitlement functions except in respect of Judges of the Rajasthan High Court. The Voucher Level Computerization  and residual Entitlement functions are being looked after by the Group Officer in charge of Accounts.
