Common Process is as follows: 
  1. The materials are received in the stores in presence of the Security In charge. Original copy of the invoice/ challan is maintained with the stores department. Copy of Invoice/ Challan is given to the security.
  2. A Goods received note (GRN) is raised immediately for the goods received in the following manner:
  3. If SPO, GRN is prepared as per the rate prescribed in SPO
  4. If Purchase Order, GRN is prepared as per the invoice/challan received as per the rate & quantity prescribed in the Purchase Order. For regular vendors if the purchase is below Rs 500/- GRN is raised directly and for purchases above Rs 500/, a Purchase order is raised.

    Reasons for Multiple GRN’s.
    1. After placing the order, when we receive the Delivery Challan/ Invoice, certain items are not a part of contracted rate, and hence, for items that are a part of SPO, a separate GRN is raised, and for items that are not a part of contracted rate, a separate GRN is raised, and hence, there are multiple GRN’s printed for the same Invoice/ Challan.
    2. In Case of a Purchase order, there are times, all materials mentioned on the Purchase order are not delivered together. Items are delivered partly due to unavailability of items at times with the vendor. He then delivers the remaining items from the previous order with the next order and makes a common delivery challan/ Invoice. Hence, again, multiple GRN’s are raised for the same.
    Procedure for Cash Purchase:
    1. The stores department in charge makes the Advance Cash Voucher which is authorised by the Principal and the stores department signs for receiving the same.
    2. The items are purchased and the process of stamping at the gate and inward of materials is followed.
    3. A GRN is raised for the Invoice
    4. The user department HOD checks all materials and signs as an acknowledgement on the Invoice.
    5. Invoice/ Challan is further authorized by the HOD’s and Invoice is finally authorised by the Principal.
