    Solution :

    [a] The most important function of the committee is to suggest economies in expenditure. The Committee is strictly not concerned with the policy of the government. Its business is to ensure that within the framework of the policy laid down by the government and the House, only the minimum expenditure needed for the purpose of fulfilling the objectives of the government would be incurred. other Functions Include
    (1) To report what economics, improvements in organisation, efficiency or administrative reform, consistent with the policies underlying the estimates may be effected.
    (2) To suggest alternative policies in order to bring about efficiency and economy in administration;
    (3) To examine whether the money is well laid out within the limits of the policy implied in the estimates;
    (4) To suggest the form in which the estimates can be presented to the parliament.
    (5) If the committee finds that a particular policy laid down by parliament is not leading to the expected or desired results or is leading to waste, it has a duty to bring it to the notice of the Lok Sabha that a change in policy is called for.
