Reasons for discrepancies: The possible reasons for discrepancy between physical stock and
stock shown in records may be due to the following:

• Shortages of marginal due to spoilage, evaporation, wastage in material handling, break- down in handing and storing. Increase in weight due to absorption of water etc.

• Items of materials placed in wrong location.

• Pilferage and theft from stores by insiders and outsiders.

• Issue and receipt of stock without proper recording and maintenance of stores recording and accounting.

• Stock return not recorded properly.
