New Delhi: Following objections by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) regarding the status of the Delhi Integrated Multi-modal Transit Service (DIMTS), the state government has set up a panel to look into the role it can play in carrying out transport projects.

To be headed by Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta, the six- member panel will decide whether the DIMTS, formed as a special purpose vehicle by the Delhi government in 2004, can work as a consultancy or execute the transport jobs.

The panel will submit the report within next month, Mehta said. The decision to set up the panel was taken following a controversy pertaining to the DIMTS that executed the BRT project.

The CAG had asked the Delhi government whether DIMTS is functioning in the capacity of a private consultant or as a Government undertaking and its role in the Government's transport projects.

Mehta said that DIMTS is not an infrastructure company, but was formed with the intention of providing expertise on projects planned by the government.
