CAG asks govt to ensure that CWG records are not destroyed
New Delhi: The government auditor CAG has
written to the Cabinet Secretary to ensure that no records
from the office of the Commonwealth Games organising committee
are removed till the audit is complete.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), sources
said, in October had written to the Cabinet Secretary to take
steps to ensure that no damage was done to papers relating to
award of contracts for the Games.
The CAG, sources said, is worried that records of OC were
being bungled and some important files have been found
The official auditor, which is probing the expenses
incurred for organising the CWG, is slated to submit its audit
report to the Parliament by January end.
The two-week long Commonwealth Games have reportedly cost
the nation an estimated Rs 70,000 crore. The CAG is probing
the contracts given by various agencies for construction of
infrastructural facilities, equipment and conduct of Games.
The CAG is vetting the expenditures incurred in different
Commonwealth Games related projects. The Games were held here
between October 3-14.
The audit process by CAG teams began in the middle of
August. However, it was halted between September 24-October
14 in view of the Games.
A host of other agencies like the Income Tax department,
Enforcement Directorate and Central Vigilance Commission are
investigating the Games expenditures.
Besides, on October 15, the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
also appointed a committee headed by former CAG VK Shunglu
to look into the various aspects of the organisation of the
games. The committee is expected to submit its report in 90
