CAG office understaffed, has 22,905 vacancies

The government on Friday said the office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has vacancies for 22,900 personnel.



New Delhi: The government on Friday said the office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has vacancies for 22,900 personnel.

"The office of the CAG have informed that against a sanctioned strength of 67,063 (in the Group B, C and D cadres) 44,158 persons are in position as on March 1, 2010," Minister
of State for Finance SS Palanimanickam said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha.

Of the total shortfall of 22,905, shortage in Group `B` was 2,944, Group `C` (17,297) and Group `D` (2,664), he added.

In May, CAG Vinod Rai had said the office plans to hire 2,000-3,000 semi-skilled people every year to handle the increasing work-load.

With audits being taken up in a host of areas including private firms now, the process demands trained manpower, he had said.
