New Delhi: Under pressure on the issue of
corruption, the government on Monday informed Parliament that the
recommendations of the panel to bring full transparency in
public procurement are being examined by a Committee of
Secretaries (CoS).

An expert group under the chairmanship of former
bureaucrat Vinod Dhall was mandated to suggest measures to
ensure full transparency in government procurement and
contracts.

It was also to suggest legal, institutional and systemic
measures necessary to strengthen public procurement practices.

The Committee has since given its recommendations to the
government.

These recommendations "are being examined by the
Committee of Secretaries," Minister of State for Commerce and
Industry Jyotiraditya Scindia said in a written reply in the
Lok Sabha.

The Dhall Committee comprised representatives from
departments of Commerce, Defence, Railways, Urban Development,
Expenditure, Planning Commission and Cabinet Secretariat.

The government is under a lot of pressure inside and
outside Parliament on the issue of charges of corruption in
public contracts, the recent being the Commonwealth Games.
