New Delhi: Parliament`s Public Accounts
Committee on Thursday sought explanations from officials of the
Petroleum Ministry on CAG`s findings related to shortcomings
in production sharing contract, investment returns and the
like in the KG Basin and other gas fields.
In today`s meeting, chaired by PAC Chief Murli Manohar
Joshi, the government faced a volley of questions on the
observations made by CAG in its report on hydrocarbons.

G C Chaturvedi and Directorate General of Hydrocarbons S K
Srivastava, among others.
