MHA submits ATR on Shunglu report to PMO



New Delhi: The Home Ministry has submitted its Action Taken Report on the findings of Shunglu Committee that probed alleged irregularities in execution of Commonwealth Games projects to the Prime Minister's Office, saying some of the findings have no documentary evidence.

Official sources said after receiving the responses of the Delhi government, Delhi Development Authority, New Delhi Municipal Council and Municipal Corporation of Delhi on the Shunglu Committee report, the Home Ministry has prepared the ATR and submitted to the PMO.

"We have conveyed to the PMO that some of the findings of Shunglu Committee seems to be prima facie correct while some others seem to be based on presumptions and in some others there were no documentary evidence to substantiate the allegations," a source said.

While forwarding the report to the agencies concerned, the Home Ministry had asked them to explain their position on the findings of the Shunglu Committee and what action they were taking on it.

The Shunglu Committee has allegedly held the agencies responsible for lack of oversight and decisions that led to cost escalation.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had on October 25 appointed a two-member high-level committee under the chairmanship of former Comptroller and Auditor General V K Shunglu to look into various aspects of corruption and other deficiencies in the conduct of mega sporting event held here between October 3 and October 14 last year.
