Overview

This Report contains 16 audit paragraphs (including three general paragraphs) pertaining to Civil and Commercial portion and two performance reviews. There is a separate chapter on Integrated Audit of the Urban Development Department. According to the existing arrangements, copies of the draft audit paragraphs and draft performance reviews were sent to the Secretary of the Department concerned by the Accountant General (Audit) with a request to furnish replies within six weeks. Replies were not received from the department concerned in respect of ten paragraphs.

Performance Audit of the scheme Modernisation of Police Force revealed that the scheme was implemented in the State without a long term Perspective Plan as envisaged in guidelines and distribution of vehicles was skewed in favour of Headquarters/officers to the detriment of the field units. Though the State had been declared 'A' category by the Government of India, being maximum security threat, the Department had not endeavoured to gear up its weaponry to face the threat. The satellite based integrated Police Communication Network and Common Integrated Police Application system were not functioning in the State and Forensic Science Laboratory was not functioning in a modem environment. The training and housing needs of the force had not been adequately addressed by the Department and there was lack of monitoring and evaluation mechanism.

Performance Audit of irrigation schemes revealed that the schemes were implemented in the State without adequate planning leading to non-completion/abandonment of projects. Water charges were not collected from the users to meet the operation and maintenance cost of the projects. The records of the Department were also not reliable as projects stated to be completed were found to be incomplete/abandoned during physical verification of the sites. Hence, neither was impact assessment of the projects on agriculture undertaken by the Department nor could be ascertained in audit. Besides, there were several cases of fictitious, doubtful and unfruitful expenditure on the projects apart from inadequate monitoring of the implementation both at the State and Central Government levels. These issues indicate that irrigation projects in the State were not implemented efficiently.
