Overview

This Report contains 19 audit paragraphs (including three general paragraphs) pertaining to Civil, Revenue and Commercial portion and one performance review. There is a separate chapter on Integrated Audit of the Agriculture 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 departments concerned in respect of four paragraphs.

The objective of the Department to improve the economic condition through implementation of various developmental schemes for the under developed areas remained largely unachieved due to a significant shortfall in completion of projects coupled with lacunae in the planning process. There was also persistent savings as the Department was unable to absorb the funds provided by GOI. Besides, the State Government delayed release of Central funds to the Department. There were instances where payments were made without actual execution of works. Monitoring and evaluation of the projects was not carried out and as such, the impact of implementation of these programmes remained un-assessed.

Director General of Police, Nagaland, Kohima drew an amount of RS 18 crore against fictitious bills. Project Engineer, Police Engineering Project Division, Chemukedima fraudulently drew RS 4.11 lakh on fictitious bills and RS 2.92 lakh by inflating the totals of salary bills. Superintendent of Police, Dimapur fraudulently drew RS 9.11 lakh by inflating the totals of salary bills. There was a suspected misappropriation of an amount of RS 3.73 crore during the period from December 2008 to June 2009 in the Public Works Department (Roads and Bridges) South Division, Kohima which was done by recording higher amounts in the Cash Book against issue of cheques for lesser amounts to other divisions.
