This Report contains four Performance audits and nine compliance audit paragraphs. According to the existing arrangements, copies of the draft compliance audit and draft performance reviews were sent to the concerned Secretaries/Principal Secretaries to the State Government by the Principal Accountant General (Audit) with a request to furnish replies within six weeks.

The Secretaries/Principal Secretaries were also reminded for replies. Besides, a demi-official letter was also sent to the Chief Secretary to the State Government on the issues raised in the draft audit paragraphs, draft performance reviews etc., for effective inclusion of the views/comments of the Government in the Audit Report. Despite such efforts, replies were not received in respect of two compliance audit paragraphs from the concerned Principal Secretaries/Secretaries to the State Government. The Mizoram Home (Police) Department is mainly responsible for upholding and enforcing the law impartially, to protect life, liberty, public property, human rights, dignity of the members of the public, to enforce internal security, and prevent crimes.

The Department needs to modernize and to adequately equip its police forces with the objective of meeting the challenges of law and order and internal security. The performance audit of the functioning of the Department revealed that the Department was successful in upholding and enforcing the law impartially, protecting life, liberty and public property by maintaining a significant lower average crime rate in the State against the All India average crime rate. Shortcomings were noticed in planning, irregular parking of funds, retention of heavy cash balances, purchase of stationery items and repairs of vehicles by the Director General of Police/Inspector General of Police (Police Headquarters) as well as heads of District Officers beyond their delegated financial power, besides, irregularities in execution of works.
