Overview

This Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India on General and Social Sectors for the year ending 31 March 2014 includes three reviews and three long paragraphs dealing with the results of performance audit of selected programmes and departments as well as audit of the financial transactions of the Government departments/autonomous bodies, societies etc. A summary of the important audit findings is given below.

Performance audit is undertaken to ensure whether the Government programmes have achieved the desired objectives at the minimum cost and the intended benefits have accrued to the targeted beneficiaries. The State of Uttar Pradesh, covering an area of 240.93 lakh ha, has seven river basins viz. Ganga, Gandak, Gomti, Ghaghra, Ramganga, Son and Yamuna in which 38 districts are prone to recurring floods. Major audit findings relating to performance audit of Flood Control are discussed below: Financial management was inadequate as against the budgetary provisions of RS 3,938.11 crore only RS 2,452.17 crore (62 per cent) was spent while RS 1,485.94 crore (38 per cent) was surrendered.

The Government of Uttar Pradesh did not prepare the required long range basin-wise and region-wise master plans. Various structural and non-structural measures for long term flood control as suggested by Rashtriya Barh Ayog; Ganga Flood Control Commission; Central Water Commission; and Planning Commission, Government of India were not adopted. Flood control works, mainly anti-erosion works, were planned without conducting any detailed and holistic hydrological and morphological studies, which led to execution of anti-erosion works repeatedly on the same/adjacent sites.
