CAG pulls up Centre for ‘deficient’ monitoring of expenditure

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) on Tuesday pulled up the Centre for “deficient” monitoring of expenditure as Utilisation Certificates were not obtained in 37,569 cases totaling expenses of Rs 51,527 crore as of March end.

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) on Tuesday presented a report on Accounts of Union Government in Parliament. Utilisation Certificates are the only mechanism for the ministries to verify the money has been utilised for the purpose for which it was given.

“In 26 Ministries/Departments, 37,569 UCs involving Rs 51,527.1 crore which were due on March 31, 2015 were outstanding which indicates deficient monitoring and follow-up mechanisms in the Ministries/Departments concerned,” the report said.
