PAC suggests SIT-CBI inquiry into construction irregularities

Alleging that a private developer made profits of over Rs 5,000 crore at the expense of the state government, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Maharashtra Legislature has recommended a SIT probe coupled with a CBI inquiry into the construction of New Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi as well as Andheri RTO and High Mount Guest House here.

The PAC report which is headed by BJP MLA Girish Bapat said the CAG has already pointed out irregularities in the construction.

‘The PAC spoke to departmental secretaries, sought written explanations and inspected the work done as well. The Committee is of the opinion that rules were not followed while getting work done from the developer. Proper MOU was not done and extensions were given which resulted in losses to the government. RTO’s testing track and residential building works are still incomplete and the quality of work is not good,’ Bapat said while tabling the PAC report in the Maharashtra legislative assembly.
