Projects worth Rs 400 crores remain unaudited – RTI reply
An application was filed with the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation under the Right to information (RTI) Act seeking to get information about the pending audit objections, objectionable amount and recoverable amount of all civic departments since the establishment of the corporation i.e. from 1982-83 onwards.
The 13-page reply, provided by the audit department of the municipal corporation, shows the details of 126 civic departments and offices and states that many departments have not submitted the required documents related to the completed projects which amount to around Rs. 399 crores as yet.
The departments are required to submit documents of various permissions they were granted while implementing different projects. As the departments have failed to produce the documents, the amount spent on such projects remain categorized as ‘pending’ with the audit department. The municipal commissioner of Pimpri Chinchwad has assured that the matter will be looked into and actions will be taken accordingly.
