What is CAG
The CAG is a typical file-based government auditing
agency. It stresses on reporting deviations from set
procedures and policies and fails to recognise that the
deviations have resulted in speeding up economic growth.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) (Hindi:
- ) of India is an authority,
established by the Constitution of India.
Under Chapter V article 149to 151 of the Indian
Constitution, CAG audits all receipts and expenditure of
the Government of India and the state governments,
including those of bodies and authorities substantially
financed by the government. The CAG is also the external
auditor of government-owned companies.

Another feature in the cap of Indian scandal list is COMMON-
WEALTH GAMES LOOT. Yes literally a loot!! It is established
that out of Rs 70,000 crores spent on the games ,only half the
said amount was spent on the sportspersons.
The central vigilance commission , involved in
probing the alleged corruption in various CWG-related projects,
has found discrepancies in tenders – like payment to non-
existence parties and bungling in purchasing of equipments
through tendering and misappropriation of funds .
S.KALMADI says a sum of Rs 25,200 crores has been
allocated to hire a time machine for CWG organisers
to have a look to how much toilet papers was bought
during the development of 1896 ATHENS
When asked by Kalmadi about where the
machine was , he pointed to raleigh cycle parked at
Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium .
*** There were mainly 2 big issues under CWG-
Real estate developer EMAAR-MGF may have
to forfeit Rs 183 crores it deposit with the
government of india as a bank guarantee for
CWG village that was built.
EMAAR is being penalised for
structural defects and inadequate amenties
including insufficient power and waste supply
for the apartments that housed the delegates
from 71 countries that participated in the
Another controversy dogging the CWG since the
start is the issue of tickets sales . While the general
public was unable to buy the tickets , with all
outlets reporting that all the venues have been
sold out, one witness nearly half the venues empty
for every event.
The fact was the greedy people who were
trying their level best to get maximum profit quick
in every way they can because CWG was a one
time opportunity for them.
On 25th April 2009, Suresh Kalmadi was arrested
by CBI under sections 120 B and 420 of the
Indian Penal Code in the Common Wealth
Games for awarding illegal contracts to a Swiss
firm for Timing-Scoring-Result system causing a
loss of Rs. 95 crore to the exchequer. Kalmadi’s
membership of the Indian National Congress

The health scheme scam:
The UPA government launched its flagship National
Rural Health Mission in 2005.
In its recent report, CAG says at least Rs 5,754 crore
of the NRHM funds are not accounted for in Uttar Pradesh from April 1, 2005 to
March 31, 2011. A total of Rs 8,657.35 crore were sent by the Centre to UP
during the period. UP was the highest recipient under the scheme as its health
indicators were poor.
Government officials, contractors, middlemen and politicians are alleged to have
colluded to divert the money sent by the Centre to provide affordable health
services to the poor.
CAG report says apart from the unaccounted funds, Rs 1364.89 crore were not
utilised by the end of March 2010.
The CAG report says selection and award of NRHM works to construction
agencies on nomination basis were in violation of the judgement of the Supreme
Court, Central Vigilance Commission guidelines and NRHM framework.
The CAG says primary health centres were used to store potatoes and eye care
centres were used as grain godowns. For delivering vaccines, the official car of
the Shahjahanpur district magistrate was shown as a delivery vehicle. Nearly 550
health centres that were sanctioned for over Rs 51 crore were never built.
The Mayawati government
has been on the back foot ever since the
scam involving siphoning off of huge funds provided
by the Centre to UP came to light. The case was later transferred
to the CBI after the courts intervened.
The NRHM scam has claimed four lives so far. The first death
was that of chief medical officer (CMO) V. Arya, who was
gunned down on October 27, 2010. Another CMO V.P. Singh
was killed on April 2, 2011.

5.46 crore to the exchequer.
