BHOPAL: The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has described as ‘unconstitutional’, the state government’s decision to handover the work of conducting tests for recruitment to jobs in the state government and in the government-controlled public sector undertakings to Vyapam.
The CAG, in its report for the year ending March 31, 2016, said that Vyapam had not been constituted as per the procedure laid by the Constitution and was not an independent body. Also, the government did not make any rules to ensure that the institution can work independently. “Against this backdrop, it was wrong to handover recruitments to Vyapam”, it said. Addressing a press conference after tabling of the report in the Vidhan Sabha here on Friday, Auditors General Saurabh Mallick and Deepak Kumar, listed the massive irregularities committed in Vyapam.
Govt did not want audit of Vyapam
The report says that the government was not interested in getting the accounts of Vyapam audited. It had claimed that the AG was “very busy” whereas in reality no request had been made to audit Vyapam accounts.
