New Delhi: The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has slammed the Sports Authority of India for “idling of infrastructure” arising out of lack of proper planning and “unfruitful expenditure” worth more than Rs 15 crore in total in two separate projects in the country.

“SAI approved (July-August 2003) the preliminary estimate for Rs 15.66 crore…although the schedule date of completion was December 2004, NBCC started work in December 2003 and completed in

May 2008.

After spending Rs 14.15 crore, SAI took over the infrastructure in June 2010,” the CAG report, which was tabled in the Parliament, said.

“Audit scrutiny revealed (March 2014) that the sub-centre could not be made operational for want of security clearance from the state government…and the infrastructure remained unutilised as of December 2014,” it said.
