MULTIPLE teams from the audit department could not find anomalies within the salary branch of the Chandigarh Police during its three annual audits between 2016 and 2019, reveals the reply to a query filed under the RTI Act.
In the reply of DGA, Sector 17, it was revealed that the audit teams had conducted the audits over a period of several months, later on, irregularities in the disbursement of salaries, allowances, LTC, TA were noticed during the special audit which started on 1st 2020 at the request of Chandigarh Police itself. But the audit teams failed to detect any irregularities between 2016 and 2019. The RTI query was filed by VB Khanna, a resident of Sector 19.
The months of annual audits were July, August and September in 2016-17 and 2017-18, respectively. A general audit was conducted in January, February and March in the years 2018-19.
According to the response, numerous teams from the DGA Sector 17 office have pointed out irregularities in procurement of computer equipment, non-disposal of empty tear gas, excess consumption of fuel used in police vehicles, non-recovery of invoices from Kings XI, Punjab, where the machines were not used, tools bought for lakhs of rupees etc.
When contacted, the Commissioner (CAG), Sanjeev Goyal, said, “In fact, the irregularities in the pay branch were found during a special audit which was initiated at the request of the Chandigarh Police itself. Our special audit confirmed the irregularities, which are still present. I believe that it is difficult to detect serious irregularities in periodic audits where we select specific months, ie. one or two to look at the details. So far, Chandigarh Police has still failed to trace and ascertain the data of Rs 83.59 crore vouchers, invoices, LTC etc.
