After obtaining all audit report objections on C&AG report 2008-09, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly, empowered by the house to examine various aspect of expenditure, January 27 and 28 held “evidence meeting” with 12 government departments containing 60 paras.
However, two departments consisting of 28 paras were deferred in want of concrete information and their AHoD/HoD, the PAC chairman Dr.N Nicky Kire said in a press release.
As the government departments were accountable to the PAC, the panel chairman said its function was to examine the audit objections/paras contained in the report of the C&AG yearly, as well as expenditure of the government within the demand for grants. The present committee has examined four C & AG reports and laid it in the house, he said.
According to Dr. Nicky Kire, the committee, after thorough examination along with evidence tendered by departmental representatives, would prepare the main report with a view to implement the committee’s observations and recommendations within three months.
The PAC chairman asserted that if the government departments did not comply/oblige with committee’s observations and recommendations, it was committee’s prerogative to report to concern ministry on the unfruitful expenditure/diversion of the funds or any CSS funds misappropriated.
“It also calls the AHoD/HoD for not implementing/ignoring committee’s observations and recommendations to the government as they are liable to explain before the committee,” he said.
The PAC also directed the state chief secretary for “adverse” remarks in their ACRs for such lapses.
The committee which acts on behalf of the house has its prerogative to ask the necessary documents from government departments and also disallow tendering evidence if come unprepared and call back for the next day as part of disciplinary measures, the PAC said.
