A total of 22 complaints related to alleged irregularities in various Commonwealth Games related projects have been received by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), the Rajya Sabha was informed on Thursday.

Replying to a question in the upper house, Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Prithviraj Chavan said that eight complaints regarding alleged irregularities were received by the CBI and 14 such complaints were received in the CVC.

Chavan said the CVC, as part of its routine work, has undertaken intensive examination of works related to the Games.

"The commission in its inquiry found that works were awarded at higher rates and the quality was also not up to the mark. Further, ineligible agencies were also awarded the works," said Chavan.
