The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has found 15 cases of fraudulent withdrawal of above Rs 54 crore in the North Cachar Autonomous Hill district council of Assam during the 2007 and 2009 fiscal year.
The CAG in its report which was tabled in the state assembly said the council drew the amount on various occasions without providing any details of its utilisation.
The cash book and details of utilisation was not available on record, the report said.
The health and family welfare department of the council also failed to provide utilisation certificates of huge amounts spent under various health care schemes undertaken by the government during the period.
Among the other departments in which fraudulent withdrawals were detected is the Public Health Engineering under the council.
