The Comptroller and Auditor General of India has found that the Haryana government has not submited utilisation certificates for a whopping Rs 4,705.32 crore disbursed to various departments over the past several years.
Raising a question over proper utilisation of money, the CAG said that non-submission of UCs not only indicated a lack of control of the administrative department but also showed tendency on part of the state government to disburse fresh grants without ascertaining proper utilisation of earlier grants.
A Utilisation Certificate (UC) is issued by respective departments to Accountant General to authenticate utilisation of money for which it was disbursed.
CAG found that out of UCs due for submission in respect of grants aggregating Rs 9,984.50 crore, UCs for an amount of Rs 4,705.32 crore were in arrears.
The report said that out of 3,743 outstanding UCs, 1,289 UCs were more than three years old.
UCs from urban development , rural development, education, sports and social justice and empowerment departments constituted 92% of total outstanding UCs involving 85% of the grants released.
CAG also found in audit report that several autonomous bodies set up by the state government in the field of urban development , labour welfare and agriculture have been delaying submission of their accounts for audit.
The frequency of delay in submitting accounts range from one year to 14 years by autonomous bodies, including HUDA, Haryana Labour Welfare Board, Haryana Khadi and Village Industries Board, and Chief Judicial Magistrate-cum-secretary District Legal Services Authority.
