The Central Vigilance Commission is examining all construction work related to Commonwealth Games following complaints of large scale corruption.
The anti corruption watchdog has also decided to formulate vigilance guidelines to check Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects.
“Apart from expeditiously attending to complaints relating to the Games, the commission, through its Chief Technical Examiner’s Wing, is keeping a close watch on all the contracts and works undertaken for the Commonwealth Games,” Chief Vigilance Commissioner Pratyush Sinha told PTI.
The decision comes following complaints alleging discrepancies in the work being undertaken by civic agencies like Municipal Corporation of Delhi, NDMC, Delhi Development Authority and Central Public Works Department, among others.
“Since PPP scheme is at a nascent stage and involves numerous complexities, the commission has constituted a committee to formulate a strategy for vigilance response. Vigilance guidelines for PPP projects would be finalised soon,” said Sinha.
