This Audit Report includes five chapters comprising live performance audit reviews and 14 transaction audit paragraphs relating to the State Government and its Companies and Corporations.

The audit has been conducted in accordance with the Auditing Standards prescribed for the Indian Audit and Accounts Department. Audit samples have been drawn, based on statistical sampling methods as well as on judgment basis. The specific audit methodology adopted for audit of programmes and schemes has been mentioned in the reviews. The audit conclusions have been drawn and the recommendations made taking into consideration the views of the Government, wherever received.

A summary of the audit findings is given below.

Though 3,342 ration card holders declared their income to be more than the limit fixed by the department, they were continued to be treated as Below Poverty Line. Shortfall in identification of beneficiaries under the Antyoday Anna Yojana deprived 1,186 families from the benefit of the scheme during 2005-10. Foodgrains valuing Rs. 6.78 crore were distributed to ineligible Above Poverty Line card holders. The department failed to ensure the availability of essential commodities at all Fair Price Shops within the first week of the month.  

The State achieved targets in respect of Infant Mortality Rate. Maternal Mortality Rate and Total Fertility Rate. The State Health Society did not prepare annual village, block and district level Action Plans nor the Perspective Plans for the Mission period.

Out of Rs. 25.26 crore received by the State Health Society, Rs. 10.30 crore was unutilised till March 2010. There was a shortage of specialists in Community Health Centres as per NRHM norms and the supporting staff in Primary Health Centres were in excess by 240 per cent. The absence of a State Health Monitoring Committee and unsatisfactory functioning of Mother NGOs resulted in poor monitoring and evaluation.
