The audit conclusions have been drawn and recommendations made, taking into consideration, the views of the Government.

Audit comments on the performance of some Government departments and programmes as well as the working of the Science and Technology department are given below:
Performance Audit of Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), a 100 per cent Centrally sponsored scheme, was launched in December 2000. The primary objective of PMGSY was to provide connectivity, by way of all-weather roads (with necessary culverts and cross-drainage structures operable throughout the year) to eligible unconnected habitations in rural areas. The department failed to provide connectivity to the targeted habitations. Only nine per cent habitations were connected with all-weather roads during the period 2005-10. It was noticed that the contractors had submitted fake/cross/duplicate copies of invoices for procurement of bitumen. Government money was defalcated without actual procurement of bitumen as well as actual execution of work by making false entries in the measurement books. Contractors were favoured in realisation of liquidated damages, grant of mobilisation advances and equipment advances. The quality of roads was compromised due to non-rectification of defects reported by the National Quality Monitor/State Quality Monitor as well as doubtful procurement of bitumen.
