The Performance Audit was conducted during February to July 2013 covering the period 2008-13. Entry and exit conferences were held with the Principal Secretary, Department of Housing. The responses of various officers of the KHB to the audit observations have been taken into consideration and incorporated in this report. While the main findings are summarised in the following paragraphs, the details are available in the specific chapters.
KHB selected the locations and the extent of land arbitrarily without conducting any demand survey or ascertaining availability of land. This resulted in non-execution of projects in approved places or projects being shifted to subsequently identified locations.

In three test-checked projects, KHB acquired land for housing projects without verifying the land use patterns prescribed in the Master Plan of respective Planning Authorities.
