This Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) relates to matters arising from performance audit of selected programmes and activities and compliance audit of economic sector departments and autonomous bodies.
Compliance audit refers to examination of the transactions relating to expenditure of the audited entities. This is to ascertain whether the provisions of the Constitution of India, applicable laws, rules and regulations, various orders and instructions issued by the competent authorities are being complied with. Performance audit examines whether the objectives of the programme or activity are achieved economically, efficiently and effectively.
The primary purpose of the Report is to bring to the notice, important results of audit to the State Legislature. Auditing Standards require that the materiality level for reporting should be commensurate with the nature, volume and magnitude of transactions. The findings of audit are expected to enable the Executive to take corrective measures. This would enable them to frame policies and directives to improve financial management of the organisations for better governance.
This chapter, in addition to explaining the planning and extent of audit, provides a synopsis of the significant deficiencies noticed in Performance and Compliance Audit. Chapter II of this Report contains findings arising out of performance audit of Irrigation potential created in Narmada Canal Project. Chapter III contains observations arising out of compliance audit of the Government Departments.
