This Report contains major findings arising out of Performance Audit of “Grant, Lease, Eviction of Encroachment, Regularisation of Unauthorised Occupation of Government Lands”. The Report is structured in nine Chapters. Chapter-I provides general introduction on disposal and administration of Government Land. Chapter-II deals with the Audit Framework and the remaining Chapters deal with the Audit Observations.
The Report deals with observations on availability of land, procedures for verification of eligibility of beneficiaries, grant of prohibited lands, grant of incorrect/excess concessions, absence of system to monitor the usage of land, deficiencies in accounting and eviction of encroachments and irregularities in regularisation of unauthorised occupation. These observations point to lapses of internal controls and procedures which need to be strengthened to ensure fair and transparent disposal of Government land.
