Delhi HC says CAG can’t audit accounts of discoms

New Delhi, Oct. 30 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday delivered a blow to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government, saying the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has no power to audit the accounts of power companies.

The high court allowed pleas from three private discoms which had challenged the AAP Government’s decision to get their accounts audited by the CAG.

The CAG had indicted three discoms in the national capital for inflating dues from consumers to the tune of a whopping Rs 8,000 crores, besides committing other irregularities, including suppressing knowledge of revenue earnings in August this year.

The AAP government had first sought to hand over audit of discoms to the CAG during its 49-day stint in the Delhi government in 2014. (ANI)
