CAG flags variations in AT&C losses shown by Power Ministry

Government auditor CAG has flagged variations in figures for these losses in various documents presented by Power Ministry before Parliament. In its report tabled in Parliament today, CAG also observed there were instances of diversion of R-APDRP funds and overlapping of schemes were noticed in some states. R-APDRP was launched in December 2008 as a continuation of the Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme (APDRP). "Variations were noticed in the AT&C losses presented in various documents by the Minter of Power to Parliament. The methodology used for calculating the AT&C losses, though laid down, was not followed uniformly leading to varying estimates of the AT&C losses," CAG said.
