The power distribution companies have not been cooperating with the Comptroller and AuditorGeneral in auditing of their accounts as directed by the Delhi Government.
According to senior CAG official, audit of these companies had not started yet as they have refused to show books of accounts when their officials reached their offices to start work.
“The audit has not yet started. We went to the private discoms’ offices on Monday, but they refused to show us their accounts and books. The companies have refused to cooperate with us,” said the official.
The CAG had informed the Delhi Government about the “non-cooperation” by the discoms, the official said.
The CAG may ask the Delhi Government to direct the discoms to share their accounts with it.
“The audit of the discoms is not our initiative, but it was requested by the Delhi Government. The Government has to make the accounts available to us. We have brought the Government in the loop about the refusal of these companies to cooperate with us,” the officials added.
Meanwhile, a Power Department official of the State government said it will continue to push for auditing of the discoms by CAG.
