BJP blames discoms for 5,000 crore of city govt funds

Sharing is Caring

The three private power distribution companies (discoms) in the capital enjoyed funding of more than Rs 5,000 crore from the Delhi government since their inception on July 1, 2002, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has said while justifying its stand on auditing their accounts.
“Considering that the discoms enjoyed funding of more than Rs 5,000 crore from the state by way of equity, debt, transferred assets and also receivables, there is a nexus with the consolidated fund of the state, and hence the CAG has a statutory duty to scrutinize the books of accounts of discoms,” the CAG said in its petition before the Supreme Court challenging the Delhi High Court order quashing the federal audit of discoms.
