J&K Police Deptt spent Rs 100 cr from PM’s package without tendering, reveals audit report

Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 14: The audit report has pointed out that Jammu and Kashmir Police spent Rs 100 crore out of Prime Minister’s Development Package (PMDP) without tendering.
The audit report has pointed out that the bullet proof vehicles worth Rs 100 crore were procured without any tendering process.
The Police Department in its reply has said that the vehicles have been procured directly from the manufacturers at a minimum price. But the auditors have pointed out that the Police Department selected only two suppliers and didn’t explore the “reasonability of rates.” They also pointed out that Rs 9 crore extra were spent in procuring these vehicles.
The Police Department in its reply has stated that it was necessary to purchase these vehicles immediately for counter insurgency operations and for maintaining law and order.
The audit has recommended that the probe should be ordered to ascertain whether the reasons cited by the J&K Police are genuine or some kind of misappropriation has taken place.
The Ministry of Home Affairs had approved Rs 500 crore for procuring the equipment in the Financial Year 2016-17 and had set deadline as March 2020 for utilizing these funds, but till date only Rs 261 crore have been spent and rest of the money has been left unutilized.
The money was meant to be spent on putting in place two central integrated command systems in Jammu and Srinagar, setting up integrated district command systems, installing CCTVs from Lakhanpur to Srinagar on the National Highway and police stations across J&K and procuring other necessary equipment.
But not much headway has been made in equipping the police force as 50% money is still unspent.
Audit has pointed out many flaws but neither the Anti Corruption Bureau nor the government has taken a note of it and no one has been held accountable till date.
