Audit Week

Audit Week


Recently Lt Governor Manoj Sinha appreciated the efforts of the audit community towards transparent and accountable governance.

He was addressing the closing ceremony of ‘Audit Week’ at Convention Centre Jammu.

He said the week-long audit day celebrations provide us with an opportunity to reflect on the critical role the audit community plays in contributing to good governance and shaping the governance landscape of our Nation.

“Public audit ensures that every rupee is well spent for the purpose of bringing about a change in the lives of the people standing in the last queue of development,” the Lt Governor said.

One of the earliest institutions established to bring transparency, accountability and honesty in public life is the Institution of Comptroller and Auditor General of India. Our forefathers while drafting the Constitution had a clear opinion that the Auditor General would be the most important officer in the democratic processes, he said.

Baba Saheb Ambedkar had said that the position of the Auditor General is the most important in the Indian Constitution and he will be the only person who will see to it that there is no expenditure in excess of what the Parliament has voted for or what is provided for in the Appropriation Bill of the Parliament, the Lt Governor observed.

He impressed on the Government departments to take quick action on the shortcomings.
