Recasting Public Administration in India

This chapter reflects on parliamentary accountability of new governance institutions. Parliament has a constitutional agent in the office of the comptroller and auditor general (CAG) to report on the performance of government expenditure. On the one hand, it is contended that since institutions with PPPs include private investment, the CAG does not have a role in auditing them. On the other hand, the view is that these institutions are public authorities and come under the purview of the CAG. The debate is far from settled and public audit is still denied to these institutions. In this chapter, some instances where the CAG has undertaken audit on its own are presented.

Keywords:   parliamentary accountability, new governance institutions, comptroller and auditor general, private investment, public audit
