Delhi government moves SC over discoms’ audit

New Delhi, Jan 15 (IANS) The Delhi government on Friday moved the Supreme Court to challenge the Delhi High Court verdict that disallowed CAG audit of power distribution companies in the national capital, an official said.

The matter is likely to be heard by the apex court on January 18, said the official.

In October last year, the high court quashed the Delhi government decision to get the accounts of the capital’s three private power distribution companies scrutinised by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India.

The high court order upheld the plea of Tata Power Delhi Distribution, BSES Rajdhani Power and BSES Yamuna Power against the Delhi government’s order dated January 7, 2014, for CAG scrutiny of their accounts.

They were private companies and not government entities and as such did not come within the CAG purview, the three companies maintained.
