Audit Monitoring System
The Audit of the Receipts and Expenditure of the State Government is conducted by the Accountant General (AG), Karnataka on behalf of the Comptroller & Auditor General (CAG) of India. The aim and purpose of this Audit is to bring to the notice of Legislature, items of expenditure which are beyond the scope of the authorization made by the Legislature, Cases of irregular expenditure, loss of public money caused by default, lack of supervision or other causes, excess or short collection of taxes, erroneous assessments of taxes etc...
Administrative Departments have to reply within the time frame to objections raised by the Audit in the Inspection Reports pertaining to nearly 23,000 government offices in the State. Those replies which have not been found satisfactory by the AG will go as Draft Paras. Departmental Notes have to be submitted by the Administrative Departments for the Draft Paras which will be validated by AG. Those Draft Paras for which Departmental Notes submitted were not found satisfactory by the AG will figure in the CAG Report. The CAG report will be placed on the floor of the House (Legislature) and Action Taken Notes have to be given for each Audit Para by the Administrative Departments. This will be reviewed by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). The committee will also review the Excess Appropriations done by the Administrative Departments. The entire process will be monitored by the Controller (Accounts Management).
