CAG TO AUDIT NOIDA, GR NOIDA, YAMUNA EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITIES

UP government has ordered Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) audit of three industrial development authorities which are facing allegations of irregularities and corruption.
In the latest decision, the state government ordered CAG auditing for Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway industrial development authorities, UP Industrial Development Department Principal Secretary Alok Sinha said.
The Noida Authority had earlier opposed CAG auditing, saying it is an autonomous body. Apart from carrying out checks on procedures, utilisation of funds and progress of projects, the CAG audit may also scrutinise the terms of contracts, agencies and contractors to whom the projects have been awarded, they said.
Allegations have been levelled that the three authorities had made large-scale land allotments to builders and other allottees at throwaway prices in the past 10 years. The state government recently had given a nod to the audit of the Ghaziabad Development Authority by the CAG.
Industrial Development Minister Satish Mahana said, that to highlight corruption in the previous government in UP it is necessary that the CAG should audit all the development authorities.

Indian government initiated a program in 1994 to promote manufacturing in districts designated “backwards”. The way the backwards districts were identified enables us to employ a regression discontinuity design to evaluate the impacts of the program. We find that the program’s 5-year tax exemption to manufacturers led to a significant increase in firm entry and employment in relatively better-off backward districts, particularly in light manufacturing industries. However, the program also resulted in negative spillover effects on districts which were neighbouring these backward districts and relatively weaker in economic activity. The findings emphasise that the spatial effects of place-based policies deserve greater attention from policy makers.
