The Comptroller and Auditor General Of India (CAG) in its recent report has made some shocking revelations about the ration that the Indian Army is providing to its jawans.
According to the CAG, the Indian Army is not providing adequate fresh fruits and vegetables to its jawans.
The report also points out very low level of satisfaction by the jawan regarding the quantity, quality and taste of ration.
Further, the report also slammed Border Roads Organisation (BRO) for selecting sites for constructing bridges without conducting soil test, which led to construction work being stopped in the areas where the soil was found unsuitable. This led to the wastage of Rs. 2.5 crores of government money.
The report didn’t even spare Indian Air Force, which it blamed for buying ten C-17 globe-master planes at the cost of Rs. 19,000 and not using them properly.
The CAG also criticised IAF for using Dornier planes below their utilisation capability and procuring 14 additional Dornier planes at the cost of Rs. 900 crore.
