Role of CAG in Meeting Challenges of Good Governance

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India is almost one century and a half century old institution, which was formulated during the British rule to safeguard Government money. However, after independence, our leaders and policy makers redefined the role of the institution to meet the growing need of the independent nation and safeguard the interest of the general public as a whole in the democratic set up of India. The CAG has evolved its role as friends and representatives of the public and is constantly working for safeguarding the hard earned taxpayers’ money and ensure whether it is properly used; also, CAG has portrayed its independent nature by not getting influenced by the Government and Parliament/ Legislature. The domain of influence of CAG is wide and vast; it covers not only the Central Government, but also the State Governments, and it track the money from the Centre and the State capitals right down to its actual utilization at the Gram Panchayat and Block levels.
