New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) probe into 16 Commonwealth Games projects being undertaken by various government agencies is in different stages, a Right To Information (RTI) query has revealed Tuesday.
RTI applicant Subhash Chandra Agrawal filed a query under the act on the status of the 16 Commonwealth Games projects which were slapped with corruption charges and irregularities.
In a reply to the RTI query filed Aug 3, the CVC said: “The Chief Technical Examination Officer (CTEO) has conducted intensive examination in a routine manner on the 16 project works related to CWG, 2010. As the matters are under investigation, further information is denied.”
Of the 16 Games projects where complaints of alleged irregularities have been made, 7 cases are under examination. Of these, 4 cases are against the Public Works Department (PWD), 2 against the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), and one against RITES.
Besides, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has not replied to the commission on three cases — the covering of Sunhari Nallah from Lala Lajpat Rai Marg to Dayal Singh College along Lodhi Road, construction of Road Under Bridge (RUB) at Prem Nagar and Sewa Nagar railway crossing and construction of the Ring Road bye-pass from Salim Garh Fort to Velodrome road.
The PWD has not replied to query on upgradation works of streetlighting on Delhi PWD roads in some area. An investigation report on upgradation of the Dr.S.P.M. swimming pool from the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) is yet to be given to CVC.
On charges against the MCD on upgradation of streetlighting on roads in Delhi, CVC said the case is been referred to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the investigation report is awaited.
Of the 16 cases, in a single case a contract for construction of the Games village near Akshardham temple was terminated by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA).
