Not only discoms, all PPP projects should be audited

This article covers the push for every P3 project in India to undergo an audit by the government auditor. It comes from a former CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) who feels that due to the various scams that have been reported there needs to be government review and presence. The fact that companies are fiercely fighting this type of monitoring also makes him suspicious since there should be nothing for them to hide. Article specifically focuses on the privatized power distribution companies, which took over these services in 2002 and mentions that P3 projects in the highway and roads sector should be audited as well.
