NREGA "social audit" of Oct 2009: Outcomes in press

Highlighted results:

The total amount of funds the audit seeks to recover are: Rs. 18,37,000 ($38,250 USD)!

12 FIRs (First Information Reports, to identify cases of suspected corruption to authorities) have been filed... mostly for having used construction machines rather than man-power; the NREGA requires that manpower be used, and 60% of funds support this, and only 40% go to purchasing material inputs...

And, this was the biggest social audit to date - was quite something to see 1,800 people hosted in the community club in Bhilwara!
