In November 2009, the CAG asked the government to amend the Audit Act of 1971 in order to introduce into the field of CAG all public-private partnerships (PPPs), institutions and Panchayti Raj companies that receive public funds. The amendment also proposes to extend the CAG`s access to information powers under the Audit Act. In the past, nearly 30% of the documents requested by GAC officials have been refused.  The PPP model has become a preferred mode for carrying out large infrastructure projects worth millions of rupees, and these projects may or may not fall within the CAG`s audit domain, depending on the sources of funding and the nature of revenue-sharing agreements between the government and private bodies. . . .
