Date: 05 February 2020 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • A report by Comptroller and Auditor-General (CAG) has pulled up the Army for deficiencies in the provision of special clothing, rations and housing for troops in high-altitude areas, including Siachen.
  • There were delays of up to four years in the procurement of high-altitude clothing and equipment, leading to an acute shortage of essential clothing and equipment.
  • The CAG said Indian National Defence University (INDU), proposed by the Kargil Review Committee in 1999, was yet to fructify, even as the project cost had been revised from ?395 crore to ?4,007.22 crore.
