The report said the service tax of Rs 5.14 crore paid in excess had neither been reconciled nor refund thereof received.
“The company had not submitted revised cost offers, to the extent of Rs 22.66 crore, to reflect enhanced rate of service tax and made payment of service tax at the enhanced rate without actual recovery of Rs 3.45 crore from the project authorities,” the report said.
It said the company was dependent on the state departments and agencies for works on nomination basis and had failed to secure any work on competitive tender basis.
“The quantum of new works obtained declined during 2012-16 from Rs 349.48 crore to Rs 236.03 crore, but increased during 2016-17 to Rs 696.64 crore. Execution of works in excess of the funds released by the project authorities led to accumulation of outstanding balance of Rs 188 crore as of March 2017 and loss of interest of Rs 26.56 crore,” it said.
The delay in completion of works led to increase in cost to the extent of Rs 360.87 crore which was mainly due to poor monitoring by company and slow progress.
It said the company had not framed any recruitment and promotion policy and staff had been deployed at different units in an ad hoc manner. The report said JKPCC did not devise any mechanism for ensuring continuous monitoring and internal control.
“Weak quality control, inadequacy of internal audit and variations amongst performance reports were observed,” the report said.
