Rajya Sabha question 1900 asked by DR. JANARDHAN WAGHMARE "The TRUTH" - Part III

DR. JANARDHAN WAGHMARE, Hon'ble Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabhva asked the question 
1900 (a) details of observations/objections of CAG regarding loss occurred to National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), Punjab; year-wise during past three years and action taken thereon;
 in Rajya Sabha held on Friday, December 9, 2011/Agrahayana 18, 1933 (Saka)

Despite of clear direction from BoG, NIPER administration decided not to follow a time table for preparation and submission of Annual Accounts, so that finds can be diverted at will. CAG report retrieved by RTI is clearly depicted the misappropriation. 
Loss/ misappropriation of 607.26 lakh Exchequer money during the year 2009-10 alone. Three years sum will be more
Another RTI is filed in Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers on 31/10/11 but no response received till date indicating no action taken.
