Overview

This Report contains significant results of the Performance Audit on the Indo-Nepal Border Roads Project covering the period from 2010-11 to 2018-19 updated upto March 2021. Government of India in November 2010 took up the construction of 1377 km of roads along the Indo-Nepal Border in Bihar (564 km), Uttar Pradesh (640 km) and Uttarakhand (173 km) at a cost of ₹ 3853 crore.  MHA released funds aggregating ₹1709.17 crore to these States as of 31 March 2021. The timelines for completion of the project was March 2016, but was subsequently extended to December 2022. The Performance Audit brings out inadequacies in planning and financial management coupled with poor contract management and execution of works as well as lack of synchronisation and coordination of activities leading to undue delays as well as additional costs that resulted in non-achievement of the objectives of the project.
