Loss of interest of RS 4.12 crore due to retention of RKVY funds in current account was noticed. Interest of RS 4.42 crore earned on RKVY funds was not accounted for towards RKVY.

Instances of blockade of funds (RS 7 crore); irregular award of work/undue favour to NGOs (RS 15.16 crore); excess/irregular payment of subsidy (RS 2.02 crore); and unfruitful/wasteful expenditure (RS 5.20 crore) were noticed.
