    Discrepancies in Defence land record: CAG

    New Delhi: In the wake of Adarsh housing society and Sukhna land scams the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has put the Defence Ministry's land record management systems under the scanner.

    The CAG says that there have been large scale discrepancies in land records, which could result in further encroachments and land grabs on Defence Land.

    The audit reiterated that while there is no centralized record of defence land. Atleast 14,539 acres of land was under encroachment in 2009.

    More harsh words from the auditor saying that there is a complete lack of accountability. The Defence Ministry has already withdrawn the power of issuing NOCs from officers in the wake of the two scams.
