Mostly likely, the central government will put forward 16 audit reports by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) next week. However, all the eyes will be on the audit report on the 4G spectrum auction in the communications and IT sector.

The allocation of airwaves in an unclear manner was questioned by the official auditor of India. During the audit, CAG put a question mark on the way pan India 4G broadband licences were given to Relaince Jio Infocomm. It was asserted by the auditors that the process was managed to benefit a small company. And, within hours of completion of the auction, that small company was taken over by a big industrial house. The auditor has also put a circle on the bank guarantee submitted by the company, which had bid for licences.

CAG also alleged that the Department of Telecommunications virtually gave out broadband market control to a major industrial house.

On the other hand, an audit report on the projects given by the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency Ltd. (IREDA) is also of crucial importance.

CAG also analyzed government’s decisions taken during 2008-09 to 2012-13 while scrutinizing the selected projects. These include the UPA government’s Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana scheme. This project was created to offer more flexibility to the states through elemental level planning. Rs 32,000 crore were allocated by the government during 2007-08 and 20012-13 for the scheme’s implementation in all states and union territories.

CAG has also submitted reports on implementation of nutrient-based subsidy policy for decontrolled phosphate and potassic fertilizers, railway finances, dual freight policy for transportation of iron ore and the supply and infrastructural development for natural gas.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
