While presenting the Ministry’s 2014 Auditor General Report, Principal Accountant Sen Jeet says all the balances which was unsubstantiated have been reconciled and approved for write off in consultation with the Assessment Management Unit of the Ministry of Economy.
When questioned by Opposition member Aseri Radrodro on why there was a write off when the reconciliation had been done, Jeet says there was no record with them.
Jeet says the write off exercise was undertaken by the Ministry of Economy because figures were not balancing and the Ministry did not have any source documents.
He says they only had source documents till 2006.
