UGC in CVC net for violation of norms

What looks like a bad welcome to the new HRD minister, Central Vigilance Commission has indicted UGC for flouting all norms and not being transparent in the ambitious Rs 224 crore e-governance project. CVC had carried out an inquiry after adverse media reports and a complaint alleging serious irregularities in the handling of the big value tender for the design and implementation of an e-governance project in UGC. The project entails greater connectivity to universities and colleges. While saying that the "process needs to be reviewed and made more professional and transparent in order to avoid complications later", CVC said, "The total value of the project may not have been correctly estimated and may be on the higher side." CVC suggested the project "can be managed better by starting on a smaller scale and expanding thereafter".
