Armed with sweeping powers, the committee headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General V.K. Shunglu will soon begin its probe into alleged financial irregularities in different Commonwealth Games projects.

Official sources said a blueprint will be finalised before this week by the Committee for its probe.

It is likely that one or two new members may be inducted into the committee which is expected to submit its report within three months.

“The Terms of Reference (ToR) are wide and comprehensive. We will go in to every aspect of the complaints (related to the scam),” Mr. Shunglu told PTI.

“The committee will arrive at a logical conclusion on the probe and submit its report within the stipulated time of three months,” he said.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had on October 15 appointed the high-level committee to be headed by Mr. Shunglu.

The Prime Minister’s Office has on Monday announced a 10-point ToR for the Shunglu panel to investigate the weaknesses in management, alleged misappropriation, irregularities and wrongdoing in the conduct of the Games held here between October 3-14.

The committee has powers to summon officials, confiscate papers and inspect Games venues and Organising Committee offices.

According to the PMO, the Committee will have as its second member Shantanu Consul, Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training, after his retirement on October 31.
