AP A graffiti against the Commonwealth Games, on the wall of a subway in New Delhi. Shunglu Committee will begin its probe on alleged irregularities in CWG as the Centre finalised the terms of reference on Monday.

The high-level committee set up by the Centre to look into the conduct of the Commonwealth Games would have a much broader mandate, going beyond allegations of corruption and misappropriation of funds.

Even while focussing on “alleged misappropriation, irregularities, wasteful expenditure and wrongdoings in the conduct of the Games,” the terms of reference of the panel approved on Monday include examination of “weaknesses” in management and issues relating to coordination among various agencies involved in the development of infrastructure and conduct of the Games.

The panel, headed by the former Comptroller and Auditor-General of India, V.K. Shunglu, would look at planning and execution of development projects and contracts for service delivery, with reference to time, cost and quality and the role of advisers, consultants and officials of the Organising Committee.
