Audits and Accounts is not an investigating agnecy but to just review, analyze and report the observations.

It is not his function or duty to probe corruption. He only brings in his reports all financial irregularities or non observance of rules and regulations of Government, the instances of infructous expenditures the instances of avoidable expenditure and the non realization or short realization of government revenues etc It is for government to probe whether there is any possibility of corruption involved in these irregularities and take appropriate action against the corrupt officials,if the circumstances warranted it.
