SHILLONG, Jan 07: The state government will table the ‘Social Auditing Bill’ in the upcoming Assembly Session.
Informing this to reporters on Tuesday Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma said that the government wants to complete the process of Social Auditing Bill (SAB) and that it will be introduced in upcoming Assembly Session.

However, he said that the bill would ensure that it would not come into conflict with any existing law.
“The bill would provide room for a concurrent scrutiny of works rather than the usual post-mortem scrutiny,” the chief minister said.
Dr Sangma said the SAB is being design in a manner so that projects and programmes which are being implemented across the state by all line departments will come into scrutiny and vigilance on a concurrent-basis rather than on a post-mortem basis, which is the system that is being followed now.
He informed that when social auditing system is passed and implemented it will have its own mechanism to deter any tendency to embark upon any irregularity at the time of implementation of programmes. He was of the opinion that the SAB will go a long way in transforming the government approach to governance and delivery system.
However, he said that the bill would ensure that it would not come into conflict with any existing law.
“The bill would provide room for a concurrent scrutiny of works rather than the usual post-mortem scrutiny,” the chief minister ensured.
