Coal, telecom scams former CAG Vinod Rai set to join Indian Railways


Almost two years after he retired as the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), Vinod Rai is set to join the Railways Ministry as an “honorary advisor”.

During his term as CAG, Rai claimed to have “unearthed” largescale irregularities and “loss” of public money in spectrum auctions and coal block allocations, causing discomfort to the then UPA government and giving plenty of ammunition to the BJP, then in the opposition.

This is Rai’s first formal assignment after retirement. He has been asked to advise the Railways on how to usher transparency in all processes including procurement, finances, decision-making and operations. More info
