The study covers grants made by 33 Ministries of the Government of India and 26 State Governments since 2002. The study analyses the scale of the grants and procedures for grant making, and (absence of) mechanisms for monitoring, evaluation and accountability that have led to siphoning off hundreds of cores of tax payers’ money.
