Appointed by the President. A person with long administrative experience & knowledge of accounts is appointed. Holds office for 6 yrs or till 65 yrs of age.

The President can remove him only on the recommendation of the 2 houses of Parliament (as in case of judge of Supreme Court). He is the guardian of the public purse.

His duties are to audit the accounts of the Union and the States and to ensure that nothing is spent out of the Consolidated Fund of India or of the States without the sanction of the Parliament or the respective State Legislatures.

He submits an audit report of the Union to the President who shall lay it before the Parliament and the audit reports of the States to the respective Governors who shall lay it before the respective State Legislatures.

In short the CAG acts as the custodian & trustee of public money.MBA Question Bank CD

  • Comptroller & Auditor General of India is recruited by the President by way of warrant under his signature and seal and he can be removed in the same manner as a judge of the Supreme Court (Article 148 of the Constitution of India). There are different Wings under CAG which audits the different departments of all the Governments in India. P&T Audit Department is responsible for audit of P&T Department, BSNL etc.. Commercial Audit Department (CAD) is responsible for audit of commercial organisations like PSUs, Governemnt companies, Boards, corporations etc. Similarly, Defence Audit Department is responsible for the audit of Defence Departments. Railway Audit is responsible for audit of Indian Railway Department. Local Body Audit is responsible for the audit of local bodies like municipalities, Panchayats etc. All other departments of Government of India and other State Governments and Union Territory Administrations are audited by the Civil Audit Department namely Indian Audit & Accounts Department (IA&AD). Under IA&AD, one wing is responsbile for compiling of Accounts and their reconciliations and this wing is called A&E i.e. Accounts & Entitlements. There are three stages of recruitment under CAG. One is in Group A cadre called Indian Audit & Accounts Services for which officers join in the cadre of Assistant Accountant General through Civil Services examinations held by UPSC every year. Another stage is in Group 'B' cadre in the cadre of Assistant Audit Officer (Civil Audit) for recruitment in Audit Cadre of all Departments except the Commercial Departments/bodies for which Staff Selection Commission conducts examination. For Commercial Audit Department (CAD), separate examination for Assistant Audit Officers (Commercial) is conducted by Staff Selection Commission. Another stage of recruiement in CAG is in Auditor Cadre (Group 'C' post)for which Staff Selection Commission conduts examination under Combined Graduate Level Examination. Eligibility criteria for appearing in UPSC and in SSC for AAO (Civil Audit) and in Auditor Cadre is graduate in any discipline. But for Commercial Audit Department i.e. CAD, minimum education qualification is to pass either B.Com or CA (Intermediate) examination.
