The target was however not met, as the 1,500 MW Bawana gas-based power project was delayed by eight months, despite an expenditure of `2,330 crores." it said.
"After the Pragati Power Limited (under government of Delhi) put up a proposal for the project in year 2003, the Delhi Cabinet approved the setting up of the 1,000 MW power plant at Bawana under government execution only in November 2006," it said.
The CAG also slammed the contractor Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), which was awarded the work in April 2008, for not mobilising adequate resources at the site.
The CAG report further mentions that the total capacity of 220 KVA electrical sub-station was targeted to be increased by the Delhi government.
Delhi Transco and Delhi Government Power Supply Unit took up projects of setting up five 220 KVA electrical sub-stations and seven corresponding cabling projects.
However, only two out of five sub-stations and two out of seven cabling projects were completed before the Games.
