New Delhi, Jul 20: The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) said Delhi Metro has acquired excess land for developing the Phase-1 of the DMRC project.

"In nine locations, it was observed that total land acquired was 6.42 lakh square metre, which was in excess of the project requirement by 14 to 354 per cent," the CAG said in its report on the Phase-I of the DMRC.

It also said, "The DMRC has acquired 32.28 lakh square metre of land for the Phase-I of the project, under which three lines were constructed, but has not maintained location wise data of land used for the project and property development."

"This is evident from the fact that in Seelampur where turnover and net worth criteria were fixed at Rs 60 crore and Rs 25 crore respectively, only one qualified bid was received and the amount realised was just 3 pc over the reserve price," it added.
