New CAG sworn in

Shashi Kant Sharma was today sworn in as CAG by President Pranab Mukherjee in the Rashtrapati Bhavan. He was holding the post of Defence Secretary prior to this new assignment. He is taking charge at a difficult time when CAG is under sharp attack from the government  for its reports on assessment of Rs 1.76 lakh crore loss in allocation of 2G spectrum. These reports came out during the tenure of Vinod Rai, who superannuated yesterday after a five-and-a-half year eventful tenure as the head of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG).
