The Union Home Ministry will soon depute a team to take up audit of finances of the Puducherry government, Lt Governor Kiran Bedi said Friday. Officials of the territorial government should be “prepared to answer the questions the team members would raise,” she said in a communication to the media.

She said Puducherry “is poor not because it does not have the resources but because revenue generating departments are not being proactively administered.” The former IPS officer said Puducherry officials should focus on priority areas of revenue generation on a regular basis.
