Audit Diwas and Accountants General Conference, 2023

'Driving Change 2030: Empowering Actions to Shape Our Future'


Second Audit Diwas, 2022

Speech of Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar- Vice President of India

“Delighted to be part of the Audit Diwas celebrations today.

Congratulations on CAG foundation day, and for organising the 30th Accountants General Conference to mark the occasion.

Critical importance of the institution of the CAG was significantly indicated by Dr. B R Ambedkar in the Constituent Assembly. He reflected:

“I am of the opinion that this dignitary or officer is probably the most important officer in the Constitution of India. He is the one man who is going to see that the expenses voted by Parliament are not exceeded, or varied, from what has been laid down by Parliament.”

Speech of Shri G C Murmu - Comptroller and Auditor General of India

1. Honourable Vice President of India, Shri Jagdeep Dhanker ji, distinguished guests, officers and staff of the Indian Audit and Accounts Organisation.

2. On the occasion of Audit Diwas, it is an immense honour and privilege to have with us the Honourable Vice President of India.

3. Sir, for all of us here, your presence at this event is not only inspiring, but also an acknowledgment of the key role the institution of the Comptroller & Auditor General of India plays in our nation. Our profound gratitude to you, Sir, for joining us today.

4. Audit Diwas commemorates the day the first auditor general took charge of this office in 1860. Over time, the role of the CAG has evolved to assume wider responsibilities to strengthening democracy and governance of our country. This day is a reminder to every member of this institution to follow our motto of लोकहितार्थ सत्यहिष्ठा - the path of truth for the larger public good. This is a day to reaffirm our commitment to good practices, personal integrity, and high professional standards. It also affords a chance to each of us - officers and staff of the institution - to engage with our stakeholders and communicate to the citizens of this country our dedicated service to them as a public audit authority.
