CAG report on Modernisation of Army Base Workshops (ABWs) and implementation of GOCO Model

As per a recently tabled report by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), the Indian Army’s plan for on 'Modernisation of Army Base Workshops (ABWs) and implementation of 'Government Owned Contractor Operated (GOCO)' model' is delayed, with the original timeline for implementing the system lapsing in December 2019.  One of the main reasons cited for this delay has been due to administrative inefficiency and delays in the decision to execute the modernisation project, either on turnkey basis or through a combination of procurement and others. The ABWs carry out repairs and overhaul of weapons, vehicles and equipment of the Indian Army.
