CAG GC Murmu chosen as external auditor by OPCW

India’s Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) GC Murmu has been chosen as the external auditor by a prestigious intergovernmental organisation working for the elimination of chemical weapons.

External Affairs Ministry said, the Hague-based Conference of State Parties of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) selected the CAG as its external auditor for a three-year term starting 2021.

The appointment was made through an election process at the OPCW conference yesterday where India received overwhelming support ahead of others.

The MEA said, India’s election was a recognition of its standing among the international community as well as the professionalism, high standards, experience globally and competitive bid by the CAG of India.

India was also selected as a member of the Executive Council of the OPCW representing Asia Group for another two-year term during the OPCW Conference of State Parties.
