DTA Jhapa is conducting RMG public audit for payment made after September 2016 in three different clusters planned on 17th, 20th and 22nd of March 2017. On 17th March, public audit at cluster III (RMGs of 04DR010, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17 DRCNs) was completed successfully as per schedule.
The programme started with introduction session where all participants including DTA team and RMG members introduced themselves briefly to others. It was followed by objective session, where DTL cleared the purpose of conducting public audit and its importance. RMG members were then presented with some slide presentations on ‘RMG selection process’, ‘RMG contract’, ‘Implementation procedures’ and ‘RAP 3 10 points workers briefing card’ by GE and IoW. Under the payment verification session, RMG members verified check amount against the actual paid amount which was displayed in a slide. As a sample, one member from each group was asked to sign on a blank sheet so as to verify it against the signature done in payment certificate sheet. All members were also asked if they are satisfied with the payment received. At the end of the programme, DTL answered on some grievances made by RMG members which were mostly related to insufficient tools and safety gears.
