This scam happened during the 2013 flood relief operations in Uttarakhand by government officials, where they have submitted inflated and forged bills. The documents showed officials billing the state exchequer with Rs. 194 for half a litre of milk, staying in hotels which cost over Rs. 7,000 per day. Government officials allegedly distributed relief funds twice to same persons, purchased 1,800 rain coats from same shop for three consecutive days, and submitted fake fuel bills. The scam surfaced during the hearing carried out by state information commissioner Anil Sharma where a RTI petitioner submitted documents showing massive irregularities. Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat has ordered an inquiry into alleged inflated and forged bills submitted by state government officials.
