Rs 87.58 lakh and Rs 121.89 lakh respectively for  printing works entrusted by NHM, Directorate of Health Services and others in previous years which were  further outsourced by the Department of Printing and Stationary to  unqualified firms/traders/individuals/without floating tender (NIT),without approved rate, without formalities code, without rate quotation and others.
