Auditors; Please Accept The Responsibility

The recent fraud at one of the leading bank in India has again started the discussion within all the stakeholders as who is liable. While both the leading political parties are blaming each other citing the time lines of extending such loan and it recovery, the process of deciding the ownership also started slowly.

Few of the auditors on their part immediately got involved in shifting the blame to management either by getting cited openly or through muted motion.
