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. The honorable finance minister in one of the public event recently directed the torch towards the various auditors for not detecting the fraud. This does question the entire process of auditing done by various auditors involved in the process. 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.

An open letter to the newly elected President of ICAI

Firstly, congratulations on assuming the highest office of the Institute. I hope you would feel honoured of having been given an opportunity to serve the CA fraternity while your partners at office are busy reeling in the additional client workload on your behalf which you have been getting for your firm from the time you got elected as a Central Council Member. You would now be signing several more MOUs for the ICAI at exotic locations which benefit just a few members but we are not complaining about it because talk about priorities and you just have 1 year in office.
