Requirement for PSBs to complete Statutory Audit by 15th May withdrawn

Requirement for PSBs to complete Statutory Audit by 15th May withdrawn. Earlier the Govt had specified a uniform schedule for Statutory Audit of Public Sector Banks after closure of accounts on 31st March of the financial year

Finance Ministry has withdrawn the circular which required that all public sector banks to follow a uniform schedule and inter alia complete the statutory audit latest by 15th May

As per the extant direction issued, the Ministry had issued the instruction in view of that many public sector banks, their annual financial results are declared in the month of May / June and annual general meetings are called in June, July or even late to get the annual financial results ratified by the shareholders of the bank. The dividend is paid to the shareholders of the Bank only after the annual financial results are ratified by the shareholders of the banks.

The earlier instructed uniform schedule for statutory audit was as under:

  (Latest by)

Adoption of accounts by Audit Committee of Board (ACB) and the Board of the Bank 18th May
Submission of results to RBI and Gol 25th May
