Now, Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) in a press release issued today has stated that actions are initiated against Professionals guilty of fraud and all complaints against them are being reviewed. A High Level Committee (HLC) has been constituted for suggesting revamp of the disciplinary systems of Chartered Accountants (CAs), Company Secretaries (CSs) and Cost Accountants (CMAs).

Also, it has been stated that steps are underway for setting-up National Financial Reporting Authority (NFRA), an independent body to test check Financial Statements, prescribe Accounting Standards and take disciplinary action against said errant professionals.
