Based on its investigation in the CCD case, NFRA — the regulator for auditorsand firms engaged by large and listed companies — found that ASRMP and Co and chartered accountants A S Sundresha, Madhusudan U A and Pranav G Ambekar, who performed engagement audit, are guilty of professional misconduct. The firm has been slapped with a Rs 1-crore penalty. The three partners (CAs) in the firm face a penalty of Rs 5-10 lakh.
“NFRA’s investigations inter-alia revealed that the Coffee Day Global’s auditors for FY19 failed to meet the relevant requirements of the Standards on Auditing (SA) and provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 and also demonstrated a serious lack of competence,” an order issued on Thursday said.
The auditors are also charged with their failure in evaluating a potential conflict of interest.
