    There is no proposal for recruitment of Auditors and Accountants. The numbers shown in the information on the website of CAG are actually the total no. of sanctioned strength of posts of Auditors and Accountants.

  2. Vineet Kumar Sinha says:

    This is fake news. The information on CAG’s website is about invitation of comments from their offices on the proposed changes in recruitment rules of Auditors and Accountants. Please remove this article from your website.
