    Well said James sir. Heavy work load with poor fee for Concurrent Auditors.We CAs select and choose banks who pays reasonable fees. Like other profession we also protest in somany ways.

  2. James Antony says:

    Look at the fee structure!!!!. Ridiculous!!! Let we, CA’s, unite and boycott this bank. They want to have a concurrent audit in the name of a CA firm and want the work to be done by a retired banker. How do they think we will manage with this paltry fee after paying the ex-banker? Let them directly appoint ex bankers.

  3. v .rathakrishnan says:

    workload of CAs in the Concurrent Audit with poor
    fee. The CA Institute will with regard to fees in the Concurrent Audit of Banks.

    • M.S.PENDHARKAR says:

      This bank and all other banks are trying to exploit our profession by throwing burdensome professional & legal responsibilities on us without adequate remuneration. They also threaten action for misconduct/blacklisting in case of some mistake. They expect highly qualified experienced CAs with Disa qualification to work at such an alarming low fees.They should at least double the fees.
