The list of 18672 audit firms, which have been recommended by the RBI for statutory branch audit assignments in public sector banks during the year 2008-09 is hosted on the website.
Members are requested to click on the link given below the announcement. Thereafter push the keys (Ctrl+f) together. A small window would open at the top of the page. Please enter (Unique Code Number) in that window. The search result would reflect UCN No, Firm Name, Address, District, State and category of the firm with the Bank where name of the said firm has been forwarded by RBI.
Further following may be noted:
It may not be necessary that all the audit firms whose names are forwarded by RBI to various banks are allotted branch audit by the respective banks, as sufficiently higher number of audit firms are forwarded to banks in order to enable them to allot audit assignments as per their logistic requirements. It also often happens that some of the audit firms whose names are forwarded are either not allotted any audit assignment or are allotted assignment by some other bank, after their names are returned back to RBI due to various reasons and are re-allotted/ considered for re-allotment, if any, required by some other bank.
members are hereby advised that (i) no telephonic/e- mail enquiries would be entertained from individual members/ audit firms at the offices of Reserve Bank of India; and (ii) in case any error creeps in during data transfer or otherwise, the records available with Reserve Bank of India would be final.
