    Why only SRB? or is this the beginning of the end of big 4. Put soon others too , the big 4 on such ban – auditors of ILFS, PWC of Satyam Scam is still doing audit on annual extension. They take huge money but collude with owners/ directors at the cost of public. Also the Rating agencies of ILFS . Encourage local talent and create Indian global consulting firms. It is only the brand its all local people.
