New Delhi: Chartered accountants’ apex body ICAI on Thursday said it has constituted a nine-member panel to study the systemic issues in the IL&FS crisis, amid the government intensifying efforts to address the problems at the diversified group. The setting up of the committee by the ICAI comes days after it sought explanation from audit firms that carried out statutory audit works at the IL&FS Group in the past few years. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), which has more than 2.95 lakh members, has also written to RBI and the Serious Fraud Investigation Office seeking details about IL&FS issue.
