Committee to review disciplinary rules for accounting professionals

Panel to suggest ways for speedy disposal of misconduct cases

by Janhavi Behere

The ministry of corporate affairs has constituted a committee to review disciplinary rules & regulations that govern chartered accountants, company secretaries and cost accountants. The committee has been entrusted the task of suggesting amendments for speedy disposal of disciplinary cases. It is likely that the committee will set a time limit to conclude disciplinary proceedings and end the two-stage method of issuing orders. The committee will also be responsible for proposing ways to strengthen existing mechanisms of professional institutions, create more than one director and consider the role of government nominees in the appointment process. The six member committee has to submit its report within 60 days to the ministry.
