     The following are the broad guidelines for internal audit functions, roles and duties:-

A)   Objectives of Internal Audit

      Internal audit is an independent appraisal function of the Corporation. It objectively
examines, evaluates and reports on the internal control systems after through verification.
The internal audit should exercise due care in fulfilling his responsibilities. It should
adequately plan, control and record his work on daily basis. It should identify and evaluate
the organization's internal control system as a basis for reporting upon its adequacy and
effectiveness. The internal auditor should ensure that findings, conclusions and
recommendations arising from internal audit work are communicated promptly to the
Branch under intimation to Head office and should seek response on the same. He should
ensure that arrangements are made to follow up audit observations to monitor what action
has been taken on them. He should be able to exercise judgment, express opinions and
present recommendations with impartiality. The internal audit, notwithstanding his
employment by the Corporation, should be free from any conflict of interest.







                                               6
B)   Organizational relationships

      The internal audit prepares the internal audit plan in consultation with the Branch/Head
office so as to identify the areas of concern. Matters which arise in the course of the audit be
discussed directly with the Branch. Further, the discussions and comments of the Branch is
necessary on the monthly audit report. The Internal audit is an independent appraisal
function within the organization whereas the statutory auditor has a statutory responsibility to
express an independent opinion on the financial statements. The internal audit will be
required to allow access to the records and reports to the Statutory/CAG audit as and when
conducted. Since internal audit evaluates an organization's internal control system the
Statutory/CAG audit may need to be satisfied that the internal audit function is being
planned and performed effectively..

C)   Performance and Control.


      The internal audit should be able to show that his work has been performed in a way
which is consistent with this guideline. The internal audit should possess a knowledge of the
aims of the Corporation and the internal control system and aware of the relevant applicable
laws.

       Internal audit work should be planned, controlled and recorded in order to
determine priorities, establish and achieve objectives, and ensure the effective and efficient
use of audit resources. Internal audit is needed to ensure that internal audit objectives are
achieved and work is performed effectively. The internal audit needs to be able to ensure
that work delegated has been properly performed and detailed working papers are
maintained.

       The main objective of the internal Audit is to ensure adherence to management
policies and directives, safeguard of assets, completeness and accuracy of records and
compliance with statutory requirements etc.


D)   Reports

      Before issuing the final report, the internal auditor should normally discuss the contents
with the Branch Head, and may submit a draft report to them, for confirmation of factual
accuracy and their comments. Final monthly internal audit report is required to be submitted
to the HO under copy to branch. The Audit report should include audit findings, Comments
