In this regard, the matters are clarified hereunder: -

Members may take note of the following FAQ under “FAQs relating to professional ethics of members pertaining to Bank Assignments” appearing at the website of the ICAI at :-

  • Q. 13 Whether the Concurrent Auditor of a Branch of a Bank can undertake the assignment of LFAR of the same Branch?

  • A. The concurrent Auditor of a Branch can undertake the assignment of LFAR only with respect to Branches which are not subject to Statutory Audit. With respect to Branches which are subject to Statutory Audit, the LFAR assignment shall be undertaken by the Statutory Auditor.

Miscellaneous Certification
