Government Orders an Audit of Byju’s Account Books

Recently, the central government ordered an audit of Byju’s account books. After this audit, an internal evaluation of the company’s affairs will be conducted. Based on the findings, the government will decide whether the case warrants further investigation by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) or not.

Auditor Resigns Following Investigation

Following the regulatory investigation, one of the largest audit companies resigned as Byju’s legal auditor. The audit report for the financial year ending on March 31, 2022, is still pending, primarily due to the lengthy duration of the company’s financial disclosures. Moreover, the financial year 2020-21 has not yet begun due to issues related to any ongoing litigation. In place of the resigned auditor, Byju’s appointed BDO (MSKA and Associates) as their legal auditor.
