Thermometers can’t prevent heart attacks: Big Four flay proposals on ‘dominance’, joint audit

Deloitte, KPMG, and other large firms oppose most of the key measures proposed in a controversial discussion paper floated by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs last month.

The Big Four accounting firms, under scrutiny following a series of financial failures — IL&FS, DHFL, and now Yes Bank — have strongly opposed amendments proposed by the government in their regulatory framework. In February, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) floated a consultation paper seeking views from stakeholders on potential amendments to the laws to enhance audit
comments by MCA secretary Injeti Srinivas that “one size fits all” might not solve the issue and that a “nuanced approach” is need of the hour. With some proper data analysis and clear determination of policy outcomes, Srinivas and his team might be able to tailor a magic suit that fits everyone. ( Graphics by Mohammad Arshad)

Message from Planet Labs’ eye in the sky: India is a medieval knight in the age of modern warfare

Satellite pictures of the Galwan valley region shared by US-based Planet Labs exposed China backtracking on the agreement with India to disengage. While the images did help India foster its case in shaping global opinion, it also exposes the country’s unpreparedness in advanced technologies. The episode underlines the urgent need to nurture companies in satellite imaging and space technology.
