Briefing media in New Delhi yesterday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, the NFRA will act as an independent regulator for the auditing profession which was one of the key changes brought in by the Companies Act 2013.
The jurisdiction of NFRA for investigation of Chartered Accountants and their firms will be extended to the listed companies and large unlisted public companies.
The Cabinet also gave nod to the Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill - 2018 to deal with those escaping overseas to avoid getting caught.
