Observing that there is a need to improve the quality and depth of audit, he said the Reserve Bank has taken a host of steps in consultation with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) for improving the audit of banks and financial institutions.

Listing out some of the recent measures, he said, the risk-based internal audit system for commercial banks was strengthened in January this year.

Das said RBI has been stressing a strong governance framework in banks, NBFCs for building a resilient financial sector.

“With globalization and increasing complexities of the financial system, audit as a public good has become vital for a sound, stable and vibrant financial system,” he said.
