Clause 49: Audit Committee

As per section 177 of the Companies Act, 2013 read with Rule 6 of Companies (Meetings of Board and its powers) Rules, 2014, every listed company and all other public companies with paid up capital of Rs. 10 Cr. or more; or having turnover of 100 Cr. or more; or having in aggregate, outstanding loans or borrowings or debentures or deposits exceeding Rs.50 Cr. or more, to have an Audit Committee which shall consist of not less than three directors and such number of other directors as the Board may determine of which two thirds of the total number of members shall be directors, other than managing or whole-time directors.
The revised Clause 49 expands the role of the Audit Committee with enhancing its responsibilities in providing transparency and accuracy of financial reporting and disclosures, robustness of the systems of internal audit and internal controls, oversight of the company’s risk management policies and programs, effectiveness of anti-fraud and vigil mechanisms and review and administration of related party transactions of the organization.
