Company Audit

In case of appointment of first auditor of a govt company if BoD doesn't appoint the auditor shareholders must appoint within next 30 days or 60 days? As in study material it is after 60 days of BoD but in lecture sir mentioned 60days including 30 of BoD

Within 60 days is not after expiry of 30 days. That is the plain language of law.

No sir I'm talking about "Government Company" and the screenshot you attached is of other than govt company In case of Govt company Sir said that Shareholders have sixty days in which 30 of BoD are included so effective 120days. Whereas I believe it should be 60 after failure of BoD so effective 180. So sir please clarify what is correct

Here the sixty days period includes thirty days allowed to BOD. Please note that for thirty days "next" is used. But for sixty days "next" is not used.

Thank you Sir!! I was just confused because of that McQ in scanner
