2Scope and Principles of Cooperative Audit Cooperatives are user-owned enterprises (unlike joint stock companies which are investor owned) working on commercial principles to ensure proper flow of economic resources to its members and for their general well being. UCBs are the lower tier of the cooperative structure with direct access to its members and connecting them to the higher tiers of the structure.
3Being democratic institutions, cooperative societies need to empower its members with powerful tools to ensure that the management of these institutions is truly democratic and professional.Audit and Audit Report are example of such tools.Failure to get the books of account audited and to publish the annual report in time is an indication of poor health and ineffective management of the cooperative.
4Historically, the responsibility for audit of these institutions is cast on the Registrar of Cooperative Societies (RCS) who is also the regulator and the administrator of Coop. Banks.However in some states, the role has been bifurcated with Audit of Coop. Banks (along with other cooperatives) having been shifted to a separate Directorate without disturbing the basic hierarchical reporting structure.This bifurcation to some extent has ensured professional independence of auditors in those states where the Directorate of Audit is independent of the RCS.
5Audit in Banks.Audit is a systematic examination of books of accounts with relevant supporting documents such as vouchers, bills, receipts and other documents to ascertain and/or to verify the financial operations.To report whether the balance sheet of Coop. Banks has been properly drawn up so as to give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Bank and whether the profit and loss account for the period under audit gives fair view of the profit or loss of the Bank.
6Audit in Cooperative Banks. Audit in Coop. Banks is a more comprehensive inquiry into the general affairs and management of the Bank, its governance in accordance with applicable statutory obligations and its byelaws and rules.To verify its financial record keeping, propriety of transactions and adherence to basic internal controls and procedures.It is therefore a financial and an administrative audit.
7According to the Maclagan Committee cooperative audit extends beyond the bare requirements of the Societies Act and should embrace an enquiry into all the circumstances which determine the general position of the Bank.It would, for instance be the duty of the auditor to notice any instances in which the Act, rules or byelaws have been infringed upon, to verify the cash balance and certify the correctness of the accounts to ascertain that loans are made fairly for proper periods and objectives and on adequate security, to examine repayments in order to check book adjustments and improper extension.Further generally see that the Bank is working on sound lines and that the committee, the officers and the ordinary members understand their duties and responsibilities

51Credit Limit to Dairy Farm Rs. 25 Lacs. Auditors’ remarks : As the dairy products are highly perishable in nature it is advised to not to classify hypothecation on such stockCredit Limit :Rs – Dates are not mentioned in any security document
52In 52 accounts with credit limit of Rs In 52 accounts with credit limit of Rs (two crores thirty six lacs ) stock statements not received for last 3 month. It should be treated NPA this may lead to additional provision.Bank had additional provision but it is advisable to insist for classification of such accounts as NPA; this will increase % of gross NPA; in this case total advances : Rs.90 croresNPA Rs Crores% of NPA 7%If NPAs of Rs.2.36 crores are added the % of NPAs will increase to 9%
53One bank had not shown 22 accounts as NPAs auditors remarked that the number of NPA account was reported wrongly.The balance outstanding in respective accounts was NIL and only interest was to be recovered; the amount of interest was shown as CONTRA items. As and when interest was recovered entries were made to reduce contra items and credit the amount to interest account.On receipt of recovery in NPA the bank used to credit the same to principal amount first.The auditor has objected to this.
54This is a case of appropriation of amount on recovery This is a case of appropriation of amount on recovery. The law of appropriation incorporated in the Indian Contract Act. (section 59 to 61) allows bank to take amount of recovery first to principal or interest (rule in Claytons case) But such policy is required to be adopted by a board resolution and declared in notes on accounts/change in accounting policy.
55Loan against vehicle:Auditor : loan has been sanctioned as hypothecation (i.e. pledgement against stock). However in this case stock cannot be provided.

62Called explanation in course of audit: one auditor has given a letter to the bank during course of audit, which inter alia states.“It is observed that overdue accounts are 109 where as NPA accounts are 81. All overdue accounts are NPA but bank has declared 81 NPA accounts out of 109. overdue accounts. Remaining 27 are NPA but are not declared NPAs. Kindly explain why such accounts are not declared as NPAs with your views and justification”
63Bank’s reply : RBI guidelines for income recognition and asset classification (IRAC) Assets (i.e. outstanding of accounts) are declared as NPAs for the purpose of making provision which may ultimately effect the profit. In the 27 accounts there is no outstanding debit balance in any of them. Hence no provision is to be made even if they are declared NAPS. For these accounts norms relating to income recognition are to be applied Interest is overdue and not taken as income but is shown as contra items.
64In an account limit was Rs. 1 In an account limit was Rs crores in this account ad-hoc additional limit of Rs. 95 lacs was allowed for one month in this case only demand promissory note for the additional amount was taken.Auditor : no additional document so as to create appropriate additional charge over the security already obtained was taken or registered by bank. In absence of this, ad-hoc limit may be termed unsecured advance and may be violation of exposure limit.
65For Guarantee issued:Vi I collateral security obtained?Auditor: yes in most of the cases the collateral security taken is already lying with the bank as security for other facilities.In case of loan sanctioned against receivable, bank should obtain age wise receivables statement. Showing figure action of outstanding under and above 90 days.(Bank should not allow drawing against bills due by end of 90 days)
66While sanctioning loan to any member the prudential and creditworthiness of guarantor/member not considered.In case of CC hypo account bank should consider only paid stock for considering D/power. Bank has completely overlooked the paid stock concept even though huge amount of creditor are shown in trial balance unpaid stock is taken into consideration while working out the D/power.The computer programme does not provide appropriate check on D/P in number of cases while allowing operation the DP is ignored and drawing is allowed is excess of DP.

70The variation between CRAR as calculated by the bank (23 The variation between CRAR as calculated by the bank (23.7 %) and as assessed by I.O. (2.4 %) was due to higher Tier-I capital calculated by the bank by not reducing shortfall in the provisions to the extent of Rs lacs. (Provision against NPAs, Standard assets, difference in GL)Bank had not amortised the premium every year by charging to Profit and Loss Account. The erosion was Rs.3.47 lakh on account of amortisation of premium upto March 31, The manager of the bank had taken Rs.1.38 lakh in cash from the bank for payment to advocate in but could not submit relevant bill till December 2011 Bank had not imparted any training to staff in last 10 years.
