The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has ordered an inspection into the affairs of the company after reports of financial wrongdoings came into the light.

Yesterday, shares of the company fell 20% after the company in a regulatory filing said that an internal probe uncovered some irregularities in the financial statements of the company.

The filing said, "while working on one of its priority tasks of seeking refinancing of certain facilities and as a part of conducting financial analysis in this regard, the Operations Committee was made aware of some unauthorized transactions by certain employees of the company".

The probe was triggered after auditors of the power equipment maker resigned a few months ago.

An audit committee of the company flagged off unauthorized transactions by certain employees of the company leading to an understatement of not only the company's liabilities but also advances to related and unrelated parties of the group.

Reports state that the company is planning to conduct a detailed forensic investigation to establish the accountability of wrongdoings and will take requisite legal actions to protect its interest.
