Appointment of auditor other than retiring auditor

This query is : Resolved 

21 June 2016 Dear Sir,

A auditor was appointed in for a single financial year e.g. 01 April 2015 to 31.03.16. Now the management wants to change the auditor in next financial year as the term of existing auditor has been expired.

If, I gone plainly, with the provisions of Companies Act 2013 or even Companies Act 1956, in case of appointment of new auditor other than RETIRING AUDITOR, special notice need to be given.

My question is :

1. what is the interpretation of retiring Auditor.
2. If a auditor whose term has been expired after the end of financial year then is it a burden on the company to appoint that existing auditor again.
3. Should I need to give special notice to said auditor whose term has been expired and we no longer need to appoint again.

Please also quote some legal issues based in issue if any.

Views of all my respected senior are solicited.

Thanks and warm Regards
Naresh K Sharma
