Auditors appointment-rectification

30 January 2023 An urgent query -pls help

A Pvt Ltd co had appointed X as its statutory auditors in 2019 for 5years till FY 2023-24.
Later on they developed some differences. In 2021-22 after the AGM for 2020-21(AGM date 30/11/2021) the company appointed another auditor Y as its auditors for 5 years in place of existing auditor X without intimating him and by oversight some jr staff in the company filed ADT-1 on 20the June 22 for auditor Y.But auditor officially resigned on 20th Sep 2022 after the settlement of his account and thereafter filed ADT-30th Sep 2022.
Now the situation is that form ADT-1 for appointment of new auditor has been filed before (ie on 20th June,22) the filing of form ADT-3 on 30th Sep 22 for outgoing auditor. Is this a serious non-compliance if it is left as it is.

Can anyone suggest any way out to rectify this.

What if the company files another ADT-1 after 3oth Sep 22(say 10th oct) appointing auditor Y as auditor in casual vacancy to conduct the audit for FY 2021-22 and then re-appoints him auditor for 5 years in the AGM of 2022(the co has time to hold AGM till 30/09/2022)
